Cherry Tomato Arugula Salad with Pine Nuts and Blueberries

Thursday, July 27, 2017 | © 2017 | | © 2017 |

This easy and tasty summer salad is simple to make and ready in just 15 minutes. It is bright and colourful, and bursting with flavour thanks to fig balsamic vinegar syrup and flaxseed oil. The toasted pine nuts add an extra special touch to this vibrant cherry tomato salad, that you can make all year round, but tastes the best when tomatoes are at their peak in summer.

  • 2-3 tbsp Pine nuts, toasted
  • 50 g Arugula salad
  • 400 g Cherry tomato medley, halved
  • 100 g Blueberries
  • 1 tbsp Flaxseed oil
  • 1 tbsp Fig balsamic vinegar syrup
  • Handful of basil leaves
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  1. Spread the pine nuts on a baking sheet and bake at 180C/350F, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown, 5 to 10 minutes. You can also do this in a skillet. Just put the pine nuts in a dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until golden, about 3 minutes.
  2. Arrange the arugula leaves on a serving platter. Place the halved cherry tomatoes and blueberries on top. Drizzle with flaxseed oil and fig balsamic syrup. Sprinkle with toasted pine nuts and basil leaves. | © 2017 | | © 2017 |

Thursday, July 20, 2017 | © 2017 |

This apricot sauce recipe, mildly sweet with enough heat, is made with fresh apricots and pickled jalapenos.

  • 50 g Coconut sugar
  • 5 pc Cloves
  • 1 tsp Allspice berries
  • 1 tsp Juniper berries
  • 15 g Sea salt
  • 1 tbsp Mace powder
  1. Wash, pit and coarsely chop the apricots. Place chopped apricots, pickled jalapeno, apple cider vinegar, apple juice and coconut sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cook, uncovered, over moderate heat for about 25 minutes.
  2. Use a mortar and pestle to crush the cloves, allspice, juniper berries and salt. Mix in mace powder. Add the spice mixture to the apricots and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Use a stick blender to puree the mixture. Bring the sauce again to a boil. Transfer the sauce to bottles or small jars. Cool completely and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. | © 2017 | | © 2017 |

Thursday, July 06, 2017 | © 2017 |

Featuring a refined sugar free hazelnut chocolate spelt crust and filled with a smooth raspberry cream and topped with fresh raspberries and grated white chocolate, this raspberry mascarpone chocolate tart is bound to be a perfect summer favourite. If you are short on time, then skip the crust and just fill the cream in glasses. Feel free to use strawberry or blueberry.

Chocolate Hazelnut CrustRaspberry Mascarpone Filling
  • 150 g Spelt flour
  • 50 g Hazelnut meal
  • 2 tbsp Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 50 g Erythritol granules
  • 125 g Butter, chilled and chopped
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp Iced water
  • 200 g Raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 180 g Mascarpone
  • 100 g Sour cream
  • 2 tbsp Erythritol granules
  • 50 g White chocolate, melted
  • 5 g Gelatine granules
  • 30 ml Water
  • Fresh berries for garnishing
  • Grated white chocolate for garnishing
  • Mint leaves for garnishing
  1. To make the crust, in a medium bowl, using fingertips, rub spelt flour, hazelnut meal, cocoa powder, erythritol granules, butter and a pinch of salt together until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add in iced water and mix with a knife until dough comes together. Shape dough into a disc. Wrap in plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.
  2. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured piece of baking paper to 3mm thick. Use the pastry to line the prepared tart pans. Using a fork, prick the bottom of the dough all over and chill for 30 minutes.
  3. Position the rack in the centre of the oven and preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Grease four 12-cm loose-bottomed tart pans. Line the tart shells with baking paper and fill with pastry weights or baking beans, bake for 12 minutes then remove paper and weights or beans and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes. Remove and cool completely.
  4. Cook raspberries in a saucepan over low heat for 2 minutes or until beginning to break down. Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl. You will need 100 ml raspberry puree. Set aside.
  5. Process the Mascarpone, sour cream, raspberry puree and erythritol in a food processor until smooth. Add the white chocolate. Process until combined.
  6. Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Heat in a microwave for 30-40 seconds and stir until completely dissolved. Cool slightly and add the gelatine mixture to cream cheese mixture and beat until smooth. Pour into prepared pan. Smooth the surface and chill for 4 hours or until set.
  7. Garnish the tartlets with fresh raspberries, grated white chocolate and mint leaves. Serve immediately. | © 2017 | | © 2017 |
