Cheese with quince paste and figs

November 27, 2013 2 comments

Hi,

Both quince paste and figs are products very typical of autumn so I played a bit with them and get this dessert which is really simple, it takes just a few minutes to prepare and it’s delicious.

Ingredients:

  • Feta cheese
  • Quince paste
  • Figs

Simply laminate the feta cheese. You can use other cheese but the salty taste of this cheese will make a great contrast of flavors. Laminate also the quince paste and place one sheet on top of a cheese sheet. Finally laminate a fig and place some pieces over the quince paste.

Mayonnaise without egg

November 16, 2013 1 comment

Hello,

Some days ago while eating on work I listened how a woman tell other woman how to make a mayonnaise without using egg. At the end is just as simple as replacing the egg with milk, which have some advantages

  • Specially on summer you end with the risk of salmonella
  • Reduce the cholesterol supplied by the egg (you can use nonfat milk)
  • It can be preserved more time

Ingredients:

  • One measure of milk
  • Two measures of oil (sunflower oil recommended)
  • Salt
  • Lemon of vinegar
  • Ground pepper (optional)
  • Garlic (optional)

And this is extremely simple. Just add on a blender cup one part of milk (which could be nonfat milk) and two parts of sunflower oil, add also some drops of lemon juice or vinegar and a pinch of salt. Optionally you can also add some ground pepper or garlic cloves, and of course some other ingredients you like.

Place the mixer at the bottom of the cup and start mixing. In just few seconds the milk and oil will emulsionate and you need to move up and down a few time the mixer, then you’re ready.

You can use this sauce in a lot of recipes and sandwiches. I’ve used it together with some asparagus just painted with olive oil, with a pinch of salt and ground pepper baked in the oven at 350ºF (180ºC) for 20 minutes.
