Cheese, Apple and Pear Tart – Easy Gourmet Vegetarian Dessert Recipe

 

 

Goats cheese, apple tart and pear is a simple puff pastry recipe topped with a drizzle of chili lime dressing. The simple and easy recipe requires 30 minutes to an hour preparation time, approximately 10 to 30 minutes cooking time, and can serves 5.

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 1 tablespoon goat milk
  • 8 oz. goats’ cheese – log-shaped chevre
  • 14¼ oz. puff pastry
  • 2 cooking apples
  • 2 pears
  • 2 limes – juice only
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 fresh red chili
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • green salad

 

Directions:

 

  •   Preheat the oven to 360F.
  •   Roll out the puff pastry to a rectangle slightly larger than a sheet of A4 paper.
  •   Place the pastry on a greased baking sheet, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  •   Peel, core and finely slice the apples and pears and toss with half the lime juice.
  •   Using a hot, wet, sharp knife, cut the chevre in half lengthways.
  •   Finely slice the chevre into thin, half-moon shapes.
  •   Beat together the egg white and the goat milk.
  •   Take the puff pastry rectangle and brush the egg white mixture around its edges.
  •   Place alternate slices of apple and pear in neat lines across the rectangle, leaving a  2cm (¾in) gap of pastry around the edge.
  •   Place the chevre slices so that they overlap with the fruit slices.
  •   Bake the fruit tart for 15-20 minutes until the pastry is crisp, the fruit is golden and the goats’ cheese has browned.
  •   Meanwhile, using a mortar and pestle, grind together the chili and sugar to form a paste.
  •   Mix in the remaining lime juice, olive oil, salt and freshly ground pepper and mix together well.
  •   Once the tart is cooked, remove from the oven and allow to rest for five minutes.
  •   Drizzle over the chili lime dressing and serve with a green salad.

Creamy and cheesy!

 

This is one of the best homemade scalloped potatoes with cheese, garlic and rosemary. The recipe requires 25 minutes preparation time, approximately 45 minutes cooking time, and can serves 6, and is  easy, quick and impressive.

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 5 ounces goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup goat milk
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 1/2 pounds small Yukon gold potatoes, scrubbed with peels on*
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

 

Directions:

 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a 1 1/2 to 2-quart casserole dish with baking spray. Set aside.
  • With a sharp chef’s knife, slice the potatoes into very thin slices, 1/8-inch-thick or less. Place the potatoes in a   large bowl, drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with the minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat the slices    as evenly as you can.
  • Spread 1/3 of the potato slices in the bottom of the prepared dish. Crumble half of the goat cheese over the  top. Repeat with the next 1/3 of the potatoes, then the remaining goat cheese, then finish by layering on the final third of the potatoes. The potatoes may discard some liquid as they rest in the bowl. If this happens,  simply leave the liquid in the bottom bowl and shake the potato slices gently in your hands to remove excess  liquid before layering them in the dish.
  • Pour the milk evenly over the top of the dish, then sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Cover the dish with foil, bake for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake for 15 additional minutes, until the top has browned. Scatter the rosemary over the top. Serve hot.

The most inspired Asian, Chinese recipe to try!

 

If you have the bare minimum Asian condiments in your kitchen, like soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, hot chili sauce, hoisin sauce,  you can use a little of that tasting as you go. I prefer to mix together all kinds of interesting and varied sauces on a whim, as I go.

 

 

Ingredients for the wantons:

 

 

Ingredients for the chili sauce:

  • 2 parts soy sauce
  • 1 part sesame oil
  • 1 part rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 part Honey
  • 1/2 part hot chili sauce
  • sesame seeds for garnish

 

 

Directions:

  • First make the sauce by mixing all the sauce ingredients together with a whisk. Refrigerate until needed.
  • Heat two inches of oil in a 2 quart saucepan to about 350 degrees.
  • Put a small dab of goat cheese in the center of each wanton wrapper. Run a wet finger around the edge and fold the wanton in half diagonally. Press with your fingers to seal the dough.
  • Bring the two outer corners up and overlap them, sealing with a bit of water. You can also leave the wantons in a triangle shape, if you desire.
  • Drop the wantons in the hot oil and let fry for about a minute to a minute and a half, just until they are golden and crispy. Flip them halfway through. Drain on a paper towel.
  • And serve hot with the chili dipping sauce on the side.

 

This is the appetizer everyone goes wild for!

 

* Sweet chili dipping sauce would go great with the crispy wontons, as well.
