I was searching for a first course recipe and I found this one on a French website. It is delicious, very beautiful and elegant, and it offers a great mix of flavour.
Ingredients (for 4 verrines)
2 red bell peppers
200 g feta cheese
3 soup spoons fromage blanc
2 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon cumin
The juice of ½ green lemon
Salt and pepper
Bell pepper cream: cut the bell peppers in small dices. Brown them in olive oil with a garlic clove and mixed herbs, salt and pepper. Cook for about 15 min. Then, mix them in a blender and add 2 soup spoons of fromage blanc to get a bell pepper cream. Store it in the fridge; it has to be cold when you prepare the verrines.
Feta: crush the feta with a fork and add olive oil, mixed herbs, cumin, pepper and 1 soup spoon of fromage blanc. The mixture mustn’t be too dry, you can add some more fromage blanc (or oil) if necessary. Store it in the fridge.
Guacamole: crush the avocados with a fork, add the lemon juice, 1 garlic clove, salt, pepper, ginger and chilli powder (quantity depending on the taste you want, I put 1 teaspoon of ginger and ¼ teaspoon of chilli powder).
Prepare the verrines: first put 1 layer of feta, then guacamole and then bell pepper cream. Serve it chilled.
