Welcome

Welcome in my blog !
First let me tell you that, as it is the translation of a French blog, I use the metric system for my measurements and all the temperatures are given in Celsius !

New category: I tasted it for you. The idea is to pick up random products that are unknow to me, to taste them, cook them, describe them and give my opinion on them.

Enjoy !

3 flavours verrine: bell pepper cream, feta cheese and guacamole

Français.
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
2 avocados
3 soup spoons fromage blanc
2 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon cumin
The juice of ½ green lemon
Mixed herbs
Olive oil
Powdered ginger
Chilli powder
Salt and pepper


Preparation
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.

Bon appétit!!
