Green pea crumb
Yoghurt and lime sorbet
Nothing beats using your own fresh produce or materials around the house. If you’re missing a thing or two, tick the items you need to add to your shopping list.
Green Pea Crumb
25 g freeze dried green pea powder
25 g caster sugar
25 g plain flour
Pinch of table salt
25 g unsalted butter, softened
1000 g milk, whole fat 3.5%
70 g milk powder
170 g caster sugar
60 g liquid glucose
40 g trimoline
100 g cream, 35% fat
200 g Greek yoghurt, thick
Juice and zest of one lime, fresh
5 g stabiliser
Place the dry ingredients into a small mixing bowl and mix well together.
Add the butter and rub in with your fingertips until all of the lumps have been removed.
Form a ball of dough and wrap tightly in cling film, firm in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Grate the dough finely using a microplane onto a baking tray lined with silicone paper.
Spread the crumb evenly onto the tray and dehydrate in an oven preheated to 70°C for 4 hours.
Remove from the oven and cool before reserving in a sealed plastic container.
Yoghurt and Lime Sorbet
Mix 100g of the sugar with the stabiliser.
In a saucepan place the milk and the milk powder.
Start to heat gently and add the trimoline, glucose and the sugar.
At 40°C add the cream and the sugar/stabilizer mix.
Heat this mix to 85°C for two minutes before straining and cooling immediately.
Stir in the yoghurt and the lime juice and zest and churn.
Segment the lime and lightly char with a blow torch.
Using a sharp knife, finely cut into thin strips at the last minute.
Putting It All Together
Spoon a small amount of the pea crumb onto the plate
Quenelle a portion of the sorbet on top of the crumb
Place a charred lime onto the sorbet
Arrange fine strips of mint
