Eat your veg! chocolate

IMG_20160325_170433_lznI am creating this series of eat your veg! chocolate. For the first delivery, tomato and basil, yes it actually works.

Can you tell I have been playing with color, anyway here is the condensed:



Tomato Jam

  • 500g of tomatos
  • 250g of sugar

Peel the tomatos by blanching them first, cut into pieces and cook with seeds inclusive till you get jam, rocket science right!?

For more or less 2 moulds:

Basil Ganache

  • 120g of dark chocolate
  • a small bunch of basil, 8-10 leaves
  • 80g of cream
  • 15g invert sugar (optional for more shelf life)
  • 15g of unsalted butter of basil oil (I have some of this)

Get 60g cream, infuse with basil leaves, remove leaves and top up to get 60g of cream again, bring to the boil and emulsify with the cholate. Add the remaining ingredients.

Pipe some tomato jam into dark chocolate shells, half full, the rest ganache. Enjoy, up next beetroot and onion….. 🙂

Something I would be adding to these recipes, my own.

Score: 6/10
