Roasted Plums with Goats Cheese
An interesting tangy roasted plums with goats cheese dessert presented on a base of wheat flakes and Muesli biscuits. This may seem to have many components to make it look unnecessarily complex but turned out to be an interesting combination.

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. To make the biscuit, place all ingredients in a food processor and process until dough comes together. Turn out onto bench, form dough into a disc and wrap in plastic wrap. Leave to rest in the fridge for 20 minutes.

Step 2

Roll out rested dough between 2 sheets baking paper to 2 mm thick. Remove top sheet of paper, place on a baking tray and place in the oven to bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and while still warm, cut out 18 rounds using a 4cm cutter. Set aside.

Step 3

To cook the plums, place plum wedges on a roasting tray, flesh side down. Sprinkle with coriander seeds, thyme and sugar. Drizzle over port and place in the oven to roast until tender, about 15 minutes. Set aside.

Step 4

To make the goat’s cheese cream, place goat’s cheese, mascarpone, lemon zest and sugar in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Begin whisking, while slowly pouring in olive oil. Continue to whisk until light and fluffy. Transfer to a piping bag and set aside.

Step 5

To serve, pipe a small dot of goat’s cheese cream in the centre of the plate to hold the biscuit in place. Place the biscuit in the centre then pipe some goat’s cheese cream on top. Place 2 plum wedges on top and drizzle with roasting pan juices. Garnish with thyme.


My Notes
1. The original recipe recommended hazelnut meal. I found a combination of wheat flakes and Muesli easily available.
