Radicchio Roses

 

 

Radicchio roses, this is the cutest tasty dish that I could create to show off the beautiful Radichio. It is rather healthy and contains olive oil as the only fat source. The leaves provide a good source of fibre. 

The Radicchio roses dish was created, to serve as a starter or canapés. Radicchio roses are neutral and go well with any main meals or wines.

Ingredients:

Radicchio 200g (1 head)

Potatoes 600g (5 or 6 large ones)

Spinach 300g (3-4 bunches)

Blue cheese (100g-150g)

Olive oil

Rainbow peppercorn (Half a teaspoon)

Gold peppercorn (a pinch)

Gold Himalayan salt (a pinch)

 

 

Method:

  • Peel Potatoes and boil till soft and crumbly.
  • Mash Potatoes with ground rainbow peppercorn and gold salt.
  • Mashed potatoes should be set aside.
  • Take spinach leaves off stalk and rinse.
  • Put spinach into a pot and pour boiling water, until immersed.
  • Leaves should be wilted without needing to boil.
  • Chop wilted spinach leaves and add to potatoes
  • Dice blue cheese and add to potatoes.
  • Mix all ingredients by hand (use some nitrile gloves. Nitrile gloves warm up in the potatoes, semi-melting the cheese and giving an even mixture.)
  • Separate Radicchio leaves, rinse and cut each leaf in half
  • Line cupcake tray with foil and fill with potato mix
  • Stick leaf halves into the sides around the potato mix to create a flower.
  • Drizzle lightly with olive oil
  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes being careful not to burn the radicchio roses (the leaves are sensitive)
  • The dish is ready when the leaves turn golden brown.
  • Sprinkle Radicchio roses with gold salt
  • Sprinkle your Radicchio roses with gold pepper
  • Serve Radicchio roses immediately as they cool down very quicklyThe Radicchio used here was purchased from Turnips at Borough market

When searching for good quality vegetables and fruits, I highly recommend trying Turnips. They have attractive delicious veggies that make you want to eat healthy. I personally eat with my eyes as well as stomach, so find this helpful for motivation.
