Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 40 min.
Four-tier glasses : Photo of step #1
Peel 3 tomatoes, cut in strips then in dice.

Put in a strainer, salt and mix. Leave to stand about one hour, to draw out some of the juice.

Stage 2 - 5 min.

Prepare the vinaigrette by mixing 4 tablespoons olive oil with 1 lime juice.

Salt and pepper, and add a little chives.

Add this vinaigrette to the drained diced tomatoes. Set aside.

Stage 3 - 20 min.

Prepare 250 g Cauliflower tabouleh but without tomatoes.

Stage 4 - 7 min.
Four-tier glasses : Photo of step #4
Start asembling glasses: Put guacamole into each one up to ¼ of the height.

The best way is to use a forcing bag to put guacamole tidily right into the bottom of the glass.

Stage 5 - 7 min.
Four-tier glasses : Photo of step #5
Using a fork, add diced tomato to another ¼ of the height (to halfway).

Be careful to not put too much vinaigrette with the tomatoes.

You might need to push the tomatoes down to compact them a little.

Stage 6 - 7 min.
Four-tier glasses : Photo of step #6
Add another ¼ height of cauliflower tabbouleh ( push this down too if needed).

Stage 7 - 7 min.
Four-tier glasses : Photo of step #7
For the last ¼, add houmous. Again, using a forcing bag is easier.

Stage 8 - 3 min.
Four-tier glasses : Photo of step #8
Finally, add a pinch of chopped chives or a pinch of paprika or curry on top.

It's ready.

Remarks

You can prepare the four mixes the day before, even preparing the glasses, in which case seal the top of each glass with plastic film, and remove from the fridge at least one hour before serving.

[Crème brulée]
Crème brulée
Crème brûlée (burned cream) is quite easy to prepare: it's a simple egg-cream dessert. The only difficulty is in making the delicious crunchy caramel layer on top. The perfect crème brulée (for me) is a cold and soft cream, with on top a nice hot caramel crust. This is a completely new version...

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
