Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tsp Agar powder

  • 250ml pouring cream

  • 150ml thickened cream

  • Fig Salad:
  • 4 figs, quartered (or other fruits)

  • 1/4 cup walnuts, toasted

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Directions

  • Line 4 ramekins with wrapping film.
  • Place the creams in a saucepan, sprinkle with the agar  and combine with a whisk.
  • Let stand for 5 minutes to allow agar to swell. 
  • Warm on medium heat until boil is reach, then simmer the mixture for 2-3 minutes while stirring, until the consistency changes slightly, indicating that the agar is dissolved.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in the cheese. Stir until well combined.
  • Pour into prepared moulds, cover and chill for 20 minutes.
  • To prepare the salad, mix the oil & vinegar together, season and toss over the remaining ingredients.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • Tip:  Pudding may ‘sweat’ when weather is humid. To prevent this, try dissolving 1 tsp of corn starch (corn flour) with the agar into the liquid that you are cooking
