Method

  1. In a pot add the olive oil, the onion, and the garlic.
  2. Cook for 5 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the flour and cook over a medium heat until the flour turns a light golden colour, and the raw flour smell has gone.
  4. Add the Nurishh Plant-Based Alternative to Camembert and whisk over medium heat until melted.
  5. Gradually add the soy alternative to milk, whisking all the time to incorporate and create a smooth custard.
  6. Sprinkle over the agar-agar, add the aquafaba and cook for a final 3-5 minutes over a low heat, whisking occasionally.
  7. Season with the salt and pepper.
  8. Allow to cool slightly before adding to the Mini Crispy Iris Cups.
  9. Heat an oven to 180°C.
  10. Lay out the Mini Crispy Iris Cups on a baking sheet.
  11. Divide the diced Nurishh Mozzarella Style Block between the croustades.
  12. Fill to the brim with the alternative to cheese custard mix.
  13. Top with the Nurishh Cheddar & Mozzarella Style Grated Blend.
  14. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  15. Allow the Mini Crispy Iris Cups to cool (they will feel soft when they come out of the oven but will firm up.)
  16. Top with chopped chives and serve.

…and enjoy!
