Guacamole asado hecho con aguacates asados para un toque único. ¡En una manera sencilla, impresione a sus invitados!

Guacamole asado hecho con aguacates asados para un toque único. ¡En una manera sencilla, impresione a sus invitados!

Aguacate está lleno de grasas saludables, 4 gramos de proteína y 975 miligramos de potasio que es casi el doble que un plátano. Con 18 de los aminoácidos recomendados en el consumo diario, aguacate es una fruta súper.

Pensamos que tomaríamos este favorito de frutas y añadiríamos un nivel de sabor para sus recetas de aguacate por asado de madera el aguacate.Este sencillo paso aportará todos los beneficios nutricionales de la fruta con un nuevo sabor audaz.

Ingredientes frescos

Una vez que haya asado de madera sus aguacates en una parrilla de gas o carbón (consulte nuestra publicación en esta técnica), debe recoger los siguientes ingredientes:

  • 3 aguacates asados
  • 1 diente de ajo finamente rallado
  • 1 pimiento serrano o jalapeño finamente picado
  • 1/4 de cebolla blanca, finamente picada
  • 2 cucharadas de jugo de lima recién exprimido
  • 1 cucharada de cilantro picado
  • 1 cucharadita de sal kosher

Además de los ingredientes,necesitará una licuadora o la mano y el mortero.Prefiero el mortero y la peste para poder controlar el nivel de puré que se produce a cada ingrediente.

Poniendo en capas el sabor

Primero, es necesario triturar la carne de aguacate asado. El mejor guacamole tiene algo de calidad gruesa, así que tenga esto en cuenta cuando estés triturando la carne. Cuando el aguacate está machacado, agregue la pimienta y combínelo también. Puede seleccionar cualquier pimienta si desea calor o no. Si prefiere un guacamole que no tiene sabor picante, añade un pimiento dulce.

Después del aguacate y la pimienta se mezclan, es hora de agregar los otros ingredientes. Agregue primero la cebolla picada seguida de jugo de lima, cilantro y sal. Combine todo bien, asegurándose de que los trozos no sean demasiado grandes para cualquiera de los ingredientes.

¡Prepáranse para servir el guacamole asado!

La mejor parte del guacamole asado es como simple que es hacerlo, sin embargo, los sabores son tan frescos e intensos. Después todos los ingredientes se combinan, recoger todo el contenido del mortero o licuadora y colocar en el plato de servir o tazón. Me gusta rematar mi guacamole con un poco de pimentón ahumado para que tenga un poco de color. Ten en cuenta que no necesita usar esto con chips de tortilla. Este es un excelente ingrediente para una hamburguesa o sándwich de pollo asado y aun funciona bien con ensalada de verduras. Encantará cómo el sabor de la madera añade otra dimensión a esta comida favorita.

Bocados de plátano ahumado

Si se unió a nosotros para nuestra serie sobre el ahumar plátano, ahora es el momento de aprender lo que puede hacer con esta fruta sabrosa. Esta receta de bocados de plátano ahumado es un aperitivo perfecto, postre favorito de los niños, o aun un postre de fiesta. Necesita:

 

  • 6 onzas de chocolate semi dulce
  • 1/4 de taza de coco rallado, lo más fino, lo mejor
  • 4 onzas de almendras cortadas, trituradas
  • 2 cucharadas de mantequilla
  • 4-5 plátanos ahumados(ver nuestra serie anterior sobre este proceso si se loperdió)

 

También necesitará una cacerola para fundir el chocolate o un tazón seguro para microondas, palitos o algo similar para insertar en los segmentos de plátano, y una pequeña espátula de pastel para esparcir el chocolate. También mantendría a mano un poco de agua caliente encaso de que el chocolate se endurezca. Si es oocurre, simplemente agregue 1 cucharadita de agua caliente a la vez, mezclando bien, hasta que restaure la consistencia suave.

 

Preparando:

Es muy importante que prepare los otros ingredientes antes de derretirse el chocolate como quieras para evitar que el chocolate se endurezca. Tome sus 4 onzas de almendras cortadas y agréguelas a una bolsa. Puede utilizar un mazo de cocina o un rodillo, lo que es más fácil para usted. ¡Asegúrese de machacar las almendras – no hacer polvo de almendras ni harina! A continuación, prepare una bandeja de hoja con papel de cera y prepare sus palitos para juntar los bocados de plátano ahumado. Nombré esta receta por las pequeñas explosiones de sabor que ellos dan en solo un bocado.

 

Derretir el chocolate para bocados de plátano ahumado:

Una vez que los otros ingredientes están listos y su bandeja de hoja con papel de cera está lista, es la hora de derretir el chocolate semidulce. Puede hacer esto en unas pocas maneras. En una caldera doble, que es el método preferido, en una cacerola a baja temperatura, o en un microondas. Su elección-sólo asegúrese de obtener una consistencia que no es demasiado delgada ni gruesa por lo que el plátano se recubrirá fácilmente. Agrego 2 cucharadas de mantequilla al chocolate para producir un resultado brillante. Derretir hasta que quede suave teniendo cuidado de no ir más allá de esa etapa, pues el chocolate se endurecerá. Si va demasiado lejos, simplemente agrega 1 cucharadita de agua caliente a la mezcla para recuperarla.

 

Ensamblando de los bocados:

¡Con el chocolate derretido ahora estamos listos para el montaje de nuestros bocados de plátano ahumado! Tomando su palito, inserte en el centro de un segmento de plátano. Recuerda, había cortado mis plátanos en segmentos de 2 pulgadas cuando hice el proceso de ahumar. Ahora mojarse en el chocolate y comienza a difundir en una capa uniforme usando una pequeña espátula de pastel. Sólo tiene que conseguir la parte superior y los lados recubiertos para que puedan rodar en los siguientes dos ingredientes.Una vez más, si su chocolate debe endurecerse, simplemente agregue 1 cucharadita de agua caliente para traerlo de vuelta.

 

Con nuestro segmento de plátano cubierto en chocolate, ahora estamos listos para “el rollo”. Primero coloca un poco de almendra triturada en un pedazo de papel de cera. A continuación, enrollar el plátano cubierto de chocolate en las almendras teniendo cuidado de n opresionar hacia abajo.Sólo deja que las almendras se peguen por su cuenta.A continuación, el coco rallado.Usted puede poner el coco en una hoja de cera, así o dejar en un recipiente pequeño que puede acomodar el tamaño de su plátano.Deje que el coco llene todos los espacios entre las almendras y luego se acoste en una bandeja cubierta con papel de cera. Estos tendrán que endurecerse un poco en el refrigerador.

Our Delicious Smoked Grape Flatbread with Brie and a little fresh Rosemary

Our Delicious Smoked Grape Flatbread with Brie and a little fresh Rosemary

Listen to our blog

Smoked Grape Flatbread- Even if you aren’t the biggest fan of Concord Grapes, this recipe completely changes the flavor of this variety of grape to produce a very pleasing outcome. I’ve gone to my own personal grapevines and selected grapes at their peak for a flatbread recipe that is super easy and scrumptious. It all starts with the grapes so go to your own vines, a neighbor’s, a farmer’s market or fresh market, and pick up a quart or two to bring to the grill for wood flavor infusion to make the ultimate in flatbread. Remember, any grape you find will work for this recipe, so go ahead and pick your favorite.

Grape Prep & Wood Infusion

The first steps to our recipe are related to the grapes. I’ve visited my grapevines and selected grapes that our deep purple and firm. Bringing them to the kitchen, I remove them from the vine, ensuring all stems are out, rinse under cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. I’ve started my grill by lighting only one burner. To that side, I’ve prepared a metal smoker box with wood chunks. My grill needs to heat up to 250-275°F. While it’s heating, I prepare a sheet pan with a single layer of clean grapes. Then we’re ready to add wood flavor.

Two zone cooking on a grill or smoker is the easiest since the temperature will remain steady and you won’t need to constantly watch the grill. After achieving a 250°F temperature, I place the sheet pan of prepared grapes on the unlit side of the grates. The smoker box of chunks should be releasing a consistent smoke at this stage. Put the lid down and allow the grapes to infuse for about 20 minutes. I then return to the grill and rotate the pan, lid down again, and allow to smoke for an additional 10-15 minutes.

Tasting Notes: There is no rule regarding the type of wood you should use for the smoking. Just be sure it is only hardwood and not a completely dried out piece of wood or you’ll find it will burn up almost immediately. Remember, you want smoke not flames from the wood. Positioning as close to the burner as you can get is best for the placement of the smoker box.

Dough Time

With the grapes smoking on the grill, I’m going to starting the dough for the flatbread.

Taking 2 cups of unbleached bread flour, I add it to a stand mixer bowl with a ½ teaspoon of kosher salt, whisking together. In a measuring cup, I place 1 cup of warm water that is between 110-115°F. I sprinkle into the water 1-1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast and wait 5 minutes for it to bloom. Fitting my stand mixer with a dough hook, I start the mixer on low speed and gradually add in the bloomed water/yeast mixture from the measuring cup. Turning up the speed on the mixer, I continue to knead the dough until it begins to ride up the dough hook, pulling away from sides of the bowl.

Taking a large bowl, I add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the bottom and place some bread flour on a clean work surface to roll the dough out.

Removing the flatbread dough from the mixer bowl, I place the dough on the floured surface and begin to hand knead the dough into a ball. I place the ball of dough into the oiled bowl, rolling the dough in the oil and up the sides of the bowl to ensure everything is nonstick. Place the dough in the bottom of the oiled bowl, cover with a towel and place in a warm place to rise until double in size which will take about an hour. Once risen, prepare a sheet pan with two tablespoons of oil, coating the pan’s surface with the oil using your fingers. The oil will ensure the bottom of the flatbread crisps while cooking.

Simple Fresh Ingredients

Punch the dough down and place on the oiled sheet pan, stretching the dough out on the pan until it almost touches the sides. Time for the fresh ingredients. Start by slicing then tearing into pieces Brie cheese, placing over the top of the flatbread dough. Sprinkle with fresh rosemary leaves. Press the smoked grapes into the dough’s surface until all three ingredients cover most every spot of the dough. Cover the dough with a cloth and allow the flatbread to rise a second time for another 20 minutes. Then bake at 400°F until the cheese is bubbly and the bread surface is golden brown. Remember, the grill works great for the flatbread cooking as well and for additional wood-fired flavor, use wood chunks at this stage as well.

Tasting Notes: Feel free to use other seasonal fruits and even vegetables from the wood-fired grill for this recipe. Swap out the herb and cheese based on the main ingredient and you’ll have a versatile recipe for any seasonal food.

Peach season! One that lends so many different options to your food experience. Whether consumed raw or used in entrees or desserts, I aim to bring another flavor level to this much anticipated seasonal fruit by adding wood-fired flavoring. Then I’ll take these flavorful peach halves and introduce you to a peach relish that is perfect for topping fish and seafood.

Visit your favorite farm stand, fresh market, or your own peach tree and pick three firm, fresh peaches and bring them to the kitchen for preparation before hitting the wood-fired grill. Oh, and we have plans for additional recipes with smoked peaches so do some extras while you have the grill or smoker going.

Easy Prep for the Grill or Smoker

Skinning our freshly harvested peaches

#peaches

Although yellow is the most common peach available, know that there is a white variety as well. Both have easy to remove pits that make them easy to prepare for your favorite recipes.

Start by peeling the skin from the peaches, you’ll need 3 for this recipe, though I’m doing a full sheet pan for additional recipes. Once peeled, using a paring knife, slice thru the center of the peach along the pit. Gently separate into two halves then remove the pit. Place the pitted and peeled peach half cut side down on a sheet pan. Continue with the remaining peaches. I’ll be using my gas grill set up with a smoker box of wood chunks to bring a smoky flavor to the fruit. I’ve placed my smoker box directly on my heat diffuser to get the wood hot and smoldering quickly. My pan of peach halves is placed on the unlit side of the grill. Lid down on the grill and allow these peaches to tenderize slightly and infuse the smoke flavor. I’ll check on them in about 15 minutes.

Tasting Notes: Keep in mind, flavors from wood on a gas grill will not be as intense as those on a charcoal unit. Keep this in mind when you select the equipment to infuse the smoke flavor into the peaches.

Relish Ingredients for Smoked Peach Relish

Adding our wet ingredients to the pepper mix

#peppers

While the peaches are absorbing all that great hardwood flavor on the grill, let’s get started on the base for our peach relish. To begin, I’ll get my mortar although you can also use a mini food processor. Place one minced garlic clove into the mortar. Add one chili pepper (serrano, jalapeno, & Hungarian make good choices) that has been seeded and minced. To that, add 2 tablespoons of light brown sugar. Using your pestle or the processor, pound or pulse until a paste is formed. Remember, fresh ingredients will make for the best relish flavors.

With the base paste made to our peach relish, it’s time to add the liquids to balance the spicy and sweet flavors. Start by adding 2 tablespoons of water, 2 tablespoons of lime juice and 3 tablespoons of oyster sauce. Transfer the relish base to a large bowl. Now return to the grill and remove the peach halves. These should be browned from the smoke infusion. Remove 6 halves and dice each. Add them to the bowl with the base. Let’s get ready for the final flavors.

The Ultimate Relish Flavors

Adding fresh herbs added to our rice

#freshherb

The final flavors are the fresh herbs that need to be added right before serving. This includes ¼ cup of fresh, chopped cilantro and 2 tablespoons of fresh mint. As peaches tends to be a delicate fruit meat, it’s important to gently mix everything together; don’t over combine. Serve immediately with your favorite fish or seafood. In fact, this is even great with just some toasted bread. I’ve served mine today with brown rice and simple seasoned shrimp with a side of yellow waxed beans. Delicate yet full of balanced flavors that will surprise you coming from a smoked fruit.

Ember Fired Eggplant on the rack cooking above a bed of hot coals. This technique provides the heat for cooking and the aroma of the wood smoke

Ember Fired Eggplant on the rack cooking above a bed of hot coals. This technique provides the heat for cooking and the aroma of the wood smoke

EMBER FIRED EGGPLANT WITH FETA TARTS Click To Tweet

You’ve heard me mention before how great it is to ember or coal fire certain foods, with a good majority of those items falling in the fruit category. One of the best fruits to use this technique with is eggplant.

Not of Nutritional Value

we selected two nice and plump eggplants for our ember cooking Eggplant, also called aubergine, is part of a flowering plant grown for its edible fruit. This is a thick-skinned fruit that has a meaty quality to its flesh. In fact, it can make for a filling meal. Eggplant contains a lot of water – 92% to be specific! It is not known to be a contributor for daily nutritional intake. Despite all that, Eggplant remains a favorite ingredient to cook with.

Nestling is Key

When cooking in the coals, it is best to use medium sized eggplant. It doesn’t matter what variety you select, the technique for cooking in the coals will remain the same.

Starting the fire

First, you need to start with a good wood fire, using clean hardwood. In order to do this technique successfully, you need to ensure that there are no flames left in the fire, just hot coals. You’ll know the coals are ready for the cooking when they are completely grayed over. If your grilling area is large enough, you can stage a couple of burning wood pieces to provide additional heat to the area. Just don’t cook directly in those flames.

preparing the hot coals for the eggplant. you want these to burn down leaving only the heat and no flame to burn the eggplant. Ember cooking is only over hot coals.When the coals are ready, make sure the embers are in an even layer and then place the eggplants side by side in the embers. I like to use a fine screen in the bottom of my charcoal area to aide in heat retention. Now, leave these untouched for about 10 minutes. After that time, you can turn the eggplant to ensure all sides get evenly charred. If you make a large enough fire, you can bury the eggplant completely in the hot coals and not have to do any turning. That technique will require about 30 minutes of cooking time.

Chef Bert teaches Neighbor Tom about ember cooking

#chefbertandtom

Blackened, Charred Skin Makes It Ready

Once the Ember Fired Eggplant has tenderized in the coals, it’s time to carefully remove it. Cool the eggplant, so it won’t burn and can be handled. Then, slice each eggplant open from end to end, and gently scoop out the flesh. Be sure to leave all the charred skin behind. If you’re ready to use this in a recipe, then no need to do anything more to the eggplant. If you plan on using it later, you must prevent the eggplant flesh from turning dark by incorporating 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and enough water to cover the flesh. When finished, it’s best to store the Ember Fired Eggplant in a glass jar, bowl, or other container.

6 Needed Ingredients

To make the Ember Fired Eggplant with Feta Tarts, you’ll need a muffin pan and the following food ingredients:

  • Flesh from 1 medium size coal-fired eggplant
  • ¾ cup crumbled feta cheese (about 3 ounces)
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped pistachios, plus 2 tablespoons for topping the tarts
  • ground coriander about ¼ teaspoon
  • ¼ teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 5 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • Extra virgin olive oil for brushing dough and preparing muffin pan

Wood Flavored Eggplant Mixture

removing any char from the fire and then chopping up the eggplant to be added as the tart fillingRoughly chop the wood fired eggplant. Then transfer to a medium bowl and add feta, 3 tablespoons chopped pistachios, coriander, red-pepper flakes, and mint. Season with salt and fresh ground pepper and stir gently to combine.

Making the Tarts

Lightly oil the muffin pan cups. Lay 1 sheet of phyllo dough on a board and lightly brush with oil. Stack 4 more phyllo sheets on top, brushing each with oil. Cut the stacked sheets into 6 equal squares. Carefully, pick up each square and place in a muffin cup, gently pressing in place. Fill each dough cup with about ¼ cup of eggplant mixture. Gently fold over the corners of the dough to enclose the filling as a tart. Brush tops with oil and sprinkle with crushed pistachios. Then Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, then serve.

What can I roast over a fire?

Just about any fruit or vegetable can be roasted over a fire. Vegetables and fruits with a dense, husky outer skin do very well when grilled with gas, charcoal and wood fuels. Eggplant is ideal for roasting over an open fire or directly on hot embers (ember cooking).
