Baked Risotto with Roasted Asparagus@KerrygoldUSA

risotto with asparagus

Risotto. Creamy rice, a splash of wine, a big dollop of butter, and cheese, glorious cheese. What’s not to love about a dish like that? The infernal stirring, that’s what. It’s such a good, restorative, comforting dish, but really, who has the patience? Sure, it can be meditative, standing and stirring with Buddha-like calm as the wine cooks down, and ladle after ladle of broth plumps the rice. But, truly, can you give a handful of rice 30 minutes of unblinking attention while all manner of homework mayhem ignites in the other room? Here’s one way to eliminate the long stand, stir and stare: enlist your oven. Contrary to the stiff-necked (and armed) belief of cranky purists, you can bake a perfectly fine risotto. While it’s not completely stir-less, this method will cut your stove-top workout down to a couple dozen reps. And while the rice, onions and broth happily bake, you’ll have plenty of time and focus to roast asparagus with one hand, and put out homework fires with the other. And honestly, if you slipped a bit to one of those stiff-necked purists I’d bet you good money they’d never know.

  • Homemade strawberry #cheesecake spread on top of buttery brioche toast. The perfect way to change up your #breakfast routine or add a sweet treat to Sunday #brunch. #Kerrygold


    INGREDIENTS:
    2 slices of brioche bread (1″+ thick)
    3 tablespoons Kerrygold Salted Butter
    1 teaspoon granulated sugar
    1/4 cup whipped cream cheese
    1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons powdered sugar (can substitute honey or coconut sugar)
    1/4 teaspoon orange zest (or orange blossom water)
    1/2 cup sliced strawberries
    Coarse sugar, optional
  • DIRECTIONS:
    Preheat a skillet over medium heat.
    Butter each side of the bread, saving 1 tablespoon of the butter for the skillet. Sprinkle the bread with granulated sugar. Add the remaining tablespoon of butter to the hot skillet, and then add the bread to the skillet. Toast the bread on each side until golden brown, about 1 minute per side.
    Meanwhile, slice the strawberries and toss them with 2 teaspoons of powdered sugar. Set aside.
    In a small bowl, beat together the cream cheese, remaining 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and orange zest until fluffy.
    Remove the toast from the skillet, and top each slice with the cheesecake filling, followed by the strawberries. I like to sprinkle coarse sugar on top before serving, but it’s optional.

Rachel’s No-Pastry Pear and Almond Tart @KerrygoldUSA

 

This is a delicious tart and is also perfect for people who don’t want to make pastry. You can use a variety of fruit for the filling (see below).

Serves:  6
Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup (6 oz) confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 ripe pears, peeled, cored and quartered, then cut into long slices
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz) all-purpose flour
  • 4 oz almond meal, about 1/4 in thick
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp slivered almonds
  • 5 egg whites
  • Confectioners’ sugar, to serve
  • 12 tbsp Kerrygold Salted Butter, melted
Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Lightly grease the sides of a 9-inch tart pan with a removable

bottom and place a disc of wax paper on the base. If you prefer to serve this tart on the tart pan base, do not use the wax paper.

Sift the confectioners’ sugar and flour into a bowl and stir in the almond meal and lemon zest. Whisk the egg whites for 30 seconds, until just frothy, and add to the dry ingredients with the warm melted butter. Mix until smooth.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Arrange the slices of pear on top and sprinkle with the slivered almonds.

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, then turn down the heat to 350°F (180°C) and cook for a further 10 minutes, or until risen and a pale golden color. The filling should feel firm to the touch in the center.

Allow to sit in the pan for a few minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Dust with confectioners’ sugar to serve.

This is delicious with softly whipped cream.

VARIATIONS

Instead of pears, I sometimes use 4 oz raspberries or blackberries (either fresh or frozen) for the topping. Alternatively, I use 2 oz pine nuts instead of fruit. You can also make this with 4 oz peach or nectarine slices, which is particularly nice in the summer!
