The Truffle Concord Grape Sorbet Royal Egg By GreenChefs Golubka

Ever since making our savoury avocado truffles, we’ve been thinking about creating a dessert version of this much loved dish. Here is a quick and simple way to prepare an elegant and challenging dessert.

The “truffles” are filled with a light chocolate mousse and coated with cacao nibs and ground pistachios. The silky flavours of avocado and chocolate are complemented by the textural, crunchy coat.

Late summer and early fall in the produce isle means grapes, all kinds of them. We’ve been thoroughly enjoying grapes for about two months now, making Muscadine grape juice almost daily and obsessing over a heavenly fig, grape, and cinnamon shake (let us know if you’d like the recipe).

Concord grapes are a special treat. They contain seeds, which nowadays seems rare and exciting. Most grapes sold in the States are seedless – a true shame considering the myriad health benefits of grape seeds. The Concord grape sorbet, besides completing the dish with beautiful jewel tones, adds a nice amount of sweetness to the mild tastes of the truffle and bitter notes of the cacao nibs. The sorbet tastes a bit like grape jelly and serves as an exciting companion that pleases both eyes and palate.

Strawberry Guava Summertime Sorbet

Yum. That’s all I gotta say about this incredible creation. Now I am on the west coast at the moment where the produce at the Farmers Market is in full gorgeousness so please forgive me if you are reading this and do not have these fruits at your local market…BUT if you are lucky enough to have them, do yourself a favor and get your ass to the Farmers Market and buy some organic Strawberries and Guavas straight from your trusted organic farmer. If you can’t find guavas where you live and you wanna try another tropical fruit, substitute mango or fresh young coconut meat for the guavas. And if you wanna keep it easy peasy, you can always just make a straight up strawberry sorbet! Either way, you and your guests will thank me. Period. These combinations are sooooooooooo easy and delicious. You may wanna jump back and kiss yaself!

For the Sorbet:

3 boxes of fresh Strawberries, washed and stemmed

1 box of fresh Guavas, washed and peeled

pinch of Sea Salt

2/3 cup agave

1 TB Vodka (yes I said Vodka — it helps with the freezing and the texture!)

1 TB real Vanilla extract

1/2 cup unsweetend soymilk or organic cream (non-vegan)

Juice of half a meyer lemon (you can use a regular lemon if you can’t find the meyer)
