Oxheart tomato salad with sourdough miso dressing
4 oxheart tomatoes (or other dense meaty variety)
1 thumb size piece young ginger
1 bunch basil (picked)
80g Sourdough Miso
100ml kelp vinegar
80ml olive oil
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 clove garlic
30ml light soy sauce
Combine all of the dressing ingredients into a food processor and blend until emulsified. (Note, it makes enough for 6 or more portions).
Cut the tomatoes into large cubes. Peel and slice the shallot into long strips lengthwise and do the same with the ginger. Shred the ginger very finely then add to the tomatoes along with the shallots and the basil. Season the tomatoes directly with a little salt then combine everything with an appropriate amount of dressing.
Serve with burrata.
Crème anglaise with sourdough miso
250g egg yolks (about 10 large eggs)
3 tsp of sourdough miso
Whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until they start to turn a creamy white, then sieve the cornflour over the top and fold it through.
Combine the milk and cream, bring to the boil, then strain this over the yolk mixture. Do this in three batches so as not to cook the eggs. Once incorporated, pour this mixture back into a pot and cook very gently over a low heat, stirring constantly. Stir through the sourdough miso while heating. The mix should become the consistency of pouring cream. It will thicken more as it cools.
