500 克菜葉 500g spring greens

做法 Method

4. Add the extra virgin olive oil to the jar with a tiny pinch of salt and pepper.

5. 蓋上樽蓋並搖勻
5. Put the lid securely on the jar and shake well.

6. 試試醬汁味道,因個人喜好可添加少許檸檬汁或油。緊記醬汁應調至輕微偏酸,待加入蔬菜後仍可保持清新檸檬口味。
6. Have a taste and see whether you think it needs a bit more lemon juice or oil – you want it to be slightly too acidic, so that it’s still nice and zingy once you’ve dressed your spring greens.

7. 於大型平底鍋中注入水至半滿,加入少量鹽
7. Half-fill a large saucepan with cold water and add a tiny pinch of salt.

8. 大火將水煮沸
8. Place on a high heat and bring to the boil. Meanwhile…

9. 將菜葉對切開半,再切幼絲
9. Trim and cut the spring greens in half lengthways, then finely slice them.

10. 水滾後放入菜絲煮3至4分鐘,至菜全熟並保持嫩綠色
10. Once the water is boiling, carefully add the spring greens and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender but still bright green in colour.

11. 菜熟後,用笊篱隔去水份,滴乾水份後放回鍋中
11. Once cooked, drain the spring greens over the sink into a colander, steam dry for a minute, then tip back into the pan.

12. 再次搖勻醬汁並灑於蔬菜上
12. Give the dressing another good shake up, then drizzle it over the greens.

13. 趁蔬菜仍有餘溫,用食物夾輕輕翻炒蔬菜至醬汁全吸收,上碟並立即享用。
13. Using tongs, gently toss the spring greens in the dressing while they’re still hot to help them soak up all the dressing, then transfer to a bowl and serve straight away.

1茶匙 泡打粉 1 teaspoon baking powder
1湯匙 特選可可粉 1 tablespoon good-quality cocoa powder
天然乳酪, 伴食用 natural yoghurt, to serve

做法 Method
1. 預熱焗爐至攝氏180度/華氏350度/煤氣4度
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4.

2. 橄欖油輕抹蛋糕模的底部和邊位
2. Lightly grease the bottom and sides of a 20cm springform cake tin with olive oil.

3. 取出烘焙紙一張,剪出與蛋糕模相若的尺度寸,並置於糕模內
3. Use scissors to cut out a circle of greaseproof paper, roughly the same size as the bottom of the tin, and use it to line the base.

4. 於糕模週邊灑上麵粉,倒出多餘麵粉
4. Dust the sides of the tin lightly with flour, then tap the tin to get rid of any excess.

5. 將200克朱古力弄成小塊,放入耐熱碗內
5. Break 200g of the chocolate up into small pieces and add to a heatproof bowl.

6. 以中火把水燒熱至微滾,置耐熱碗於小鍋上,留意耐熱碗不要碰到水,直至朱古力溶化,期間攪拌
6. Place the bowl on top of a small pan of simmering water over a medium heat, making sure the bottom of the bowl isn’t touching the water, and allow to melt, stirring occasionally.

7. 當朱古力溶化後,戴上防熱手套,小心地移開耐熱碗,注意小鍋內的蒸汽
7. Once melted, use oven gloves to carefully remove from the heat and put to one side – beware of the steam when you lift up the bowl.

8. 使用刨皮器刨去除紅菜頭的皮(穿上手套可防手上染色 ),切開四塊
8. Use a Y-shaped peeler to peel the beetroot (you might want to wear gloves to do this), then quarter them on a chopping board.

9. 用食物處理器將紅菜頭刨成粗絲,放入大碗中
9. Push the beetroot through the coarse grater attachment on the food processor, then tip into a large mixing bowl.

10. 將蛋白及蛋黃分開,將蛋白放於一大碗中,蛋黃放於紅菜頭裡,然後洗手
10. Separate the eggs, placing the whites into a large clean mixing bowl and adding the yolks to the beetroot, then wash your hands.

11. 於紅菜頭碗中加入砂糖、杏仁、泡打粉、可可粉和已溶朱古力並拌勻
11. Stir the sugar, almonds, baking powder, cocoa powder and melted chocolate into the beetroot and mix together well.

12. 用打蛋器把蛋白打至硬身
12. Use an electric hand whisk to whisk the egg whites until you have stiff peaks.

13. 使用刮刀在紅菜頭混物中拌入四分一蛋白,混合後再加入剩餘蛋白,切勿過份攪拌
13. Use a spatula to fold a quarter of the egg whites into the beetroot mixture to loosen, then once combined, fold in the rest but try not to over mix.

14. 將混合物倒入蛋糕模內,用刮刀鋪平
14. Add the mixture to the prepared cake tin and spread out evenly using a spatula.

15. 置預熱焗爐內焗50分鐘,或至蛋糕升起達全熟程度
15. Bake in the hot oven for around 50 minutes, or until risen and cooked through.

16. 用牙籤插入蛋糕將中間,5秒後拉出,如牙籤沒有蛋糕漿即表示已熟;如牙籤上仍有蛋糕漿,便需要再焗
16. To check if it’s done, stick a cocktail stick or skewer into the middle of the sponge, remove it after 5 seconds and if it comes out clean the cake’s cooked; if it’s slightly sticky it needs a bit longer.

17. 待蛋糕輕微降溫後再放在鋼線架上待冷
17. Allow the cake to cool slightly, then carefully turn it out on to a wire rack to cool completely.

18. 享用時,溶化剩餘朱古力(使用上術方法),每件蛋糕可配上少許乳酪及淋上朱古力醬
18. When you’re ready to serve, melt the remaining chocolate (in the same way as above), then serve each slice with some yoghurt and a little drizzle of the melted chocolate.
