If you have been reading and trying a few of our recipes, you might have noticed our slight obsession with lemon. Whenever we feel that something is missing in a recipe, we tend to reach for a lemon. Lemon pairs particularly well with ricotta, but, then again, we think it tastes great with almost anything. These rolls looks pretty impressive on a buffet table, but are surprisingly simple to do. If you can’t find passionfruits use frozen pulp or finely chopped mango.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 courgettes
2 teaspoons sea salt
250g ricotta cheese
5 passionfruits
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 handful basil leaves, coarsely chopped
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Thinly slice the courgettes lengthwise, about 6 mm thick. Place in a large colander, sprinkle with the salt and toss well. Set aside to drain for 30 minutes. Rinse well.
  2. Transfer the courgettes to a clean tea towel, pat dry and brush the cut sides with olive oil. Heat a chargrill pan on medium-high heat and griddle the slices for 4 minutes on each side, or until tender and grill marks appear. Set aside to cool.
  3. Put the ricotta in a mixing bowl. Cut the passionfruits in half and scoop out the seeds and pulp of 3 of them into the mixing bowl. Add the lemon juice, basil, salt and pepper and mix everything together.
  4. Put 1 tablespoon of the ricotta mixture at the end of each courgette slice. Roll up and place on a serving plate. Repeat with the remaining slices. Top with seeds and pulp from the remaining passionfruits.
