Balsamic Berry & Apple Fruit Tostadas
Balsamic berry and apple fruit tostadas are a heavenly treat with a crispy wonton base topped with a delicious assortment of fresh fruit and mint.
- 8 square or round wonton or dumpling/gyoza pastry
- 1 tsp coconut oil melted
- 2 tsp coconut sugar
- 1 can unsalted chickpeas liquid only, refrigerated overnight
- 3 Tbsp icing sugar
- ¼ tsp cream of tartar
- 150 g fresh strawberries tops removed and very finely diced
- 75 g fresh blueberries cut into quarters
- ½ red apple skin on, very finely diced
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 Tbsp fresh mint leaves finely chopped
- ½ Tbsp fresh tarragon leaves finely chopped
- 8 fresh mint leaves use small leaves
Preheat the oven to 160°C (320°F) and line a large baking tray with baking paper.
Arrange the wonton pastries on the baking tray, so they don't touch. Using a pastry brush, brush the top side of each pastry with the coconut oil and then sprinkle the sugar on top. Bake for about 8-10 minutes until crispy and golden brown. Set aside to cool.
Using a handheld or standing mixer on high speed, beat together the chickpea liquid and cream of tartare for 5 minutes until semi-stiff peaks form. Then add 1 Tbsp of icing sugar at a time and beat for 1 minute between each addition. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine all of the chopped and diced fruit salsa ingredients. Spoon the fruit salsa onto the wonton crisps. Pipe or spoon some aquafaba froth on the side and garnish with a mint leaf. Serve immediately.
- Wonton pastry can be found in the refrigerated section at your local Asian grocer.
- Be sure to only use unsalted chickpeas as salted chickpea liquid will bring out the flavour of the chickpeas. Using chilled liquid will help the aquafaba meringue mixture achieve stiff peaks.
- You can prepare all parts of the recipe ahead of time and assemble just before serving, making this the perfect dessert for your dinner party.
