Anzac biscuit desserts

These four desserts have one thing in common – Anzac biscuits.

Persian red lentil soup with tahini, beetroot and fried mint

Lentil soup may not sound like the sexiest of dishes, but rest assured, it's a heart-warmer. We've added warming spices and served the soup with a dollop of garlicky tahini. Thin slivers of shaved raw beetroot add earthiness and texture - the beetroot is also excellent simply grated and served piled on top. The poached egg is optional, but highly recommended.

Six sexy panna cottas

We say si to these six takes on the Italian classic. From coffee and caramel to red wine and figs, panna cotta proves to be a versatile dessert to suit all palettes.

Eclair recipes

Here are four spins on the classic French eclair, from Flour & Stone's pillowy choux pastry with salted caramel to a colourful take with strawberry-flecked creme fraiche filling and sprinkled pistachios on top.

Brioche-crusted prawns with coriander and green chilli aïoli


You'll need

200 gm brioche, thinly sliced (about ½ a loaf; see note) For deep-frying: vegetable oil 12 medium uncooked prawns, cleaned, tails intact For dusting: seasoned plain flour 2 eggs, lightly beaten To serve: lime cheeks   Coriander and green chilli aïoli 3 garlic cloves 1 egg yolk 15 ml Champagne vinegar 75 ml each canola oil and olive oil ½ tsp each coriander seeds and caraway seeds 2 tbsp each (firmly packed) mint and coriander, finely chopped long green chillies, seeds removed, finely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Place brioche slices on an oven tray and bake until lightly toasted (4-5 minutes), set aside to cool, then process in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Set aside.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for coriander and green chilli aïoli, cook garlic in a small saucepan of boiling water until tender (4-5 minutes), strain and mash with a fork until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, add yolk and vinegar and whisk to combine. Add oils in a thin steady stream, whisking continuously until thick and emulsified and thinning with a little hot water if necessary. Meanwhile, dry-roast coriander and caraway seeds until fragrant (1-2 minutes), then finely grind in a mortar and pestle. Stir through aïoli with mint, coriander and chilli, season to taste and refrigerate until required. Makes about 1 cup.
  • 03
  • Preheat oil in a deep-fryer or deep saucepan to 180C. Halve prawns lengthways, keeping intact at tail end. Dust in seasoned flour, dip in egg, then brioche crumbs, shaking off excess in between. Deep-fry, in batches, turning occasionally until golden and cooked through (2-3 minutes). Drain on absorbent paper, season to taste and serve hot with coriander and green chilli aïoli and lime cheeks.
Note Brioche is available from David Jones food halls and select supermarkets, bakeries and delicatessens.
