10 William Street: House-made ricotta with baby vegetables


You'll need

1 zucchini, thinly sliced lengthways on a mandolin 660 ml mild extra-virgin olive oil 125 ml (½ cup) white wine vinegar 1 eggplant, peeled in stripes, thinly sliced 1 tbsp oregano 6 baby beetroot, trimmed 2 garlic cloves, crushed 2 bunches Dutch carrots, scrubbed and trimmed 20 heirloom cherry tomatoes ½ long red chilli, thinly sliced 5 basil leaves, coarsely chopped To serve: baby basil   Ricotta 2 litres (8 cups) milk 250 gm plain yoghurt Juice of 1 large lemon

Method

  • 01
  • For ricotta, heat milk in a large saucepan to 90C on a thermometer. Whisk through yoghurt, lemon juice and 2 tsp sea salt. Remove from heat, set aside until curds form (15-20 minutes). Strain curds through a large sieve lined with muslin, then set aside until firm (2-3 hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, place beetroot and garlic in a deep baking dish, cover with water and set aside to infuse (2 hours). Preheat oven to 180C. Cover beetroot with foil and roast until tender (50 minutes-1 hour). Drain, then, when cool enough to handle, peel, halve, place in a small bowl and cover with 250ml oil.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, simmer vinegar and 1 litre water in a saucepan over medium heat, add eggplant and simmer until tender (5-10 minutes). Drain well, cool, then cut into quarters. Place in a bowl with oregano, cover with 125ml oil and set aside to marinate (1 hour).
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, heat 60ml oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add tomato and cook until starting to soften (1-2 minutes). Remove from heat, transfer to a small bowl with chilli and basil, cover with 60ml olive oil, set aside to marinate (1 hour).
  • 05
  • Meanwhile, preheat a char-grill pan over high heat, drizzle zucchini with 2 tbsp olive oil, season to taste and char-grill, turning once, until golden (1-2 minutes). Place in a bowl with remaining 60ml oil and set aside.
  • 06
  • Blanch carrots until tender (2-3 minutes), refresh, drain and set aside.
  • 07
  • To serve, remove vegetables from oil with a slotted spoon, season to taste, arrange on plates and top with ricotta and baby basil.
