Mango recipes

Nothing says summer like mangoes. Go beyond the criss-cross cuts - bake a mango-filled meringue loaf with lime mascarpone, start off the day with a sweet coconut quinoa pudding with sticky mango, or toss it through a spicy warm weather Thai salad.

Garlic recipes

This pungent yet essential little bulb sets the foundation for countless dishes across the globe. Slowly roast it alongside spatchcock or whole snapper, or grind it down to thick paste for a rich alioli. When it comes to garlic, the possibilities truly are endless.

Torta di riso


You'll need

450 ml milk 300 ml pouring cream 160 gm arborio rice Scraped seeds of 1 vanilla bean 50 gm dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), coarsely chopped 40 gm hazelnuts 4 egg yolks Finely grated rind of 1 orange 100 gm raw caster sugar 100 gm butter, melted and cooled 50 gm finely chopped glacé orange 1 egg ¼ tsp finely grated nutmeg ¼ tsp ground cinnamon For dusting: icing sugar   Brown sugar pastry 250 gm (1⅔ cups) plain flour 60 gm brown sugar 120 gm cold butter, coarsely chopped 3 egg yolks

Method

  • 01
  • For brown sugar pastry, process flour, sugar and a pinch of salt in a food processor to combine, add butter, process until mixture resembles fine crumbs, add yolks and process to combine. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, bring together with the heel of your hand, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour to rest.
  • 02
  • Roll out pastry on a lightly floured surface to 3mm thick, line a 22cm-diameter tart tin, trim edges and refrigerate to rest (1 hour).
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, bring milk, cream, rice and vanilla seeds to the boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender (15-20 minutes).
  • 04
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Spread chopped chocolate on a tray and freeze until required. Spread hazelnuts on an oven tray, roast until browned (4-5 minutes), rub with a tea towel to remove skins, coarsely chop and set aside. Whisk yolks, orange rind, 80gm sugar and half the butter in a bowl to combine, stir into rice mixture and set aside to cool slightly. Stir in glacé orange, hazelnuts and chocolate, spoon into pastry case, filling to 5mm below rim (there may be a little mixture left over) and set aside.
  • 05
  • Whisk egg, spices, remaining butter and remaining sugar in a separate bowl, drizzle over rice mixture and bake until golden and firm to touch (45 minutes-1 hour; cover with foil if tart browns too quickly). Stand for 15 minutes, then dust with icing sugar and serve. Tart will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for 2 days; bring to room temperature before serving.
This recipe is from the April 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

This delicately scented rice tart is lovely eaten warm from the oven, but can also be made a day ahead. It goes beautifully with pears baked slowly in a mixture of sugar syrup and plenty of Marsala with a little orange peel.
