Anzac biscuit desserts

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

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.

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.

La mian with pipis and ginger


Noodles and ginger are the perfect building blocks to almost any stir-fry. Pipis are a handsome addition, but even without them this is a tasty, quick noodle fix.

You'll need

50 ml Shaoxing wine 500 gm pipis, soaked in cold water 250 gm fresh la mian noodles 60 ml (¼ cup) peanut oil 30 gm ginger, grated on a microplane 2 garlic cloves, grated on a microplane 4 spring onions, finely chopped, green parts reserved 60 ml (¼ cup) chicken stock 30 ml light soy sauce 1 tbsp dark soy (or kecap manis) 2 tsp Chinkiang vinegar

Method

  • 01
  • Bring Shaoxing wine to the boil in a large saucepan, add pipis, cover and cook, shaking pan occasionally, until they open (3-5 minutes). Drain, reserving cooking liquid, and set aside.
  • 02
  • Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, add noodles and cook until tender (2-3 minutes). Drain.
  • 03
  • Heat peanut oil in a wok over high heat, add ginger, garlic and spring onion, and stir-fry until fragrant (1-2 minutes). Add drained noodles, chicken stock, soy sauces, vinegar and a pinch of white pepper, and turn noodles to coat with sauce. Add a little reserved pipi liquid to achieve your preferred sauce consistency. Serve scattered with spring onion greens.
