Blue Cheese Sauce
Ingredients (Makes about 150 ml of sauce)
150 ml Double cream
50 gm. (2 oz.) Blue cheese
½ tsp. Garlic powder
Your favorite vegetable (Steamed, boiled or grilled)
Warm cream in a small pan, when just about boiling, add the cheese and stir until it has melted and the mixture has homogenized.
Add seasoning and garlic powder according to taste
I sprinkled some sea salt on steamed broccoli and generously poured the sauce before eating.
Ingredients (Makes about 5)
1 cup Flour
½ tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking powder
½ tsp. Baking soda
50 gm. Butter (cold, cut into squares)
½ cup Yogurt
2 tbsp. Milk (For brushing)
Take a large bowl and mix together the flour, salt and both the leavening agents.
Once mixed, add butter and quickly rub it in with your fingertips.
Make a well and tip in the entire yogurt, mix well and knead to form dough. You will need to knead for a few times to get the mixture together in a ball form.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface and cut out with a biscuit cutter. I used a 2.5” inch biscuit cutter.
Line your baking tray with parchment paper and lay the biscuits on the tray. Brush the biscuits with milk.
Bake in a preheated oven 220 C (450 F) for about 10 minutes.
Note: Feel free to use any kind of yogurt, however, Greek Yogurt yields the best result.
The biscuit dough can be made in a food processor; however, I prefer to use my hands
Make sure that you do not over knead the mixture. It can cause the biscuits to be chewy, rather than flaky.
