Lemon and ricotta tartlets

citronricotta

Here´s a great recipe of lemon and ricotta tartlets. Can’t get enough of citrus this time of year and these little tartlets are super delicious and gluten-free! If you don´t have any small tart pans just make a big one!

 

Lemon and ricotta tartlets

120g butter, softened

260g sugar

1 pod vanilla, the seeds

4 lemons, the zest (and the juice from 1 lemon)

4 egg yolks, at room temperature

240g almond flour

4 egg whites, at room temperature

250g ricotta

1,5 dl flaked almonds, to decorate

Powdered sugar, to decorate

 

  1. Heat oven to 160°.
  2. Grease 8 small tart pans.
  3. Whisk butter, 175g sugar, the vanilla seeds, the grated lemon zest  and lemon juice in a bowl for about 5 minutes until white and fluffy.
  4. Add yolks and whisk for 2 minutes.
  5. Add almond flour and whisk to a smooth lump-free batter.
  6. In a clean bowl whisk the egg whites to foam, add the rest of the sugar and continue whisking until stiff peaks forms.
  7. Fold in the egg whites to the egg- and butter batter.
  8. Fold in the ricotta a little at a time until you have a smooth batter.
  9. Fill the forms with the batter and cover with almond flakes.

10. Bake for about 30 minutes.

11. Let the cakes cool and dust with the powdered sugar.

Happy new year! I moved to a new apartment over the holidays, it’s such a great place. Love it already! But I haven’t had the time to cook as much as I’ve want lately. I am super psyched to start using my new kitchen though.

Anyways, here’s a great weeknight pasta recipe!

Chicken dinner

It’s been snowing like crayzey in Stockholm for the last couple of days. Woke up on wednesday to a silent Stockholm, completely covered in snow, with no cars or people on the streets.  A hot and warming soup feels perfect for a cold winter’s night like this.

And also, I love chicken, noodles and coconut. So this dish is a total jackpot for me.

Pork and fennel ragù

IMG_0857

This is a great little pasta dish. I made it for a job a couple of weeks back. I made a little to much and since it’s only me in my household and I hate wasting food (which sometimes makes my job a bit troublesome, a pizza that’s been in the spotlight for a couple of hours is not tasty). Consequentially, I had this for dinner (and lunch) for a bout 5 days in a row. Let me tell you that it was super tasty the 4 first days..
