This quick dessert is a great one to use up any leftover ricotta and filo after making spinach and cheese filo pies. Popping the filo in the sandwich press is a genius trick to quick cooking!
Ingredients250g (1 cup) fresh ricotta cheese
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon each of grated lemon and orange rind
1 punnet strawberries, thinly sliced
1 sheet filo pastry
½ teaspoon cinnamon
50g dark chocolate, finely grated
Add any nuts or fruit you like to this recipe! Stack the filo into three or four layers for an elegant plated dessert.
- Combine ricotta, honey and rinds in a bowl until smooth.
- Lay filo pastry on the bench and sprinkle one half with cinnamon. Fold in half, then cut into 8 even rectangles. Place filo squares in a preheated sandwich press and cook for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and allow to cool.
- Top four of the rectangles evenly with ricotta mixture and a layer of strawberries. Finish with a piece of filo and sprinkle with grated chocolate and remaining strawberry slices.
