Continuing the work of orange, we made a meal of the future containing some of the trends we believe in. We build the dish around a vegetable, as we believe recipes shouls start in the future from vegetables, fruits,... not anymore from meat or fish.
We chose a carrot. To find out which combinations we can make with carrot, we used our FOODPAIRING WEBSITE. From the Foodpairing tree of carrot, we selected: chicken, orange and basil.
But as chicken and orange have a carbon footprint which is high, let's replace those two ingredients by combinations of other products.
1. Replace the Chicken
As we have a large insight on aromas linked to products, we know for example which molecules are relevant in chicken. Based on that insight, we started to look for other non-meat ingredients to reconstruct the chicken flavor.
This is what we found and has the same flavour as chicken:
80 g pine nuts
80 g sugar
20 g flour
20 g oil of pine nuts
- heating the pine nuts without coloration
- mixing in Thermomix with sugar
- mixing the eggs
- adding the flour
- adding pine nut oil
- set aside for at least 6 hours
- Sieving, pouring in siphon, adding 2 gas cartridges
- Heating in microwave: 55 seconds on 900 Watt
2. Replace the orange
As explained in the previous post, you can replace orange by this combination or another combination based on the sunburst diagram
Orange “ Carbon Foodprint “:
5 g gooseberry
20 g physalis
3 seeds of coriander
1 juniper berry
10 g melon
- mixing and sieving
3. Superfast, without compromising the flavour
Cleaning the onions
Adding in vacuum bag, adding some vegetable stock
1 minute heating on 900 Watt in microwave
This way of preparing onions, give you flavour and speed.
All together, you get this recipe: Carrot – ‘Chicken’ – ‘Orange’ - Basil.
We can also create gels without adding sugar or additives. Using the intelligence of Mother Nature, but we will return to that topic in another post.
Voilà, the meal of the Future...
