Lemon-Lavender Blackberry & Ricottoa Grilled Cheese Sandwich (Vegan!)
Ingredients 2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries 1 tablespoon water 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1 tablespoon agave syrup 1 tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot powder 1 teaspoon dried lavender 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest 1/4 teaspoon salt 8 slices of bread vegan butter macadamia ricotta* recipe at the bottom! Instructions Combine the blackberries, water, lemon juice, agave syrup, cornstarch or arrowroot powder, lavender, lemon zest, and salt in a small pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Once, boiling, reduce to a simmer and let it simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Take 2 slices of bread and on the sides that will be facing outwards, spread a thin layer of vegan butter. On the sides that will be facing the inside of the sandwich: spread a layer of macadamia ricotta on one slice and some of the blackberry sauce on the other. Put the two slices together to form a sandwich. Repeat with the remaining slices of bread and ingredients. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Place 1 to 2 sandwiches in the pan (however many will fit) and cook for a couple minutes on each side or until each side is golden and toasted. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches. Serve immediately. Leftover sauce and cheese can be refrigerated in an airtight container for 4 to 5 days. Enjoy! For the ricotta: 1 cup raw macadamia nuts, soaked for at least 1 hour juice of 1 lemon 4 teaspoons reserved water 3/4 teaspoon citrus herb sea salt (or regular sea salt) 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast 1/2 teaspoon white miso Combine all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until a smooth ball forms. Taste and add more salt if necessary. Place in an airtight container and chill until ready to use. This can be made a day or two in advance, if needed.
