CUCUMBER YOGHURT ESPUMA
0.5 kg salad cucumbers
0.5 kg yoghurt (3.5% fat)
5 sheets of gelatine
Wash the cucumbers and cut them into pieces without peeling them. Combine cucumber pieces, yoghurt and spices, purée in a blender and strain through a fine sieve. Soak gelatine in cold water. Place the squeezed out sheets into a saucepan with a little bit of the mixture and, constantly stirring, dissolve the gelatine. Next, add the cucumber blend to the gelatine and pour this mixture into the iSi Gourmet Whip*. Screw in 2 iSi cream chargers, one after the other, and shake vigorously.
Chill in the refrigerator for several hours. Shake the whipper vigorously upside-down before dispensing.
For preparation in the 0.5 l Gourmet Whip take half the ingredients and use 1 charger.
Before pouring in the mixture, place the iSi Gourmet Whip on ice. Excellent addition to salads and prawns.
