Pineap­ple carpac­cio

The Australian Women's Weekly - - Desserts -

SERVES 6 PREP TIME 10 MIN­UTES

2 ta­ble­spoons ca­cao nibs

1 ta­ble­spoon brown su­gar

1 medium (320g) pome­gran­ate

⅓ cup (95g) nat­u­ral yo­gurt

1 medium (1.25kg) ripe pineap­ple, peeled, cored, sliced thinly

2 ta­ble­spoons fresh mint leaves

½ vanilla bean, sliced finely

1 Com­bine the ca­cao nibs and su­gar in a small food pro­ces­sor or blender; process to a fine crumb.

2 Cut pome­gran­ate in half cross­ways. Hold it, cut-side down, in the palm of your hand over a bowl, then hit the out­side firmly with a wooden spoon. The seeds should fall out eas­ily; dis­card any white pith that falls out with them. You will need about ⅓ cup seeds for this recipe.

3 Stir the yo­gurt in a small bowl and add a lit­tle wa­ter if needed to give a thick, driz­zly con­sis­tency.

4 Ar­range pineap­ple on a serv­ing plat­ter. Driz­zle yo­gurt over pineap­ple and sprin­kle with the ca­cao crumb. Scat­ter with the pome­gran­ate seeds, mint and vanilla bean. Not suit­able to freeze.
