The Daring Cooks’ April 2011 Challenge: EDIBLE CONTAINERS (savory)

Renata of Testado, Provado & Aprovado! was our Daring Cooks’ April 2011 hostess. Renata challenged us to think “outside the plate” and create our own edible containers! Prizes are being awarded to the most creative edible container and filling, so vote on your favorite from April 17th to May 16th at http://thedaringkitchen.com!

My choice was to make something really easy. Here in Serbia it`s quite usual to use phyllo pastry to make different kinds of pies. Since the healthier food is becoming more and more popular, it`s not a surprise to find whole wheat phyllo pastry. I decided to make savory container out of buckwheat phyllo.

Here`s how I made it:

Brioche mold came out to be an excellent choice for preparing the container. First, I cut three thin buckwheat layers into a circular shape, big enough to completely cover the mold and then I sprinkled the top one with a tiny bit of olive oil. Container-to-be was baked in pre-heated oven at 200C for 5 minutes.

Simple as that!!!

Baked container had to be filled with something tasty and light, so I made a salad. In order to prepare it, you`ll need no more than 10 minutes. Buy:

  • cabbage, and cut it in thin stripes
  • sesame seeds-place them in the frying pan (you don`t have to grease it) on medium fire until they become light brown.
  • carrot-grated
  • sea salt to taste or tamari sauce
  • few drops of water
  • toasted sesame oil
Mix well all the ingredients, place them in the freshly baked food container and serve with the main dish of your choice.
