Ingredients (for two people):
- 1 pack vegan puff pastry
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened soy cream or 2 tablespoons of water
- 1 teaspoon red curry paste or ½ teaspoon sweet paprika powder
- spices to taste (sesame / caraway / pizza seasoning)
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon sweet mustard
- lemon zest, freshly grated
- ½ lemon, juice
- black pepper, freshly ground
- 1 pinch chili powder
- some coriander, roughly chopped
- green leaf lettuce
- 300g cherry tomatoes
- ½ cucumber
- Unroll puff pastry and brush a thin layer of soy cream, mixed with paprika powder over it. Optional: mix water with red curry paste and brush the puff pastry with the mixture. Sprinkle with caraway, sesame or pizza spice mixture. Cut dough in 1.5 – 2 cm wide strips. Twist strips carefully and place them side by side on a baking tray, lined with baking paper. Bake at 180 °C in a preheated oven until crispy (15 – 20 minutes).
- Halve avocado and remove core. Spoon out the pulp an mash it with a fork until the mass becomes a homogenous puree.
- Mix olive oil, sweet mustard, grated lemon rind and freshly squeezed lemon juice (of a half lemon). Fold in the avocado puree and stir thoroughly with a whisk. Season with salt, freshly ground black pepper, chili powder and fresh coriander.
- Wash lettuce thoroughly and cut into bite-size pieces. Wash cucumber and cut in rings or thin sticks (with or without peel – your choice). Wash cherry tomatoes and cut into quarters.Give cucumber and tomatoes in a bowl. Pour avocado salad cream over the mixed salad. Mix thoroughly and serve with the hot spicy sticks out of the oven.
