IngredientsRecipe for 4
- Salt and pepper
- Olive oil
Preparation time: 45 min
Preheat your Oven at 400 °F
- Perfect Egg
Put your themcirculator into a large container filled with water and set the temperature to 64°C. Lower the the eggs gently into the water and leave them for 1 hour.
Take them out and run them under cold water to stop the cooking process. Peel them delicately just before serving.
- Caramelized onions
Peel and finely dice the onions. In a hot frying pan with olive oil, sweat the onions. Season with salt and add the sugar, once they are sweated and translucent lowerd the heat.
Cook slowly on a low heat, mixing periodically, until you get a nice light golden colour.
Taste and season with salt and pepper if necessary. Keep warm.
- Tomato salad
On the tip of each tomato make a little "X" using the tip of a knife. Lower the tomatoes into a stock pot of boiling water for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Remove the tomatoes and drop them into a bowl of ice water.
This process will make it easier to remove the peel of the tomato, using a paring knife or even just your fingers.
Cut the tomatoes into quarters, remove the pulp and the stem, we only want the nice flesh. Cut the tomatoes into lengthwise into matchsticks, then turn them and cut them in to small cupes (brunoise).
Mince the basil, then add the brunoised tomatoes, basil, and truffle oil into a bowl. Season with salt and papper.
- Garlic croutons
Cut the bread into small cubes and mince the garlic. In a bowl toss the croutons, garlic, and a nice drizzle of oilve oil together. Season with salt and pepper.
Spread the croutons out on a baking sheet and place it in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until nicely toasted.
- Plating and finishing touches
In your plate or bowl, place a nice nest of the caramelized onions. On top of this add your tomato salad, still making a little hole in the middle. Place your perfect egg in the center, then sprinkle some croutons all over and finish with some spouts for garnish.
Be careful when peeling the egg, it will be very soft and quite capable of breaking.
