Cooked ham cheesecake and carrot sauce
Ingredients for 2 person
180 grams of prosciutto cotto oro from “i cottinforno”
50 grams of cow’s milk ricotta ( better if of sheep)
100gr of breadsticks
50gr of butter
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper as to desire
For the sauce
2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
Sale as to desire
Sunflower seed oil as to desire
Peel and then boil the 4 carrots.
In the meantime crumble, not too finely, the breadsticks and chop the ham.
Melt the butter in a saucepan, over low heat and pour it into breadsticks. Mix until you get the desired consistency, if necessary add some more.
Blend the ham with a mixer by adding the oil, without exaggeration. Sift the ricotta cheese, add a grated pepper, add the ham and mix until you get a homogeneous “dough”. Season to taste with salt.
In two cups arrange a sheet of transparent film and fill for ¾ with the mixture. Then add the breadsticks and place for 1h and 30 minutes in the freezer and then in the refrigerator to rest .
Drain the carrots and dry them well. In a glass of the mixer add vinegar, soy sauce, sugar and begin to blend everything with seed oil. The texture should be dense and creamy. Season to taste with salt.
Serve as you wish.
For a better tasting it is recommended to let it all rest in the refrigerator for a whole night and serve the next day garnishing , for example, with spreadable cheese and basil powder
