Prosciutto wrapped Stuffed Prunes
Health Highlights
A delicious and healthy snack with a bit of sweetness.


3/4 cup whole/halves Macadamia nuts, unsalted (for the "ricotta")
1 tsp Black pepper (to taste)
1 dash Kosher salt (to taste; for the "ricotta")
1 tsp Lemon juice (for the "ricotta")
2 1/2 tbsp Water, filtered (for the "ricotta")
16 pitted prune(s) Prunes
57 gm Prosciutto
2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar (approximately, to drizzle)


Step 1: Position an oven rack about 4 to 6 inches from the heating element, and preheat the broiler. Use your finger to carefully open up the cavity of each pitted prune. Then, with a pastry bag (or a sealable plastic food storage bag), pipe the “cheese” into the prunes (see "Notes" below).

Step 2: Wrap each prune in a thin layer of prosciutto, and arrange them in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Broil for 2 to 4 minutes or until the prunes puff up and the prosciutto crisps and turns golden brown around the edges.

Step 3: Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and season with pepper to taste before serving.

Advanced Preparation

1 day prior, Macadamia nuts, unsalted 3/4 cup whole/halves

In a food processor or a high-powered blender, purée the macadamia nuts, black pepper, salt, lemon juice and water until smooth. If necessary, scrape down the sides with a spatula and/or add a bit more water. The resulting texture should resemble — you guessed it! — ricotta cheese.



Don’t have a pastry bag? Simply snip a ½-inch hole in the corner of a quart-size plastic food storage or freezer bag, and you’re good to go!
