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

Ingredients


3/4 cup whole/halves Macadamia nuts, unsalted (for the "ricotta")
1 tsp Black pepper (to taste)
1/4 tsp 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)

Instructions


  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).
     
  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.
     
  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
Instructions:

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.
