Lavender Panna Cotta Recipe

Serves

4

Preparation

10 minutes

Cooking

15 minutes, plus cooling and overnight chilling

Ingredients

  • 1 vanilla pod/bean
  • 2 tsp culinary lavender flowers
  • 500ml/17fl oz/2 cups coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 2 tsp agar-agar flakes

Method

1. Split the vanilla pod/bean in half lengthways and scrape out the seeds. Reserve the pod/bean for another use. Using the back of a spoon, crush the lavender flowers.

2. Put the coconut milk in a small saucepan over a low heat and add the vanilla seeds, lavender, sugar and cinnamon. Bring gently to the boil, then simmer. Add the agar-agar and 2 tablespoons water, and continue to simmer until the agar-agar has dissolved completely and no trace of the flakes can be seen when you lift up some of the mixture in a spoon.

3. Divide the mixture into four individual ramekins or small glasses. Leave to cool, then put into the refrigerator to set overnight. Serve sprinkled with cinnamon.
