- 250 ml Florida Grapefruit Juice
- 1/2 teaspoon Florida Orange zest
- 250 g all-purpose flour
- 60 ml milk
- 60 ml beetroot juice
- 2 eggs
- 35 g shallots, minced
- 70 g pine nuts
- 75 g goat cheese, crumbled
- 30 g baby rocket
- 60 ml olive oil
- White pepper
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, milk, beetroot juice, eggs and orange zest; whisk until the batter is smooth. Drop the batter into a spaetzle dropper over a pot of boiling water.Move the dropper back and forth until all the batter has dropped into the water.When it floats, strain the spaetzle and place into an ice bath.
In a small pot, reduce the grapefruit juice and shallots to 60 ml; reserve. Heat olive oil in a large rondeau over medium-high heat.When the oil smokes, add the strained spaetzle.Sauté until golden brown, add the pine nuts and toast in the rondeau.
Turn off the heat, fold in the goat cheese and baby rocket, spread the mixture evenly onto 4 plates and drizzle the grapefruit-shallot reduction over the top.Season to taste with salt and white pepper.
