Intro

Coconut Sorbet, Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce // Not Without Salt

“In a generation of busyness and schedules and desperate convenience, I hope to encourage people to eat at home with people they care about, to compose produce-focused meals, and to value their health, through the food choices they make. My contribution to that is accessible recipes that take more time to prepare than eating out or microwaving, but reward you with the joy there is in feeding people well.”

Sara Forte, Bowl + Spoon

Sara put into words so beautifully what I felt the moment I found her blog. Her recipes send me bounding into the kitchen eager to make dinner, her words, comfortable and easy, have me pining for a seat at her table, and Hugh’s photos show the simple beauty in food and the cooking process in a very real way and yet every photo feels like a piece of art. They also happen to be two of the best people we know.

While I may tend to use a bit more butter than Sara (and not surprisingly the first thing I make from her book is dessert) her food is nutritious in a way that is doable. The ingredients don’t force you to wander the streets in search for the nearest health food store and they don’t require a few days to soak. Sara’s food, like her, is inspiring, inviting and comfortable. And most importantly, it’s just damn good.

Coconut Sorbet, Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce // Not Without Salt Coconut Sorbet, Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce // Not Without Salt

I know that Sara and I do share a similar, shall we say, appreciation for ice cream. So of course that’s the first recipe I jumped to . The simplicity of the sorbet had me doubting its merit until I scooped out a slumped spoonful from the machine. It was deeply coconut flavored and perfectly sweet, as in, not too much so.

The simple tart and sweet sauce pooled in the bottom of the bowl made it somewhat reminiscent of an affogato. For that reason I kept the sauce a bit warm to mimic that same magic that happens when cold ice cream meets hot espresso.

My first trip to the grocery store I failed to gather pistachios. I lamented to Sara about my mistake. “Oh no! It’s ruined.” She joked in her text. But I did go back for pistachios and I’m not sorry because they add the perfect bit of crunch.

Sara and Hugh, you guys have done it again. It’s a stunning work of art that will find its way into my kitchen again and again.

In my excitement for the book’s release I eagerly pre-ordered two copies which I think works out perfectly because now I can share the book with two of you! If you would like a chance to win a copy please leave a comment below. I’ll pick two winners on Monday (4/6). I hate to do this to my non-US readers but for this one I’m just going to keep it to the states. Thanks.

Coconut Sorbet, Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce // Not Without Salt
 

Coconut Sorbet with Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce

This recipe is written as it appears in the book. Sara suggests stirring ins 1/2 tablespoon of fresh ginger into the sauce after it’s cooked. I left in out in mine but you can add it if you’d like.

The texture of the sorbet is best the day it is made.

Serves 6

 

3 cups coconut milk (2 13-ounce cans)

2/3 cup natural cane sugar

1 tablespoon brown rice syrup

sea salt

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch

SAUCE

4 cups chopped ripe strawberries

3/4 cup diced rhubarb

1/4 cup natural cane sugar

1/2 cup pistachios, finely chopped

 

In a medium pot, warm 2 cups of the coconut milk, the sugar, brown rice syrup, and a pinch of salt. Simmer, stirring occasionally over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. In a large bowl, add the remaining cup of coconut milk and stir in the vanilla and cornstarch to dissolve. Slowly stir the warm coconut milk into the coconut-cornstarch mixture. Set the bowl in the fridge to cool completely. Once cooled, churn the mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Leave the mixture to set fully in the freezer.

For the sauce, in a heavy saucepan over medium low heat, combine the strawberries, rhubarb, a pinch of salt, and the sugar. Leave everything to very gently simmer for about 20 minutes. Give it a stir and barely simmer again, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes longer. you will have chunks of fruit between a loose liquid; this will set more as it cools to become a thicker sauce. Allow the mixture to cool, uncovered, to room temperature. The sauce can be kept, covered, in the fridge for 1 week.

Serve the sundaes with a puddle of the sauce, a few scoops of sorbet, another drizzle of sauce, and pistachios on top.

      Some grocery stores carry it. I actually didn’t have it on hand so I used just a bit of corn syrup but I imagine you can use honey as well. It’ll just add a bit of honey flavor, which I don’t think is a bad thing.

Sometimes you see a photo of a dish and you think you can never make it, it’s too much work and it’s so complicated, and you don’t have time for it. Sarah makes cooking sound so simple and enjoyable, and I see more people being able to relate to her that way. And oh my goodness, the photos.. such beautiful work!

    I grew up in southern Missouri, and some of my absolute best memories are of making ice cream with my mom and brothers, then eating it on the back porch while it melted in the hot, humid summer air. The cicadas were always singing and ice cream ended up all over the place as it melted. Once my mom died and I started to recreate recipes in her honor, I realized her magic ice cream recipe had gone with her. I’m really excited to try this recipe when my brothers come visit me this summer!

    This looks delicious! I don’t adore rhubarb, but I think I shall try this and see what I think….it looks fantastic.

    I love Sara’s site and cook often from her first book. I would love a copy of her second one!

    Yah! So excited about this post! Your pictures, as always, look beautiful. I’m also so, so excited to buy this book, and this recipe has me even more psyched about it! Thanks for sharing this recipe 🙂

    Ashley, I am Brooke Bass’ mom (took your photo seminar with you and Gabe – loved it!!). I want you to know that she gave me your cookbook for my birthday, and it is FABULOUS!! One of my favorites is your creamy shallot vinaigrette – served it at a party, and everyone raved over the salad. Thank you for treating us all to your wonderful creativity, in so many ways. I look forward to more!

      Cynthia, Thank you so much for your comment! Of course I remember you. I loved that you two came and took the workshop together. I am so glad you are enjoying the cookbook. I have been loving watching Brooke rise to the top with her blog. You must be so proud. What a talent.

    I love this post so much. You both are wonderful human beings and food goddesses. Also drooling over these pictures and wishing that I was neighbors with you both. (ladies dancing with confetti) (I have a hard time not speaking without emojis now.)

    I love the photos on your posts – I want to lick the screen they are so inviting. I would love to win a book – I cannot wait to make the sorbet and sauce. It looks amazing.

    I just made your chocolate chip cookies this week and they were hands down the best I’ve ever made. I’ve been on a perpetual quest (like many others) for the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Thanks for a winner! I loved Sara & Hugh’s first book – can’t wait to see this one!
