Pistachio Minute Biscuit

This simple recipe created by Ferran Adria is a great idea of how to make a dessert in just a few minutes. Mix 80g of pealed pistachios, 20g of flour, 3 eggs and 80g of sugar in a bowl, combine the mixture and put it in a siphon loaded with two CO2 cartridges. Leave it to rest in the fridge. Put some of the mixture in long, thin glasses (fill them up to about the middle), then put them in the microwave for 40 seconds at maximum power. Take them out and remove the biscuit from the glasses. The result is an extremely light biscuit that you can use to make small desserts combined with other ingredients like a pistachio cream, or a pistachio mousse; it also goes well with chocolate. I always say: try a recipe and then create something new with it. I, for example, was thinking of making a biscuit like this with a lobster bisque and little pieces of shrimp as an appetizer. The important thing is just to have a go.
