1 Carrot, grated
2 Peaches, sliced
2 Golden Apples, diced, peeled if desired
2 Grapefruit, juice & zest
1 Pint Blackberries
1/4 Cup Honey, or Date or Pomegranate Molasses
(Opt) 1/4 Tsp Orange Blossom or Rose Water
2 Tbs Coconut Oil, or Organic Unsalted Butter
1/4 Tsp Sea Salt
2-3 Maztos, large crumble
3 Large Eggs, organic
1/4-1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla
(Opt) Fresh Mint
Step 1: Ribbon zest one grapefruit. Microplane zest the other. Then summon the courage to supreme one of them. You can find many how to supreme videos online. Make the compote. Combine blackberries, honey or molasses, ribbon zest, juice from one grapefruit & rose or orange water. Stir to combine. Chill. Prep out all the fruits.
Step 2: Heat the coconut oil or butter over medium heat w/ the grated carrots & salt. When the carrots wilt, about 2 or 3 mins, add in the apples and sauté until tender. Meanwhile, break the matzo into large chunks, place into a colander in a large bowl & cover w/ hottest tap water for 30 seconds. Drain & combine w/ eggs, vanilla and brown sugar. Using coconut oil results in a flavorful dairy free dish.
Step 3: Stir into the apple mixture & fry over medium heat until golden on the bottom, about 4 mins. Use a spatula to turn over in large chunks. Sprinkle the peaches & fine grapefruit zest on top and cook until the bottom is golden, about 3 or 4 more mins. Transfer to a serving plate, add grapefruit supremes, mint & serve w/ black berry compote. Serve w/ yogurt, sour cream, crème fraiche or ice cream if you’d like.
