Coconut milk, white miso panna cotta with blueberries and marmalade candied walnuts

For the panna cotta:
1, 14 ounce can of coconut milk (unsweetened)
1T (heaping) of white miso
1/4 cup of sugar
1T of agar flakes

I added 1t of lemon juice to mine, but be careful with this. Lemon and lime are hard on the agar’s chemistry.

Bring the coconut milk to a light boil on medium heat
Add the sugar and the miso.
Stir until dissolved (I used an immersion blender).
Add the agar, whisking as you do.
Turn down the pain to medium low.
Let it simmer very lightly for about 15 minutes, stirring frequently until the agar is well dissolved.
Let stand 10 minutes to cool.
Sweeten to taste (it shouldn’t be overly sweet).
Pour into ramekins and cover.
Chill for about 2-4 hours to setup (depending on how cold you keep your refrigerator).

For a simple, non-flambe version of the blueberries:
1 cup of blueberries
1 pinch of sea salt
2-3T of agave nectar (to taste)
1T of water
2t of arrowroot powder

Heat the berries on medium with the salt and 2T of agave nectar in a pan with a lid.
Simmer for 5-10 minutes once they start to release their juices and you have about 1/4 cup of liquid.
Add 1T of water to the pan if the blueberries if you need additional moisture.
Whisk the arrowroot with the water.
Add the arrowroot to the pan to thicken, stirring constantly.
Let the mix stand for 15 to cool.
Add additional agave nectar if you don’t find it sweet enough.
You can then chill it if you prefer you berries cold.

For the walnuts
1/4 cup of walnuts (large pieces preferred)
1T of marmalade (I use seville)
1t of plant-only margarine
1 pinch of sea salt

Preheat the oven to 375F
Mix the marmalade, margarine and sea salt.
Mix in the walnuts, coating thoroughly.
Add the walnuts evenly to a lightly greased pan.
Oven roast for about 10 minutes (give or take) until the walnuts are shiny and lightly browned.
Spoon out and let air dry for about 10 minutes.

You could also add ginger or fresh zest to this, but I didn’t have any handy.
