Ingredients

  • 3

    cups beet juice

  • 1/2

    vanilla bean

  • 2

    very ripe plantains peeled, and split in half lengthwise

  • 2

    tablespoons raw cane sugar - (to 3 tbspns)

  • 4

    scoops kaffir lime, lemon or lime sorbet

Directions

Bring beet juice to a simmer with the 1/2 vanilla bean in a small saucepot over medium heat. Reduce juice, skimming constantly, to a syrup. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean into the syrup and discard the pod. Place each plantain slice, cut-side up, on a cookie sheet and roast in a preheated 400 degree oven for 3 to 4 minutes, or until heated through. Remove from the oven and turn the broiler on with the rack 4-inches from the broiling element. Evenly sprinkle the cane sugar over each 1/2 plantain, then place under the broiler and broil until the sugar caramelizes. Transfer each plantain to the center of each of 4 warmed plates. Nestle a scoop of sorbet against each plantain and drizzle with the vanilla beet sauce over both. This recipe yields 4 servings.
