Method

  • Put the water and the bouillon powder or the homemade vegetable bouillon in a small saucepan, and bring to the boil.
  • Add the agar agar flakes, lower the heat and simmer until the agar agar has dissolved.
  • Lay your individual aspics moulds on a tray or a chopping board. Put a little agar agar bouillon in the bottom of each one and place in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to set. Then add the eggs and a few peas. Top with agar agar bouillon right to the top and return to the fridge to set for 15 minutes.
  • During this time, prepare the green pea veloute by simply blending the remaining peas with enough water to reach a veloute consistency. Blend until perfectly smooth, then season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  • Finally, take your egg and green pea aspics out of the fridge and serve them in a nage of green pea veloute.
