Bienetta Pistachio Taco Shells

1.) Preheat oven to 350°F.

2.) Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Spoon 16.6 grams of bienetta-pistachio mixture onto a silpat on a pan.

3.) Using the back of a spoon, spread mixture into 4" diameter round disks.

4.) Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 30 seconds. While bienetta mixture is still soft and pliable, quickly transfer each one to a taco shell rack using a wide metal offset spatula.

5.) Allow to cool completely. If not serving immediately, store shells in an airtight container until ready to fill and serve. **See recipe notes

1.) Whip 300 grams of whipping cream to a medium peak and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix 75g of cold water, 20g of Pistachio Flavor Paste, and 2g of organic matcha powder with a hand whisk until well blended. 

2.) Once combined, add 65g of Neutral Fond Royal and whisk all together.

3.) Whisk 100g of medium peak whipped cream into the pistachio-matcha-Fond Royal mixture. Once combined, add the remaining 200g of whipped cream and fold together until fully combined.

4.) Place Pistchio-Matcha Mousse inside a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe the prepared mousse into the cooled taco shells. 

5.) Garnish with chopped pistachios and a dusting of matcha powder. If desired, serve with fresh raspberries and Red Crystal Sugar for a stunning pop of color!

Recipe Notes:


*For this particular recipe Chef Joan used Aiya Organic Culinary Grade Matcha, but any organic matcha powder will work.

**You can make the taco shells ahead of time and store in an airtight container until ready to fill and serve. Chef Joan recommends waiting to pipe the shells with the mousse until just before serving.
