Kick-Ass 2 — Hit Girl Veggie Plate and Breakable Sugar Glass

Perfect for your next party: snacks inspired by Kick-Ass 2. We've got a Hit Girl-colored vegetable plate paired with a sheet of breakable sugar glass, just perfect for smashing over the head of a special someone. ;)

Ingredients

  • Purple potatoes (1 kilogram)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1 lemon
  • Almond oil, or a flavourless oil (150 milliliters)
  • 1/8 of a red cabbage
  • 2 beetroots, cooked
  • A handful of fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • A handful of pine nuts, toasted
  • A chunk of Parmesan, finely grated

Steps

  1. Slice the potatoes in half lengthways and chuck them into a saucepan of salted water.
  2. Boil the potatoes for 15-20 minutes, until soft all the way through then drain and set aside to dry.
  3. Zest the lemon.
  4. Whisk one of the egg yolks with the mustard, a squeeze of lemon juice, and the lemon zest.
  5. Continue to whisk as you slowly drizzle in the almond oil until it thickens and the mayonnaise turns light and thick.
  6. Slice the cabbage finely and dice the beetroot into small cubes (.5x.5 centimeters).
  7. Toss the warm potatoes with the mayonnaise, cabbage, beetroot, parsley, pine nuts and Parmesan.
  8. Pile the potatoes in the middle of 4 plates and scatter over some extra nuts, Parmesan and parsley.
  9. Serve your purple salad when ready!

Ingredients

  • Sugar (395g)
  • Liquid glucose (170g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar
  • Water (250 milliliters)
  • A sugar thermometer

Steps

  1. Line 2 large baking trays with foil.
  2. Chuck the sugar, liquid glucose, cream of tartar and water into a large saucepan over a medium high heat.
  3. Heat the mixture, whilst stirring, until it reaches 300°F (150°C). It will take a while and will reduce a lot.
  4. Pour the molten sugar over the lined baking trays very carefully when it reach 300°F (150°C) and tilt the trays to get a very thin layer of 'glass'.
  5. Set aside at room temperature for a few hours to ensure it sets.
  6. Very carefully peel the foil away from the sugar glass.
  7. Destroy your sugar glass in any way you want avoiding eyes!
