Raspberry coulis

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh or thawed frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp + 2 tsp water, divided
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp cornstarch

Directions

1 In a blender, purée the raspberries, sugar and 1 tablespoon water.

2 Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a small saucepan, pressing the solids with the back of a spoon and scraping the bottom of the sieve to extract the pulp.

3 Discard the solids. Stir the lemon juice into the raspberry mixture; stir over medium heat until hot, about 2 minutes. Whisk the cornstarch with the remaining 2 teaspoons water until smooth; stir into the raspberry mixture.

4 Bring to a boil; cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.

5 Remove from the heat; serve with waffles.

Prep & cook time: 15 minutes
