Recipe: Polish farmer's radish and soft cheese canapés

16th September 2013

This recipe is a twist on Twarozek, a typical Polish dish made of curd cheese mixed with chives, radish, cream and spices. As well as being a traditional springtime treat, Twarozek is also a popular breakfast dish in Poland. However, in this recipe – a simple combination of ricotta, sour cream, chives and radish spread on rye bread - it’s transformed into a tasty canapé.

Food and drink matching expert Fiona Beckett says: “Beer - along with vodka - is the Polish national drink so a Polish lager is a natural choice for these tangy canapés. Plus beer is always great with sandwiches, especially those made from rye bread. If you’re having them earlier in the day as a sandwich, try an apple juice or a strong black Americano coffee.”

Serves: 16

Preparation time: 5 mins

You’ll need:

4 tbsp Ricotta

4 tbsp Sour cream

Bunch chives finely chopped

20 radish, chopped small or coarsely grated

Pepper and sea salt

To Serve: 

Toasted rye bread


What to do:

1. Set aside four radishes and 10 chive stalks. Put the remaining ingredients in a bowl and stir well to combine. Season with black pepper and sea salt, taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.

2. Toast the rye bread then cut into small triangles. Pile a couple of teaspoons full of the radish mixture on each triangle. Chop the remaining radishes and chives and add a little to the top of each canapé then sprinkle with a little paprika and serve.

3. Note - Serve on whole slices of rye for a great brunch.
