- Season to taste.
- Mix all the ingredients together and divide into 4 equal piles.
- Press each pile together to form a ball/ globe.

Whilst the globes are in the freezer, prepare the crumb ingredients. Place the corn flour in 1 bowl, the eggs in another bowl and the bread crumbs in another bowl.
- Once the cheese globes are firm to the touch, roll them in the corn flour to coat.
- Dust off any excess corn flour and then place the globes into the beaten eggs.

- Store the crumbed globes in the fridge until needed.
When you are ready to cook the globes, heat a pot of sunflower oil to 180ᵒC.

- Once the globes are golden brown, remove them from the oil and drain them on paper towel.
- For the avocado puree: Place the avocado, lemon juice and cream cheese into a food processor and blend until smooth.
- Season to taste.
To make the peppadew coulis:
- Place the peppers and the marinating liquid into a food processor and blend until smooth.

Thinly slice the sour dough and lay on a baking tray. Sprinkle with olive oil and roast at 180ᵒC until the light brown and dry.
Place the globes onto the plate with a some of the avocado puree, the toasted bread and a drizzle of the peppadew coulis.
