reminder – reduce water content from 420g to 150g. Too watery otherwise particularly if noodles are precooked .

This recipe (see link above ) for Singapore noodles from Quirky Cooking is super, super tasty . Love this dish , curry flavour with coriander and lime yum ! Makes a full thermoserver and is one of those dishes that always tastes better the next day so great to have in fridge for snacks . We topped with fresh coriander , chilli sauce and lime . Fantastic food for winter chills . Miss 16 will take to school for lunch .

We use thermomix for first half of the recipe from sautéing the onion garlic carrot and chicken . Then used the pan to stir fry all together with noodles and chinese cabbage because we upped the cabbage content slightly  to over what would fit in the tmx. Reduced water content because we used rice noodles instead of vermicelli bean thread noodles.  And precooked the rice noodles for a few minutes in boiling water . Easily one of my favourite all in one meals .

Zucchini/ corguette Soup

Super yummy zucchini soup!

The trouble with having too many new cookbooks is that you forget to go back to your old books and try new recipes . Can’t believe we’ve never made this one . Corguettes are one of our favourite vegetables. This is the zucchini soup from the Basic cookbook , only need four to five zucchini , some vegetable or chicken stock, water  and a tiny bit of cream cheese . Basically a throw all together and cook 15 minutes before blitzing . Everyone loves this soup. Makes for a welcome  change from creamy tomato , pumpkin or mushroom soups recipes which are constantly produced .

Tomato and Lentil Dahl

The recipe for the tomato and red lentil dahl can be found in the link above but we just used the recipe on the chip from EDC.

We had a lentil dahl in Waiheke last week and because girls liked it , I was inspired to try the tomato and lentil Dahl recipe  It only takes 20 minutes cooking time and tastes healthy and full of flavour from the combination of cumin, mustard seeds, turmeric and chilli. . Miss 10 not madly in love because she doesn’t like coriander but we all like this vegetarian meal for a change . The red lentils are dried red split lentils. Added a bit more boiling water at end to make the dahl a little less dense. Lovely on rice but would be perfect on naan or pita bread.

Technically not fried rice, but it’s healthy steamed rice with vegetables chicken and bacon from Quirky cooking online recipes . Really efficient recipe , love how the rice cooks in the basket while the vegetables and chicken cook in the varoma dish and tray above.  Makes a huge amount because we loaded the varoma quite full with vegetables , just need to make sure there is holes available for steam to get to the varoma tray as well .

French Onion dip

Fantastic another dip to add to the favourites, onion dip made from real onions, usually make this dip using the maggi onion soup mix and reduced cream so was happy to find this one making dip from sautéing real onions and then mixing with cream cheese to complete . Yummy dip for kids to eat with vegetable sticks. I halved the recipe as we only had a small tub of cream cheese and used onion powder instead of vegetable stock.

 

Chocolate and plum Brioche

Chocolate and plum brioche

School holiday baking, this is the guided spiced cherry brioche recipe from the Festive Flavour cookbook. Instead of cherries and spices , we filled the brioche wreath with chocolate chunks,  plums and cranberries. Easier than expected because there is only one prove required a the beginning. Filled two rolls and then plaited and joined to make the wreath .

The recipe is almost same as this one above in the recipe community , only one tsp of salt not two and 40g of sugar instead of 30g. Slightly easier method , make two longish rolls and twist together then join to make one wreath. Bake 35 mins at 180c.

Delicious and impressive coming out of the oven today.
