Zucchini/Carrot Timbales
« on: October 05, 2017, 10:11:01 am »
Iíve been making this for years using a grater but today the Thermomix helped me do it easier.  A great recipe to use when you have a glut of zucchini.

Zucchini/Carrot Timbales - Serves 4

650-700g zucchini (approx 3 large ones) - cut into 8cm pieces
400g carrots, peeled & cut into 3cm chunks
2 tsp Teninaís garlic paste
1 tbspn olive oil
1 tbspn butter
S & P to taste

Equipment needed
30cm non-stick frying pan
4 x 125g dariole moulds - spray with olive oil.

Place zucchini pieces into TM bowl and using the TM spatula as an aid, chop 3 sec/speed 5. Remove to a bowl. If there are any large chunks in the mix chop them by hand, do not chop any further using the TMX.

Add the carrot pieces and chop 3 sec/speed 5. No need to use the TM spatula here. Add them to the zucchini and mix together.

Place the oil and butter into the frying pan and when hot, add the veggies along with S & P and garlic paste. Cook on high heat for 15 minutes, stirring quite often.

Fill the dariole moulds with the mixture, packing it down well so that it will keep its shape when unmoulded.

Upend the timbale onto your plate as a side dish and serve immediately or turn out onto a tray, refrigerate and reheat when required either in the microwave or in the oven if you are using it. Mine went straight into the freezer on the tray.  When frozen I will transfer them to a ziplock bag.

These look yummy, Judy.  We always seem to end up with dozens of zucchini during the season and never know quite how to use them all up so this recipe is very welcome.
