Chit Chat / Re: Falafel

I have not tried this one, either, Amanda, but if you were in the mood, it might work if you baked the falafel instead of deep frying it.

I'm sure Chookie will be on here soon with some answers for you.

Thanks - I've had a quick chat with Chookie.  ;D

Iíve made some pizza scrolls and some seriously seedy crackers this morning. I went looking for information about the crackers as I wasnít entirely happy with them, and found the original recipe in the forums here, with an extra step. Signed in to reply and here I am once again!

Iíve been working as a teacher for the last year and a half in a school near home and I love it. Iím just waiting to hear if I have an interview for an ongoing role there, which I would really love to get.

Ooh - seedy crackers? :)
Which recipe is it here?

Hi Guys - I've just had an epic fail with a falafel recipe from the Tmix+ magazine.
They just totally dissolved in the oil - subsequently the chooks have had a very satisfying lunch.
I found this old recipe of Chookies from many years ago and wonder if anyone has made it, or has any comments or suggestions?
This is the recipe -
1 onion
1 large clove of garlic
1 400g tin chickpeas
falafel mix ( use "Mount Zero" organic mix)
handful of corriander (green) or parsley and a few mint leaves.

Drop onion and garlic onto moving blades, speed 7, until chopped
scrape down and add 1 tablespoon of oil
cook 100, speed 1, 4 mins.
Tip in chickpeas, water and peas
roughly chop corriander or mint and parsley and add to bowl
speed 7, 6 secs.
Add 1  1/2 cups of mix,  ::, until incorporated
sit for 15 mins

Roll into small balls (I use a small ice cream scoop),  flatten slightly and shallow fry until brown.
Serve with a yogurt dip.

Chit Chat / Tahini
« on: October 08, 2020, 08:41:03 am »
Has anyone here made their own tahini - and if so, was it worth it?
I bought a massive bag of sesame seeds some time ago (no idea what I was thinking) and they have been out of date for some time. They're still okay, but I can't use them fast enough so need to bulk process them and tahini seems the most useful option.
I'm thinking I'll just bung them in and whizz the bejesus out of them - unless someone has any finessing to suggest?  ;D

Do that MJ. I have only recently discovered the Cookiedoo facebook site.

Hi Everybody - it's been such a long time since I showed my face here and I hope to get back into the habit again.
I have my eye on the TM 6, although my husband is unaware of this - at this stage.  ;D I still have my old TM31, so Julie's posts have been very useful to get an idea of what the machine can do.
I had no idea there was a Cookidoo FB page either!
Cheers, Amanda

Thanks everyone - I've gone for the soft option of a leek and mushroom tart. She's happy with that and so am I - it's quick and simple.

Hi Guys - it's been such a long time since I've been here! How is everyone - have I missed any good gossip?  ;)
So - I'm looking for inspiration. My youngest has gone vegetarian (sigh). I'm up to my eyeballs trying to schedule/assemble the Christmas dinner at ours, plus a Christmas eve dinner with dear friends, but I'd like to be able to offer my daughter at least one nice vegetarian dish on the big day. Preferably one I can prepare the day before, and preferable using the TMX to cut down on the work load.
Any brilliant ideas?

I was totally addicted to Serial - feel a bit lost now that it's over.
Currently reading a very easy read called Korma, Kheer & Kismet - about the street food of Old Delhi.
Quick & enjoyable.

Just finished "If Walls Could Talk" by Lucy Worsley. She is a British historian and this book is about the British history of the different rooms in our homes, from Medieval times onward. She is a terrifically engaging historical writer who writes absorbingly, using quotes, anecdotes and jokes - I love her writing to bits. Very easy to read.

Ooh, haven't looked at the paper yet, Gert. this will end up costing me and adding to my TBR list!

Had a gorgeous lunch and a BIG catch up with Karen H. today.
Great to see you again Karen - we'll catch up again when the fruit is ripe for a swap.

Karen - we never even got around to talking about books at lunch today!!
I was given Garner's new book for my birthday and was going to start it yesterday, but had a tough day and wasn't up the gruelling subject matter, so I started reading a murder mystery instead.
This House of Grief will be my next read.

Thanks Judy.
I was thinking it might use malt powder, but also think I have a jar of malt in the pantry somewhere.
Off to hunt it down now ...
