Do you have to have an Apple product to use the Evernote for recipes? I have the Evernote just not for the Recipes.

Soups / Re: Moroccan carrot and lentil soup

I am making this as I type. It is cooking away nicely. I will need to make up a proper Moroccan spice next time.

Drinks / Carrot, green apple and celery juice
« on: July 19, 2012, 08:25:59 am »
I am trying to make the above juice and have been given a recipe by a friend.

She said to use 7 carrots, 2 green apples and a stick of celery. She doesn't have a Thermomix. I have discovered that the recipe is not going to work. I need it to boost my sons immunity and I basically need a straight juice with all the water and ice cubes. I tried making it before with less carrots as they won't fit in the machine. I added the ice but I'm not sure how much to use. I only added 200g water to as not to dilute the juice too much. I finished it off with it on 10 at the end for I think it was 30 secs and then strained it. I found it to still be very watered down. Is this the case or have I done something wrong.  Maybe the Thermomix is not what I should be using if I want the results of a normal juicer. I love my machine for everything else. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks. I might try the millet porridge. I want to cook it for 3 or 4 people, should I make it 3 or 4 times or just triple the recipe?

My nearly 4 yo son was diagnosed at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, the new one.

He is under a pediatrician and it was highly suggested that he be tested. I know that it is not very nice, but it may be best to get tested.

We have joined the Coeliac Australia organisation and I have found that there is a lot of information available. If you join you will get a card that can be used at any Coles supermarket as far as I am aware and it depends on which state what other outlets will give you discounts.

To join the organisation you will need to contact them for an application form and get it signed by a doctor/professional. We also got a goodie box with $25 worth of products for free. I hope this helps someone.

Oh and I used all brown rice instead of half and half because I couldn't find glutinous rice any where!

Hi Nighteyes. I just use basmati rice.

I attended a sourdough gluten free workshoop last week and most of the doughs made with buckewheat, rice flour  and sorghum flour were very batter like. I hadn't eaten buckwheat flour before and it is certainly a different taste.

Hi Cookie1, could you give us some more information on the sourdough gluten free recipes? I would love to know how to make sourdough. Thanks

I have used potato starch, and it seems to work - not sure if it's got preservatives though...

I use a variation of this recipe to make my gf pizza dough - yummy and crispy!  :)

I went to our local health food store and was looking at the potato flour/starch and it has preservative 222 in it which we looked up in the store and it is a  :( :(. I just ended up buying the tapioca flour instead of the arrowroot because there was more in it. I would love to get it in bulk.

I am fairly new to the forum too.

This is the only bread we use now. My nearly 4 yo son is gluten free. Is there a way to do this recipe without the egg? I know Jo from Quirky Cooking uses it without the eggs sometimes. Would the Chia eggs work? I haven't tried that yet.

I am finding with gluten free cooking that you replace the gluten in recipes and introduce eggs. We don't generally use eggs.

We have just started using Chia, too. I love it and use it with the sunflower and sesame seeds in the seed mixture. I also sprinkle a mixture of the 3 seeds on top of the bread. It is yummo  :) :)

It is nice cold or toasted but it generally gets eaten fresh from the oven with Jo's (Quirky Cooking) Strawberry Jam, a winner in our home. The jam is also posted on the forum somewhere  :)

Breakfast / How to cook Millet

We are Gluten Free and I would like to know how to cook Millet in the Thermomix.

I would like to make it for breakfast.

Thanks in advance  :)

Babies and Kids / Re: Baby Rice Cereal
« on: April 21, 2012, 09:52:46 pm »
We tried the baby rice cereal too and I wasn't sure what to do with it either. I actually tried to make the Thermo Fruit Wraps or whatever they are called. I do have a dehydrator but the Thermomix has stolen its' usual spot and I wasn't set up for drying the fruit anyway. I cooked up some apples and 1 of each of the kiwi fruits green/gold. I didn't peel the apples and I
 added the lemon juice, cooked to the recipe and used it as puree. My 6mth old ate it, but I'm not sure about the skins and the lemon juice or even the kiwi's. My other 2 boys ate it as well but might dry it next time to see what it is like.

I am newish to the forum, so I'm not sure how to reply under people's replies.

you can only vote once but as the others have said just tick as many as you like. Once you have submitted the form that is it. You can't go back and change it.

yay! thanks for that, they have one at the supermarket called freenut butter which has nasties in it, this will be handy for school and kinder and daycare where no nuts are allowed!

We currently buy the freenut butter. What are the nasties? I was wanting to start making my own anyway. Im not sure how to reply to posts.

Can you just make it in the Thermomix and freeze the coconut milk and pineapple? I dont have an icecream machine.
