Starters and Snacks / Broccoli pesto
« on: June 21, 2011, 11:59:13 am »
Name of Recipe:
Broccoli pesto

Olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 medium head broccoli
1 tsp chicken stock concentrate (I use Quirky Cooking's recipe)
20 grams washed basil leaves (wet weight)
45 grams parmesan cheese
70 grams almonds

Mill parmesan cheese and almonds 15 seconds speed 8 and set aside.
No need to wash  *:, chop garlic 3 seconds speed 7.
Scrape sides, add 15 grams olive oil and cook varoma temperature, 2 minutes, speed 1.
Add broccoli broken/roughly chopped into florets and chop 5 seconds speed 5.
Add 170 grams water and chicken stock paste and cook on varoma temperature, 7 minutes, speed 1 (until tender).  Set aside to cool.
Once cool, place cooked broccoli & cooking liquid, basil, parmesan & almond mixture into  *: and puree 5 seconds speed 8.
Scrape down sides of  *: and add 20 grams olive oil, process until smooth (30 seconds speed 4, scrape, another 30 seconds speed 4)

Add to hot pasta with enough reserved cooking liquid to form a sauce.

Recipe Book Recipe Reviews / Chocolate Cake - My Way of Cooking
« on: June 20, 2011, 06:32:35 am »
My DH made this for me  ;D - very decadent!  6 eggs & only 50g of flour makes for a very moist cake.  Nice tasting but I don't think it is so good that you would use so many eggs and good chocolate.  I think that I prefer some of the simpler chocolate cakes on the forum  ;)

Questions? Technical Issues? The Survival Guide / Thermomix bread mat
« on: August 18, 2010, 03:38:56 am »
OK - I have searched the forum and cant seem to find anyone else with my problem.  I have only used my bread mat once and the dough stuck to the mat (a lot) - it was very painful to get all the dough off the mat.  Am I supposed to oil the mat? Has anyone else had this problem?

Introduce Yourself / New TM owner in Pinjarra, Western Australia
« on: August 07, 2010, 02:53:30 pm »
Hi all,

I am a recent TM owner and am so excited by it that I am also going to do the training to become a consultant  :D

I have two small children and a hubby that was sold on the sorbet (isn't it FANTASTIC).  I have been cooking at least two different things everyday since the TM was delivered.  Pancakes, crumpets, pineapple sorbet, mushroom risotto (turned out very gluey), heaps of baby food, chili mussels, steamed fish, mashed potatoes, butter, dips, apple & berry pie, porridge - and I'm sure there are a few things that I have forgotton to mention.

I lookforward to trying out many many of the recipes  ;D
