This is the first of a series.  I will post recipes as I test and am happy with the results.

Cakes / Crispy Coconut Biscuits.
« on: April 13, 2020, 03:24:59 am »
I was given 2 jars of Whole Ground Coconut Paste. No recipes on Google for this unusual ingredient. So I made up a recipe based on several on the Internet. I seems I will get 3 batches from a jar.  But what then for what happens to be a very popular biscuit. ?  I will try mixing desiccated coconut with coconut oil. For now, this is the recipe I used.
110g butter, soft
190 Caster Sugar
1 egg
200g SR Flour
Pinch salt
100 g Whole Ground Coconut Paste

Making and baking
Line 3 baking trays with baking paper.
Set oven 170 degrees

Mix sugar and butter, 30 seconds, speed 4, scrape down
Add coconut paste, mix 2 minutes, speed 4, scrape down.
Add egg, 20 seconds, speed 4
Add flour and salt, mix on kneading function until flour is incorporated.
Using an all ice cream scoop , place 12 small mounds on each baking tray, ( 36).
Press top gently with wet finger.
Can top with dried sour cherries, small blocks of preserved ginger, or any small topping
Bake 15 minutes, or until light brown around edges.
Will crisp up when cool
Very easy and very delicious.

Can make a similar coconut paste in TMX. 
Weigh equal amounts of desiccated coconut and coconut oil into TMX and mix on speed 8 until a smooth paste .  About 1 minute. 
A minimum 100g of each is enough for the TMX To successfully blend.

Soups / Zucchini and Tomato soup. Very low Calorie.
« on: February 04, 2020, 11:41:50 pm »
From my calculations, this makes 3 generous serves at 43 calories a serve.  The bonus is that it is extremely tasty and filling. Carbs 7 per serve.
200g peeled and chopped Zucchini
1 440 g tin of chopped tomatoes with Basil and Oragano.
( OR fresh Basil and Oregano added at end before blitzing. )
3 Massel stock cubes or 3 teaspoons of stock powder.
Add chopped and peeled Zucchini to TMX bowl and cover with water.
Cook 10 minute/ 100/ speed 1
Mix , 1 minute/ speed 9
Add stock cubes, tomatoes and 1/2 can of cold water.
Cook 10 minutes, speed 1
Add fresh herbs if using
Mix 30 seconds/ speed 8.

Can add 1/4 cup of milk after last mix,  stir in at low speed.
Some canned tomatoes has no sugar or salt.  Taste and adjust.
I used leftover soup as a base for pasta.
This recipe was inspired by RTE.  I usually use Cauliflower  as a base for my cream soups.  This is lighter and better for Summer

Jams and Chutneys / White Peach Jam.
« on: February 04, 2020, 10:58:42 pm »
White Peaches have a lovely delicate perfumed flavour and cooking them into jam without any extra liquid really intensifies this quality.  The joy of using the TMX is that once the formula is established, a constant result is guaranteed.
I leave the skins on as this adds to the lovely pink colour.
750g sliced White Peaches. Skins included
1/2 a large Granny Smith Apple, cored and 1/4 .
Juice of 1 small lemon
1 dessertspoons vanilla
525 g white sugar
3 teaspoons Jamsetta

Place a small dish in freezer

Place apple into TMX bowl and grate, 2 seconds/ speed 5
Add, sugar, peaches vanilla and lemon juice.  Cook 40 minutes/ 100 degrees/ speed 1
Add Jamsetta, cook15 minutes/ 110 degrees/ speed 1
Test a teaspoon of jan on dish from freezer.  Place back in freezer for 5 minutes.  After 5 minutes, if pushed with finger it should wrinkle.  If nor cook another 5 minutes until it sets.

This makes just under 1 litre. 3 to 4 small/ medium jars.

Notes.  I have made a batch replacing 200 g of the peaches with frozen Raspberries.
             Also added Cardamon and ground Pistachios to another batch. Very exotic.
Don’t think this would work with yellow peaches as they have a different texture.
Probably work well with Nectarines.
