Uni - I have made the EDC version a few times, a good dessert to have in the freezer. Most of the time it does not make it to the freezer.

« on: June 03, 2010, 07:09:16 pm »
Not-So-Naughty Chocolate dessert
Serves 4
200g silken tofu (silken is important)
1 large( or 2 small) oranges, peel discarded, cut into quarters
200g plain chocolate, minimum 50% cocoa solids, broken into 1cm pieces
1 tbsp Cointreau or Grand Marnier or Brandy or Rum ( optional)
1.Blend tofu and orange pieces 1 minute/speed 10.
2.Add chocolate and alcohol (if using).Heat 3 minutes/60oC/speed 6. Pour into individual ramekins or a large serving bowl and chill in the fridge.Serve as is or decorate with Terry's chocolate orange segments, or fresh fruit such as orange segments or kiwi fruit, or Orange Matchsticks, whipped cream, fromage frais, or grated chocolate.( I think it would look good made in a ring mould with fresh orange segments in the centre)

It tasted great.I think I could even fool my DH to like it.

Sorry no photos ( I still have to take that evolutionary step !!!!)

JD - Have never eaten tofu in my life so it was a big step for me.  In hindsight I think I should have used milk chocolate and not dark chocolate as it was quite rich and the flavour of the orange didn't come through although I could certainly taste the cointreau. Besides that I really don't like dark chocolate so why I keep using it is beyond me.  I made 6 little pots as it is very rich but the flavour does grow on you after a few spoonsful.

Denzelmum - Tried this with Aldy's milk chocolate and no alcohol.  Put in little baby ramekin.  Next time I will cut the amount of orange, too dominant and maybe better quality chocolate will improve the flavor.  Very quick and easy.

I went to U.K. Thermomix to pick up a lid seal and was invited by John and Janie to join in the demo that Janie was doing today.
It included the basics but a few recipes new to me.I thought I would share them with you and will post them.

Tips and Tricks / Re: The Perfect Brush for Blades on the Thermomix
« on: May 28, 2010, 01:15:50 pm »
Just looking at this I'm tempted to go into our local gun shop to see the the reaction if I asked for a M16 cleaning brush.Knowing how paranoid they are about gun ownership here in the U.K I would be under investigation by the local constabulary. "Please sir it's for my Thermomix"I find that a brush that you supposed to clean a teapot spout with good at getting in and around the blades.There must be a patent waiting to be discovered out there!!

It's amazing that I hadn't noticed this recipe before.Great looking picture jd and I will put it on my "to do list."

I was fortunate to go to a demo when Janie Turner launched the Indian book and the coriander chili paste was one of the things that she made.She warned us when tasting at the end to be very very careful of the stuff.Mind you I think my SIL will think it mild to some of the things that he eats.Janie suggested that you use about a teaspoonful to start with, can always add more if you like it hotter.I like spicy flavours but hate it when it is too hot and you are gasping for air.

Many years ago I moved back to the U.K after spending a long time globe trotting with my husband and I was completely lost.Our kids seem to become independent overnight. I joined the local college to do a cookery course once a week.Had great fun which started my interest in cooking. I have had my machine for 4 years and I have high and lows of using it.I know that after finding this wonderful forum it has given me inspiration. I love the recipes, chatter, tips  and hints.

judydawn look at the Chicken in Coconut Sauce page 102.I thought this was very mild and you could reduce the heat by taking the seeds out of the chillies.

Have you tried the Lamb Dhansak?We loved it, although I wouldn't seek out the 4 different dahl next time as I couldn't tell the difference once it was cooked.The Cardamon cake is good although more an adults cake.The Butter chicken is a favourite and I liked quirkycooking's idea of using coconut cream instead of the cream.It's good looking through deciding what to cook next.
