Chit Chat / Re: Kenwood cooking chef - alternative to Thermomix?

I believe this weighs about 25kg. I would have trouble lifting it.It's not compact and you would need a lot of kitchen worktop to use it and storage for the attachments.

I keep trying to hide things in recipes as well Thermomixer for my DH, with limited success.Tried to pull a fast one with Chicken In Yogurt and DH hated it.Thanks for the tip about using ricotta,probably get that passed him rather than the tofu.

Gingerbread dough is so " child friendly".I use to make the Delia Smith recipe years ago when my children were small and we had a cooking session with it.Off to find that old recipe.This forum is great for reminding me of forgotten recipes.You never know I might need it one day IF I have grandchildren.

Glad you tried it jd.I agree with you it is rich in flavour and it would be interesting to use milk chocolate.I'm not into tofu either but it's good to try other foods in the TM.

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.

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.
