Thereís nothing like a good laugh and good friends Chookie.                                                                 Today I went to the gym, went shopping for food and clothes, had my eyes tested (and now have to see the Opthalmologist in a couple of weeksí time) then popped in to see a friend.  A full day.

Thanks cookie, it certainly was different to any other tuna dish Iíve posted.

Seafood and Fish / Tuna vegetable casserole
« on: Today at 10:59:26 am »

This recipe came about because of having bits and pieces in the veggie crisper to use up.

2 tsp olive oil
80g onion, quartered
60g red capsicum, cut into chunks
100g sliced mushrooms
1 bunch broccolini, ends trimmed.
1 large tin tuna

Cheese sauce - 2 tsp Flora light margarine (or butter if it suits your diet), 2 T plain flour, 300ml low fat milk, 60g low fat cheese and 20g Parmesan (will be divided later), S & P

Topping - crispbread (crushed) or breadcrumbs mixed with 35g of the cheese.

Heat the olive oil in the TM bowl on Varoma temperature for 2 minutes.
Add the quartered onion and the red capsicum, chop 6 sec/speed 7 then add the sliced mushrooms and cook 5 minutes/varoma temp/speed 2/reverse/MC off.  Place the mixture into the bottom of a casserole dish.

Meanwhile steam the covered broccolini in the microwave with a small quantity of water for 3 minutes on high. Place on a chopping board and cut into 4 cm pieces then mix it with the other veggies in the casserole dish.

Rinse and dry the TM bowl then chop the cheeses 8 sec/speed 6.  Reserve 45 g cheese for the sauce and the rest (35g) for the topping.

Rinse and dry the bowl again. Place 2 tsp Flora light margarine or butter into the TM bowl, melt 1 minute/speed 1.
Add the flour and cook 2 mins/90 degrees/speed 1, stopping the machine and helping to incorporate the flour with a spatula twice during the cooking time.
Add the milk, mix on speed 5 to incorporate the flour mixture for a few seconds then cook for 6 mins/90 degrees/speed 3.
Add the larger quantity of grated cheese and S & P to taste then cook 2 mins/90 degrees/speed 3.
Pour the sauce over the tuna, sprinkle with the combined topping ingredients and bake 180 degrees Celsius for 20-25 minutes or until heated through and topping is brown.

I love the little loaves of assorted breads Chookie, a great idea.
Julie the colour of your minestrone looks so vibrant and I agree with you re the amount of icing needed for the cake.  You would have had heaps left over.

I swapped what I had planned for dinner today and had the chicken roast for lunch as I had a sudden craving for something tuna.  I sautťd some onion, red capsicum and mushrooms in the TMX then placed them on the bottom of a casserole dish. I steamed a bunch of broccoli, cut it into short lengths and added that to the other veggies in the dish.  Flaked a large can of tuna over the top then made a low fat version of cheese sauce and poured that over the top. Finished it with a topping of low carb crushed crisp bread & a small amount of Parmesan.  It was surprisingly very tasty and a change from the old tuna mornay, I would most certainly make it again. Iíll add a picture after I have another serve sometime tomorrow.

Yes I must remember that Gert.  Itís just that Iím into cooking again at the moment (albeit on a small scale) but when my DD and SIL return to SA Iíll probably share my cooked meals with them at times so Iíll be cooking a greater variety in meals I would think.

That would have been nice Chookie, theyíre both great helpers in the kitchen.  They must be missing going cruising, do they have any idea when their next one will be available?

The sneaky hug would have been very special Chookie.                                                                        A quick sale is a good sale Michele, it must have been hard explaining the machine to someone who has no experience with one.  I wouldnít know where to start, we just do it automatically without thinking too much donít we?  With all this talk between you and Julie re the new model I find I am telling myself I donít need to upgrade from the TM31 for 1 person - I donít, I donít, I donít.

Yes and sheís married to a lawyer so that could have been interesting.
Oh the early days, it was so different because we were the first real forum for Thermomix recipes and our members recipes were so much better than the original cook books we all bought.  Then every man and his dog got on board and now we have too many choices.  Thanks to those who have continued to support us, it seems to be the same small group with the odd Ďoldí member popping back to join us which is great to see.  Never any comments from totally new members but thatís OK, we have each other.  I think that deserves a group hug.

I checked your recipe out when I went over to find the link Chookie, I must make it one of these days too.

Thanks Julie, I had a quick look before I went for my haircut (finally) and I saw several things on the list that I need and cannot buy at local supermarkets at the moment so later Iíll send an order through.  No hurry for the celery seeds so delivery time is OK by me.
