4 in 1 Challenge (with photo)
« on: September 09, 2010, 04:15:52 pm »

I love All in One Recipes. Some days back I thought if it would be possible to cook 4 dishes at the same time. I wanted to see my limits. This is how I came up with this recipe.

The dishes in this recipe are not completely related with each other. I mean it is not like we steam some meat in Varoma and cook its sauce in TM Bowl. In other words, they can be cooked separately in different times. What I wanted to see was if a 4-in-1 recipe would be possible.

It would be perfect if I could make also the dessert at the same time but... this is all I can.. for now! :)


The list of the dishes in this recipe:

Tomato Soup with Roquefort Cheese Sauce
Herby Chicken
Chard with Onion
Tomato Pilaf



It might look difficult judging from the length of the post but it is very easy





4 in 1 Challenge: Tomato Soup with Roquefort Cheese Sauce, Herby Chicken, Chard with Onion, Tomato Pilaf:
Number of People: 4

Roquefort Cheese Sauce
50g Roquefort

800g ripe red tomatoes
700g water

Preparation:

    * To prepare Roquefort Cheese Sauce: Put all the ingredients in TM Bowl and mix for 10 seconds on Speed 3 and then 10 more seconds on Speed 4-5. Set aside and keep in the fridge



    * Chop chard leaves. Cut onion thin slices (ring-shaped). Place all in Varoma Bowl


    * In a washed and wiped TM Bowl put parsley, basil, sage and rosemary leaves. Chope for 35 seconds on Speed 7.
    * Brush chicken fillets with a little oil and season with a little salt and pepper

    * Set aside Varoma Bowl and Tray and keep warm
    * Mix rice in steaming basket (so it would drain). Set aside, keep warm

    * Cook for 5 minutes at 100ēC on Speed 2-3
    * Blend for 1 minute on Speed 10


    * Spread Roquefort cheese sauce onto toasted slices. Serve soup into bowls. Place slices in the center of the bowls.

Not just a meal-in-one farfallina but a two course meal-in-one.  Brilliant.
