I recently started trying to prepare more sugarfree food. As I wrote in a previous post I prepare many recipes from Belle Gibson (owner of the ‘The Whole Pantry‘ app). These chocolate nutbutter cups are for example sugar-, gluten- and dairy-free and suitable for vegans and raw vegans.

Well I tried. My first attempt at making bagels. Not true….I made gluten free ones once a few years ago for my sister. They didn’t turn out much better than this really..
I can’t call them bagels really because the hole in the middle disappeared.
Am I disappointed? Yes. Will I try again? definitely!
The recipe is one I found on the internet :
450g plain flour,15g yeast, 375g warm water, 60g sugar, 5g salt.
Into a mixing bowl with everything. Mix until it forms a stiff dough (10 minutes), let rest 1 hour. Cut into 12 portions and shape into bagels. Let rest 20 minutes. Carefully put into boiling water, a couple at a time, for 1 minute on each side. Place on baking tray. Brush with egg white, sprinkle with stuff and bake 25 minutes at 220 degrees.
Did all that. Got a soggy bread roll with poppy seeds on it.
They did smell and taste good though….
I WILL try again……
Had a bit of a mushroom week this week.
and there was cauliflower, leek and mushroom soup with freshly made wholemeal soda bread….
Yes , we had a fungi-licious week.
The question is….which recipe goes up???
Cheese toasties for dinner tonight.
I love toasties.
Grainy bread, vintage cheddar cheese, thin slices of tomato, freshly ground black pepper, a little mustard, maybe even some off the bone ham.
What’s your favourite toastie filling??????
Corned beef for dinner tonight. Perfect.
Simple to prepare too…
I’ve got a 1.3kg piece of corned silverside. I’ve rinsed it under cold water and put it in a large pot with 1 large onion (cut in half), 6 whole cloves, 1 star anise ( not essential, but I do love that slight aniseed flavour), 1/2 cup of white vinegar, and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Then just cover the lot with cold water, put a lid on and bring to the boil. Turn the heat down, and let it all simmer for 2 – 2 1/2 hours. Then turn of the heat and leave it to sit for a further 1/2 hour so the meat rests in the liquid.
I’ll be throwing in some baby potatoes 1/2 an hour before I turn the heat off, and some brussel sprouts maybe 25 minutes later. Leave the veggies in with the meat when you turn the heat off. They’ll be fine.
I love to serve this with an avocado bearnaise.
let me know what you think…
