Quiche

Quiche?  Is there a place for quiche in a Failsafe diet?  Well,  this recipe has some amines,  so if you are particularly sensitive,  then no.  Or else,  leave out the cheese and see how you go. (I'd love to hear what that turns out like.)  This quiche sort of evolved...  mostly by what I had available in the fridge.  Also,  our quiche dish is really wide and flat,  unlike our old one which was quite deep. Quiche is something I used to make with bacon and hands full of cheese.  I loved that creamy, salty flavour.  I wondered if this might be an insipid copy and I was wrong.  It was really quite delicious!!!!

One problem,  Ms C hates quiche.  Well, she hates pastry and, therefore, anything attached to pastry.  Mr frillypants came up with a solution, we hope, which we'll try tonight.

Ingredients:
  • 4 eggs
  • 20g Greek Yogurt
  • 110 g Pouring Cream
  • 180g Milk
  • 1 leek, sliced finely
  • 1-2 spring onions, sliced finely
  • Small palm size piece of butternut pumpkin,  sliced finely with a vegetable peeler
  • Salt to taste
  • Grated Parmesan / Grana Padano cheese - about 2 tabs
  • 1 quantity short-crust pastry, blind-cooked about 15 minutes in quiche dish
Method:
  • Preheat a griller/broiler
  • Saute leek and pumpkin slivers in TMX or frypan
  • Allow to cool and place into pastry shell, covering base evenly
  • Sprinkle over this with cheese
  • Place under griller and grill until cheese has melted, set aside
  • Turn on oven to mod heat
  • In TMX or a 1 litre jug, combine eggs, yogurt, cream, milk
  • Pour egg mixture into pastry shell, over leek etc
  • Sprinkle over top with spring onion
  • Cook at 180deg C for approx 20-30 minutes. (depends on your pan a bit)
  • Allow to sit to finish cooking before serving with steamed vegies and maybe some oven fries.
Verdict:
We all,  except the Failsafer, loved this meal!!  Ms D tried to go for thirds,  but there was none left. 

Tweeks:
Mr Frillypants suggested today that we try this recipe again and make a macaroni-bake-in-a-ramekin sort of thing for Ms C to eat.  Hopefully then she can join in the eggy fun.   Stay tuned!!

Sandra's No-Tomato Sauce

I have been using this all over the place...  and a bit like the Deli Chicken,  it has helped save Failsafe cooking all over again.  People on the facebook Failsafe pages are talking about it,  it has been translated into Thermomix-ese on the "Something From Nothing" page and here's mine.

Oh,  but first,  here's --->  Sandra's original.



Ingredients :

1 tin Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed150g Pear, about 2 large halves1 teaspoon Citric Acid1/4 cup (50g) Brown Sugar1 teaspoon Salt2 medium Carrots*, peeled and roughly chopped 1 stick Celery, roughly chopped4 Spring onions roughly chopped3-4 cloves of garlic1/2 cup WaterMethod:
Add all ingredients, except water, to TMX and pulverise on Speed 8 for about 5-8 secondsAdd waterWith MC in, cook for 25minutes,  Speed 3,  100ºC Purée by gradually increasing to Speed 9 for about 15 seconds*Moderate Salicylates

Verdict:  When I first tasted this I thought....    >.<  ewwww!...  but then I remembered I'd just ta…

Real Deli Chicken

The internet community is amazing, isn't it?  I have been a part of special interest forums (infertility, breastfeeding, homebirth, parenting, Thermomix, Failsafe diet) and I love that there's always someone out there with the information you need.  This recipe is exactly that.  On the 'Beyond Failsafe - Biomedical Treatment for Food Intolerances' facebook group, one person asked for some 'chicken-y school lunch ideas'.  Along came Meredith H. with her very simple answer.  She soaks chicken in brine,  poaches it...  and as easy as that you have a very commercial-tasting 'Deli Chicken' with no cruddy ingredients what-so-ever.  Her kids call it 'white bacon'...  we played around with 'chacon', 'bicken'...  and the winner is Real Deli Chicken.

Yorkshire Pudding

Mr frillipants' mum gave me this recipe, which really is the easiest-peasiest thing ever.

I am in the habit of making this with most roasts now, whether it's red or white meats, and it tastes so yummy with the meat and roasted veggies.  The recipe that I have says cooking time is 40-50 minutes,  which is seriously wrong. No idea where they got that? What I normally do is, when I have taken the cooked meat out of the oven to rest, and the veggies are still cooking, I put my 12-hole muffin tray in to start heating up.  I've already put a tiny dribble of a failsafe oil into each cup.  After a few minutes, I take the hot muffin tray out and, working very quickly, I pour the batter into each cup to about 1/3 full.  This will fill all 12 cups, giving the frillipantii 2 each... because we're greedy-gubbinses when it comes to Yorkshire Puddingses.
