Pizza - Bubble and Squeak

Bubble and Squeak Pizza
Bubble and Squeak??  If you're English or Australian,  you probably know Bubble and Squeak as "What we do with leftovers fro a roast dinner".  And you'd be right.  Here's a what Wikipedia says:  Bubble_and_squeak.

This way well be Mr frillypants' favourite ever pizza!!  He loves his vegies and so vegies on a pizza??  Yummo!!  So,  in the fridge I had a few left over vegies from the roast chicken the previous night.  I put it all on the pizza,  added a little extra and voila!  A very tasty and healthy pizza.  Mr frillypants and I loved it.  The kids... wouldn't even try.  ha ha ha.

Ingredients:
  • 1 portion Pizza Base
  • left over roast vegies:  potato, parsnip, pumpkin; whatever you have in the fridge
  • left over meat if you have it/would like.
  • A little cabbage, finely sliced
  • 1/4 leek, finely sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
Method:
  • Saute leek, garlic and cabbage
  • Sprinkle over pizza base
  • Slice leftover vegies and meat and arrange over pizza
  • Brush with a little oil
  • Cook for about 20-30 minutes
Verdict:  The kids know a healthy pizza when they see one.  They wouldn't touch it with a barge pole!!  I hope they don't talk about me when they're grown up:  "My mum used to make pizzas, but she used to put all this healthy stuff on it!!  Blergh!!"

Tweeks:  I can't really tweek this... it's all a bit fly-by-the-seat-of-ya-pants.  Just see what's in the fridge and go for it!

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…

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.

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.
