Savoury Pinwheels

I was inspired by one of those 4 Ingredients style recipes. 

I thought "Well!  I can do that!!  With No-Tomato Sauce and Real Deli Chicken.  Easy!!"  (Yeah  I often think in exclamation marks.    !!!   Are you surprised?!?!?!) 

With the Deli Chicken,  to err on the side of caution we'll have to assume the amines are building up and up each time it is cooked...  so,  let's just consider this a 'moderate' amine dish and be careful if you're sensitive to amines. 

  • While the sheets are still frozen and on their plastic sheet, spread a layer of the sauce,  all the way to the edges.  How thick depends on your preference
  • Sprinkle with chopped chicken,  making sure it's all the way to the edges.
  • Roll the pastry (it will have thawed by now) away from you, holding the plastic sheet with one hand to pull back while you roll the pastry forward with the other.
  • With a good, sharp knife, chop into desired size.  I like to go half, then half and then thirds. 
  • Place onto lined tray, lying down sidewards and bake for 20-30 minutes at 180ºC
  • Can be frozen to pop into school lunch boxes,  but best eaten fresh.
Verdict:  Ms D says "That is rooolly nice!  Can I have some more?"  She and her sleepover friend just polished off a few more while I was distracted. 

Tweeks:  If you can tolerate amines  you might like to add a small amount of grated tasty cheese.  And if amines really, really aren't a problem... you might use additive-free bacon.



  1. They look soooooooo good! This recipe has motivated me to finish sorting out our kitchen so I can cook decent stuff again. (we just moved)

    1. Ashley, I sympathise. We moved 2 months ago.... Moving sucks! Good luck with your kitchen! frillypants x

  2. Hi

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.
