Beluga Lentil Zottarella Salad with Fresh Turmeric Vinaigrette

Thursday, June 23, 2016

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




Tiny, black and round with a rich earthy flavour and chewy texture, beluga lentils are named for the caviar they resemble. They hold their shape and firm texture when cooked, making them a good choice for salads. You can easily replace them with French green lentils. Fresh turmeric is the star in this anti-inflammatory dressing that adds incredible flavour and texture to this comforting salad.

Fresh Turmeric VinaigretteSalad
  • 100 ml Olive oil
  • 2-inch Fresh turmeric, peeled and grated
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tbsp White balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp Black pepper, ground
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 200 g Beluga black lentils, rinsed
  • 150 g Zottarella minis
  • 120 g Baby spinach
  • 1-2 Peaches, stoned and sliced
  • Basil and parsley
  1. To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a jar and shake until well combined. Chill until ready for use.
  2. Fill a medium pot with 700 ml water and bring it to a boil. Add in rinsed black lentils and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until tender but still firm. Drain immediately through a fine strainer and rinse briefly with cool water. Drain again, set aside and allow to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, toss the cooled lentils with half of the dressing. Add the zottarella minis, peaches, parsley and basil and toss briefly. Divide the spinach leaves on two serving plates and spoon the lentil salad over. Serve with the additional dressing.

No Bake Almond Butter Tart with Speculoos Cookie Crust

Thursday, June 16, 2016

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




This features a creamy, rich roasted almond butter-ricotta cheese filling in a no bake speculoos cookie crust. I have used homemade roasted almond butter rather than the peanut butter used in the original recipe, but any other nut butter will also work. Also, the recipe called for chocolate ganache as the topping, but I just simply garnished the tarts with a few drizzles of melted white chocolate and some chopped pistachio nuts.

CrustFillingTopping
  • 220 g Speculoos cookies
  • 60 g Butter, melted
  • 200 g Ricotta cheese
  • 180 g Homemade roasted almond butter
  • 1/3 tsp Vanilla powder
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil, softened
  • 10 drop Vanilla-flavoured liquid stevia
  • White chocolate, chopped
  • Pistachio nuts, chopped
  1. Finely crush cookies in a food processor or blender. Melt butter. In a bowl stir the melted butter and crushed cookies together. Firmly press down cookie mixture into two 12-cm tart pans or one 24-cm pan. Place in the refrigerator while making the filling.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the ricotta cheese, almond butter, vanilla powder, coconut oil and liquid stevia together until fluffy with an electric mixer.
  3. Scrape the mixture into the tart shells and smooth the surface with a spatula. Return to the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
  4. Melt the white chocolate in a microwave and drizzle over the tarts. Garnish with pistachio nuts.

Buttermilk Spelt Emmer Dinner Rolls

Thursday, June 09, 2016


http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com





http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com


I like to play around with rich, sweet and nutty ancient grains when baking bread, but you can use modern wheat flour instead. Emmer is also called Farro and quite similar in flavour of Einkorn. This recipe makes 6-8 rolls depending on the size you want. You could also bake this in a loaf pan for a tasty sandwich bread.

  • 190 g Buttermilk, well shaken and room-temperature
  • 150 g Rye sourdough starter, 100% hydration
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 200 g Organic spelt bread flour
  • 100 g organic emmer berries, ground into flour
  • 2 tsp Coconut sugar
  • 5 g Active dry yeast
  1. Measure all the ingredients and place, in the order listed, into your bread pan. Select the dough setting. Start the machine.
  2. Once dough setting is complete, remove dough from bread machine and place on a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 6 or 8 pieces. Shape each into a ball and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and set aside for 45 minutes until doubled in size.
  3. Pour a cup of water into the roasting tray at the bottom of the oven and preheat it to 210C/420F and pour. Bake the bread for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Thursday, May 26, 2016

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com


These white chocolate truffles with beetroot powder, which need only a few ingredients and very easy to make, are decadent, sweet, smooth and creamy. They are a wonderful after-dinner treat with a rich espresso shot and will also make the perfect gift.

  • 3 tbsp Almond milk
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 10 g Beetroot powder
  • 200 g White chocolate, cut into small pieces
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  1. Place almond milk and coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook until the coconut oil is melted and well combined with almond milk. Now stir int beetroot powder until well combined.
  2. Place the chopped white chocolate in a heatproof bowl and set over a pot of simmering water, making sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl.
  3. Stir chocolate occasionally as it softens. When you have just a few small unmelted chunks, remove bowl from heat (residual heat will melt the rest).
  4. Now stir in the beetroot mixture until well combined. Cover and chill for 1 hour or until pliable but firm enough to scoop.
  5. Place coconut flakes in a bowl. Working quickly roll a teaspoon of truffle mixture into a ball and gently roll with coconut flakes until evenly coated.

Enjoy a delicious quinoa spring salad with lentil and asparagus. It's bursting with flavour thanks to pine nuts, walnut oil and raspberry vinegar. Good-quality vinegar and walnut oil make all the difference in this dressing. If you don't have black quinoa, regular white one will work just great.

Goat Whey Workout Bars with Almond, Chia and Oats

Thursday, May 05, 2016

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




Fiber-rich complex carbohydrates in organic oats are combined with protein-rich goat milk protein powder, almond flour and healthy fat from coconut oil. This is a healthy and delicious treat that promotes muscle growth and aids in recovery after a long hard workout. I have used stevia syrup here, but maple syrup or honey will work just great. If you are not fancy for diary-based protein, hemp protein and pumpkin seed protein are great alternatives.

  • 120 g Rolled oats, toasted and ground into flour
  • 60 g 100% Goat whey protein, vanilla flavoured
  • 100 g Almond flour
  • 30 g Chia seeds
  • 60 g Coconut oil, melted
  • 130 g Light coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp Plain stevia syrup
  1. To toast oats, cook in a dry skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until they are golden brown. Set aside to cool, then grind into flour.
  2. Grease and line a 22cmx14cm rectangular pan with a plastic wrap.
  3. Combine toasted oat flour, goat whey powder, almond flour and chia in a bowl. Set aside. In a saucepan, add in coconut oil, coconut milk and stevia syrup. Heat gently over low heat, stirring occasionally, until coconut oil melted and the mixture well combined.
  4. Pour into the dry ingredients and thoroughly mix until everything is well combined. Press the mixture into the prepared pan and chill for at least 2 hours or overnight until firm. Slice and enjoy.

Slow Cooker Sriracha Meatballs

Thursday, April 21, 2016

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




This is a quick and easy slow cooker recipe. Sriracha and honey come together perfectly as the hot and sweet sauce. If you like the meatballs more sweet than spicy, then simply add more honey. The meatballs stay really moist and tender and the sauce soaks up a lot of the meaty flavour with that long and slow cooking process.

SauceMeatball
  • 100 g Sriracha sauce
  • 150 g Honey
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp Fresh lime juice
  • 1 Red onion, sliced
  • 500 g Ground beef
  • 4 tbsp Bread crumbs
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Sriracha
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Combine sriracha, honey, minced garlic and lime juice in a slow cooker on high heat.
  2. In a large bowl add all the meatball ingredients and mix until well combined. Shape the mixture into meatballs about the size of pingpong balls.
  3. Stir sriracha sauce in the slow cooker until combined. Taste and add additional honey or sriracha as necessary to suit your heat preference. Add in sliced onions, then the meatballs. Reduce heat to medium and cook, covered, for 4-5 hours.

Overnight Spelt Einkorn Bread

Thursday, April 14, 2016

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com


http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com





http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com


This is a simple sandwich loaf made with my favourite einkorn and spelt, risen with less yeast and wonderful flavour which comes from the long, slow, overnight fermentation in the fridge.

Overnight Spelt Einkorn Bread

inspired by this
  • 3 g Fresh yeast
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 40 ml Warm water
  • 180 ml Soya milk, lukewarm
  • 250 g Spelt bread flour
  • 120 g Einkorn flour
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 20 g Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Oat flour for dusting
  1. Place the yeast, maple syrup and warm water in a bowl. Whisk with a fork to dissolve yeast. Stand in a warm place for 10 minutes or until frothy.
  2. Place spelt bread flour, and einkorn flour into a large bowl. Stir in sea salt, yeast mixture and olive oil. Mix to form a soft dough, about 10 minutes. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place in a large, lightly greased bowl. Cover and leave in a cool place to rest for 2 hours.
  3. Lightly grease a standard loaf pan. Knock back the dough and knead until smooth. Shape into a log. Place in the prepared pan. Cover with lightly greased plastic wrap and leave overnight (8-10 hours) to rise in the fridge.
  4. Take it out of the fridge next morning and put it somewhere warm to carry on rising: it could take from 1 to 3 hours. Preheat oven to 200C/400F fan-forced.
  5. Lightly dust the risen dough with oat flour. Bake in the hot oven for 10 minutes, then turn down the temperature to 180C/200C fan-forced, and bake for a further 25 minutes or until golden and hollow-sounding when tapped. Turn onto a wire rack to cool.
