Potato and Leek Soup

Made this Potato and Leek soup from the EDC cookbook and it was delicious. So smooth and creamy.

Tweaks: added one clove of garlic, used less stock 550ml, and used salt reduced masel chicken stock with a small TBsp of Stock Paste.

Wholemeal Spelt Rolls

Made these yesterday by tweaking the bread recipe in the EDC.
Used 50g wholemeal spelt and 450g bakers flour and had to add some more water and knead a bit longer until the dough was the right texture.

Fruity Dream: Banana and Mixed Berries

Whipped up a fruity dream as in EDC cookbook using a couple of frozen banana's I had and a few mixed berries.

I didnt have many berries left but you can see they take over the colour of the dessert. You could still taste the banana flavour though and was like a gelato texture. A great summer treat!

Tip: When you have ripe banana's peel them and freeze them in some zip lock bags. Makes great fruity dream with gelato like texture.

Chicken and Bacon Risotto

I now make a few adjustments to the risotto recipe in the EDC cookbook. I use 390g of rice and 1000 of water and increase my parmesan to 70g and add a clove of garlic to it. This is a bacon and chicken one. Dont forget to let it rest in your thermoserver for 5 minutes as it will look like a soup when you first pour it in. After 5 minutes the grains will plump up and absorb the lovely liquid.

Spicy Chicken with Sweet Potato and Tomato Rice

Last night I made this dish from a recipe we made at Cathy Mueller's cooking class. Cathy added some spinach to hers and I think you need a bit of colour to help the presentation but I didnt have any spinach left.
The chicken and sweet potato are cooking in the varoma at the top whilst the rice is bubbling away in the basket at the bottom in the tomato mix. Great all in one meal.

The original similiar recipe is here, posted by "I Love Bimby":

I halved the amount of chicken and sweet potato as the full amount is HUGE!

Bread Rolls from EDC

These were made using the basic bread recipe in the EDC. The girls dont like seeds on theirs and also dont like them as crusty, hence, the colour difference. My husband laughs at the shapes of them but I threw them together real quick for a sausage sizzle at the last minute.
