Curd plum dumplings

Jutta schau mal was ich gefunden habe. Die muss ich unbedingt machen.

With colours and Canito in the kitchen

And sweet tooth is still here! Now fruit dumplings which are as well big part of Czech cuisine 🙂

At the end of the 20th century, dumplings were considered to be unhealthy and unfashionable. It was related to the change of lifestyle, which gradually lost physical exertion and, of course, to the mass promotion of various “diets” in which the dumplings did not have a place. Nowadays, there is a renaissance of dumplings in connection with the return to the traditional Czech cuisine, both in restaurants and in households. Of course, it is important that the dumplings are made of good quality raw materials and using the right recipes. For an active person, traditional Czech cuisine does not pose any danger. Everything is, of course, a matter of measure – the size of the portion is essential to adapt to the energy supply. But I think… this belongs to every…

Baked Falafels

image
Ready in 60 minutes
Serves 8
180 Calories

Ingredients:

2 cups chopped spinach
3 large cloves garlic
1 large lemon (~2 1/2 Tbsp juice)
scant 1/2 tsp sea salt + black pepper
1 1/4 tsp cumin
1 15-ounce can chickpeas, well rinsed and drained
1/2 cup ground raw walnuts (or pecans, almonds, GF oat flour)

Directions:

Add spinach, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, and a healthy pinch each salt and pepper to a food processor and mix to combine.
Add chickpeas and pulse until incorporated but still slightly chunky. You want to maintain a bit of texture.
Transfer to a mixing bowl and add nut meal (or oat flour) and mix again until a loose dough is formed that’s firm enough to be handled. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. I added a touch more salt.
Draw an “x” in the dough to form 4 sections, then use your hands to form into 4 large patties roughly 1/2-inch thick, if you want to make four burgers.  Or divide evenly into 8 smaller patties and serves as appetizer with Tzatziki Sauce.
Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and refrigerate or freeze for 15 minutes to firm up.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (in the meantime.

OPTIONAL STEP: For a little extra crust on the outside, before baking heat a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat and add 2 Tbsp olive or canola oil. Swirl to coat pan, then add falafel. Carefully flip once golden brown – about 3-4 minutes – and then cook on the other side until golden brown as well – 3-4 more minutes. Return to baking sheet to continue baking. Otherwise, just add them straight to the oven for baking.

Bake for a total of 30-40 minutes, flipping once at the halfway point for even cooking. The longer you bake them, the firmer they’ll get!
Serve warm wrapped in a pita or chard bun and desired sauces / toppings. Alternatively, serve atop a salad and use the garlic sauce as a dressing.
Burgers will store in the fridge, layered with parchment paper in an airtight container, for several days. Freeze to keep longer.

Italian Flatbread (Piadina) with Fontina and Prosciutto

 

Piadini is typically cooked on a grill, however I usually cook it in a pan.  Piadini is much like pizza, except the crust doesn’t rise.

Makes great sandwiches

cooknart15

Servings 4 to 6

Ingredients

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon fine sea salt, plus extra for seasoning

1 stick butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, at room temperature

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 pound whole milk ricotta cheese

2 teaspoons lemon zest (from about 2 small lemons)

Freshly ground black pepper

6 ounces fontina cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)

4 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced-

1 cup chopped fresh basil

 

Directions:

In the bowl of your mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine the flour, baking soda, and 1 teaspoon of salt. On low speed,add butter and mix until incorporated, about 2 minutes. With the machine running, slowly add 10 to 12 tablespoons water until the mixture forms a dough around the hook. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead for 5 minutes until smooth. Cut the dough into 4 equal pieces. Form into disk shapes and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Place a grill pan over medium-high heat. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out each piece of dough into an 8 to 10-inch circle, about 1/8-inch thick. Brush each circle with the extra-virgin olive oil and grill for 4 minutes each side. Remove the piadina from pan to cool. Combine the ricotta cheese and lemon zest in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Spread each piadina with 1/2 cup of the ricotta mixture. Sprinkle the fontina cheese evenly over the ricotta cheese. Arrange 2 prosciutto slices on top of the cheeses. Cut each piadina into 8 wedges and transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with the chopped basil.

Pairs well with Cabernet Sauvignon
