Made with plain wheat flour, fresh homeamde butternut squash puree, and crisp fried onion, these simple tasty pumpkin scones are best served with butter, sour cream or chutney over a pot of tea. They are the perfect addition to every fall and holiday table and might be the best way to celebrate pumpkin season.

  • 400 g Plain flour, sifted
  • 15 g Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 125 g Butter, chopped, at room temperature
  • 220 g Pumpkin puree, cooled
  • 80 ml Buttermilk, plus extra to glaze
  • 2 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 Small egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp Dried thyme
  • 100 g Crisp fried onions
  • Herb sour cream to serve
  1. Preheat oven to 220C/430F. Line two oven trays with parchment paper. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. Rub in butter lightly using fingertips, until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  2. Make a well in centre. Add pumpkin puree, buttermilk, maple syrup, egg, dried thyme and fried onions.
  3. Using a bread and butter knife, mix quickly to a soft, sticky dough. Do not over-mix. Turn onto a floured surface. Knead lightly. Press out to form a round about 2cm thick and cut into 10-12 rounds or your desired size and shape.
  4. Place them on the prepared trays. Brush with extra buttermilk. Bake 20-22 minutes or until scones sound hollow when tapped. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with herb sour cream or your favourite chutney.

Blooming Onion

If you like onion rings, you're going to love this blooming onion. The name "blooming onion" stems from the fact that the finished dish resembles a flower.
The onion is first cut to 16 strips that resemble the petals of a flower when fanned out, then coated with well seasoned flour mixture and deep-fried to a beautifully golden brown and satisfying crisp goodness. Not only it is delicious, but it also has a unique appearance that looks great and is fun to eat. With only a handful of ingredients, you can create this unique appetizer in your own kitchen. Serve it with your favourite dipping sauce (chipotle sauce, spicy mayonnaise, or garlic yoghurt).

  • 1 Large white/yellow onion
  • 120 g Plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked paprika powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sweet paprika powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Dried thyme
  • A large pinch of ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 Eggs
  • 125 ml Milk
  • 1 kg / Lard for deep frying (or 1l sunflower oil)
  1. Combine the plain flour, paprika powders, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, dried thyme and ground cumin in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, beat eggs and milk until combined.
  2. Cut a tiny slice off the tip of yellow onion, then peel off the brown outer layer of skin. Flip the onion cut side down, then begin slicing about 1/2 inch away from the root. I find it easiest to do 4 quarter slices, then cut each quarter into 4 sections, that's 16 sections total. Turn the onion over and carefully fan out.
  3. Holding onion from base, dip in spiced flour mixture, coating petals thoroughly. Shake off excess. Dip in egg wash, letting any excess egg wash drip off, and again in flour mixture, so each petal is thoroughly coated. Pat off any excess flour.
  4. Heat lard or vegetable oil in a deep saucepan to 175C/350F. Immerse onions, cut-side down into the lard for 3-4 minutes. Turn over and fry for 2-3 minutes or until nicely golden brown and crisp. Drain on paper towel. Serve immediately with your favourite dipping sauce.

Vitello Tonnato

Saturday, October 09, 2021

© 2021 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




© 2021 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com


Vitello tonnato is a classic Italian entrée of cold, sliced veal served with a creamy, mayonnaise-like sauce that has been flavoured with tuna and garnished with capers. As unusual, or even weird, as this combination might sound at first, they go surprisingly well together and taste really good ... defintiely a new ultimate surf & turf for me. Traditionally it's made with veal top round, but I find that the rich veal tongue pairs perfectly with this creamy, tangy, salty and slightly spicy tuna sauce. The old fashioned way of preparing a tonnato doesn't include mayonnaise, but hard-boiled eggs. Tonnato is not only great with meat, also fantastic with grilled veggies, pasta or salad. So make an extra batch and enjoy it!

Tonnato Tuna Dressing
  • 1 / 800-1000 g Beef tongue, organic and grass-fed
  • 1 Large onion, chopped
  • 1 Carrot, chopped
  • 1 stalk Cellery, chopped
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 2 Cloves
  • 3 Garlic cloves
  • 6 Parsley sprigs
  • 300 ml Dry white wine
  • 300 ml Water
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
  • 140 g Tuna in its own juice, drained
  • 3 Anchovy fillets, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Capers, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 Jalapeno pepper
  • 150 g Homemade mayonnaise
  • 60 ml Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • Lemon zest, to garnish
  • Chopped flat parsley, to garnish
  • Caper berries, to garnish
  1. Rinse the veal tongue thoroughly. Place the tongue, chopped vegetables, spices, salt and pepper in the instant pot. Add in white wine and water to cover the tongue. Close and seal the lid. Select 'pressure cook' and set time for 40 minutes. Allow the pressure to release naturally. This will take about 15 minutes.
  2. Unlock and remove the lid. Using tongs, remove the tongue. Peel the tough skin off while still hot. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 45 minutes. To make tuna dressing. Blend tuna, anchovies, capers, lemon juice, jalapeno pepper, mayonnaise and olive oil until smooth. Taste and season tonnato with salt. Transfer the tuna sauce into a jar and refrigerate until chilled, about 20 minutes.
  3. Cut the tongue crosswise into 1/4-inch thick slices and arrange them on plates. Spoon some of the sauce over the tongue medallions and garnish with the lemon zest, chopped flat parsley and capers. You can also pour 1/4 cup of tuna sauce on a plate, then arrange the sliced veal tongue over, and garnish as desired.

Roast Pumpkin and Pistachio Gremolata

Wednesday, October 06, 2021

© 2021 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




© 2021 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com


Pistachio gremolata, lightly sweetened with clear honey, is baked with the Hokkaido pumpkin wedges for extra crispness, and this recipe works with almost any kinds of pumpkins (acorn, kent or butternut) or root vegetables. Instead of pistachios, you can use other nuts like toasted coconut chips, pine nuts, pepitas or hazelnuts.

Pistachio Gremolata
  • 1-1.2 kg Pumpkin, deseeded, skin on and cut into 2-3cm wedges
  • 10 Garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Red-wine vinegar
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 300 g Greek-style yoghurt, to serve
  • 20 g Parsley
  • 2 tsp Aleppo pepper (or chilli flakes)
  • 30 g Shelled pistachios, roughly chopped
  • 50 g Breadcrumbs
  • Zest of 1 organic lemon
  • 1 tbsp Runny honey
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for serving
  • Salt and black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Put the pumpkin wedges into a large baking tray, add the garlic cloves, olive oil, vinegar and salt and pepper, then toss until evenly coated. Roast for 35-40 minutes, until the pumpkin is soft and golden around the edges.
  2. For the gremolata, roughly chop the parsley, chilli and pistachios, and put in a bowl with the remaining gremolata ingredients. Mix until everything is coated in the olive oil and honey.
  3. Remove the tray from the oven and sprinkle the gremolata evenly over the pumpkin. Return the tray to the oven and roast for a further 10 minutes, until the pumpkin is soft and the breadcrumbs are golden.
  4. When cool enough to handle, squeeze out the soft garlic flesh from the bulb and mix into the Greek-style yoghurt.
  5. Spread the garlic flavoured Greek yoghurt on serving plates and top with a final drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil. Arrange the roasted pumpkin wedges over and enjoy!

Pumpkin Falafels

Sunday, October 03, 2021

These falafels are full of pumpkin flavour, soft in the center and crisp on the outside. Enjoy them in a salad, serving them in a warmed split pita pocket or just on their own. I like serving these on a bed of salad with a lemony Greek yoghurt dressing, but a green tahini sauce (a mixture of cilantro, lemon juice, garlic and sesame paste) would be just amazing if you want to go dairy-free.

FalafelsYoghurt Dressing
  • 400 g Cooked chickpeas, drained
  • 250 g Roasted pumpkin, mashed
  • 1 tbsp Chickpea flour (or cornstarch)
  • 1 Small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp Garam masala
  • 1 tsp Cumin powder
  • 1 Fresh red chilli pepper, finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp Fresh flat-leaf parsley (or cilantro), chopped
  • 2/3 tsp Black salt (or regular sea salt)
  • Olive oil
  • 150 g Plain Greek yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. In your food processor, pulse the chickpeas until chunky puree forms. You can use a fork to mash them too.
  2. Mash the roasted pumpkin in a large bowl. Add in chickpeas, chickpea flour, red onion, minced garlic, garam masala, cumin, chilli pepper, parsley and salt. Mix well and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Shape the mixture into 16 balls and place on a greased baking tray or lined with baking paper. Spray the falafel with olive oil and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. The edges should be crispy and the center is still soft.
  4. Meanwhile, combine yoghurt, lemon juice and minced garlic in a small bowl. Season to taste. Serve falafels with yoghurt dressing.
