Wednesday 16th February - smoothie, ltm, mozzarella, tomato and basil muffins, quick curry, garlic spice chicken, rice, veg

Breakfast - smoothie

Lunch - I made a quick curry with leftover cooked meat, tablespoon curry paste, 1/2 a tin of tomatoes - 10 minutes, 100°, reverse speed 1.

Did some snack making.
1. Some LTM's. (rice bubble bars, forum recipe)

2. Mozzarrella, Tomato and Basil muffins.
Felt like different muffins and dd1 had been keen on tomato and basil the other night so made up this recipe. I really liked these as did the older two, dd3 didn't. But a really nice light muffin.
This recipe makes 24 mini muffins.

200g plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 egg
200g milk
1 tomato quartered
150g mozzarella
1 1/2 tablespoons of fresh basil
20g oil

Preheat oven to 200°
Place basil in bowl and chop 4 seconds Speed 7
Add Tomato and mozzarella and chop 6 seconds Speed 6
Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, egg, milk and oil, Mix speed 4 10 seconds.
Pour into greased mini muffin tins and bake for 15 mins.

Dinner - Garlic spiced chicken with rice and vegetables.
Made a chicken marinade:
1 tbsp fresh oregano
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp paprika
20ml white wine vinegar
20 mls sherry
1 tbsp honey

Chop garlic and oregina 5 seconds speed 7
Add rest of ingredients and mix

Place chicken on baking paper in an oven dish and pour over marinade.
Heat oven to 180°
Place 800ml water in tmx bowl (no need to clean out from marinade)
Rice in basket.
Place chicken in oven and cook the rice for 16 mins, varoma temp, speed 4.
Place vegetables in varoma and add with 10 mins to go.

The chicken could also be cooked in the varoma in foil parcels.
Increase cooking time to 20-25 mins depending on thickness.

Really loved this marinade and will do again. Was a hit with all the kids. A nice sweetness and flavour.
