How to bake with vegetables
OK, so baking a courgette into a decadent cake won’t make it super-healthy, but you’d be surprised what it can do for the texture. The same goes for this clever, low-carb pizza base
i made this gorgeous chocolate cake last night that consists of nothing but 6 eggs, 400 gr melted chocolate [45% cocoa] and a large cupful of ground almonds though half almonds /half spelt flour works too.
melt choc, add eggs, beat, add almonds/flour with a teaspoon of baking powder mixed through, stir gently, bake at 160 c for 40-50 mins.
i also made ganache with another 100 gr of choc and equal amount of cream.
In the heyday of 1970s vegetarianism, quiche was the go-to dish. Everybody was making them. When I taught vegetarian cooking classes then, quiche (not the classic quiche lorraine with lardons, of course) would be one of the first recipes I’d teach. I made them by the sheet pan for catering jobs; they were extremely popular, even though I now know that the crusts I made in those days weren’t very good, and the formula I used for the custard wasn’t nearly as satisfying as the formula I use now.
