gluten free, thermomix recipes from karen aka brazen, based in canberra australia
More on Lana's sauce, and GF pasta making...
it was delicious!
the kids enjoyed theirs and ryan had seconds.
we had ours in a lasagne which i layered with Thermomix bechamel sauce (the thermomix stirs and cooks it all for you ;)) and dried GF lasagne. it was sooo good though quite rich.
thanks again to Lana and i definitely recommend giving her recipe a try!
I also had a go at making gluten free pasta last night! i was going to use it as the Lasagne noodles but didn't realise it had to rest in the fridge for an hour first. i used this recipe and it worked well. i made my own chia meal in the thermomix, and also milled polenta to make the grittier corn flour it called for.
so i left it over night and then had a go at making it with my new (replacement) pasta maker. which worked perfectly at first and then was nearly totally unusable by the time i was not even half way through the batch of pasta (the roller that rolls it into a sheet just seems to stick and is nearly impossible to turn, this is the exact same thing that went wrong with the first one - DON'T buy a Benzer brand pasta maker!!!!)
this dough is very different to work with compared to regular gluten pasta dough. it breaks quite easily, though i found adding a little extra oil helped. it then would stick into a huge lump as it 'fell' below the pasta maker, so i had to make very small amounts and literally toss them in GF flour (i just used a commercial plain blend) and then they would be fine.
they took minutes to cook and they were very yummy! unfortunately because of the SNAFU with the pasta maker i didn't make enough for a meal so geoff and i had it as a side dish (with pesto) with our dinner. i am keen to try again but not sure what to do with the stoopid pasta maker :( the fettucine cutter / roller works perfectly but the sheet roller won't work at all now. i'm wondering how frustrating it would be to just use a rolling pin (i was just squashing with my hand in the end lol)
oh and i forgot to say i made the dough in the thermomix of course ;)
