A while back, I was going through a bit of an insomniac phase, but this, somewhat, worked in my favour, as I had loads of time to cook! My insomnia stromboli is a piece of delicious outcome from a not so very nice condition! I really hope someone tries the recipe, because it is very good! Very, veeeery good!
Most of the recipe is up to you! I did this the way I live! Feel free to add more of everything if you want!
- 300g of wholemeal strong flour
- 120ml of luke warm water
- 100g of sourdough starter
- 130g of Mozzarella
- 70g of mature cheddar
- 8 slices of jamon iberico
- Tomato Sauce (I made my tomato sauce from scratch, so I won’t bore you with the details… do it however you want!)
- Mix the flour, water and sourdough started and knead until smooth. Leave it resting overnight until at least double the size. As you may know, sourdough takes a long time to raise;
- Roll out the raised dough. Leave it about 1cm thick;
- Spread the tomato sauce over the dough, as in pizza;
- Spread out the mozzarella, the grated cheddar and the jamon evenly and in layers. Leave a 2cm edge around the dough;
- Roll up the dough and fold in the ends;
- Leave the stromboli resting for a few hours to rest in a warm place. This will further raise the dough;
- Place on a well oiled baking tray and bake for 20 mins on a pre-heated oven at 210C/mark 7.
Well, enjoy!!! It is very good to have with coffee!
A few months ago, after several posts on cakes and some other foods, a friend of mine complained that my food was biased. One of the bliss of having a lot of friends is the variety of food you get to cook them. Celiac, Wheat-Intolerant, Diabetics… well, what condition you may have, doesn’t mean you should be allowed to eat some tasty food.
Having diabetes as a constant threat on my health, as several members of my family have it, birthdays always needed to reach a common ground, in which everyone would be able to have anything on the table. Well, this gave us the opportunity to get creative and, now, I try to vary the recipes with no sugar at all. Some fat, reduced carbs, of course.
- 500g of mince meat
- Some bacon
- Butter, garlic and salt to taste
- Boil the potato for the mash
- Using the mince, bacon and onions, make two 300g burgers approximately 15cm in diameter, but this is up to you!
- Bake the burgers in the oven for 50 minutes, wrapped in foil
- For the sauce, deseed and chop fresh tomatoes and simmer in low heat with the mushrooms added.
- Place one burger over a plate, add a layer of cheese and sauce, place the other burger on top carefully and “ice” it with mash potatoes.
Next step is to make a recipe for everyone. No diet restrictions, nothing! A different and tasty meal that can be enjoyed by all!
I often try to avoid cooking anything other than the usual rice and pasta, but from time to time, I make the odd burger. Even that, I must start from the very beginning. Baking the bread, making the burger, cutting fresh potatoes… it takes a long time, but it is definitely worth it! Self-indulging myself with the food, but I must say, I am more proud of the preparation than the 20 minutes of certifying how delicious it was!
