Boiled omelette

I love matured cheese, and frittata seems to me one of the ideal dishes to highlight it. In addition, I can combine it with various vegetables such as mushrooms, tomatoes, anything my heart desires. Frittata is very easy to prepare and is a complete meal that goes very well for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I highly recommend you try it.

  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 150 g of mushrooms
  • 2 large red onions
  • 200 g of matured gouda
  • 10 eggs
  • 60 ml of milk
  • mix of dried herbs (basil, thyme, rosemary, oregano)
  • salt and pepper
Method of preparation

I lined a tray with baking paper and added onions and sliced ​​mushrooms. I sprinkled them with olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper and put them at 180 degrees. The mushrooms should stay in the oven until they evaporate from the water and fry lightly (about 20-25 minutes), and the onion until it caramelizes and becomes slightly crispy (about 30-35 minutes). Don't be scared if it has a dark color and looks burnt because it is super sweet and tasty.

I greased a 22 cm round bowl with a little olive oil and put the baked mushrooms on the bottom of the bowl. Then I sprinkled 50 grams of grated Gouda on the large grater, added the caramelized onion and added another 50 grams of Gouda over the onion layer.

I beat the 10 eggs and added the milk and spices. I added them to the baking dish, over the layers with Gouda and onion and finished with the rest of the cheese. I put the dish in the oven at 180 ° C for about 20-25 minutes, depending on how you prefer the frittata, softer or crispier because the last layer of Gouda will turn into a crust.

A fresh salad goes next to it, depending on your preferences. I chose a simple one made of valerian and chery tomatoes. Enjoy your meal!

Ingredients Chickpea Chickpeas with Tomato Sauce Flavored:

chickpea meatballs:

  • 460 grams of boiled chickpeas, well drained of water (more precisely, grains from two cans of chickpeas)
  • 45 grams of onion
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1-2 tablespoons chopped sunflower seeds (will absorb moisture)
  • 4 tablespoons chickpea flour or, failing that, wheat flour (if you get a too wet composition you can add a little more flour)
  • 1 teaspoon grated cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil for sprinkling (if you choose to bake meatballs) or plenty of vegetable oil for frying
  • 3 tablespoons flour

fragrant tomato sauce:

  • 45 grams of onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 300 ml. of concentrated tomato broth or 1/2 can of tomatoes in broth + 1 small cup of hot water
  • 2-3 sprigs of thyme
  • 2-3 strands of basil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar, pepper

Preparation of Chicken Meatballs with Aromatic Tomato Sauce:

1. Drain the chickpeas from the liquid.

2. Crush the chickpeas according to how fine you like it. I also preferred to leave whole grains, for a more interesting texture. I tested the hand blender Philips Avance Speed ​​Touch at this point and I have to confess that he did great.

3. The same reliable help from Philips took care of the onion and garlic, which I chopped quickly.

4. Add chopped onion and garlic, flour, chopped greens, sunflower seeds (which I chopped a little before), cumin, salt and pepper to taste. If the composition is wet, it is good to gradually add more flour (ideally to use chickpea flour, which you can find in health food stores) or breadcrumbs, until you get a semi-moist paste, easy to shape and which keeps very good shape.

5. Homogenize the composition well and form 12-20 meatballs. I formed 16 pieces, each about the size of a ping-pong ball.

6. Meatballs are rolled in flour and, from here on, two different approaches are possible:

  • place on a tray covered with baking paper, sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of oil on the entire surface and put in the preheated oven at 220 degrees Celsius, for 25 minutes
  • fry in plenty of oil until golden brown (3-4 minutes) then remove on absorbent paper towels.

The truth is that in the oven it takes a long time to catch the crust, but the wait is offset by the much smaller amount of oil.

7. For the sauce, cook the onion together with the garlic (both chopped) in a tablespoon of oil until soft, then add the tomatoes or broth and herbs. Boil on low heat for 5-6 minutes.

8. Throw the herbs infused in the sauce, pass the sauce with the blender and match the taste with salt, pepper and sugar.

Serve the meatballs with the flavored tomato sauce, sprinkled with greens to taste and a little freshly ground black pepper.

I wish you good work and good appetite and, if you want a worthy help in the kitchen, you can have your own Philips Avance Speed ​​Touch by answering the question launched in the contest from the link that opens by clicking on the picture below.

Cooking in a pressure cooker

About the benefits of cooking in a pressure cooker I told a lot here, as part of the bean stew recipe with smoked ciolan.

The pressure cooker was invented around 1679 by the famous French physicist Denis Papin and became popular in the 19th century (around 1860). Unfortunately, classic pressure cookers are heavy, massive, difficult to wash and require periodic changes of seals. In addition, they must be supervised throughout cooking, the flame under them must be adjusted, etc.

For over 5 months I have been intensively using a multicooker that also has this function: pressure cooking. The Alacarte 6IX multicooker from HEINNER also has the ability to cook under pressure, in addition to the functions of sautéing, boiling, steaming or slow cooking! That gives speed! Pressure cooking shortens cooking times by 2-3 times and is very useful for stronger meats (beef, country chicken, chicken, game, pork chop, pig's feet for colds or meatballs etc.) as well as dried legumes (beans for example).

It is very easy to use, has a modern, compact design, does not take up much storage space. The volume of the cooking vessel is 6 L (as big as a pot!), is non-stick and can be washed in the dishwasher. The device has 15 preset programs + one manual setting in which you choose your temperature, time + warm-up function. Brilliant! The cover is a rotating one that screws easily, has markings that indicate the closed / open positions as well as an acoustic signal that ensures that it is correctly positioned. In addition to the thermostat and the steam drain valve, there is also a safety valve that drains the extra steam while keeping the pressure in the cooking vessel constant. So don't be afraid! Everything is scientifically thought out and the use of this device is very safe. Just read and follow the instructions for use and the little guide with recipes (both brochures come bundled with the multicooker).

This Heinner Multocooker with pressure can be bought here or by hereor can be won at the contest which you find at the end of the recipe.
