Beetroot Pudding

6ozs Wheatmeal Flour Flavouring Essence
1½ ozs Fat ½ teaspoon Baking Powder
4 ozs Beetroot (cooked or raw) 1oz Sugar
3 or 4 tablespoons Milk

Procedure for making:

First mix the flour with the baking powder.
Rub in the fat and add the sugar.
Beetroot can be either cooked or raw, but must be finely grated.
Mix all ingredients to a soft cake consistency and add milk.
Few drops of flavouring helps, but is not necessary.
Turn the mixture into a greased pie dish or square tin.
Place immediately in a moderate oven, bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
NOTE: Sufficient for four persons, this pudding tastes equally good hot or cold.

Remarks: This is a useful recipe for beetroot to make a nice sweet pudding with very little sugar. Wishes for the book’s success. See link.

Recipe: Fried Tofu Fritters
cook books
Image by Smaku
A different kind of finger food, this takes your yummy tofu and turns it into a yummy fritter. It’s like magic!

This recipe was taken from a Japanese cooking book.

Ingredients
600g medium (firmness) tofu
200g tuna (or split evenly with tuna and salmon)
1 large egg
1 cube of chicken stock, chopped finely
sprinkle of nutmeg
5 tablespoon of flour

Recipe

1) For this recipe, I split my ingredients evenly with 100g of tuna [1] and 100g of salmon [2], both canned.

2) I used medium firm tofu and boiled it for just about 3-5 minutes until heated throughout [4].

3) Mix the egg beforehand and pour on the tuna [6] in a large bowl. Chop the chicken stock cube and sprinkle on top. Sprinkle to taste some nutmeg [8].

4) Mix everything in the bowl using your hands, breaking apart the large pieces of tofu [9], making sure everything has been mixed equally.

5) Genly sift the flower on top of your mixture so that it gets mixed into the tofu mixture [10].

6) Mix by hand again [11]. Take a small handful from the bowl, and without patting it firmly into any shape, put it in the deep fryer (or wok with boiling oil) [12]. The key here is to have the oil really hot. Fry the fritters for about 30-45 seconds or until it gets to be a nice, golden brown colour on the outside. Take out of oil and cool. Repeat until you have used all the mixture.

7) Serve the fritters with some mustard and ketchup on the side. Dip the fritters in them as you eat them.

Finished fritters should look something like this.

Even when there’s no food involved, this guy has realized that sitting on open books is a good way to get attention. Also my mom’s goat when she’s in the middle of grading student workbooks.
