Slow Cooker Pork, Shallot, Red Pepper Goulash. Hello friends, fancy making this tasty recipe up for dinner?

Slow Cooker Pork, Shallot, Red Pepper Goulash- A comforting and hearty Hungarian-inspired slow-cooked stew. You can substitute the pork for braising steak if you prefer. It might seem a lot of paprika but it has a mild flavour and gives the stew a really gorgeous brick red colour.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 8-9 hours

What To Do:
  1. Set a large pan over a high heat on the hob. Add the olive oil and brown the pork in batches, transferring to a plate as you go.
  2. Once the meat has all browned, return it all back into the pan, along with any juices from the plate. 
  3. Add the shallots and peppers and fry together for couple more minutes. Add the garlic, paprika, caraway, tomatoes and water and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. 
  4. Bring up to a simmer then transfer to the slow cooker and leave to cook on high for about 8-9 hours or until the meat is really tender. 
  5. Alternatively, cover with a tight-fitting lid and slide into an oven set to 100°C (fan temperature) for the same amount of time.
  6. When cooked divide between bowls and add a dollop of the sour cream on top.
  7. Serve with crusty bread, plain steamed rice or even pasta.

Socca Pizza With Prosciutto, Broccoli And Mozzarella Balls

Socca Pizza With Prosciutto, Broccoli And Mozzarella Balls

Socca Pizza With Prosciutto, Broccoli And Mozzarella Balls. Happy Saturday friends, fancy making this tasty recipe up??

For Love Your Gut Week (17th-23rd September), nutritionist and cook Dr Joan Ransley has created four delicious gut healthy recipes so you can re-set your gut health for the rest of the year and beyond.

Socca:

Socca is a gluten free Italian pancake dish made with chickpea flour. Chickpea flour contains plenty of dietary fibre and galacto-oligosaccharides that provide food for beneficial microorganisms in the gut to feed on. 

Broccoli:

Broccoli contains polyphenols. Polyphenols are thought to stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria and inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria. This can help to keep the lining of the gut wall healthy. 

Eating a diverse range of plant based foods promotes a varied range of beneficial gut bacteria which helps to keep the gut healthy.

How To Make Socca Pizza With Prosciutto, Broccoli And Mozzarella Balls:

Serves 4

Preparation and cooking time 20 minutes

Ingredients:

For The Socca Pizza Bases:
  • 150g chickpea (gram) flour
  • 50g grana Padano cheese, finely grated
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 70ml olive oil
  • 375ml cold water

For The Topping:
  • 3 red onions, peeled and quartered
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 200g tender stem broccoli
  • 80g prosciutto
  • 16 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 125g mozzarella pearls
  • small handful basil leaves
Socca Pizza With Prosciutto, Broccoli And Mozzarella Balls

Socca Pizza With Prosciutto, Broccoli And Mozzarella Balls Method:

1. To make the bases. Put the chickpea flour, grated cheese and salt in a large bowl and slowly whisk in the olive oil and enough of the water to form a thick pouring batter. Leave to rest for half an hour.

2. For the caramelised onion, put the onion, a drizzle of oil, sugar and salt in a large pan and cook over a medium heat for 7 minutes or until the onions are soft and beginning to brown. Remove from the heat and stir in the crushed garlic. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

3. To cook the socca pizzas. Heat a drizzle of oil in the frying pan and pour in enough batter to cover a 20cm (8 inch) non-stick frying pan. Fry gently on a medium heat for 5 minutes and then flip over and cook for five minute more. Transfer the socca pizza to a baking sheet and repeat with the remaining batter to make four bases.

4. Turn the oven on to 180oC/Gas mark 4.

5. Meanwhile cook the broccoli in a pan of boiling water for 3 minutes and drain. It will still be a firm.

6. To assemble the pizzas. Dollop each base with caramelised onions, broccoli, prosciutto, cherry tomatoes and mozzarella pearls. Place in the hot oven for 5-10 minutes until the cheese is melted. Serve sprinkled with torn basil leaves.

Cooks Tip: The batter can be made by placing all the ingredients in the goblet of a liquidiser and processing for 30 seconds. This creates a smooth easy to pour batter.

Variation: The bases can be topped with spinach and ricotta, or mushrooms and slices of butternut squash.

How To Make BerryWorld Fruity Meringues:

Serves: 8

Preparation time: 15 minutes plus cooling time
Cooking time: 1 ¼ hours

What You Need: 
  • 4 egg whites 
  • 200g caster sugar 
  • 1 tsp cornflour

  • Your choice of berries to top

What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 100C and line 2 baking sheets with non-stick parchment.
  2. In a sparkling clean bowl with very clean whisks, whisk the egg whites until stiff then slowly add the caster sugar whilst whisking. Continue whisking until the mixture becomes stiff and shiny. Add the cornflour and whisk briefly to incorporate.
  3. Spoon 4 pillows of meringue, well-spaced, onto each baking sheet. Make a slight indent in the top of each. Turn the oven down to 80C and cook for 1 ½ hours then turn off the oven and leave to go cold.
  4. When ready to serve, whip the cream to soft peaks and spoon into the indent of each meringue. Top with your choice of berries and serve.

Note: If using less sweet berries, such as blackcurrants or gooseberries, you can choose to make them into a quick compote. Heat the berries in a pan with a few spoons of sugar and a dash of water. Taste and add more sugar to suit your taste and tartness of the berries.
