Slow Cooked Tamari Chicken Drumsticks
Slow Cooked Tamari Chicken Drumsticks For a family of three or four, this recipe, will provide you with two additional meals and a good batch of stock to use for umpteen other meals again, with the addition of a few basic extras each time. If you have a big family, invest in a big stock pot from a chef ’s supply store and double the batch. 12 chicken legs 1 cup stock (chicken or vegetable. if you don’t have stock, just do extra water, and chuck an extra ½ onion in and break a carrot in to and pop that in too) 1 cup water 1 inch knob ginger, cut in two and thrown in 2-3 garlic cloves 1 x 2cm piece turmeric (optional) 1 medium sized purple onion, roughly chopped 4 tablespoons tamari (wheat free soy) 3 tablespoons rice syrup (maple or honey if you prefer) 50g butter or coconut oil Pre heat your oven to 140°C. Sauté the drumsticks for a couple of minutes in two batches, with the butter and onion on stove on a high heat. Just pop the six you’ve done in a bowl while you do the other half and then add them back in. Add all remaining liquids and spices. Pop the lid on, transfer to oven 3-4 hours.
Coconut Cupcakes These coconut cupcakes are grain, gluten, fructose, nut and dairy free. And they’re delicious. Best of all you don’t need to even break out the whisk or mixer. This is the perfect recipe for whenever there are food sensitivities or allergies of varying kinds at your next get together. This recipe makes 10 large cupcakes. Dry ingredients (in one bowl) 120g buckwheat flour 40g coconut flour (for full grain-free, take out the buckwheat flour and use 80g coconut flour and increase to two eggs) 1 teaspoon aluminium free baking powder 2 /3 teaspoon bi carb soda 1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder (if you don’t have, just do two teaspoons vanilla bean extract in the wet ingredient bowl) 40g desiccated coconut
Pull out of the oven and back onto the stove and add a bunch of chopped Chinese broccoli, and 300g green beans or ½ head of broccoli, chopped. Pop lid back on for five minutes to cook the vegetables in the steam and liquid of the chicken dish and then spoon onto plates to serve, two drumsticks and green vegetables. If you like you can cook some quinoa or brown rice to serve with it also.
Wet ingredients (in a second bowl) Place 1 egg, broken up with a fork first in the bowl (if you have egg allergy to cater for, you can replace the egg with 50ml extra of coconut milk. It will be a little less stable in texture if you wanted to make a cake, but still perfect for cupcakes). Add 160ml rice syrup (I feel better personally with low/no fructose baking when possible given that the liver can process about two pieces of fruit’s worth a day… if you don’t subscribe to that choice feel free to use honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar, coconut syrup or rapidura as unrefined natural sweetening options. You could also use stevia glycerate or erythritol if needs be, although I find them to taste very chemically). Add 120ml coconut milk (there is a little fructose in coconut milk. If super sensitive/fructose malabsorption issues, replace with nut milk or whole milk). Add 90ml melted butter (you could use ghee or coconut oil for extra dairy sensitivity). Pop the oven on 180°C non-fan forced setting. Once you’ve got everything in your wet and dry bowls, just give them each a little stir through. Combine the bowls together and stir through until just combined. Leave for a minute to firm up. Pour into your cupcake cups, leaving 1cm off the top for rising. Bake for 20-25 minutes, doing a skewer test at 20 minutes to check. When the skewer comes out clean, you’re done. For a thermomix: Pop everything (make sure butter is cooled so it doesn’t cook the egg) into the thermomix and blend on Speed 6 for 5 seconds. Reverse Speed 5 for 3 seconds. Done.
