two courses from karenleigh...

Fast Leftover Roast Chicken & 3 Veg Meal

Leftover roast chicken, skin and bones removed Whatever veg you like but I used:
2 peeled potatoes, cut into 1cm thick chips
2 carrots cut into 1cm thick rings
2 big handfuls of green beans

Place potatoes into basket in TM31. Add 600gm boiling water.
Cook 3mins, Varoma @ speed 4.
Place carrots on bottom level of Varoma. Place chicken (I broke it up a bit) and beans into top layer.
When timer goes off, add Varoma and cook for 8 mins, Varoma @ speed 4.
Remove potatoes and mash your favourite way (I prefer to mash them manually with my trusty potato masher).
Voila - meat & 3 vege in under 15 minutes.

Strawberry Sorbet - I know it's pretty straightforward but I had trouble getting the fruit/sugar/ice ratio right.
I still can't bring myself to put raw egg into sorbets.

270gm strawberries (freezing 1/3 of fruit results in better texture if not using egg white) 85gm white sugar 350gm ice Process in the usual way.
