Salt & pepper to taste 3 tbs fresh coriander chopped to garnish 2 tbs fresh mint leaves chopped to garnish Heat milk for 20 mins/90 degrees/speed 2. Add the vinegar & stir for 1 min/speed 2. Place a nut milk bag into the simmering basket into a clean sink or container and pour in the contents of the TM bowl to drain the curds from the whey.

We made this recipe at the Taste Theatre to show making fresh pesto to use in a chickpea & cheese scroll recipe – featuring Tasmanian cheeses.
Pumpkin, Pesto, Chickpea & Cheese Scrolls
150 g parmesan cheese, cubed 1 large garlic clove 1 bunch fresh basil 100 g extra virgin olive oil 60 g pine nuts, you may like to lightly toast before hand Salt & pepper, to taste 100 grams chickpea four (you can make your own in the TM) 100 grams butternut pumpkin, roughly chopped 400 grams bakers’ flour 20 grams extra virgin olive oil 1 tsp salt 220 grams lukewarm water 20 grams pepita (pumpkin) seeds 1 yeast sachet, (about 7g) 100g feta cheese 100g cheddar cheese cubed Make the pesto first by putting parmesan cheese into TM bowl & process 5 secs on speed 10. Set aside & weigh 50g of parmesan cheese back into the TM bowl. Add garlic, basil, 100g olive oil, pine nuts, salt & pepper & chop for 10 secs speed 10. Scrape pesto out of the bowl & place into a container. Without cleaning the bowl, add the pumpkin & chop for 5 secs speed 7. Add the chickpea flour, warm water, yeast, bakers flour, salt, pepita seeds, 20g olive oil & mix for 5 secs speed 6. Set time for 1.5 mins on interval setting to knead the dough - you may need to add extra flour if your mix is too sticky. Remove the dough & allow to rest for about ½ hour. Without cleaning the bowl, put the cheddar & fetta cheese into the bowl & chop for 3 secs speed 5. Place the dough onto a work surface sprinkled with flour & roll out into a large rectangle. Spread some of the pesto onto the dough, sprinkle with the 3 cheeses. Then roll into a long scroll shape & cut into 12 scrolls. Place onto tray lined with baking paper allow to prove for ½ hour & bake for 20 - 25 mins at 200 degrees or until brown.

We are making rotis to serve with
fresh paneer as part of a vegetarian curry & served with apricot chutney.
320 g flour 20 g oil (grape seed) ¼ tsp salt (to taste) 250 g boiling Water Place all ingredients into TM bowl in the order listed. Knead for 2 minutes on interval setting, dough will look a little like playdough. Place mixture onto lightly floured surface and hand knead and break into 12-14 small balls of dough. Using lots of flour roll each roti very thinly into circles and then dry fry in a crepe pan. Once one side is brown turn over and fry the other side. Pile up cooked rotis on a plate until ready to serve. This recipe can be doubled for crowds and rotis freeze really well and make a great substitute for wraps.
