Stephanie baking Scrolls

This is Stephanie cooking the scrolls from my book, The Real Food for Kids cookbook, we did use the thermomix to  mix the dough but she measured all the ingredients into the bowl.

This is the ‘warm spot’ steph picked for the dough to rise! she cracks me up!

 

bread rising (1 of 1)

for soft bread you can leave the dough to rise a few times, knocking back in between rises, and use warm water (not hot it will kill the yeast)

Stephanie has rolled the dough out into a large square (kind of??!) and spreads butter over 2/3rds

Yummy lunch of freshly baked scrolls. The rising time takes a while, but if I am home anyway for the day, they really do not take much time to make. Having the scrolls wrapped and frozen to pull out to defrost for a busy morning actually makes packing the lunches in the mornings a lot easier!!

There are heaps of different filling ideas your kids will enjoy creating their own, pizza scrolls are always a hit!

Beetroot dip

If you are a fan of the beetroot dip from the shop you will love this, I have been practising for years and this is by far my favourite!

3 medium (400 grams) beetroot
3 cloves garlic
1 onion
olive oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
teaspoon basil
teaspoon oregano
250 grams cream cheese

peel and dice the beetroot into about 2 cm pieces and roast in a baking tray with a little olive oil the peeled garlic and the onion peeled and diced into 2cm pieces. Roast for about 20 minutes or until the beetroot is soft  add the brown sugar sprinkled over the beetroot, onion and garlic for the last few minutes of baking to caramelise. Leave to cool.

Blend well with the cream cheese and herbs until smooth season with the salt and pepper
