250 g sweet potato, peeled, and diced in small cubes
500 g water
25 g coconut oil
250 g chicken livers
½ cup oatmeal
300 g whole wheat flour, use stone ground for preservative-free
1 tsp baking powder, use 2 tsp gluten-free BP if preferred
- Preheat oven to 150°C. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
- Place sweet potato in simmering basket and water into mixing bowl. Insert simmering basket and steam sweet potato 15 min/Varoma/speed 1. Remove simmering basket, empty water out of mixing bowl and place cooked sweet potato into mixing bowl.
- Add coconut oil and chicken livers. Cook 10 min/100°C/speed 2 or until chicken livers are cooked. You’ll find that the livers and sweet potato are beautifully combined and the correct consistency. Using the spatula, ensure all livers and potato’s are combined.
- Add remaining ingredients. Mix 10 sec/speed 5. Scrape down sides of bowl and repeat.
- Should the mixture still be warm, place dough in a bowl and cover until cool.
- Using flour, or between two sheets of plastic wrap, roll the dough to about ½ cm thick. It may be very sticky, and if too sticky to work with, add a little more flour and knead lightly into the dough. Cut into shapes or cut the dough into squares.
- Bake 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
An explanation of the costing process in the recipes. We have taken into account the electricity on a prepaid metre, but not packaging which slightly skews the costing but, in a society which is trying to eliminate plastic and wastage, it is another advantage making our own. We store in re-usable containers. We mostly cannot buy something without the added packaging and this is totally wasteful. Another added bonus of the Thermomix…not needing to support industry in the horrendous use of plastics.
