  • 4 teaspoon Gelatine powder

Recipe's preparation

    Tomato consomme

    Place all ingredients into TM bowl and puree speed 9 for 30 seconds.

    Strain through cheese cloth or a coffee filter or clean tea towel for

    around 9 hours.  Do not squeeze or try to push contents through or

    it will be coloured and cloudy.


    Can be served as a canapé shot, as an interesting change in a bloody

    mary cocktail, in vodka cocktails or as a cold soup garnished with

    whatever your imagination can bring.  eg confit cherry tomatoes,

    smoked heirloom tomatoes, green tomato purple basil and buffalo

    mozzarella ‘salad’.


    Also delicious served unstrained as a summer gazpacho.  Can even

    be frozen and whipped into a savoury sorbet.

  2. Basil Jelly

    Place water, sugar and salt into TM bowl and set for 100deg, speed 2,

    5 minutes, or until it comes to a full boil.


    Add washed basil leaves and blend speed 9, 30 seconds.


    Strain and then add gelatine and stir until fully combined.


    Strain again through a fine sieve and pour into a large flat tin or tray,

    lined with cling film. (If you spray the tray with oil the cling film will

    stick better)

    Allow to set in the fridge and when firm lift out cling

    film and you can cut into squares or shape as desired.


    Great served as an interesting garnish to salad caprese (tomato,

    mozzarella, basil salad), little squares on canapés, or in any

    dish as a substitute for basil, if looking for something different.

     You can even serve garnishing a hot soup at the last minute and

    it will gently melt creating a bit of a feature and a delicious flavour



    NB: keep your strained out basil and make into a

    pesto, or add to pasta dough or bread dough for

    colour and flavour.

  5. Parmesan Cream

    Grate parmesan on speed 9 for 10 seconds.

    Scrape down and weigh in milk and add gelatine and pepper,

    ensuring you don’t get it on the exposed blades or it

    wont melt, and cook for 4 minutes, 70 degrees, speed 3.


    Strain and cool to room temp then stir in cream.


    Set in fridge and stir well before using. (you can put back

    into TM and mix on speed 2 for 10-25 seconds.)



    Can be served floating on top of a cold soup, or served

    swirled through the top of a hot soup like potato and

    leek or creamed onion.


    Will work well with other strong hard cheeses

    like romano, also blue cheese or a strong feta

    such as Persian feta.



You can spoon the cream on top to make a flat layer, but I was serving 50 at

the time so I put the cream in a piping bag to make it quicker.

Needs to be served immediately after putting together as the cream

will eventually make the consomme cloudy.

I served 4 little 1/2cm cubes of jelly in the bottom of the glass,

around 40ml of consomme, and topped with the parmesan cream.

    I used fresh mozzarella instead of the parmesan cream. My family absolutely loved this. Lots of compliments!
