These are both easy/peasy. The fudge sinfully so because it is something that should go on the eat very rarely list. Sigh.
Chocolate Pistachio Fudge
350g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids) chopped
1 x 400 g tin of condensed milk
30 g butter
pinch of salt (which I left out)
150 g unsalted pistachios or a combination pistachios/raisins. The smaller portion suggested that next time dried sour cherries would be good. He is right. I added a splash of rum to the nuts and the raisins
Put the chopped chocolate and the condensed milk and the butter in a saucepan and heat and stir slowly over a low heat until melted and well combined.
Bash the nuts ( a good stress reliever) until they are broken up a bit. Stir them and whatever else you fancy into the chocolate mix. I added a bit of cinnamon as I love it with chocolate.
Pour into a 23cm square tray, smoothing out the top a bit. Let it cool for a bit and then refrigerate until set.
Cut into smallish pieces and indulge.
Zucchini Crust Pizza
3 cups grated zucchinni (I found one smallish zucchini was about a cup).
1/3 cup plain flour (I used wholemeal)
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese (I used much less)
2 small tomatoes, halved and finely chopped.
1/2 cup chopped onion
Whatever else you fancy - I used mushrooms and fresh asparagus
oregano and basil to taste
3 tbsp grated parmesan
In a large bowl mix zucchinni and eggs. Stir in the flour - I added a little onion and garlic too. Spread onto a 30cm pizza pan coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 230C for eight minutes, then remove and apply topping.
Turn oven down to 180C. Bake for 15-20 mins until onion is tender and cheese melted.
I think next time I will give the crust a little longer at maybe 240C or so.
As I said the base was more like a zucchini frittata - but it tasted good.
