We had a taster day and someone brought in a lovely dip made with quark and a chilli tomato relish. It worked out quite low in syns for the whole thing. It was really nice with veg sticks. She said you could make it with any relish really. I'd leave it a wee while in the fridge to let the flavours mingle.
Hello pate fans! For chicken liver pate you need:
1 pack of frozen chicken livers (defrosted, duh)
3 bacon medallions, chopped
2 small onions, red or white or one medium onion
2 cloves of garlic
mixed herbs, salt and pepper to taste
Half a pot of QUARK
Fry your onions in fry light til softened
Add crushed garlic and chopped bacon and fry together.
Take out and set aside
Add chicken livers to the pan with some fry light and cook til done all the way through
Add the bacon and oniony garlicy mix and cook together until well mixed.
Add your herbs and mix well.
Put entire mix into a food processor, add half a tub of Quark and blitz until smooth. Taste, say "Oh my God, Vicky is a genius", and add your seasoning if required. Blitz again.
Put in tub to cool and when cooled, refrigerate. The mixture will regain it's Quark-like consistency when cold.
Smugly spread on HEb of wholewheat crackerbread, 2 slices of Nimble granary toast, or dip crudites of cucumber, celery and carrot and enjoy! xx
I dont like quark unless its disguised well!! The best thing i use it in is for a cheesecake. I make individual ones:
I just use a dessert spoon and use 1 spoon of quark, 1 of extra light philidelphia and a muller light youhurs with chocolate sprinkles. then mix it all up, crush a light digestive and put in a bowl then put the mixture on top. Tastes just like cheesecake when left to chill for 20 mins or so. Adjustthe levels of quark Phili to your taste.. I like it as a treat for pudding, think its only the digestive 4 Syns and the extra light phili is a HE
