Gluten-Free Almond and Raspberry Tart

To begin baking your gluten-free almond and raspberry tart, preheat the Oven 200°C CircoTherm®. In a food processor combine the sifted dry ingredients with the ground almonds and butter. Pulse until the mixture resemble fine bread crumbs. Whisk together the eggs and sugar then add the processor and pulse until the pastry forms a ball.   Turn the pastry out onto a lightly floured surface (GF) and knead lightly until smooth then form into a ball. Place onto a piece of baking paper then press out to approx 20 cm. Chill for 30 minutes.  Roll the pastry between 2 pieces of baking paper to line a 25cm fluted tart pan with removable base. Trim the edges and prick the base well with a fork, chill a further 30 minutes. Load the pastry with a sheet of baking paper and some rice or beans to weight it.   Blind bake the pastry for 12 minutes, remove the paper and rice and bake a further 6 minutes until lightly golden. Cool. Reduce the oven temp to 160°C.  Arrange half the raspberries over the tart base. In a bowl combine the sour cream, eggs, sugar, butter, flour, rind and juice and whisk until combined. Pour the filling over the berries and drop the extra berries over the top. Bake for 30 minutes or until the filling is set. Allow to cool.  Dust the gluten-free almond and raspberry tart with icing sugar, slice and serve with a dollop of pure cream and extra raspberries.  

Gluten-free Dipped Shortbread

Line two baking sheets with baking paper. Beat the butter, then cream it with the sugar and orange zest until light. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt and mix together to form a dough. Roll the mixture into a ‘sausage’ shape, wrap in cling film then chill for 15 mins. Meanwhile, heat the oven to CircoTherm, 170C. Cut the shortbread roll into 1cm slices (you should get around 15), then bake for 12-15 mins until light golden. Leave on the baking sheet for 2 mins before releasing with a palette knife. Slide onto a rack to cool. Meanwhile, place the chocolate into a small saucepan and heat on the induction cooktop at setting 2 or gas cooktop FlameSelect level 2, stirring regularly until melted. Turn down to setting 1 to keep warm until ready to use. When the cookies have cooled, half dip them into the melted chocolate and place on a piece of baking parchment. Sprinkle the chopped hazelnuts and orange zest on top of the melted chocolate, repeat with the remaining cookies. Allow the chocolate to set before serving.

The Perfect Oven for a Sunday Roast

What is CircoTherm®? One of the key stresses that a Sunday roast can inspire in the home chef, is the stress of time. Roasts aren’t always quick, and preparing a succulent, multi-course feast is going to be cause for a little bit of a wait. NEFF CircoTherm® technology is a revolution for roasts. It allows simultaneous baking, cooking and roasting on multiple levels without the intermingling of flavours, and offers precision temperature control. So there’s no waiting for one dish to be done before beginning another, a potentially huge time saving for a long-awaited Sunday roast. CircoTherm® is also perfect because it ensures all trays are cooked evenly. Yorkshire puddings on top, veggies in the middle and meat on the bottom? That’s no worries. Everything will cook to perfectly, no rotating of trays needed! Below are some Sunday roast recipes to inspire your next cook up: Roast 1: Roast Beef Roast beef with mustard potatoes and jus and pumpkin and black bean salad, with Gluten Free Almond and Raspberry Tart. Roast beef is the classic roast option, and this recipe is no exception. Although we have expanded the palette with the a little kick in the form of mustard potatoes. Paired with a slightly heavier (yet still very healthy) pumpkin and black bean salad, this is a classic roast is a modern twist on a family favourite. With everything cooked at 200°C, dinner couldn’t be more simple – you can even blind bake your Gluten-free Almond and Raspberry Tart base ready for dessert! Roast 2: Lamb Roast Indian Spiced Roast Lamb and Vegetable fries with a decadent Lemon Blueberry Tart for dessert As diets change, so must our roasts. This Indian spiced lamb is the perfect twist your Sunday routine is craving. To take your tastebuds on a global trip, we’ve paired them with vegetable fries seasoned with coriander, chilli powder and ground hazelnuts. To finish the night off with a bit of freshness, why not try our favourite Lemon Blueberry Tart? And of course, all courses of this delicious meal can be cooked simultaneously at 180°C. Innovation and imagination are at the core of what make NEFF CircoTherm® ovens perfect companions for our Sunday roast creations, taking the time and stress out of cooking and leaving more time for sharing food and enjoying Sunday roasts as household events to be treasured. Roast 3: Beef Brisket Slow Cooked Beef Brisket, Caramelised carrots and pine nuts and Chocolate Roulade with fresh cream and raspberries The ultimate recipe for stress-free entertaining, Slow Cooked Beef Brisket is a crowd favourite. After slow cooking for 12 hours to produce a tender, fall-apart meat, when you reheat with the CircoTherm® function to caramelise the meat, you can simultaneously toast the pine nuts for your caramelised carrots side dish and start baking your Chocolate Roulade for dessert! The fresh cream and raspberries with this dessert are a perfect complement to the succulent roast, and with CircoTherm®, heating occurs evenly, ensuring all dishes come out evenly cooked golden. ___________________________________________________ About NEFF NEFF is a German-engineered kitchen appliance brand, with a product range that includes ovens, cooktops, rangehoods, coffee machines and dishwashers designed to make life in the kitchen a daily pleasure. For people who love to cook, NEFF gives you the tools to create meaningful connections, express your creativity and make memories.

How to make homemade pasta

From a hearty serving of fluffy gnocchi to a forkful of twirled linguini, nothing beats a bowl of pasta - even better when it’s made with love. So, we’ve collected our favourite homemade pasta and sauce recipes from around the NEFF kitchen to bring a little bit of Italy into your own kitchen. Why homemade? When it’s so easy to buy pasta from the supermarket, making your own can feel like a daunting task. But homemade pasta is easier than you imagine, and has a texture and flavour unrivalled by the bulk supermarket stock. Plus, there’s nothing like a homemade sauce to round out a family meal. What ingredients do I need to make pasta? This depends on what kind of pasta you’re making. From lasagne to spaghetti, most traditional homemade pasta recipes use flour and eggs, sometimes with additional salt, but you can also find egg-free, gluten-free and rice flour pastas, so keep looking. It’s imperative to use fresh eggs, and most recipes call for quality flour types like “00” or semolina. Here are some hot tips to nail your recipes: Know when to fold Kneading is a key part of pasta making. The perfect dough has been folded, and re-folded, until the eggs and flour are seamlessly combined. Olive oil is your friend Is your dough too dry? Add a few drops of olive oil. Don’t use water or more eggs, as this will mess with the consistency. Too sticky? Use a bit of extra flour. Let it rest To give your pasta the best chance at success, wrap it and give it time to rest for at least an hour - overnight if possible. This makes it easier to roll your dough out and cut it into your desired shape. Now, choose your recipe and get started. Make gnocchi from scratch (the Italian way) Soften your potatoes, measure out your flour and grind your salt - it’s time to serve up a bowl of NEFF’s delightful gnocchi dumplings, cooked to perfection in your Fullsteam oven. With only three ingredients, this potato pasta is one of the easiest ways to attempt to make pasta at home. When the small pieces of fluffy comfort have risen to the surface, top them with a roasted tomato sauce. Ricotta gnocchi with pumpkin and blue cheese sauce Ready to step it up a notch? This creamy ricotta gnocchi is just as easy to whip up with all the ingredients in one bowl. The sauce is a delicate, cheesy concoction laced with fresh basil and sautéed vegetables, sure to become a family favourite for the adults around the table. Make your own pumpkin pasta This fresh, colourful take on homemade pasta is the perfect way to make your pasta a little more exciting (and healthy). Kids will love the orange hue, and your palate will love the simple, striking flavours. By adding ½ cup of pumpkin puree to your salt, eggs and flour, you’ve got a winning comfort recipe on your hands. Or step it up a notch with our garlic and feta-stuffed Pumpkin Ravioli recipe. The perfect tomato and basil pasta sauce Best served atop an al dente bowl of fresh linguini, this heirloom tomato sauce recipe has fast become a staple in the NEFF recipe book. Fill your induction cooktop with the scent of Italy and whip up this seasonal mix of ripe tomatoes, chili, garlic, basil, olive oil and white wine in under 20 minutes. Try this walnut-sage butter When it comes to pasta, less is often more - especially if you’re short on time. This quick and creamy mix of roasted walnuts, fresh sage leaves and melted butter can help bring your homemade pasta to life. We can highly recommend this sauce on a bowl of beetroot gnocchi.  ___________________________________________________  About NEFF   NEFF is a German-engineered kitchen appliance brand, with a product range that includes ovens, cooktops, rangehoods, coffee machines and dishwashers designed to make life in the kitchen a daily pleasure. For people who love to cook, NEFF gives you the tools to create meaningful connections, express your creativity and make memories.

The perfect salad ingredient Roasted cauliflower makes a great addition to a salad, especially in autumn and winter where a plate of leafy greens may not feel so inviting. This pumpkin, quinoa and pomegranate salad incorporates roasted cauliflower florets for a nutty, warming addition. Soup up your soups Add steamed cauliflower to your warm winter soups and blend fully to give them a light yet creamy consistency. The soft and creamy nature of the cauliflower will help bulk up your recipe with creamy textures and loads of nutrients - without ruining the flavour profile of your original recipe. Try adding half a cauliflower head to the NEFF pumpkin soup recipe. Cauliflower mac and cheese There’s nothing like a hearty comfort meal on a cold winter’s evening. But we can’t quite live on mac and cheese alone until the spring comes… Give your family favourites an indulgent, nutrient-rich makeover by replacing the pasta element with seasoned cauliflower. You can even go half pasta and half cauliflower to sneak those veggies in - great for fussy eaters who don’t like vegetables. Have you tried making cauliflower pizza bases? Gluten-free home cooks around the world will know this trick well - replace your flour with chopped cauliflower and you can make a delicious pizza base that pairs perfectly with a selection of toppings and cheeses. And it’s super simple to make - simply combine cauliflower with eggs, cheese and seasoning in a food processor for a melt-in-your-mouth crust.
