    3. After a few minutes remove the skin from the peppers and place the flesh and remaining sauce ingredients into a food processor or blender, process until smooth. Reserve until required.

    9. When all the lasagne is part cooked, divide the filling between the sheets, roll up each one to form a tube.
    10. Pour a thin layer of prepared sauce to cover the base of the ovenproof dish and arrange the cannelloni rolls on top. Pour the remaining sauce over the rolls and cover the dish with foil.
    11. Bake in a preheated oven for 25 minutes. Serve immediately sprinkled with fresh chopped parsley.

    Fate Winter Vegetable Stew with Dumplings

    October 26th, 2012
    Fate Winter Vegetable Stew WIth Dumplings

    Fate Winter Vegetable Stew WIth Dumplings

    A heart warming winter stew. Perfect as the nights start to draw in and the temperature starts to drop.

    The stew can be frozen & the dumplings freeze well but are best frozen uncooked. So just cook the amount you need for one meal and freeze the remainder.


    For the stew:

    • 200g Onions
    • 150g Carrots
    • 100g Parsnips or turnips
    • 100g Sweet potatoes
    • 100g Celery
    • 2 Tbsp oil
    • 1 Tbsp tomato puree
    • 1 Tin chopped tomatoes
    • 200mls Water
    • Salt & pepper
    • Few drops suitable gravy browning

    For the Dumplings:

    • 75 g Fate All-Purpose mix
    • 25 g block margarine
    • 35 mls water
    • Extra Fate All-Purpose mix to shape
    • Salt & pepper


    1. Chop the onions, carrots, parsnips or turnips, sweet potatoes and celery into even sized pieces. Heat the oil in a pan and gently heat. Cover the pan with a lid and leave to cook for 5-10 minutes until softened and lightly browned.
    2. Stir in the tomato purée, the tin of tomatoes and the water.
    3. Season with salt and pepper and add a few drops of gravy browning to give a rich colour.
    4. Bring to the boil and then turn down the heat. Leave to simmer gently for 20-30 minutes until the vegetables are cooked.
    5. Meanwhile make the dumplings: Place the Fate All Purpose Mix into a bowl and rub in the block margarine until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in salt and pepper and add the water.
    6. Using a metal spoon, mix well until the mixture is smooth. (It should be just like a soft pastry dough).
    7. Take about a teaspoon of mixture and using a little extra All-Purpose Mix on your hands, roll into a ball. Put the shaped dumpling on a plate while you shape the rest of the dumpling mixture.
    8. To Finish: Make sure your low protein stew is cooking and simmering well.
    9. Take the dumplings and gently place them on the top of the stew in the saucepan. Do not stir in. Put a lid on the pan and leave to cook for about 5 minutes.
    10. They will have risen and be light and fluffy. After this time, it is a good idea to take a dumpling out of the pan and cut it in half to test that it is cooked.

    Fruit Crumble Tarts

    October 16th, 2012
    Fruit Crumble Tarts -

    Fruit Crumble Tarts –

    Pastry bases, filled -with juicy fruit, and then a crumble topping gently flavoured with a hint of cinnamon.

    As these cakes are so easy and quick to make, I have devised this recipe to make 24 little cakes made in a patty tin.

    They store perfectly in the freezer, and are so useful to have hot or cold for puddings, packed lunches or for a snack with a cup of tea ~ the 24 little cakes will soon disappear!

    You can use any kind of fruit allowed in your diet. They are delicious made with apples, plums or any fresh soft fruit, but almost any canned or jar of fruit you have in the cupboard will be suitable. Our favourites are made with cherries, the kind that come in jars, or canned summer fruits in juice.

    First prepare the pastry:


    • 250g Fate All-Purpose Mix
    • 125g block margarine or butter
    • pinch salt
    • 30g caster sugar
    • 5Omls water


    1. Preheat the oven, Gas 6 200°C 400°F
    2. Place the Fate All-Purpose Mix into a mixing bowl, and stir in the salt. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs, the continue until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
    3. Measure the water into a separate dish, and stir in the sugar. Add this to the All-Purpose Mixture, and using a metal spoon, mix quickly until it is smooth and creamy. Do not worry if you think the mixture is very soft, just leave it to rest for a couple of minutes.
    4. Lightly dust the work surface with extra All-Purpose mix, and knead the pastry for a minute or so until smooth. Then roll it out to about ½ cm thick. Cut it out into rounds and place into a patty tin. There is no need to grease it.

    Then prepare the crumble topping and put it all together:


    • 250g Fate Low Protein Cake mix
    • 50g block margarine or butter
    • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


    1. Place the Fate cake mix into the bowl, and rub in the margarine or butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
    2. Stir in the cinnamon
    3. If you are using fresh fruit, prepare it and cut into small pieces, or leave small fruits whole. If you are using canned or jarred fruit, drain well.
    4. Place a little fruit in the base of each pastry case, then sprinkle on some crumble topping.
    5. Bake in pre~heated for about 20 mins till firm and browned. Remove from the oven and leave in the tin for a couple of mins before placing on a wire rack to cool.

    Delicious eaten hot or cold. They will keep well for a few days stored in an airtight container. Or they freeze well, just wrap individually in film and place into a suitable bag to store.

    Fate Raspberry Muffins

    October 4th, 2012
    PKU Recipes - Fate Raspberry Muffins

    PKU Recipes – Fate Raspberry Muffins

    It is best to use frozen raspberries in this recipe, and it is best if you break them up when they are frozen by lightly crushing them in a bag. Then just put them back into the freezer until they are needed.

    The muffins are easy to make and are ready for the oven in just a couple of minutes. This recipe is enough to make 12 large muffins, or about 36 mini muffins. Be sure to use soft light brown sugar in the recipe.


    • 300g Fate Low Protein All-Purpose Mix
    • 150g soft light brown sugar
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 120g soft margarine
    • 1 tsp vanilla essence
    • 240 mls water
    • 120g frozen raspberries


    1. Pre~heat the oven Gas 6, 200°C 400°F
    2. Weigh the raspberries, and place them into a plastic bag. Using your hand, or a large spoon, break them up so that they are in small pieces. Put them back into the freezer.
    3. Place the Fate All-Purpose Mix into a bowl. Add the soft brown sugar, and the baking powder. Stir well.
    4. Add the margarine, water and vanilla essence. Then using a wire whisk, beat for just one minute until smooth.
    5. Add the frozen raspberry pieces, and using a metal spoon, quickly stir them in until evenly distributed. Do not over mix, or you will have “bright pink” muffins as the juice comes out of the fruit.
    6. Place paper muffin cases into your tins, and divide the mixture evenly between them.
    7. Place in the pre~heated oven for 30-40 mins for large muffins, or about 20 mins for small ones. They should be risen and golden brown.
    8. Place on a wire rack to cool.

    Store for a couple of days in an airtight container, or place in the freezer.

    Fate Bread Sticks

    July 1st, 2012
    Fate Bread Sticks -

    Fate Bread Sticks –

    These bread sticks are so useful to have for a crunchy alternative to any other type of bread. They are also ideal to pack into a picnic or lunch box. They will keep for a few days in an airtight container, but they are best stored in the freezer, as they only take a couple of minutes to defrost. The method uses a piping bag and nozzle to shape the breadsticks. It is best to use a large nylon one available from cake decorating shops, and a plain nozzle just under an centimetre in diameter.


    • 250g Fate All-Purpose Mix
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1/2 sachet yeast (enclosed with the mix)
    • 15 mls oil
    • 200 mls very warm water


    1. Pre-heat oven Gas 4.175°C (350°F)
    2. Place the Fate All-Purpose Mix into a bowl, and stir in the salt and the yeast. Put the measured oil and water into a separate jug. Have ready an electric hand mixer and pour the oil and water all at once onto the dry ingredients. Immediately start mixing to get everything blended together. Then mix on slow speed for about 30 seconds until smooth and thick.
    3. Place a nozzle into the base of the piping bag, and place the bread stick mixture inside the bag. Twist the top of the bag tightly against the mixture.
    4. Lightly grease a baking tray, and pipe lines of mixture leaving a small space in between each one. When the tray is full, dip a knife into water, and neaten the ends if necessary. Place the tray into a large polythene bag, and put into a warm place to prove. Leave until risen about half the size again.
    5. Place into a pre-heated oven, till risen, brown, and crisp. This may take anything from 20 mins to 40 mins.


    The cooking time may vary greatly for different ovens. The first time you make them, check them every five minutes. They need to cook steadily, so that they turn lightly brown, and also become crisp. It is best that they do not brown too quickly.
