Hello dear reader,
You may remember in my Doctor Who biscuit post on Tuesday, eleven doctors, eleven biscuits, that the biscuit I posted for the 4th Doctor (that’s the one who looks like the actor Tom Baker) was his hat. I also mentioned that his iconic long stripy scarf would feature in a later post. Well, here it is – a vegetarian option for your Doctor Who party…
Here’s the 4th Doctor wearing his scarf…
I am really pleased with how my vegetarian interpretation of it turned out. It is made from all natural ingredients, with no colouring added! This is what is in each colour…
Purple = Beetroot & roasted red onion (pressed overnight)
Red = Roasted red pepper and tomato (pressed overnight)
Cream = Baked mousse of cauliflower, spring onion bulbs, cream cheese and lemon
Green = Baked mousse of broccoli, courgettes, spring onion leaves, cream cheese and coriander
Orange = Baked mousse of carrot, roasted yellow & orange pepper, cream cheese and turmeric
Grey = Baked mousse of mushroom, shallot and port
Here’s some close-ups of the sections…
To construct the scarf, I actually took a shelf out of my fridge, covered it in greaseproof paper and laid the scarf out directly on it. Then I slid it straight back in the fridge – easy. It can go straight to the table, with a fish slice for serving, at Doctor Who party time!
