  3. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add bacon and garlic and cook until bacon starts leaving some oil. Add carrot, celery, and onion; and cook until the onions soften.
  4. Add mushrooms and chicken, and cook until the chicken is 80% cooked. Sprinkle the flour mixture over and mix well until everything combines.
  5. Pour in the chicken stock and bring the mixture to a boil. Turn off the heat and transfer the mixture to the baking tin. Brush the mixture with egg wash and put the baking tin into the oven.
  6. Bake the cobbler for 20 to 25 minutes until the top turns brown. Serve hot.

24. Thumbprint cookies with fruit jam

You will need:

  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup mixed nuts (chopped)
  • ⅔ cup fruit-flavored jam
  • 1 egg
  • ½tsp vanilla bean paste or extract
  • ¼tsp salt

How to make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°C). Grease a baking sheet, and keep it aside.
  2. Break the eggs and separate the whites. Pour the yolk into a bowl and mix well with butter and brown sugar to make the cream.
  3. Add flour, salt, and vanilla bean paste or extract to the egg-butter mix and make a smooth dough.
  4. Take small dough balls and roll them first in the egg white and then in chopped nuts.
  5. Place the dough balls on the baking sheet, leaving a centimeter of space between the two balls. Put the baking sheet into the oven and bake the balls for five minutes.
  6. Take the tray from the oven, gently press each cookie top using the thumb to make a dent. Fill the dent with the fruit jam and bake the cookies for eight minutes. Take out the cookies from the oven and serve.

25. Funny face pizzas

You will need:

  • 2 whole-wheat muffins
  • ¼ cup low-sodium tomato sauce
  • ⅓ cup cheddar cheese (grated)
  • ½ carrot peeled (grated)
  • ½ red capsicum (cut into thin slices)
  • 4 baby corns (split into halves)
  • 2 large green olives (cut into 8 round slices)
  • 1tsp dried herbs mix
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

How to make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°C).
  2. Cut the muffin in half horizontally. Spread the tomato sauce on the cut side, and sprinkle over the cheddar.
  3. Place two olive slices on the cheese as eyes, grated carrot, baby corn as hair, and red capsicum slices for the mouth. Repeat the process with all the muffin slices and place them on a baking sheet.
  4. Put the baking sheet into the oven and bake the pizza for around seven minutes until the cheese begins bubbling and the veggies turn light brown.
  5. Take out the pizzas from the oven and serve hot with cheesy salsa dip or guacamole.
