Tolkien An Arda Recipe Book

This is mainly just for fun. But I was just thinking that maybe it would be fun to make a recipe book devoted to Arda and/or Tolkien. I don't know if there is already one out there or not, but we could still try one.

Maybe some people could come up with recipes(orginal, or family owned) for things such as BBQ Balrog's wings , Sharkey Steaks, Hama's Ham and Potato mix, Galadriels Lembas, Mordor's hot and spicy dipping sauce, Sam's coonies soup. And even some drink recipes, Sauron's Martini, Entdraught, Mount Doom's Margarita. Things like that. And after we get so many, we could add them to a Word Document and print them up, or do whatever we want.

Anyways, its just for fun. Im sure there's alot of BD'ers out there that could come up with some goods. I have a hard time boiling water, so I'll leave the majority of them up to you guys!

Mim's Ultra-Secret Twice-Baked 'Root' Recipe

Bake 2 lbs. (about 4 large potatoes) of potatoes as normal. When the potatoes have been baked, remove from oven, and cut a thin slice from top of each potato; scoop out inside, leaving a thin shell. Mash potatoes until no lumps remain. Add 1/3 to 1/2 cup milk in small amounts, beating after each addition. (amount of milk needed to make potatoes smooth and fluffy depends on the kind of potatoes.) Add 1/4 cup soft butter or margarine, 1/2 teaspoon salt, dash pepper 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese and 1 cup dairy sour cream; beat vigorously until potatoes are light and fluffy.
Fill potato shells with mashed potatoes. If desired, sprinkle with finely shredded cheese. Bake 20 minutes or until filling is golden.
Note: do not teach men this recipe, for they are greedy and thriftless, and would not spare till all the plants have perished

Bilbo’s Seedcakes

Combine: 1 package dry yeast, 2 tsp. sugar, 2 Tbsp. warm water, let stand for 5 minutes.
Melt: ½ cup butter in 1 cup milk, cool.
Beat: ½ cup sugar, 3 eggs, ½ tsp. salt, then stir in yeast and milk mixtures.
Add: 4 ½ cups flour (I use part whole grain flour)
Beat dough for 5 minutes.
Let rise until double in bulk; then punch down and shape into rolls (1/3 of finished size) and place in greased muffin pans or on greased baking sheet. Let rise until double.
Brush tops with mixture of 1 egg yolk and 1 Tbsp. milk or water.
Sprinkle generously with sesame and/or poppy seeds.
Bake at 425° F. for 15 – 18 minutes (watch carefully, lower temperature if necessary – they burn easily!)
Remove from pans immediately.

(I’ve wondered what dough seedcakes are made of since my last rereading of “The Hobbit”; my good old “Joy of Cooking” has a poundcake recipe for seedcake, but that sounds terribly rich. This is a lighter, coffeecake/sweetroll type version.)

Cooked Conies...

Take 1 skinned rabbit, wrapped in aluminum foil. Simmer at high heat for 30 minutes. Remove from water, let cool. Take the rabbit out of aluminum foil, throw it away, and eat the aluminum.

Come on, it couldn't be any good anyway!

A second-breakfast classic in the Shire, light and refreshing but still food: Periannath Chilled Peach Soup.

Ingredients:

6 peaches, peeled and sliced
1-1/4 cups water
1/3 cup cooking sherry
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup orange juice (the kind with pulp is the best!)

Heat water, sherry, and sugar to boiling. Add peaches, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Cover and reduce heat to low; simmer, covered, 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and add orange juice. Pour mixture into your Middle-Earth blender and press HIGH until everything is of a similar consistency. Chill, garnish with raspberry jam and edible flowers.

Cram:

Take 1 everyday loaf of bread from the grocery store, immerse in water until thouroughly wet. Mash into compact size, set outside in sunshine for two weeks or until crunchy. Serves 3.

Hot and Spicy Balrog Wings!

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 chicken breast fillets
4-6 cups vegetable oil
1/4 cup Crystal or Frank's Louisiana hot sauce
1 tablespoon margarine

On the side
bleu cheese dressing (for dipping)
celery sticks



1. Combine flour, salt, peppers and paprika in a medium bowl.
2. In another small bowl, whisk together egg and milk.
3. Slice each chicken breast into 6 pieces. Preheat 4-6 cups of vegetable oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees.
4. One or two at a time, dip each piece of chicken into the egg mixture, then into the breading blend; then repeat the process so that each piece of chicken is double-coated.
5. When all chicken pieces have been breaded, arrange them on a plate and chill for 15 minutes.
6. When the chicken is done resting, drop each piece into the hot oil and fry for 5-6 minutes or until each piece is browned.
7. As chicken fries, combine the hot sauce and margarine in a small bowl. Microwave sauce for 20-30 seconds or just until the margarine is melted, then stir to combine. You can also use a small saucepan for this step. Just combine the hot sauce and margarine in the saucepan over low heat and stir until margarine is melted and ingredients are blended.
8. When chicken pieces are done frying, remove them to a plate lined with a couple paper towels.
9. Place the chicken pieces into a covered container such as a large jar with a lid. Pour the sauce over the chicken in the container, cover, and then shake gently until each piece of chicken is coated with sauce. Pour the chicken onto a plate and serve the dish with bleu cheese dressing and sliced celery on the side.

Serves 2-4 as an appetizer.

Enjoy with your family over a heated discussion regarding their existence!

I was ravenous when I got home today, so I threw together a new concauction of mine; a lembas sandwich!

Take 1 lembas loaf (or if you're out of Elven waybread, substitute a pita patty) and brush on olive oil. Grill in pan until golden brown. Add spice to the outside; I recommend curry or Lawry's salt. Cut the bread in two equal pockets and fill with cheese (I prefer grated parmesan), your favorite meat, spinach leaves, and some variety of dressing (vidalia onion salad dressing is great!). This is a great lunch that will keep you going for the rest of the day!

Sacred Lembas
---------------------------------------------
by B.W.

Ingredients

2 _ cups of flour
1 cup of honey (ONLY from a hive that was formed in a tree from Fangorn)
Crushed pipe-weed, to taste (Hobbits seem to like lots of this, as do the dwarves)
Water (preferably from Galadriel’s mirror)
Sprinkle the flour into a silver cauldron while singing ancient Elf-tunes. Slowly stir in the honey and chant this incantation:

Lembas, formed in secret places
Only for the ones in need.
Nourish them, brightening their faces.
Give them undying will to go on.

Lembas, sweet cakes that sustained the famous Frodo,
And kept alive Samwise in haste,
Shalt thou be kept fresh forevermore,
Time will not destroy your taste.

In this cauldron bubble and froth,
No evil is within this broth,
Gone are the days when you are needed,
but may your scent remind us still that Frodo Nine-fingers lives on, and that his quest has brought us peace,
MAY HIS DAYS NEVER CEASE!

Make certain that the last words are shouted. Repeat until the mixture has thickened. Add enough water to make it soft enough to be scooped, sort of like the mud on the riverbanks of Lothlórien in midsummer after a good rainfall. Place hobbit-foot sized lumps of the lembas-batter onto a golden platter and bake them in a sacred fire until they just begin to turn the color of the platter. While still hot, wrap the lembas in leaves and leave them to cool in the shade. Do not try this at home unless you are a wizard or an elf-maiden, the results will be, um, sticky. As aforesaid, these cakes will not spoil, and they are poisonous to Orcs. (The latter, by the way, came in handy often in the Third Age.)

YES! I'M FINALLY A WIGHT!!!!

If you add some butter and cinnamon to the Sacred Lembas, it makes good shortbread. I made it with enough butter so it didn't need water, which made the cookies very crispy and delicious. Having no water means the gluten in the flour didn't get activated, but it was ok because the honey was enough to make the flour stick together. Of course, this addition makes it not so much Lembas as, well, cookies, but it's good nonetheless. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Mrs Cotton’s Cherry Cake
200 g / 7 ozs / 1 skimpy cup sugar
6 eggs
220 g / 8ozs / 1 cup ground almonds
70 g / 3 ozs breadcrumbs
3 tblsps milk
1 teasp ground cloves
¼ teaspoon salt
500 g / 1 lb jar (or whatever size it comes in) pitted morello cherries (in juice, not sirup, if available)
2 tblsps sliced or chopped almonds, 1 tablsp sugar and 1 teasp cinnamon for sprinkling on top

Beat egg yolks and sugar until very light and fluffy. Add almonds, breadcrumbs, salt, cloves and milk. At last fold in the very stiffly beaten egg whites (start with only a spoonful of this, as the nut/yolk/sugar mixture is quite stiff, and it needs a little loosening up before adding the bulk of the egg whites). Fill into a greased springform or cake tin, and spread the drained cherries on top.

Bake for about 1 hour at 180°C /350°F / gas mark 4.

After 20 minutes of baking, sprinkle the almonds, sugar and cinnamon on top and continue baking.

Sméagol’s Fissh Dissh (Middle-earth Fish Stew)
Prep time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 10 minutes Makes: 4 servings
  • 28 oz can plum tomatoes, including juice (Yeah, yeah, I know. No tomatoes in M-E.)
  • 10 oz can chicken broth
  • ½ cup dry red wine
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ tsp anchovy paste (optional – I say hold the anchovies!)
  • ¼ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp leaf oregano
  • generous pinch of thyme
  • 1 lb (500 g frozen or fresh fissh fillets, such as cod (Well, let’s use something else - cod stocks are very low, eh? Haddock is good. Ah, Haddock stocks are low, too. Never mind.)
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 small zucchini (optional – I like it)

1. Place entire contents of can of tomatoes into a large saucepan set over high heat. Break up tomatoes with a fork. Add undiluted broth, wine and garlic. Stir in anchovy paste and seasonings.

2. If fissh is frozen, run under cold water for a few minutes to rinse off ice crystals and soften slightly. Cut fissh into 2-inch pieces. Stir into tomato mixture. Adjust heat so that mixture boils gently. Stir often.

3. Meanwhile, chop green pepper and stir into tomato mixture. Then slice zucchini, if using, and stir in. By this time, fissh should be flaky. If so, stew is ready. Serve stew with hot My Precious Parmesan Bread.

Per serving: 170 calories, 25.8 g protein, 84 mg calcium, 2.5 mg iron

(Yes, I know Gollum preferred sushi; this recipe was his favourite before he got his ‘birthday present’. His grandma used to make it for him.)

My Precious Parmesan Bread
Prep time: 5 minutes Broiling time: 1 minute Makes: 6 servings
  • 1 small French baguette
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • Freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat broiler. Cut bread in half lengthwise. Brush both halves with olive oil. Then evenly sprinkle with Parmesan, basil and pepper.

2. Place bread, Parmesan-side up, on a baking sheet. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes or just until Precious cheese is golden.

Per serving: 198 calories, 5.9 g protein, 68 mg calcium, 1.5 mg iron

Mrs. Maggot’s Mushroom & Bacon Frittata
(Farmer Maggot’s favourite lunch. One of my faves, too. Great with a mixed greens and tomato salad. Or with home-fried taters.)

·8 slices side bacon, chopped
·3 cups (750 mL) sliced fresh mushrooms
·1/3 cup (75 mL) sliced green onions
·1 tbsp. (15 mL) salt
·6 eggs
·¾ cup (175 mL) milk
·2 cups (500mL) shredded Swiss (or Havarti, Colby, Cheddar) cheese, divided
·1 tbsp. (15 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
optional addition:
·½ cup (125 mL) - when cooked - chopped spinach


In large non-stick, oven-proof frypan cook bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving 1 tbsp. (15 mL) drippings; set bacon aside. Sauté mushrooms and onions in reserved drippings until tender and any liquid has evaporated. Add flour and salt to pan; toss to coat. Beat together eggs and milk; add sautéed vegetables and 1 ½ cups (375 mL) of the Swiss cheese. Pour into frypan; cover. Cook over low heat 20 to 25 minutes or until set. Remove cover. Sprinkle with remaining ½ cup (125 mL) Swiss cheese, Parmesan and reserved bacon. Place under broiler until cheese is melted. Makes 4 servings.

I recently tried adding chopped spinach to this - it can be pre-steamed or raw and then sautéed with the onions and mushrooms. Very tasty and more healthy.

Narya Muffins
One of my standbys. Tangy cranberries bursting from tender cake-like muffins. Substitute blueberries to make Vilya Muffins and use chocolate chips to make Nenya Muffins. (I use regular chocolate chips, but white chocolate would be more appropriate. Butterscotch chips might be good too.)

Preparation: 15 minutes Baking: 25 minutes Yield: 12 muffins


·1 ½ cups (375 mL) all-purpose flour
OR
·1 ½ cups (400 mL) cake & pastry flour
·½ cup (125 mL) granulated sugar
·1 tbsp (15 mL) baking powder
·¼ tsp (1 mL) salt
·1 egg
·1 cup (250 mL) milk
·1/3 cup (75 mL) melted butter
·1 cup (250 mL) cranberries*, fresh or frozen, thawed and well drained
·½ cup (125 mL) chopped nuts (optional)
(I recommend walnuts for all three variations; macadamia nuts, pecans or almonds would be good with the white chocolate or butterscotch.)

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in mixing bowl.
Beat egg, milk and melted butter together thoroughly.
Add liquid ingredients all at once to dry ingredients. Stir just until moistened.
Gently fold in cranberries and nuts.
Fill greased muffin cups ¾ full.
Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 20-25 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched.

The Gaffer's Delight - Tater Salad

· ½ red onion, sliced
· ½ English cucumber, chopped
· ½ sweet pepper, sliced (yellow or red)

It seems to me that there are a few other recipies floating around the forums.

By the way, regarding the Balrog Wings recipe: the first direction should read "Catch eight medium to large balrogs..."

Mirkwood
Preliminary: Cook 2 cups brown or white rice in 3 cups boiling water until tender. (this will take 15-20 miutes for white, and 35-45 minutes for brown) fluff the cooked rice with a fork and set aside.

Ingredients
a 1 lb. bunch of broccoli
1 Tbs. butter or canola oil
1 cup chopped onion
3/4 tsp. salt
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 Tbs. Fresh lemon juice
about 6 cups cooked rice
freshley ground black pepper
cayenne to taste
2 Tbs. minced fresh dill (dried-2 tsp.)
3 Tbs minced fresh mint (dried-3 tsp.)
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1/2 cup toasted sunflower seeds
1 packed cup grated cheddar or swiss-optional
a little melted butter for the top (optional)

1. Trim the tough bottoms from the broccoli stalks, and cut the tops into smalish spears of whatever size suits you. Cook them in a steamer over boiling water until bright green and just barely tender. Rinse under cold running water, drain well, and set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 325. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch bakng pan.

3. Melt the butter or heat the oil in a large, deep skillet or a dutch oven. Add the onion and salt and saute over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until the onon begins to soften. Add the garlic and lemon juice, and saute over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until the onion begins to soften. Add the garlic and lemon juice, and sauté about 2 minutes longer. Stir in the rice, some black pepper and cayenne to taste, the herbs, and the optional sunflower seeds and/or cheese. taste to correct salt, if necessary, and spread into the prepared pan.

4. Now for the fun part. Arrange the broccoli upright in the rice, and, is desired, drizzle with melted butter. Cover loosely with foil, and bake until just heated through (15-20 minutes). Serve right away.
