Steps to make a Spelt kneaded Gofio ball
I share with you how to make kneaded Spelt Gofio, in this case from a Gofio´s mill in the north of Tenerife. This recipe is also called Gofio’s ball or Gofio’s lump. Below you can see the necessary ingredients, and the steps to follow.
It is already known that Spelt, in addition to being one of the oldest types of wheat, and apart from its nutritional and digestive benefits, it is more resistant to disease, and it provides a different texture, taste and smell.
In the end you can see a link to another post on the advantages of the Gofio of the Canary Islands. I also add a link at the end to watch a video of how a Gofio ball (from Wheat and Corn) is made. And moreover, I also add a link to know how to make the green mojo (sauce) of the Canary Islands, or Coriander sauce.
We need the following INGREDIENTS;
- 2 spoons of raisins,
- Enough milk to cover the raisins, which we will soak until they swell (I leave them the night before soaking in the fridge),
- 2 tablespoons of peeled and chopped almonds,
- 3 bananas from the Canary Islands, which we’re going to skid,
- 2 tablespoons of honey,
- and Spelt’s gofio.
STEPS to follow;
1st- Mix everything but the gofio, and remove well.
And then we add the gofio while we stir.
2nd- When it thickens a lot, we start kneading with our hands. We will notice that kneading with Spelt Gofio is different, by the absorption of the liquid.
3rd- We continue to add gofio, and there will come a time when it will be so thick that we will have to knead with our fists, until the dough peels off the bowl, and we can shape the ball without it sticking in our hands.
4th- We can shape it as a mold bread to make it easier to cut. And in the end, we can sprinkle gofio around it, so it doesn’t sweat when putting it in the fridge.
And ready to eat at breakfast. And for lunch, if we have wine from the Canary Islands, then to suck your fingers!.
Thank you very much for the visit, and see you soon!
