Additional information: Note: The longer you knead and simmer the gluten, the tougher it will
become, so you can pick your own texture. This recipe is a lot simpler thanthe "old-fashioned" way!


  • 125 g dried pitted dates
  • 2 tablespoon roasted almond paste
  • 3 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup semolina
  • 3tbs nuttelex


Serves 6 - 8.

Soak the dates and almond paste in the water for at least 30 minutes. Strain and mash through as much of the dates as you can. Reserve both the liquid and remaining solids.

In a saucepan melt the nuttellex, add the semolina and stir for a few minutes till well mixed through.

Add half the reserved liquid and whisk till smooth and slightly thickened. Add the remaining liquid and reserved solids and whisk through, till the mix has thickened again.

Pour the mixture into a shallow (5 cm or so) baking dish, and bake in a low to moderate oven for 30 - 50 minutes, till the mixture has firmed up but not cracked on top ( one or two cracks is ok!).

Chill and serve sliced , with some tart or crunchy fruit.
