15 Minute Veggie Soup in the Thermomix

I whipped up this soup for two today in 15 minutes! I mean...hello! The Thermomix just demands that you do things from scratch and eat healthy because it's just SOOOOOO EASY!!!!


1 clove garlic
1 small onion
1 tbsp stock
500 g water
2 carrots, roughly chopped
1 potato, roughly chopped
100 g pumpkin, roughly chopped
3 stalks corriander
Salt and pepper to taste


Add garlic and onion to TM bowl. Chop 2 seconds, speed 7.
Add water and stock to TM bowl.
Put TM basket into TM bowl.
Add veggies and corriander to TM basket. Cook 12 minutes, Varoma, speed 3.

Tip veggies into TM bowl. Slowly puree the soup for 1 minute, gradually up to speed 9.

Season and serve. 

So easy and delicious. Happy Thermomixing!

Gluten, Dairy, Yeast and Grain Free Bread Rolls

These taste really good! Don't be fooled by the title, free from all of the above actually lends itself to a light, airy roll with a bit of chew. I was in awe the first time I tasted them, of course I was thinking the worst! But alas, the Thermomix and the creativity it generates, has proved itself to be the best kitchen tool I've ever had! I found this recipe on the Thermomix Recipe Community!


200 g almonds
25 g psyllium husks
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 egg whites
21/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
250 g boiling water


Preheat oven to 170.

Add almonds and psyllium husks to TM bowl. Mill 10 seconds, speed 9.
Add baking powder and salt to TM bowl. Mix TURBO, 2 times.
Put lid and MC on.

Add the egg whites, using the lid to crack your egg and MC to let the egg white trickle down and keep the yolk from accidentally falling in. Add the vinegar on the lid, trickling around the MC. Knead, 20 seconds.

Add BOILING water through lid with MC on, to allow a slow trickle and immediately knead for 1 minute.

The mixture will be very wet but gooey. Use your spatula to spoon out onto TM mat. Section off 8 rolls and place on lined baking tray. You will be able to grab the dough easily enough to do this.

Bake for 50-60 minutes, until golden on bottom and cooked through (push top of roll and it will bounce back). Let cool completely on cooling rack. 

Serve with soup, or make into a sandwich! Yummy!

Spicy Red Pepper Dip in the Thermomix

Last night we went to a Matt Corby concert at the Fremantle Arts Centre and needed a yummy snack to enjoy during the music! I took at look at some dips at the shops last week to get inspiration for flavour combinations and was excited to come home and make a fresh and preservative free dip! Here is my first creation...it was really yummy and not too spicy so don't worry!

Ingredients and Method:

1 garlic clove
250 g cream cheese
60 g roasted red peppers
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chili flakes
1 tsp salt

Add all ingredients to TM bowl. Mix 20 seconds, speed 4. Or until desired consistency. Serve!

How to Properly Self-Clean Your Thermomix

The Thermomix cleans itself! Yes, it's true. But maybe you don't have the method down pat? Here's what I do:

Add water to the 1L mark. 

Add a drop of liquid detergent OPTIONAL (when I'm cleaning something savoury and moving on the something sweet I use it). 

Put lid and MC on with the dirty side down. Lock the bowl. 

Turn up to speed 4/5 and switch from regular to reverse every 5 or so seconds for about 20-30 seconds total (depending on how dirty). 

Lock TM bowl. Push TURBO 1-3 times to clean the lid. 

Unlock and remove lid. Discard water. Voila! Ready to use again. 
**Sometimes if you do more than a drop of liquid soap you will need to rinse out the bowl to get rid of soap suds. 

Also, save time and drying by keeping the prongs out of any running water. That way you can pop the bowl right back in place!


Foolproof Pie Crust in the Thermomix

For Thanksgiving, I made 2 pies because the pastry was just so easy! I didn't need two pies but they sure were yummy in the days after the big feast! This could be used as either a sweet or savoury pie. Each of my pies were single crust so this recipe only makes ONE. I wouldn't double the recipe as it could toughen the dough. Instead, because it's so quick, just make two batches if you need a bottom and a too for your pie. 

210g flour
1tsp baking powder
120g cold, unsalted butter

2 1/2 tbsp ice water 

1tsp sugar

Add flour, baking powder, butter to TM bowl. Mix 10 seconds, speed 6.

Now, knead for 1 minute and slowly add water through the lid (no need to take out the MC, just pour and it will trickle down).

Tip on to Thermo Mat and form into a ball. Roll out to desired thickness (aim for .5cm as it will puff up slightly!) and larger than your pie dish. Use according to your recipe (as base, prebake, as top). 

Happy Thermomixing!

Chocolate Chip Cookies in the Thermomix

These were gone in less than 24hrs. I mean that is sooo embarrassing to admit but they were just so damn good. Comparable to Subway cookies but less greasy that's for sure. I will be very careful when I make these again...it is beach season now :| Hehe...says the self proclaimed Cookie Monster ;)
100g raw sugar

125g butter
100g brown sugar
1/2tsp vanilla 
1 egg or egg substitute

250g self raising flour
150g dark choc chips OR white choc chips OR M&M's OR a combo!


Preheat oven to 180º. 

Add sugar to TM bowl. Mill 10 seconds, speed 9. 

Add butter, brown sugar and vanilla to TM bowl. Mix 1 minute, speed 4 but add the egg through the top lid at 30 seconds remaining.

Add flour. Knead for 20 seconds.

Add chocolate. Mix 10 seconds, REVERSE, soft speed.

Spoon mixture onto a lined baking tray. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Will be very soft until completely cooled, so leave on tray. 

These are naughty but yummy. Good for a once in a while treat! Happy Thermomixing!

Vegan Custard in the Thermomix

I've never had custard but everyone always rants and raves about it so I've been dying to try it! My favourite Thermo consultant inspired me to give it a go and voila...here is my vegan version. I thought it tasted very nice but I might have preferred it chilled, so tomorrow I will indulge in leftovers :) I don't have anything to compare it to but I quite liked this alternative dessert that's sugar, egg and dairy free! I combined a few recipes online to suit what was in my pantry tonight!

1 tin coconut milk
30g light agave syrup
1tsp vanilla
50g arrowroot flour
1/4 tsp salt 
Vegan chocolate shaved to serve

Put all ingredients in TM bowl and cook 6 minutes, 90º, speed 4. Serve. 

Happy Thermomixing!


Easy Layered Meal in the Thermomix!

Ok, this is always tricky at first when I am experimenting, but I have succeeded! The hard part for me is not mixing any meat, or meat juice for that matter, into my vegetarian part of the meal. Same goes for dairy if that's something I'm avoiding. Here is a run down of what I made for dinner last night...

Pizza Bianca
Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Soup
Rosemary and Thyme Steamed Chicken with Sauce OR Lentils with Sauce
Cauliflower, Green Beans, Tagliatelle Carrot

Sound decadent?! Well, it was, and it was easy. I've based the meal around one of the Thermomix demo's so way too much food for 2, but I am working on the portion stuff after I sort out the taste factor!

Ingredients & Method:

Pizza Bianca
Preheat oven to 220º.

3 sprigs rosemary leaves
2 cloves garlic, peeled

Add to TM bowl. Chop 4 seconds, speed 7. Remove and set aside.

220g lukewarm water
1tsp sugar
2tsp yeast

Add to TM bowl. Mix 20 seconds, speed 2.

400g baker's flour
30g olive oil
1tsp salt

Add to TM bowl. Knead, 2 minutes.

Place dough on TM mat and divide in 1/2. You can freeze or refrigerate the other half. Roll 1/2 into a ball and wrap in mat and place in a warm place for 15 minutes.

Soup & Chicken

1 garlic clove
1 onion, halved

Add to TM bowl. Chop 3 seconds, speed 7.

20g olive oil

Add to TM bowl. Saute 2 minutes, Varoma, speed 1.

500g water
1 tbsp stock
200g sweet potato, peeled and cubed
300g cauliflower, chopped
**These 2 veggies should fill up you TM basket
2 chicken breasts, prepared how you wish (we kept it as a whole breast)

Add water and stock to TM bowl.
Add veggies to TM basket and insert into TM bowl.
Add chicken to Varoma tray (top), lined with dampened baking paper, so no leaks occur, place ontop of TM bowl. Cook 12 minutes, Varoma, speed 1.

**DURING THIS TIME get your dough out on the TM mat and roll out into a circle, top with reserved rosemary and garlic olive oil and salt. Bake on a pizza tray or stone for 20 minutes.**

Vegetables of your choice (and how much you need). I used:
1 carrot, tagliatelle
Leftover cauliflower (what didn't fit in my TM basket)
Handful of frozen green beans
1/2 tin lentils, in a ramekin

Add to Varoma dish. Continue cooking everything 10 minutes, Varoma, speed 1.

Remove Varoma and place veggies and chicken into Thermoserver to stay warm. Add TM basket veggies to TM bowl. Blend 1 minute, speed 9 (gradual). Pour into Thermoserver but leave enough to cover the blades for the sauce.

1 tbsp greek yogurt
2 tsp wholegrain mustard

Add to TM bowl. Mix 10 seconds, speed 3.

Serve up!

How Much Do I Love the Thermomix...?

Well, I love the Thermomix so much that I have decided to become a Consultant!

I have felt truly inspired by this amazing machine and the people behind it! I want to spread this love and passion to others, especially those with tricky food allergies/sensitivities/intolerance's and those wanting to cut out all the unnecessary additives and preservatives found in our food today. I hope that, by joining the Thermomix team, I can excite and motivate people about healthy cooking and eating. I want people to be excited about what they put in their bodies and know why it's so important to make conscious food decisions, all while making simple and delicious food.

I can finally say that I have a healthy relationship with food- I no longer wish that there was a pill to take that would make me feel full and receive all the nutrients I need because I have found something, the Thermomix, to help me work around my allergies. I will admit though, that I was one of the people who put off getting the machine, as I thought the price was too risky AND I wouldn't get the same pleasure out of cooking and baking that I did 'by hand'. But after going to 3 demo's (all very inspiring and successful) over a 2 year period, I knew that I could still indulge my love for cooking and baking. What I didn't know but have been pleasantly surprised by is how creative I can be in the kitchen now with this amazing tool. I have made food that I always wanted to try but thought the risk was too high and if it turned out to be a flop I would have wasted too much time, ingredients and confidence. A huge shout out to the recipe books and recipe sharing community among the Thermomix world...I just couldn't have taken that big leap without them. I am at the point where I trial my own recipes now and I am having a blast EVERY DAY in the kitchen. I just love using the Thermomix. It has saved me so much time, dishes and frustration that I can't imagine my life without it! I eat better than I ever have in my life and I no longer feel like I'm missing out on the experience of food.

Just writing all of this down, has given me more inspiration to be the best Consultant I can. I might as well put all of the creative doing, thinking, writing, talking and passion I have towards something! I've always been a goal setter and love taking on new challenges...I'm excited to see where this one will take me!

Happy Thermomixing!


Juicing in the Thermomix! Easy!!!

I woke up this morning, everyday this week mind you, with terrible hayfever. It is quite bad; I can't breathe trough my nose, have itchy watery puffy eyes, scratchy throat and somehow my nose runs and is completely blocked at the same time with generous helpings of sneezes!!!  I know I'm not alone but this is all a part of my Oral Allergy Syndrome. My seasonal allergies have been getting progressively worse since moving here so I am just hoping that all of this desensitization from Canadian pollen isn't going to be replaced by Aussie pollens. I desperately want to continue eating these new families of fruit/veg/nuts.

So this morning I figured my body deserves some vitamin c to help ward off any germs I may bring in through all the nose blowing and touching and clear this sinus infection. I can't taste food in this state so no point in whipping up something decadent. I stuck with a simple juice and it was so good! I could taste the fresh grapefruit and enjoyed basically pulp free juice in 2 minutes...go Thermo!

2 oranges, peeled and halved 
1 grapefruit, peeled and cut in thirds
1 tray of ice

Add all ingredients to TM bowl. 

Chop at speed 5, 20-30 seconds (until the MC settles down), then blend for 2 minutes, speed 9. You can insert the basket if you'd like to strain the pulp- just make sure you've lined up the lip of the basket with the pouring lip of the TM bowl. I don't find there to be much left after the 2 minutes so I don't bother!!!

Other favourite combos:

2 oranges, peeled and halved
1 lemon, peeled and halved
1 tray of ice


1 apple, quartered
1 orange, peeled and halved
1 lemon, peeled and halved
1 tray of ice

Happy Thermomixing :)
