6 Minute Protein Butter!

Wow! This has really rocked my socks off! This spread is ideal for crackers, corn thins, toast and fresh bread rolls- or by the spoonful when no one is looking ;)

*Can be doubled 
Ingredients & Method

200g almonds
50g pumpkin seeds
50g sunflower seeds
30g sesame seeds

Place nuts and seeds in 190º oven for 5 minutes to roast. 

Put in TM bowl. Add pinch of rock salt and pinch of raw sugar. Gradually add grapeseed oil (enough to make a smooth paste) through the lid as you blend 40 seconds, speed 8. 

Store in the fridge, up to 2 months.

Gherkin Dip in the Thermomix

This recipe comes from liz mancini on the Thermomix Recipe Community. It was really yummy so I just had to share...


1/2 onion
1 tbsp olive oil
5 sweet spiced gherkins
250 g cream cheese


Add onion to TM bowl. Chop 3 seconds, speed 7. Scrape down bowl. 

Add oil. Sauté 2 minutes, 100, speed 1

Add gherkins to TM bowl. Chop 5 seconds, speed 6. 

Add cream cheese. Blend 20 seconds, speed 4. Scrape down bowl. Repeat. 

Serve with crackers or veggies. I used it as a sandwich spread too which was fantastic! Would be good spread inside of scrolls made using the basic bread recipe in the EDC too!
