Chicken Tagine

Lemony Chicken Tagine in an instant!

Don’t hate me, but this recipe doesn’t use the Thermomix. I know right? But it is so tasty that I can’t just keep it to myself. I’ve made this using my other great love, my new digital pressure cooker, my “Instant Pot”. Don’t panic if you don’t have one; you can cook this in any pressure […]

Crunchy Raw Slaw

Coleslaw is traditionally made with regular green or red cabbage. I know that there are many recipes around for “KFC Style” coleslaw but, to be honest, I don’t like it. I find it a bit too heavy going and gluggy.  Then when you’re eating it you get a thick chunk of white vein/stalk in the […]

Broad Bean Risotto

Broad Bean, Rocket, Lemon & Sage Risotto with Crispy Skin Lemon Chicken

Sorry it has been a very quiet few months around here. There’s been big changes a foot (which I will tell you all about next time), coupled with a bit of a medical emergency which had me out of cooking action for quite a while. But don’t worry, I’m back and have so many recipes half […]

Varoma Chicken

Legless Chook (or how to cook a whole chicken)

When I first became a Thermomix Advisor I was often telling people “did you know that you can cook a whole chicken in the varoma?” – a question that was often greeted with astonished looks. “It’s true” I’d say, “I haven’t tried it but…”. To be honest my Husband does a great roast chicken, so […]

Banana Bread

Banana Bread (GF & DF options)

Hands up who loves Banana Bread? Growing up in our house it was always “Banana Cake”. To be honest I’ve never really understood what the difference is, if indeed there is a difference at all. I was always a bit secretly pleased to find the bananas had gone brown, it meant Mum could be convinced to […]

Quinoa Chia Poppy Crisps

Quinoa Chia Poppy Crackers

I struggle to find nice GF crackers for having with dips or cheese. I’ve long been jealous of the selection of pretty seeded flatbreads and crackers available for the gluten-tolerant but there is no good substitute. Oatcakes can be a bit too heavy and aren’t the prettiest. Back in Australia we used a lot of the […]

Beetroot Hummus

Beetroot Hummus

I have previously pondered the variety of spellings of “Hummus” when I made my Sweet Potato Hummus. So let’s not dwell on that this time. But I’ve just found out that the word Hummus actually translates to “Chickpea”, so really it is an incomplete description regardless of how you spell it.  A bit like calling Babaganoush […]

Coconutty Lemon Curd

Divine Coconutty Lemon Curd (Dairy Free)

Lemon is one of my favourite flavours. Be it in either a dessert (especially lemon meringue pie) or in a savoury using preserved lemons, sprinkling finely grated lemon zest on top of a spicy soup or simply a squeeze of juice on fresh fish. Once I even made lemon marmalade which was amazing. In fact, […]
