Kitchen Victories with Thermomix

Kitchen Victories with Thermomix "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." Michael Pollan, Food Rules, an eater's manual. To that I'd add: "Cook from scratch. Make it easier with a Thermomix."

Ok, not that catchy, but can't think of a better way of describing what this page (me) is about. I'm a London based mum of two and a Cordon Bleu trained cook. I also own a Thermomix and give Thermomix Cooking Experiences that hope to give ideas on how to achieve all of the above, mostly the eating (real) food without ta fuss. Contact me if you're interested.

When you have just enough ingredients to follow a recipe

✨Black rice bowl with chicken and mushroom (gut health) ✨

(except that is salmon with edamame 😌)

Please please please go and make it tonight; it’s easy, delicious, good for your gut and easily doubled or trippled for a night in with your girlfriends.

Tweaks

- erm, you can use salmon instead of chicken and bake in oven instead of pan - easier and you can fit more than in a pan - start with bottom side up and flip half way through. Top grill the last few mins.

- and edamame and/or bok choi instead of broccolini (steam for less time). You can fill all the Varoma with veg and steam at the same time as the rice - add after 10 mins.

- easily quadruple the sauce

- up to 350g of black rice in steaming basket - use speed 5 instead of speed 4

I’m a fan

Monday morning pastries - one I wouldn’t recommend you make 😅
.
Let me explain - I followed @sarah_kieffer sweet dough recipe and filled half with cinnamon and half with chocolate. They are brilliant and tender even the following morning, which is rare, but that’s because they have a long fermentation period (as it should be).

But even if you use a Thermomix and save time and cleaning - the weighing, the heating to the right temperature the milk and egg mixture so the yeast activates quickly etc… it’s still all a bit of a faff.

The cookidoo kanelbullars (swipe) are easier and for the easiest of all, the now famous Estonian Kringle which takes no time (but has to be eaten right after baking).

Hope you all have a fantastic week. Sun is shining, that helps.

One dish that I look forward to when we start having grey and rainy days 💚 Mind, there are 2 🥥🍃Coconut and Spinach Dahls in cookidoo.

I like this one (swipe for photo) - it has a few more ingredients and one more step but the flavour is 🙌

If you have a heavy hand with 🌶 like me lately, add a swirl of coconut milk or yoghurt

Great as a stand alone meal (with the Quick flatbreads?) or as part of a curry feast as it can be easily made ahead.

🥕 If you use a 6 inch cake tin, you get many mini carrot bonus cakes, just sayin’...

This one is for the non purists, no walnut, no raisins, just carrot, spices and a hint of orange. The icing has white choc which helps the consistency (and flavour imo).

I’M ALIVE. And I’ll be kicking off the ‘back to posting’ posts with one of my favourite things in the world ✨choux✨.

Everything in the picture has been made with the Thermomix; the choux, the craquelin and the chocolate crème pâtissière. You can also make the caramel but I did it in a pan for dipping easiness - shhh.

AND I’ll be in the Restaurant Show @restaurantshow at Olympia until 1pm today - imagine how useful is for a restaurant or cafe to have any chef (even the stagier!) make batches of any of these things in minutes. Time + money saved ✅✅

If you swipe you’ll see the 2 properly amazing offers finishing tomorrow (I know I know).

Ps. Happy birthday husband

Happy Epiphany Day. A traditional (well, 2!)✨Roscón de Reyes✨ that we started having yesterday with @chocolatesvalor hot chocolate and will have for breakfast this morning when the children open their kings’ presents.
.
Aeons ago when I was a child, this was the only time presents would arrive, on top of camels to the apartment at the top of a building where I use to live. Shoes were left near a good landing spot and food and milk for the animals and the three wise men. Magic camels and magic time.
.
Recipe by insanely talented @bakestreet from her brilliant course (still available and in both Spanish and English). Very long fermentation which has resulted in the softest longest lasting most delicious Roscones I’ve ever made. Every superlative is necessary. Everything she does is also magic.

✨Coconut Left Over Turkey Curry✨ was great tonight. Tangy, earning, delicious.
.
Thank you @graykitchentable for the inspo! Have made this fish curry before and is brilliant but never thought to make it with leftovers, everyone loved it.
.
Added turkey in bowl instead of fish in Varoma and the rest was the same. Using the new Thermomix Friend (if you haven’t heard, let me know, is brilliant), made everything even easier than usual.

A secular ✨Tarta de Santiago✨ (St James’ tart).
.
If you’ve been to Spain you may have seen this tart - it’s as inescapable as is delicious - round, with lots of icing sugar and the shape of St James’ cross on top. It’s silly (nostalgic) but I’d usually print a template and go about recreating this childhood tart. You, of course, don’t need to but if you do make this, it’s always more fun with some shape on top.
.
This cookidoo version is super easy in a rustic way. I think I like it better with an almond a bit more ground and with the egg whites beaten separately and folded into the mixture. It’s such a simple tart that this step doesn’t complicate it in excess.
.
And it’s GLUTEN FREE.
.
As usual, very happy to be your google translate, just dm me

✨Salmon Tikka Dinner with Steamed rice✨
.
One of the best things your Thermomix can make is curry paste. I always try to have some in the freezer - green Thai, tikka - for a quick supper. Better than shop bought, much fresher and better value.
.
KV tip. Unless you use brown rice I’d take the rice (and green veg) at 13 mins.

The ‘cake’ I always make when the children want something sweet and plain. It’s soft and delicious, this one is made with milk but often I use yoghurt.
.
It looks like nothing but it’s everything. In Alicante it’s called ✨Coca Boba✨, Silly cake?, because it’s so easy too make and you’ll find it in every bakery, with or without almonds.
.
Grind 🔸300g sugar* 20s speed 10.
.
Add 🔸4 strips of lemon or orange rind and grind 20 more seconds speed 10.
.
Add 🔸3 eggs and whisk 3 mins at 37C speed 5
.
Add 🔸250g milk and 🔸250g of sunflower (or light olive) oil and mix 10 sec speed 5
.
Add 🔸400g self raising flour and mix 10 sec speed 3. Finish mixing with spatula
.
Pour into 30x20cm tin, sprinkle with sugar and bake for 30 min in a 180C preheated oven.
.
Check for doneness and add a few more mins if necessary

Different way to eat your garbanzos ✨Chickpeas with Tomato, Piquillo Peppers and Tuna✨

This is super delicious, a lighter option to the usual Spanish chorizo and chickpeas combo but as filling. The sauce is slow cooked in bowl while the chickpeas (always soft @conservaselnavarrico) warm up in Varoma

From @thermomixespana cookidoo, let me know if you fancy making it and I’ll translate

✨Apple Rose Tart✨from @thermomixukandireland cookidoo.
.
A fantastic autumn recipe, not the quickest, but completely doable for everyone and a brilliant way to use up all your cooking apples.
.
Get hold of a good mandoline (mine is a bit sh*t, can’t find the blades of the good one) because that’s the lengthiest bit.
.
Made one for us and one for our neighbours who are gold 🙌, there’s not a day I don’t have to thank them for something.
.
But honestly, if you don’t want to make 2, double the compote (1.2kg of 🍏) because it’s insane, that lemon rind sugar makes all the difference.
.
Ah! You could easily make this without sugar, just cook the compote longer to caramelise the apple a bit.
.
Last! KV tip: rest your compote on a sieve over a bowl so the compote is not too liquid when it goes in the tart.

✨Eggless Choc Cupcakes✨ in @thermomixespana Cookidoo

Tweaked them a bit to make them vegan (although I used milk choc because I had nothing else 🙄). Anyway, use almond milk instead of milk and water and self raising flour to make it simpler. Soft, light, a very basic, very lovely, plain vegan!* cupcake

Ps. If you need translation with tweaks, let me know.

✨Berry Foam✨ or the Frozen Fruit Sorbet with the whisk for a bit.
.
So fabulous it’s a shame the client cannot taste it on a virtual demo. No matter how cold and rainy it is, it‘s always perfect after a warming stew or curry.
.
This is perhaps, in its many variations, the Thermomix recipe I’ve done the most in the last 14 years. Always lower the sugar (or substitute it), it’s as brilliant for play dates as for dinner parties, whenever we have those again.

Yikes. First time. Tomorrow Sunday 11th at 12.30pm Madrid time (11.30am UK) I’ll be cooking (live!) in @capitainhaddock ‘s page, with another 6 thermomixers from Spain and Portugal. We’ll all be doing different recipes but we’ll all be united by the mighty marvellous beast our Thermomix is.

If you understand Spanish and fancy peeking in, please tune in - I think you need to go to Tomás’ page called Shows Capitain Haddock and watch us there. If I manage to post a link, I’ll do.

A porridge a day...
.
I usually take mine after children have been dropped off (long that may last), the dog has been walked and I sit in front of the iPad to work and procrastinate a bit.
.
For 1, it’s 50g oats + 150g oat milk plus a little more for luck + handful of (black) berries + star anise + couple of orange peelings (I keep lemon and orange peel frozen - v useful to flavour anything) + a bit of vanilla paste. 6 mins / 95C / speed 0.5.
.
Use the newly improved self cleaning function for a perfectly unfussed (unfussy? fussless?) breakfast

Another favourite ✨Timatar Wala Macchi✨ with salmon (instead of cod).
.
Doubled the sauce ingredients (and added a bit of time of cooking). Didn’t pan fry the fish first but put it straight in the oven at 200C and in the meantime I steamed some rice in the steaming basket with veg in the Varoma. Super easy supper for a school day and good for a dinner party with different sides.

Mayonnaise - the Thermomix recipe looks lovely and so simple but it advises to keep in the fridge only up to 3 days! Is there any recipe that lasts for longer in the fridge?? Thanks!
