My friends may have heard me talk about it one too many times so I think I need to explain just why I love my Thermomix so much.  Basically it has revolutionised my cooking as well as helped me manage my kitchen and larder in a much more sustainable way.

So, healthy recipes….

It makes light work of recipes that I used to avoid because they were too complicated.  Cauliflower rice and curry dishes for example.  With the Thermomix, you can whiz the cauliflower into rice, pop it into a steamer basket and suspend it within the Thermomix while the curry or casserole cooks in the bowl below.  In fact, you can steam all sorts of vegetables or protein in the steamer tray or basket...

This is my favourite Thermomix recipe so far.  It can obviously also all be done the conventional way by following the method but replacing the Thermomix with a stove top, a grater and a steamer where necessary.
