Ultimate list of favourite thermomix recipes
Photo Credit: Arwen Genge – We love Thermomixing
Most of you know by now that I love my thermomix. I’m not a pushy person when it comes to them, but if you say to me that you are thinking of buying one, and ask for my opinion, this is it…
- Yes, they are an very expensive piece of kitchen equipment, but I use it EVERY day. It may not be to cook a grand dinner, it might just be delicious (and healthy breakfast smoothies) but I do make it worth my while.
- My kids are eating healthier foods. Less processed foods, because its just so quick and easy to whip up lunchbox snacks on the weekend for the week ahead.
- It’s less washing up. In fact, it washes itself, you just need to give it a quick swish with a kitchen brush and dry it afterwards. Heaps less pots and pans.
- Think of a recipe – a quick Google is guaranteed to find a conversion and something you though would be difficult is broken down into simple steps. Things that defeated me before, I can tackle with confidence.
- I love the fact that I can set dinner up and let it go while I bath the kids, help Miss E with her readers or tidy up the house while it stirs and cooks away.
- Yes, you can do most things without a thermomix, but this makes it quicker and easier. You can use whole foods (hello pumpkin soup using the seeds and skin) and you have less tidying up.
When a friend buys a thermomix, I send them this list of my favourite recipes. Enjoy!
Cakes, breads, biscuits and treats
Women’s Weekly Butter Cake – My go-to birthday cake and cupcake recipe…
Magic Bean Cake – Kidney beans in chocolate cake? Who would have thought it would be freaking delicious? (I make it into cupcakes).
Mini Fruit Balls – Those little coconut balls you get from the pick and mix area of the fruit and veg section at the supermarket. This should come with a warning #fiddly – but they are super tasty!
Teeny teddies – just like tiny teddies, makes HEAPS
Cheese and bacon scrolls (including two ingredient pizza dough) I make cheesymite scrolls with this recipe too.
Banana and chia muffins – these are perfect for lunch boxes as they freeze well.
Clinker Rocky Road – do I really need to explain this??
Dark Choc Ginger Museli Bars – I swap out the ginger for extra dried apricots…
Chocolate Self Saucing pudding – can anyone say super Easy Winter Comfort Food?
Pumpkin Scones – I cut back the sugar in this recipe and use butternut pumpkin – its sweet enough and they are really good… Perfect to make the same day as the pumpkin soup (see further down).
Super Soft Bread Rolls – the soft bread tolls you get from the supermarket without the nasties…
Tenina’s Naan Bread – I would NEVER have made Naan before getting a thermomix. But its actually really easy.
We’ve since tried THIS Naan bread and it required less rising and came out a bit softer too. So we now use this one. Any leftovers we freeze and pull out when required.
Italian Bread – the first bread I ever made when I purchased a thermomix and I keep going back to it. I love whizzing up the buckwheat to make flour…
Nut free Chocolate Spread (from Quirky Cooking)- quick to make and SO yummy!
Soaked seed banana and raspberry muffins – I put white choc chips in to cut down on the ‘healthy’…
Easy Everyday White Bread – Soft, high, fluffy white loaf…
Dairy Free Raw Chocolate -make your own chocolate? Yes you can!
Gingerbread – this is almost a weekly cook for us. So yummy, a bit time consuming to roll out, but makes heaps…
Nigella’s Chocolate Chip Muffins (from the Annoyed Thyroid) – these are a quick and easy treat to whip up. They freeze well.
Meals and savoury
Thermomix ‘fried’ rice – healthier than fried, but just as tasty – a great all in one ‘stacked’ meal using the Varoma.
Buckwheat and millet, chicken and veg ‘risotto’ – I love this. I great family favourite for us.
Chicken and cashews with coconut satay sauce and coconut rice – I think this is Quirky Cookings most famous recipe and for good reason – another stacked meal using the Varoma. When Master O was allergic to nuts, we substitute the nuts for FreeNut butter. Now we can have it the whole recipe without substitutions and oh my goodness, its a winner!
Pumpkin Soup – you can use the whole pumping in this recipe. Wholefoods for the win!
Creamy chicken and brown rice soup – If you have a friend who is feeling under the weather, this is what you take around to nurture them.
Wholesome chicken nuggets – any left overs make great lunchbox filler – is you have any leftovers!
Garlic Prawns – Add more garlic. If you are using frozen prawns, drop your liquid content in this a bit. Super quick and delicious!
Moroccan Roast Carrot Dip – Great for parties – although you’ll find m,y all time favourite thermie dip (the herb and garlic dip) in the EDC, this goes in Miss E’s lunchbox all the time too.
Corn and zucchini fritters – Yum, Yum, YUM! Serve with salsa and sour cream. Delish!
Haloumi – oh yes, you CAN make cheese in your Thermomix, yes you can!
Skinny Mixers’s Butter Chicken – seriously the BEST thermomix meal ever. Our new household fave. It is so freaking delicious! It is definitely a weekend dish though, as it takes a while to make. BUT we had a heap of leftover sauce last time I made it. I froze the leftover sauce in a freezer bag, pulled it out the night before I needed it and used it as a simmer sauce with some diced chicken breast for a quick dinner. So next weekend, I am making a double-batch of the sauce to stock the freezer with. Winner!
