I mean I do love having a Thermomix and I have been using it almost every day. But I am not ready to tell you that it is worth the $2000 (AUD) price tag. Ask me in 2 or 3 years. If it is still going strong and I am still using it most days of the week then I might be ready to become an advocate of this expensive gadget.
So what have I made in it so far. I have tried a few recipes out of the book that comes with it and I have made a few recipes that I have found on blogs on forums. And of course I have done a lot of experimenting - because I love experimenting with food.
I have been pretty lazy with taking photos so I don't have a lot to share with you. And as for my experiments - some I am still perfecting, and some I just didn't even bother to keep notes on the ingredients.
Here is a few examples of food from my Thermomix.
|Red Lentil Curry from Thermomix "Everyday Cooking for the Family" book.|
|Served with veggies rather than rice (I kind of think of rice as empty calories).|
After it finishes cooking it pays to let it rest for 15 minutes before serving as the flavours really come together better. The recipe makes a lot of dahl and so we had plenty left for the next day when it was even more delicious!
|A few examples of the sweet vegan balls I have been making.|
|And a close up of the Hot Cocoa Fudge Babies from Chocolate Covered Katie|
|Tex Mex mix made in the Thermomix, and the creamiest whipped Avocado.|
|Chia seeds milled in the TMx, added to Soy Linseed Bread made in Bread Maker.|
