- I am a huge fan of Alice Zaslavsky. You may have already seen her Cheesy Quinoa Bites and excellent chat on feeding kids on my site! I'm now also enjoying diving into her magnificent book, In Praise of Veg. This recipe is from there. Alice doesn't write Thermomix methods but she certainly knows her away around a TM and heartily agreed with me when I pointed out that this beetroot and cauliflower soup is made so much easier when the Thermomix is used to help with prep!
- During lockdown, when I was shopping for my parents, they always put kohlrabi on their shopping list. This tart, earthy yet slightly sweet member of the cabbage family isn’t a vegetable I often bought, but I started getting one for them and one for me, gaining a new appreciation for it along the way.
- I was thrilled to learn that this cocktail of mine (the original version without finger lime) has been shortlisted for the Thermomix Recipe Hall of Fame! Have you made it? The zesty cooler has been one of the smash hits from my Entertaining cookbook, where it stars in the Mexican chapter.
- Eggnog is a classic Christmas drink made with a custard base. Naturally, chocolate queen Kirsten Tibballs’ recipe has a chocolate element to make it even more delicious. Kirsten uses white chocolate to flavour and thicken the base, plus milk chocolate to line the rim of the glass. I love eggnog with hazelnutty Frangelico but you don’t have to add the booze at all. See the Tips for brunch ideas with leftover eggnog.
