Chef Sam Gowing’s sunshiny salad is a rainbow on a plate. This easy, nourishing salad is a great example of her approach to healthy eating: it’s as happy as it is wholesome.
A quick, easy and healthy breakfast that also works as a jarred meal on the go. There’s the goodness of oats, nuts and chia seeds and a green boost from spinach and matcha (Japanese green tea powder).
Tofu in the Thermomix? Yes! This sesame tofu has smooth texture and subtle flavour, and it’s gluten-free and vegan too. You won’t believe how easy it is.
Perfect as a vegetarian main course and just as good as a side dish, my favourite version of Cauliflower Rice is colourful, bountiful and full of flavour. It’s flexible too: swap out the vegetables and nuts depending on what you’ve got and what’s in season. I also love to serve this as an alternative side dish with my Middle Eastern Salmon.
This classic French peasant dish is simple and clean and presents elegantly. The name translates as ‘beef on a string’ because, in the traditional version, the beef fillet is tied and suspended in a pot of simmering stock. Using Thermomix, we can get exactly the same result without any string sorcery. This is a restrained method that highlights great produce.
This recipe takes the classic Japanese combination of eggplant and miso and turns it into a sauce for steamed fish. It’s light, clean and satisfying. Use any fresh fish fillets and swap out the green vegetables as preferred. You can also make this dish with chicken – use tenderloin or sliced breast and ensure juices run clear before eating.
The first time I saw a 2-second Thermomix coleslaw I quivered with excitement. How could something so good be so easy? I’m always looking for twists on classics and that’s how I came up with this delicious pear coleslaw. The recipe also helps out with the ‘pear problem’ – they’re perfectly ripe for about five minutes then become soft!
This dairy-free smoothie recipe is Jo ‘Quirky Cooking’ Whitton’s short cut to tasty indulgence. Have it for breakfast or a nourishing and filling snack that will keep you going for hours.
The breakfast that sets the tone for a sunshiny day, using black rice and coconut milk to create a tropical breakfast that you could also eat for dessert.
