Chicken and cashews

This Chicken and Cashews recipe from the Everyday Cooking for Thermomix Families TM5 is so easy to make and is just so yum!

I absolutely love using my Varoma and really want to get more owners cooking with their Varoma more often. This is one dish that will make that happen!

The first step is making the garlic and ginger mixture to coat the chicken. Then you add the rice in the simmering basket into the bowl. Not washing the bowl not only means less clean up but also means a flavoursome rice. 

While you’re cooking the rice in the simmering basket you are steaming the chicken and veggies in the Varoma on top.

Once the chicken is cooked you can make the sauce with 250g of the reserved steaming liquid. So once again those beautiful flavours are being retained 🙂

The total cooking time for this recipe is 55min and it’s such a great all in one recipe that is made even easier by using the recipe chip. I’m so glad this recipe made it onto the new chip so TM5 owners are no longer missing out on this yummy dish!

Salmon Veloute


The Salmon Velouté meal is a variation of the Chicken Velouté meal in the Basic Cookbook.

The VeloutĂ© meal is an all in one meal made in your Thermomix using the Varoma. You make the soup in the bowl and steam the chicken or salmon in the Varoma with the veggies. 

The zucchini and carrots are peeled tagliatelle style with a vegetable peeler which helps them steam quickly and also adds to the look of the dish.

Then you save some of the soup to make the creamy sauce. The word velouté is French for velvet and perfect describes the sauce.

To make the salmon variation you replace the tarragon with dill and adjust the cooking time. You will find the variation under the tips in the cookbook and you can also access it on the recipe chip.

The velouté meal is a demo menu option and is a great way to really see the Thermomix in action. Contact your consultant to book a demo 🙂

Chorizo and chicken pasta


 I haven’t eaten pasta for awhile but I couldn’t resist making this recipe for Chorizo and Chicken Pasta from the new Everyday Cooking for Thermomix Families TM5 cookbook and recipe chip.

The chorizo is cooked in oil for 6 minutes on the reverse wooden spoon. I honestly would’ve been happy just eating this! It was perfectly cooked and I will definitely make it again when I’m doing an antipasto spread 🙂

The next step is adding all the veggies which get chopped into perfectly hidden veg for the kiddies!

The chicken cooks on top in the Varoma and then you add the pasta shells for the last ten minutes. This is a great all in one meal that serves 6 (or three very hungry adults!)

Chicken broth with angel hair pasta


 I felt like I was coming down with something this weekend and when I woke up this morning I knew I was sick. I have a throat infection so while I still have my appetite I also have a sore throat which limits my food choices.

So I thought I would finally try the Traditional Chicken Broth with Angel Hair Pasta from the Cooking for Me and You cookbook. Nothing soothes like a warm nourishing bowl of soup and this recipe was just what the doctor ordered 🙂

Any small cuts of chicken on the bone can be used in this recipe and any leftover broth can be used in risotto recipes in place of stock paste and water.
