If you have food allergies, want or need to eat gluten-free foods or have decided to join the growing raw food movement, Thermomix can be a precious tool. Since you’re cooking from scratch and preparing your own ingredients, you can be sure of everything that’s in the food you eat — and what’s not in it.
If you’re going Raw:
In your Thermomix you can create instant salads and Australian nutritionist Cyndi O’Meara‘s raw power breakfast, CADA. Raw soups can be warmed to 37°C if desired. You can grind nuts and spices and make raw nut butters. Thermomix is the perfect tool for blending to utter smoothness, as well as being able to heat and stir lumpy or smooth dishes at precise temperatures.
If you’re gluten intolerant:
Thermomix grinds so well, you can make your own flours from corn, rice, lentils, and chick peas, to name just a few. Since the bowl and blade are made from dishwasher-safe stainless steel they’re easy to clean so you can be sure there’s no gluten in the bowl or on the blade.
There are lots of Thermomix fans with blogs on the web, and many of them offer specialised recipes for gluten intolerances, allergies and raw diets. Among them are these superb blogs:
