Inspired by ThermoHubby John’s Northwestern Spanish musings, this recipe takes about a minute to make in your Thermomix. To keep it light I used only a small amount of olive oil. And because we used no cheese, this pesto happens to be dairy free. Serve it with fresh trout, salmon, or monkfish, or mix it into some fresh Thermomix pasta. The subtle taste of orange really lifts the flavour of the wild garlic, and the ensemble is enhanced by the almonds. Delicious!
This is one of my all-time favourite soups, not only because it carries the sentimental value of having been Thermomix demonstration soup recipe for UK Thermomix, but because I just love the way the red pepper taste blends with the tomato. And the pinch of cayenne pepper really lifts the whole soup. You can optimise the use of your Thermomix by steaming meat and vegetables in the Varoma while your soup cooks for up to 30 minutes before blending.
A totally healthy alternative to traditional egg-based mayo, Lunchbox Doctor’s Avocado Mayonnaise is fast and easy to make in the Thermomix. Eat it on its own, dollop it on a burger, slather it on a sandwich, serve it as a dip with crudités and/or savoury crackers, enjoy!
