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.
Have you ever been in a foreign country, looking at the English version of the menu, burst out laughing at some of the fractured translations, and had no idea what you were going to eat? Never fear, there’s a real recipe for Avocado vinaigrette here, too!

This cake is a subtly delightful combination of sweet and savoury flavours that is perfect as a pre-dinner treat with cocktails or a crisp white wine. Serves 8 to 10 as a starter with a rocket salad or more as a pre-dinner appetizer. It’s great party food too, and it won’t last long on a buffet table!
Start with really fresh artichokes from your local market or supermarket, and finish with your choice of dipping sauce. Vinaigrette is a classic, and so are hollandaise and just plain melted butter. I prefer the acidic touch of the vinaigrette, which enhances the flavour of the artichoke.
