Super simple morning oatmeal in Thermomix. Simply insert Cook-key and let Thermomix guide you to perfect oats while you are half-asleep. Our oats are especially good because of the ingredients: homemade coconut milk and One Degree sprouted rolled oats. Today we top with farmer market strawberries.

Thermomix Cooking Experience

I thoroughly enjoy sharing Thermomix with others. Gathering around Thermomix and cooking together fills me up with energy and joy. I love Thermomix and want to share it with others. Having a Thermomix feels like a lifestyle upgrade.

Today we made breakfast scones from the US Cookidoo platform and chickpea curry from
The Australian Cookidoo platform. Both recipes are guided and walk you step-by -step from
beggining to end.

Teatime Today: hot chocolate

325 grams of half homemade almond and half homemade coconut milk.
Heat 80 degrees, 4 minutes, speed 4
Froth by slowly turning up to speed 9 for 20 seconds
Today I added cinnamon and cardamom

Silky Cauliflower Soup

It’s so simple to make delicious and silky soups with Thermomix. There are several Cookidoo guided recipes that will walk you step-by-step through such soups. It’s like having a personal chef, yet you get to enjoy the process and product. Tonight, I made a simple cauliflower soup I have been making for years. There really is no recipe. Thermomix sautées an onion in some ghee. Then a head of cauliflower along with water and homemade veggie stock paste is added. Everything cooks while I tend to chores. When Thermomix signals, I return to blend the soup to this silky texture. Fresh farmers market produce turns into perfect and inexpensive meals made effortlessly. Then, there is little to clean up because a drop of soap with some water and blends and cleans the bowl.

It’s so easy to make homemade everything with Thermomix
