Lemony Asparagus and Broccoli Rabe Over Polenta

I have only had my Thermomix for about one year now and I don't know how I ever lived without it.  I am inspired to find new recipes, buy great ingredients and then let the Thermomix do the work for me.   I have always enjoyed going to the market and being in the kitchen, but the Thermomix adds new joy to cooking. It also frees up a lot of hands-on time.  Yesterday, I was able to play with my toddler all while the Thermomix helped me make dinner.  It chopped veggies, cooked up a garbanzo stew and whipped up creamy and comforting polenta.  If you are looking for an interesting blend of textures and a way to enjoy all the seasonal, fresh local asparagus this time of year, try this dish.  If you are looking for a good vegan supper, try this dish.  I love that I was able to pour the extra polenta into a pan for it to set; we enjoyed the polenta creamy last night and tomorrow night we can slice it into triangles and top with bolognese sauce or mushroom ragu.  

The original recipe can be found at:  Marcus Samuelsson's website has a lot of inspiring meal ideas.  

The list of ingredients and directions seem a bit intimidating, but this is all quite simple to put together.

Ingredients and Thermomix instructions will appear in the next post.

    1. It’s great that there are Thermomixrecipes all over the internet and even books that can be bought. That’s one of the first things I did before buying a Thermomix, I checked out some of the things you can make with the machine and I wasn’t disappointed.
