Using your Varoma pt 3 | Thermomix uses

Just a quick meal tonight for my 3 small people. Cooking rice which will steam our hedgehog meatballs and reheat the pasta sauce I made earlier in the day at the same time. 
Think outside the square with your varoma and try to use it every week at least twice!

Afternoon 'pick-me-up' juice in the Thermomix

I was talking to someone at a demo recently about juicing with the Thermomix....something I didn't really do until about 6 months ago. 

This is one of my FAVOURITE ones to make...for the colour and the health aspects. What juices do you like to make?

{ Afternoon pick me up }

1/2 beetroot
1 apple
1 orange
1 lemon
handful of raspberries
handful of ice
1 MC water 

Blend on speed 9 for 1-2 minutes.

Citrus Dust in the Thermomix

Well THAT was easy!! 

I dehydrated the peel from frozen, on a tray in the oven on around 70 degrees for 3-4 hours. Check if it snaps to see if it is dry enough. Then blitz on speed 6-7 for around 10 seconds.

Can't wait to add this to a few things for a bit of citrus zing!!

Sometimes you just feel like being "cheffy" (is that even a word?)

Non-food uses for Thermomix | How does your garden grow?

Today at a demo we were talking about all the non-food things you can make in your Thermomix. I came home and made boiled eggs for lunch and sat looking at the eggshells in the basket...then remembered I could grind these up and add them to my garden soil! Apparently my tomatoes are going to love this!!! Another bonus is it gives your bowl a wonderful CLEAN!

6 egg shells
1 MC of water
30 seconds, speed 9
Add water and she'll grit to your plants.

What do you think?
