I'm Arwen, I'm passionate about food. I love cooking and experimenting with flavours and different cuisines from all around the world. I also have dreams of one day having my own cooking show. It was this dream and my love of food that lead me to an exciting Thermomix career in 2011.
I love using my Thermomix, often using it multiple times a day to quickly whip up delicious meals and treats at home for family and friends. I source fresh, local produce and ingredients whenever I can, including harvesting produce from my own kitchen garden. I love cooking every single element of a dish from scratch so I am guaranteed to get maximum flavour into my food.
I get a real buzz out of inspiring others to get the most out of their Thermomix by trying new recipes. I have been lucky enough to do some recipe testing & I enjoy food styling & photography. You can also find me on instragram and the Thermomix recipe community.
Chlorophyll Paste – A recipe by Tom Cockerill, Entropy Restaurant – Link to the recipe is here. This recipe is in the first In the Mix Cookbook. I was inspired to make this after attending Spa Chef Sam Gowing‘s Food as Medicine Cooking Class in Melbourne where I saw Dani Valent herself make this for us & we had a taste too. You can add the paste to scrambled eggs or pasta dough to get a gorgeous vibrant green colour.
The first step is to make 500g of ice into “snow” by using the turbo a few times. place ice into a large bowl to one side.
After heating the 750 mills of water to 70 degrees we add a truckload of greens to the TM bowl – 250g of baby spinach & up to 150g grams of green herbs – I had heaps of parsley & mint in my garden.
*Then blitz up the greens with the water for 6mins on 70 degrees, speed 10. Then pour it quickly into the bowl of ice.
you normally strain through muslin cloth – I used 2 nut bags for the straining, it’s best to drain it overnight.
The pulp is then put into ice cube trays int the freezer – that is if like me you like to use it in your green smoothies?
Then when you are making a smoothie add 1 or 2 cubes of frozen chlorophyll paste for an extra dose of green goodness – Dani advised that even 1 cube added to a glass of water mid afternoon can give you an instant green pick me up.
This recipe was written for the TM31 you have to adjust it for the Thermomix model 5 to 6 mins, 70 degrees speed 6 & then blitz at speed 10 afterwards for 30 secs or until smooth.
