Arwen’s Thermo Pics 30 Day Challenge
Many years ago I gave my new customers the Thermomix 30 Day Challenge. Because it is my 10 year Thermoversary I wanted to revamp the challenge to bring it up to date to the new model TM6 & to give back to my awesome Thermomix customers as I share my favourite recipes & Thermomix tips & tricks. You can start the challenge at anytime. I will be starting on the 1st of November with facebook live videos everyday too.
DO YOU ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE? To try 1 new thing a day with the Thermomix, if you miss a day you can make it up on a different day & you can swap the days around if you need to as well. Over the 30 days we want to use all the parts of the Thermomix and as many functions as we can. These recipes are just suggestions so please adapt to suit your own eating style. I will also be introducing you to my favourite Thermoxers along the way too!!
DAY 1: MONDAY Have you got some vegetable stock paste in the fridge? If not make some today or try a new stock you haven’t made before a chicken, mushroom or beef.
Today is the perfect day to practice your menu planning using cookidoo – including using the shopping list feature. (Please contact me if you need help with this. I do provided training at all my deliveries & cooking experiences too)
DAY 2: TUESDAY Have you tried steaming a whole chicken? You can simply place 1 litre of boiling water into the TM bowl & place the chicken into the varoma with any of your favourite flavours in & around the chicken. There are many great recipes for Hainanese Chicken Rice including the recipes by Jo Whitton in your Life Changing Food Cookbook. (This cookbook is also available as an App & it has a few of my food photos!!) Dani Valent has a wonderful video on steaming chicken & making a chicken stock with the bones which is something I do quite regularly. (I also add water to the bowl after making the dog food & whizz it up to clean the bowl to make a puppuccino for my dog Jet.)
DAY 3: WEDNESDAY Use any leftover steamed chicken breasts to make shredded chicken on reverse speed 4 for 2 secs. Use in salads sandwiches/wraps or soups. If you are vegetarian you might like to make the pulled jackfruit recipe. Use the chicken stock to make a soup or try Arwen’s Flu Fighter Chicken Soup.
Day 4: THURSDAY Charlie’s wrap recipe or try Kel’s gluten free wrap recipe.
Day 5: FRIDAY FAKEAWAY Thermie Green Chicken Curry or Thermie Green Vegetable Curry or find a Thai curry style recipe on cookidoo.
Day 6: SATURDAY Weekend breakfast workshop: Try my favourite steamed omelette recipe or use the egg boiler mode for boiled eggs just the way you like them. Maybe you want to try the poached eggs with the blade cover recipe. And how about some hollandaise sauce to go with that?
Day 7: SUNDAY Tandoori Curry Paste – This is how I change the recipe: I like to heat up the whole spices in the Thermomix for 3 mins Varoma speed 1. Allow the spices to cool then mill the spices on speed 10 for 1 min. Set aside. Place the garlic & ginger into the TM bowl & chop for 5 secs speed 7. Scrape down the sides of the bowl add 50g of the oil & cook for 5 mins Varoma temperature speed 1. Allow to cool before adding all the remaining ingredients including the milled spices & whizz it all up for 30 secs speed 10 scrape down the sides of the bowl & repeat if needed. Store in 100g portions in the fridge for 1 month or in the freezer for longer.
Day 8: MEATLESS MONDAY Thermie Green Quiche
Day 9: TUESDAY Cheats Easy Chicken Curry (You can also use other vegetables instead of the chicken if you prefer)
Day 10: WEDNESDAY Coconut Rice
Day 11: THURSDAY Roasted Cauliflower “Rice”
