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!!

Arwen’s Thermo Pics | Hobart Thermomix Consultant -Vegetable Stock Paste

Day 1: Vegetable Stock Paste

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)

Arwen’s Thermo Pics | Hobart Thermomix Consultant - Hainanese Chicken Rice

Sophia’s Kitchen recipe for Hainanese Chicken Rice

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.)

Arwen’s Thermo Pics | Hobart Thermomix Consultant - Shredded Chicken Salad

DAY 3: WEDNESDAY Use any leftover steamed chicken breasts to make shredded chicken on reverse speed 4 for 2 secs.

Tandoori Curry Paste

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.

Souper Favourite Thermomix Soups

Do you love soup? I most certainly do, however my hubby is not a fan of soups so a lot of the time, I will have a soup for breakfast and or lunch, sometimes I make a really thick & chunky soup & I tell my hubby it’s a “casserole” 🙂

Chicken Soup

Soups were a regular occurrence in our household growing up & Mum used to make us the most delicious lamb, barley & vegetable soup. My guilty pleasure was a tinned tomato soup served with cracked pepper, crumbled feta & fresh basil leaves! Now I just make my own tomato soup from fresh tomatoes, it only takes about 10 mins in the Thermomix & is so delicious! Anyway because winter is normally the best time to enjoy soups & I wanted to share some of my favourite recipes, to give you some inspiration & ideas.

Tomato soup only takes 15 mins to make & you can pimp it to taste even better – like adding pepper berry oil & or feta cheese!! YUM!!

Obviously start with the best fresh ingredients you can get, making your own stock will give you the best flavour or using some stock paste that you make in the Thermomix. You can make veggie, chicken or beef stock paste very easily, these recipes come with your Thermomix and are so handy to have in your fridge or freezer to give a flavour boost to any soup or casserole. They have a lot of salt in them to help preserve them & to bring out the flavour of your dish. The Thermomix is so perfect for making soups, everything in the one bowl, the chopping, sautéing, cooking, stirring & then pureeing.

Coconut Lemon Chicken Soup 2

Quirky Cooking’s Coconut Lemon Chicken Soup This is my go to soup is anyone is feeling slightly unwell, so quick easy & nourishing & I always love squeezing lemon juice into most of my soups too! (Plus I’m so excited that Jo Whitton from Quirky Cooking loved my photo of her soup so much she bought it to use on her website!) The other very popular soup recipe by Jo is her Creamy Chicken & Brown Rice Soup, put this on your winter cooking list if it isn’t already!

Pumpkin soup

George Calombaris’ Pumpkin Soup with Virtual Bacon Dust from In the Mix Cookbook by Dani Valent. This is my favourite Pumpkin Soup recipe by far, so creamy & delicious. I even leave the skin on my butternut pumpkin because the Thermomix is so awesome at blending it all up. The Virtual bacon dust is made from toasted & caramelised sesame seeds with brown sugar & Japanese stock powder (dashi) I also made it replacing the dashi with dried porcini mushrooms & it was still just as yummy.

For an awesome roasted pumpkin flavour. I also love roasting a pumpkin whole along with some sweet potato, onion & garlic still in their skins. Once they have cooked you can remove the skins if you wish & then add some of your favourite stock & maybe some cream or coconut cream, once you have cooked it all then puree till smooth.

Cauliflower Soup

Peter Gilmore’s Cauliflower Soup from In the Mix 2 Cookbook, in the book it is served with seared scallops & fresh truffle, but it is still absolutely amazing even with out the scallops & truffle. Even just using some truffle oil & or truffle salt if you have it, will take it to the next level.

Or if you might like a mix of the two In the Mix Cookbook Recipes concepts & try the Cauliflower Soup with Bacon Dust – the bacon is real in this recipe!

Beetroot Soup

My beetroot soup recipe is coming soon, I use fresh beetroot, fennel & cabbage and serve it with homemade yoghurt & horseradish with a bit of smoked salmon if you want to make it a bit fancy for guests.

Chorizo Soup

I love the smoky spicy flavour of chorizo & any recipe that has it is as an ingredient is always so delicious – This is the Mexican Black Bean & Chorizo Soup another awesome recipe by Jo Whitton from Quirky Cooking.

Another chorizo soup I love is with chunks of chorizo, kale & sweet potato YUM!

In my minestrone soup, I use as much veggies from the garden as I can, I loosely use Jamie Oliver’s recipe (I leave out the pasta) & it’s delicious with or with out some parmesan cheese on top!

Josh Lopez’s Charred Sweet Corn Soup with Hens Egg, Pecorino Crumble, Coriander, I was so lucky to see Josh make this in front of us at Thermofest at the Goldcoast March 2015.

The pea soup from The Devil of a Cookbook is also amazing & speaking of peas – how good is a pea & ham soup too?!
