Yes the name of this recipe is a link to one of my favourite childhood books by Dr Suess. After eating this fritatta I’m sure you would say you like to eat green eggs & ham (or bacon) anywhere. This is a recipe that is just in my brain & you can use any vegetables or any cheese, perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner, great for lunch boxes too – See my live face book video of me making the dish here. I’d love to know any of your variations, I sometimes make a fritata with smoked salmon as well .
1 large sweet potato roughly cubed (no need to peel)
4 rashers of bacon
1 red onion sliced
5 sprigs fresh parsley
2 cloves garlic
100g spinach or silver beet leaves
250g cream or greek yoghurt
salt & pepper to taste
200g feta cheese
Turn the oven on to 180 degrees & in your baking dish roast your sweet potato, onion & bacon rashers, you don't want to over cook the bacon & the sweet potato should be just cooked through.
Place garlic & parsley into the TM bowl & chop for 2 secs speed 7. Add the spinach & chop roughly for 3 secs speed 5.5 - you may need to use your spatula to help push all the leaves into the blades.
Add the eggs, cream & salt & pepper & mix for 5 secs speed 4. Spread the mixture over the roasted sweet potato & bacon. Crumble over the feta cheese & return to the oven to bake for approx 20 mins or until golden.
I grow rhubarb, I don’t do anything to it it just grows – that’s my favourite kind of gardening!! Maybe it grows so well because I got the original plant from my green thumb Mum? Anyway I have so much of it I am always on the hunt for a good rhubarb recipe either sweet or savoury, and I will upload more of my favourite rhubarb recipes soon – however this Rhubarb Crumble Muffin recipe is a regular because it is so easy & we normally have all the ingredients available. Watch me make them in my live facebook video.
You can replace some or all of the rhubarb with apple if you wish.
220 grams Spelt Flour (white or whole), Or plain white flour or ½ of each
2 teaspoons baking powder
120 grams Rapdura Sugar, Or normal sugar
150 grams trimmed rhubarb
100 grams buttermilk, Or plain yoghurt or milk
60 grams coconut oil, Or vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon ground
Optional Crumble Topping
2 tablespoons Butter
2 tablespoons Shredded coconut
2 tablespoons almonds, or hazelnuts
½ teaspoon cinnamon ground
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Place rhubarb into TM bowl 1 sec speed 6. Scrape out of the bowl & set aside. No need to clean the bowl.
Add all the wet ingredients & sugar & process for 5 secs speed 5.
Add flour & baking powder & rhubarb process 3 secs on speed 5 till just incorporated.
Scrape mixture into paper muffins cases.
Make optional topping as per below if you want to.
Sprinkle with optional crumble topping if desired. (No need to clean the bowl after making the muffin mixture- place all the crumble topping ingredients into the TM bowl [locked] & turbo a couple of times, you still want them still a bit chunky. Sprinkle a little on top of each of each muffin.)
Wow, I can not believe how much fun we had in Las Vegas for our Thermomix reward, trip, I did not expect to visit Vegas but if I did get to go I had 2 things on the list to do see the Grand Canyon & see the Cirque du Soleil show O & both of these activities just happened to be included in this amazing trip. We were lucky enough to stay at The Cosmopolitan right next to the famous Bellagio, with magnificent views of the Bellagio fountain. After exploring some of the other hotels I’m sure we stayed at the best one on the strip! Yes it is a long trip over but it was worth it, it was so fantastic to meet up again with fellow Thermomix consultants we met at the Paris reward trip last year & others we have met at previous Thermofest trips. This time there were about 80 of us all together including group leaders & admin staff.
How Ironic to be staying so close to the fake Eiffel Tower in Vegas, when last year we stayed close to the real one in Paris at the Emerald Class Trip.
At check in room, we were provided some nibbles & cool drinks. Then up to our amazing room on level 52! What a view & the fountain put on a display straight away, I had a quick look around outside & around the facilities before getting ready for our first event, a cocktail party, complete with a welcome green Thermomix themed cocktail, there were lots of drinks but not too much food just some small bites. A few people went out for dinner & some went to try their luck at winning some money in Vegas.
The famous night club Marquee opened at 10.30pm we had free entry because we were staying at The Cosmopolitan, only a couple of us went up & had a bit of a dance & a looksie, it was very busy & we later found out that in the off season it is only open Friday – Monday night. You could buy a glass of wine for $12 or a bottle of wine for $395, when we asked about this apparently the bottle secured you a poolside table & table service as well.Completely jet lagged we got into bed very late or should I say early on Tues morning.
Executive Chef at The Cosmopolitan Matt Crane
The buffet breakfast at the wicked spoon provides so many options it was so hard to choose – even sorbet for breakfast! There was an omelette station, with anything & everything you could imagine, then in a room just off the restaurant, we had our first training session on social media with Scott Cramer from Multi Brain. Then it was so exciting to have a chat with Executive Chef at The Cosmopolitan Matt Crane & even better he gave a tour of The Cosmopolitan restaurants & behind the scenes in the kitchens, including the pastry area with Executive Pastry Chef Vincent Pilon. (Check out his awesome instagram account here.)
After lunch at the wicked spoon we had a little bit of free time before meeting our transfer to the helicopters.
A flight for 13 helicopters into the Grand Canyon, we were all so excited & I loved that they had music playing in our headsets. (It stopped when someone wanted to talk though)
I had tears of joy streaming down my face as we entered the Canyon.
This is one of the first recipes I added to the Thermomix recipe community around 6.5 years ago & it has been extremely popular – of course you can add chicken to it if you prefer, it’s great to grow my own lime leaves too. You can store lime leaves, chillies & coriander roots in the freezer, so you have most of the ingredients ready to go for an easy week night dinner packed full of flavour. It’s delicious served with my coconut rice recipe too – if you are making the coconut rice recipe in the Model 5 you need to add more liquid either coconut cream or water to take it up to the 1200g marker & it’s a bonus you can steam more veggies on top of the rice while it’s steaming! Or if you really want to pack in more veggies why not serve it with my roasted cauliflower “rice” recipe. For more great vegetarian recipe ideas click here.
Could the world possibly need another whole orange cake recipe? I’m sure this popular recipe that has been tweaked many times over so here is my version to join all the others. The original recipes had the oranges being boiled for about 1 hour, I just love how the Thermomix makes this such an easy recipe but whizzing up the almonds into almond meal & whizzing up the whole oranges, plus it’s a great one for all those that love gluten free food.
