These St Patrick's Day Thermomix recipes will bring you the luck of the Irish!
With St Patrick’s Day on the horizon we want to share three new delicious recipes that you can actually enjoy all year round, but will be good St Patrick’s Day Thermomix recipes for a bit of (green!) fun on St Patrick’s Day.
The recipes we chose this week are:
Recipe 1 – Irish Brown Bread (from The 4 Blades)
Irish Brown Bread has been a staple in Ireland for a long time. It dates back to a time when the wholemeal ‘brown' flour was seen as the ‘poor' flour, and the bread was part of the rations. There are many different recipes out there for Irish Brown Bread, but this very simple recipe (with only 5 ingredients!) has been shared with us by Bec's friend Laura. The end product smells like a scone and tastes like a creamy dense bread. It is a great option for using up your buttermilk after making your own butter.
Recipe 2 – Fiddle-de-dee Potatoes (from The 4 Blades)
So here is the basic premise of this recipe: you steam up some jacket potatoes, you squish them, you let them get crispy in the oven, you cover them with herbed cheese, let the cheese melt and go crispy and then you devour them. Pretty good, right? They look deliciously St Patrick’s Day appropriate due to the green hue of the melted herbed cheese. We think you’ll love these as a simple vegetarian dinner, or a yummy side dish.
Recipe 3 – Spinach & Feta Grain Free Pancakes (from The 4 Blades)
We love that these are easy to munch on, and a great way to get a serve of greens first thing in the morning. They have a lovely savoury taste, enhanced by the basil and feta. They don’t HAVE to be made grain free at all. Call them green pancakes, call them spinach & feta pancakes, heck… call them Shrek pancakes (or maybe Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!), but definitely give them a go!
