The recipes we chose this week are:
Recipe 1 – Healthy Thermomix Acai Bowl (from Thermobliss)
Acai bowls are a huge craze throughout the world. Using the Amazonian Acai berry these antioxidant filled, fruity bowls of deliciousness can set you back a pretty penny at your local hipster joint. As with so many things you can make your own from home with this delicious Thermomix recipe. This recipe makes 2 big bowls or 4 small bowls and is so refreshing. We followed the recipe to a tee however we left out the honey as the berries and frozen banana was sweet enough. You can also have heaps of fun with the toppings.
Recipe 2 – Pão de Queijo or Brazilian Cheese Bread (from Gastromony)
These are amazing! Crunchy on the outside and soft and stretchy on the inside. This traditional Brazilian recipe is made grain free as it uses tapioca starch. It makes around thirty small cheese puffs. They’re best eaten fresh however you can re-heat and they’re still great. Word of warning though, as they are a ‘puff’ steam can build up inside so be careful when you re-heat these, I recommend tearing them apart rather than biting into it to avoid burning your mouth.
We tweaked this recipe quite a bit. I found we needed to almost double the tapioca starch. We ended up using 220g milk and 500g of tapioca starch.
When adding the tapioca starch we added 250g and blitzed on speed 5 for 10 seconds then added another 250g of tapioca starch and mix on speed 5 for 10 seconds.
Then I followed the rest f the recipe as per instructions.
Recipe 3 – Thermomix Chimichurri Sauce
Chimichurri sauce is an absolute favourite in our house, throughout Brazil BBQ meat is a big deal. They keep the meat part pretty simple but this sauce makes any BBQ’d meat pop. It’s fresh and tart (due to the vinegar) and is a refreshing change to the sweet and sticky sauces usually associated with BBQ.
We originally featured the Thermomix Chimichurri Sauce recipe with an Argentinian beef in the BBQ issue of The 4 Blades Magazine, you can now find the sauce on the blog.
Here are some cool tips from this podcast…
- When using powder (like Acai) we like to put it on after something a bit bulkier to stop it sticking to the bottom of the bowl.
- Use the scale function of your Thermomix by placing any bowl on top of the lid and pressing the ‘scales’ button to tare it.
