The BLUE Team (Bec) – Full ‘o’ Veggies Thermomix Curried Sausages

$10 on the nose! Like the allocated funds, this recipe squeezes every bit of value out of your Thermomix as well.

When we steamed our sausages the skins came right off which we didn’t expect. We loved it as we wanted to remove the skins before putting them in the curry so another little bonus of Thermomix cooking!
