Caramelised onions

Caramelised onions

It’s pouring with rain outside  and there’s nothing to do than put on a movie and get the thermomix cooking something while we watch . Caramelised onions are easy to make in the thermomix . Around  6 onions peeled and sliced into rings , cook in thermomix with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for 30 minutes . Add 20g brown  sugar ( reduced from 75g in recipe as a few suggested in the comments section )  and cook for further 5 minutes and they’re ready to eat .  Recipe link above . Makes a decent jar full.

Perfect with Sunday sausage lunch .Miss 16 and Miss 10 loved the onions with the sausage in bread , and didn’t even need tomato sauce .

hint – place thermomix under extractor fan to minimise cooking vinegar smell.

Ordered some cookbooks from the online store. Here they are, super excited to see recipes for wonton pastries and dumplings. Have relatives visiting no time to try them out yet  but after Christmas going to have some more fun testing these recipes.

Time to try it out

Brocoli carrot apple and nut yum
Spring cleansing salad yummy

After all the safety instructions and a run through of all the significant features, Nicola ( our TM consultant ) shows me how to make vegetable stock, so easy and fast. Then I’m on my own. What shall I try first. I picked a salad from the thermomix recipe community page. A spring cleansing salad. Mmmm, raw broccoli, carrot and apple. Here it is minutes later. Lunch done!
