Off on a school trip tomorrow with Miss 8 to Tiri Tiri matangi, so needed to precook a couple of meals in advance. Following the guided recipes for gluten free bread and rice salad on the thermomix is like having a chef next to you telling you what to do next! Miss 14 has been asking for the gluten free chia and pepita loaf since we last tried it at the Thermomix course a couple of weeks ago and it doesn’t disappoint. It has the texture of vogels bread and toasted it will be even scrummier. Even though it would be easy enough to make up a rice salad without the thermomix, the advantage is that while the rice cooks in the bowl, the vegetables and eggs steam in the Varoma tray. This salad is topped with fresh herbs, tomatoes, olive oil and lemon juice but any light dressing or combination of vegetables could be substituted. We are loving all the whole foods we are now eating and can’t remember the last time I put a packet of biscuits in my shopping trolley. Lasagne also made for tonight’s dinner, bechemal sauce was made yesterday in the thermomix and refrigerated so only had to make the meat sauce today.
