You know I love chorizo, right? I also love using up ingredients, a bit of thriftiness and not throwing much away. A Cheesy Chorizo Crustless Quiche like this one, which comes with Thermomix and conventional instructions, is quick to make.
A crustless quiche can also use up a lot of what you may have in the fridge and is very versatile as you can add the ingredients you fancy….
Last year the Feisty Tapas crew went crazy for lime pickle for the Christmas makes. Preparing lime pickle the traditional way is a lengthy process so this year I have put my research hat on (doesn’t it look cute?) to see if we could speed up the process. A lot of reading and notes later, yes we can! It may not be the authentic way of doing it but it has all the flavour and you can do it in no time ready for curry night or to surprise a friend or loved one if they are the ones cooking you the curry, just remember it’s best if you let it mature for a week before eating, let those flavours combine.
Hello! Here I am again. Being perfectly imperfect. Did you read last week’s Thermomix recipe post? No? Make sure you do! But make sure you read this one too and then add it to this week’s menu plan. Julie’s Thermomix Mexican Bean Soup is really good and really worth making now that the weather has turned bitterly cold….
I had to clear my ailing MacBook the other day as it needed fixing by
I have a very exciting freebie for those of you who are Thermomix owners, a free printable. I love printables! Above all now that I have a fully working printer again. These are Feisty Tapas’ Thermorules. These are things so built-in now that I do them without thinking.
Print it, frame it, place it in your kitchen, make guests use it.…
It was the fantastic Dave who put me onto a moist recipe for chocolate cake last week, it used beetroot and I just had to try it! I reduced the sugar a fair bit and adapted it to my use my Thermomix. This Dairy Free Chocolate Beetroot Cake is delicious and easy peasy….
I had just been making the softest Japanese Cotton Cheesecake with the Thermomix when a similar-looking recipe popped up on my Instagram feed, this time using an ingredient I had never used: quark cheese but not the Thermomix. I had to try it. I had to try to convert it to Thermie. In fact, I once made both the Cotton Cheesecake and the Quark Cacke in one day and gave them out to try to friends, the winner was the Quark Cake and the reason I was given: the extra lemony taste. Made in the Thermomix, it’s easy peasy….
This is the taste of my childhood. Growing up in Spain, medias noches (half moons) were always present at birthday parties, filled with ham and cheese, chorizo, whatever savouries you can think of. It’s a slightly sweet bread (a bit along the lines of brioche). On the other hand, the bollos suizos (bollos de leche as they are known where I grew up) have a sugary topping and are a classic of Spanish confiterías and they were my favourites as a child (even over croissants). My parents still bring me a couple to the airport when they pick me up when I go visit in Spain (of course I am now 41 and it’s the little Tapita who ends up eating them)….
Back in December 2014 I had the chance to organise and attend a cooking Christmas party at the fantastic Cambridge Cookery School, the chosen theme was Middle Eastern and Sook food. Ever since then I’ve been wanting to adapt these Za’atar Flat Breads to the Thermomix as it is quite a wet dough and, let’s just face it, the Thermomix makes light work of kneading….
There has been a lot of talk about Thermomix Japanese Cotton Cheesecake in my Thermomix Owners UK Facebook group ever since Patricia posted a photo of hers (which she got from the Webos Fritos blog).
I absolutely adore this cake, it is not a cheesecake per se, the cotton part refers to its amazing soft touch and texture. It is very hit and miss with people though, the little Tapita (now 4 and a half, yikes!) and my husband didn’t like it but a couple of the school run mums loved it.…
At this time of year I am always asked the same question: do you know a good recipe for Roscón de Reyes?…
I come from a lovely part of Spain called Galicia, full of sandy beaches and good food. Bica (pronounced bee-ka) is typical of this area and delicious dipped in coffee, which is why many coffee shops will bring you a bite (free!) if you order a coffee in the afternoon.
Yes, you read right, free!
Call it sweet tapas….
Croquetas are a very typical Spanish dish. Delicious creamy béchamel bites breadcrumbed and fried. One of those seemingly simple but rather fiddly dishes that the Thermomix and a piping bag make a breeze. The mixture needs to rest in the fridge so it’s best to prepare it the day before….
There are dishes that just take you back to your childhood, this is one of them, probably for any Spaniard. Lentejas are a classic of any Spanish household, it’s a Spanish Lentil Stew with, of course, chorizo (you wouldn’t expect any less from this blog, would you?)….
A little while ago Waitrose challenged me (the Spaniard, just in case you had forgotten) to come up with a Great British dish.
So, of course, I asked husband (the Britishman): ham, egg and chips with proper ham!, he decided….
I wrote this recipe ages ago (in fact winter 2013, no comment) but it was so delicious that my greedy blog ate it. Here goes my second attempt. Ready? Right, here we
There is a new Thermomix in town and it looks sleek!! The rumour mill had been turning endlessly for a few months and finally on the night of September 5th 2014 the announcement was made: the TM5 was a reality. Here I tell you how to buy the new Thermomix in the UK and what happens to the TM31. By the way, if you come from Portugal or Italy, you will know it as Bimby, here in the UK it’s a Thermomix (like in Spain)….
When I say Thermomix Seafood Lasagna with Beetroot Béchamel the truth is that you can totally do this without it, you just need a powerful blender to make the beetroot milk and then do everything else the conventional way. I just like making it in the Thermomix as it is so much more convenient, fast, clean and well, easy!…
Fancy a pink béchamel? Well, of course you do! This Beetroot Béchamel is amazing.
In fact, I may be a tad hooked. I know it may sound like a strange combination but it really works, think of the possibilities!…
Here is a recipe that will have most of you clicking away but I am feeling brave and posting it anyway because, when my brother and I were little, we used to beg my mother to make Chicken Liver Rice for us and now my daughter loves it and eats it so well.
