    Can someone translate the Spanish recipe?

  2. Mara August 19, 2010 at 9:57 am #

    I’m so sorry to hear that, Helene. Last year my laptop was stolen with my thermomix recipes (approx. half of them developed by me) and I still mourn them sometimes because I didn’t have a back copy of all of them.
    To Valerie, for the translation you can always use, just write down the url with the recipe. In any case, although making the sugar may be fun and all, it’s best use is for ice creams and sorbets and for that I feel that glucose is better.

    Thanks! Your site is great. I love the video links, especially the Masterchef classes.

    So many recipes. So little time.

    What… no “Thermomix” in your comment??? Have you given up on the contest Gretchen? ;)

    I’m so excited that you added my ice-cream! I’ve thanked you on my blog too! Thank you!

    I also want to try the baconnaise. I just don’t know how I’m going to render so much bacon fat at home, we eat really healthy stuff (oh, Thermomix can do such terrible stuff to your lifestyle!)

    Oh, Helene, come back already. Your Bimby fans miss you!!!!!

    Hi Mara: Yes, I’ve been absent from the blog too much lately, due to a recent house move and then helping out a sick relative. I’ll be back later today to announce the Benriner contest winner ….

    I have only had my TM31 for a couple of days. Could anyone please tell if I can cook scrambled eggs in it?

  16. ThermomixBlogger Helene October 14, 2010 at 5:47 pm #

    Hi Helen — You ask a great question. Like most of us, I think you are so excited about getting Thermomix into your kitchen that you want to try making absolutely EVERYTHING in it. Scrambled eggs present a bit of a ‘fussy’ issue — mainly in terms of clean-up under the blades. And, once you know the machine better, the finesse required for successfully scrambling eggs is more easily achieved than when you are new to it. I recommend you first read these helpful discussions about scrambling eggs — from the fabulous Thermomix forum: see this one from 2009 and this, from 2008. Hope this helps!

    Thank you Helene.

  18. Helen October 24, 2010 at 5:35 am #

    I just wanted to thank everyone, especially Helene who gives so much of her time to help out, for their valuable contributions to this site.
    Being a new TM owner, I just love that I can learn from everyones experience and have access to an array of wonderful recipes.
    Thank you all so much for your very valuable contributions and hopefully when I have more experience, I can repay you all with some amazing new recipe!
    A big THANK YOU from a TM fledgling in Australia.

    Aw thank you Helen — for the contribution you have already made to this site ;-)
    I’m glad to know that this blog has been a helpful resource. We Thermomix fans are a solid, honest, fun-loving bunch and we sure are passionate about our super kitchen machines!

    Helene, I saw a photo of an Olive, Feta Thermomix bread and I can’t find the recipe for it on your blog. I’m not too clever when it comes to computers so could you point me in the right direction please? I’d love to get into my kitchen and whip this up. Thanks.

  21. ThermomixBlogger Helene December 26, 2010 at 12:09 pm #

    Hi Cookie1 — Yes, the aromatic Olive Feta bread is also called “Mediterranean Infusion Thermomix Loaf” and can be found right here >> Next time you need it, if you can’t find this link, with this comment, you can try just clicking on the blue link in the right-hand sidebar for “bread” and it will be easy to find from there. Or, use the navigation bar at top of the page and look under “recipes” where it says “bread”. Another way to find it would be to use the search function at the top right sidebar and type in the words “feta”, “olive” and bread”. (So many ways to get the same result… now I have probably confused you, rather than helped you!) Have fun — cheers,

    Hi, Helene, can’t see a wonderful and super easy recipe for Spanish Gazpacho, which is a chilled vegetable soup, perfect for hot weather.

    The base is 1kg ripe tomatoes (the riper the better). Wash and remove stems.
    Half a small green pepper. Wash and take out the seeds and remove the stem.
    Half a cucumber — Peel
    Half medium sized onion — Peel
    1 clove of garlic
    Place all the above ingredients in the Thermomix and blend on speed 6 for about 40 seconds. Add some ice cubes (8 or 10) and blend 2 mins speed 10. Add salt to taste, vinegar (approx 1 ounce) and olive oil (approx 2 ounces). Blend together for another 5 seconds on speed 3. Serve.

    This is the basic recipe, you can then add water if you like it thinner, stale bread if you like it thicker, more vinegar if you like it stronger, blend it for longer/less time, all depending on individual tastes. My children love it, and will drink it in a chilled long glass when the summers get really hot. My 7 year old son makes it on his own (under my supervision of course), which is one of the wonders of the TM, children can cook anything!

    THAAAANK YOU Margarita, for this lovely recipe! It’s ‘simple’, clear, and quick! (A link to your Gazpacho has been added to the list above.) I love Gazpacho because my mother made it often when I was a child, but I’ve been slow to try it in Thermomix, only because there are so many other recipes to try, and not enough hours! Thanks for taking the time to type this into a comment — I know there will be other readers here keen to try it. (After I make it for myself, I will come back to change your ounces to grams/tablespoons, as that is what we are mostly using.) Best wishes and many thanks for your input!
