Do you use all four levels of your Thermomix®? If not, you're missing out! Have a look at our Great Taste on Every Level collection and try out some of the recipes that show the benefits of multi-level cooking with Thermomix®.
As well as being a great way to cook delicate food such as fish and seafood, steaming is also a fantastic way to cook bold, vibrant dishes bursting with flavour.
As an added bonus, steaming over a soup or sauce means any juices that drip down from the food in the Varoma will add additional flavour to what’s cooking in the mixing bowl!
Once you’ve tried fluffy steamed couscous, you’ll never go back to following the basic preparation instructions on the packet; especially if you steam it over a flavourful broth. Bread and cake both develop a beautifully soft and tender crumb when steamed, and lasagne cooked in the Varoma produces a creamier alternative to the traditional baked version.
The gentle cooking method preserves nutrients and enables you to cook with less fat. Steaming is a great, healthy way to prepare not only fish and vegetables, but also grains, meat and fruit.
Whenever you cook something that generates steam, whether it’s a soup, a sauce or a stew, you can add ingredients to the simmering basket or Varoma to cook or reheat them at the same time. Cookidoo® has several recipes to cook multiple courses at once, with some even including dessert! Try Butternut Squash Soup, Fish with Rice and Vegetables, and Apple and Pear Crumble; or Minestrone, Pork Roll and Steamed Raspberry Puddings, and enjoy a delicious dinner with minimal washing up to do afterwards.
From Chinese dim sum to British Sticky Toffee Puddings and Polish Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, Cookidoo® will take you on a journey of discovery around the world.
