All-in-one recipes

The innovative, multi-level functionality of your Thermomix® enables you to prepare food in different ways. With our all-in-one recipes, you can cook multiple components at once by using the Thermomix® bowl, simmering basket, Varoma dish and Varoma tray together. Steam delicate parcels of fish and vegetables in the Varoma while rice cooks in the simmering basket and a warming soup simmers underneath. Try placing potatoes in the simmering basket, steaming meat in the Varoma, and making a flavourful sauce in the bowl. You can even cook a dessert at the same time as your main! Whichever recipe you choose will result in a full meal, all ready at the same time, with minimal washing up. Not sure where to begin? Our handy Guided Cooking function enables you to follow the step-by-step instructions to prepare a recipe, letting Thermomix® do the hard work.

Journey to Asia

Multi-level cooking is a great way to explore different cuisines from the comfort of your own kitchen. Asian cuisine in particular lends itself to cooking multiple elements of a meal at once. There are recipes from Thailand, China, Japan, Indonesia and more on Cookidoo®, so take a look and get started.

Traditional Asian cuisine

The art of steaming

Steaming is a popular way to cook food across Asia, and it's a technique that's rooted in tradition.

Because it doesn't require any fat, steaming is one of the healthiest methods of cooking. Steamed meat and fish is tender and moist, and vegetables remain brightly coloured and full of flavour. Food retains valuable nutrients which can get lost after boiling or poaching, so it's also better for you. Make steaming part of your daily Thermomix® cooking and enjoy great tasting, healthier food, without any of the hassle.
