Remember this? An Aussie just had to set it right. Don’t you just love the wagsters on the internet?
FINALLY the tomatoes in my garden are producing enough to make a meal from! I had a packet of sausages in the freezer that I wanted to use up, so I made half of them into meatballs for a pasta sauce. It’s a complicated meal… just get your sausages, cut them with scissors into meatball sized lengths and shallow fry them. Then pop them into the thermomix bowl (REVERSE speed 1) into the pasta sauce you’d been cooking for about 20 minutes and mix through for a few minutes. Serve on top of pasta. Sprinkle with shaved parmesan cheese. Devour.
Yep… we’re all about the gourmet in this house on Wednesday nights! The really nice thing about this meal was that I had so many cherry tomatoes to use (thanks Alyse!) that I just threw the onions, garlic and chilli into the bowl, then added the tomatoes and chopped them and then sauted them without any oil. There was so much tomato juice that adding oil would’ve been overkill. The flavour was intense and utterly gorgeous. Very happy with the result. Throw in a splurt of red wine, some tomato paste and a tablespoon of veggie stock paste I’d made a couple of weeks ago, along with the homegrown basil, oregano and chilli, it was a really nice feed from the backyard.
I realise this post would’ve been more interesting with an actual photo of my dinner, but I was very hungry. Sorry.
5 more sleeps till I’m at the airport…
Thermomix recipe: Leek and Bacon Tart (This looks like a very useful recipe. You can use the pastry base for anything savoury, while the filling is simple as it is, or you can use your imagination and substitute with whatever you have to hand. ) It also has a nice preamble about what she likes about the thermomix.
