Top 10 Recipes from the Skinnymixers Website.
#10 Bacon & Vegetable Soup
This is possibly one of the easiest Thermomix Recipes and perfect for cleaning out the sad looking vegetables in the fridge. The Bacon & Vegetable Soup is super budget friendly AND is a great lower calorie dinner ready in under 30 minutes.
What’s not to love about this easy, chuck everything in soup recipe.
#9 Buffalo Chicken Wings
We all went a little Buffalo Chicken Wing crazy when this recipe was released in October this year and given a couple more months I’m sure it would be higher up the list!
We’ve seen so many different variations including using tomato sauce instead of the Chilli Sauce to make them very mild for the kids. Unfortunately my kids decided to taste these tasty wings and the delicious Blue Cheese Sauce… and loved them >.< !
#8 Roast Pork Belly with Caramelised Apple Sauce
How can something so simple and so little ingredients pack such a flavour punch? An instant classic and a meal sure to impress at any dinner party. This recipe received an all-in-one update in the cookbook The Healthy Mix III this year.
Make sure you check out the Pork Belly FAQ page for all the tips on cooking different sized roasts, cooking in an air fryer and how to achieve the perfect crackling.
Also the perfect recipe to cook when you “accidentally” order too many apples in your online grocery order 😉
#7 Chunky Bolognese
It’s hard to believe that the Chunky Bolognese isn’t higher up on the list as it is cooked regularly in many households. If you have previously attempted a Spaghetti Bolognese in the Thermomix and haven’t loved the results, then you need to try this recipe.
With the mince cooked in the simmering basket, the meat stays chunky. If you want to hide some extra vegetables in the sauce there is some tips in the Meal Plan: 5 Quick Dinners for a Busy Skinnymixer.
#6 Rustic Shepherds Pie
The Rustic Shepherds Pie is a family favourite. Simple, classic flavours that is sure to be popular with fussy eaters (young and old). You can easily adapt this recipe to add extra vegetables or make it low carb with the addition of cauliflower mash.
You can also freeze portions for a fast mid-week. Simply pop into the freezer after adding the mash on top and bake in the oven when ready to eat.
#5 Aussie Meat Pie Filling
We saw the healthy pastry free versions, gluten free pastry and then a flood of classic pies with shortcrust pastry on the bottom and puff pastry on the top – with the confidence of knowing exactly what went into the delicious pies.
#4 Macaroni Cheese with a Twist
The ultimate ‘hide as many vegetables as possible’ Thermomix meal. This recipe is popular with all the mums of fussy eaters. Give it a go and see if it is popular in your household. If your child doesn’t like the taste of cheese or prefers different cheeses, try different cheese combos.
If you need it to be dairy-free, try the Dairy Free Cheesy Spelt Pasta recipe.
Some other clever Skinnymixers have made the Macaroni Cheese with a Twist into frittatas perfect by following similar directions to the Risotto Frittatas with a Twist and adding egg to the cooled mix and baking in muffin tins.
#3 LCHF Chicken Kievs
These LCHF Chicken Kievs will mean you will never want to buy another Kiev ever again. Bursting with flavour and so easy to make, you will want to try all the alternative filling suggestions from the Skinnymixers Community including Chile Con Queso filled and Malaysian Satay filled Kievs.
Keep a batch in the freezer raw and bake them from frozen in the same amount of time it takes to make the ultimate side dish: Silky Sweet Potato Mash.
#2 Coconut Curried Sausages
The Coconut Curried Sausages are a standard family favourite and often the reason for the great Babas Malaysian Meat Curry Powder treasure hunt.
Whether your family likes them extra mild or perhaps with chicken instead of sausages, there will definitely be arguments over the leftovers. For those that meal prep, this meal freezes and defrosts perfectly and is incredibly budget friendly.
#1 Butter Chicken
Could the number #1 recipe be anything else than “The Butter Chicken”?
If you are new to the world of Skinnymixers or Thermomix, don’t be put off by the long ingredients list, set aside an afternoon and read through the comprehensive Butter Chicken FAQs if you are nervous. This recipe has been the reason for quite a few thermal cooker purchases. It is quite easy and straight-forward, once you get all your ingredients out ready 🙂
