I miss traveling so much! I thought it might be fun to take a little Skinnymixers Trip to France to celebrate Bastille Day this year with a menu plan full of French Thermomix Recipes. On the menu is…
Appetiser: Apricot & Almond Warm Brie, Entree: French Onion Soup, Main: Pork Fillet Dinner with Béarnaise Sauce & Dessert: Mousse au Chocolate.
I think I’ve always been in love with France and French cuisine. France will always hold a special place in my heart & not just for the amazing wine! This is footage from my research trip to France in 2017, where I found the inspiration for my cookbook A Little Taste of France.
There are so many favourites in A Little Taste of France, with most recipes being quite budget friendly and family friendly.
If you haven’t made the Apricot & Almond Warm Brie, you are truly missing out. In the cookbook we also have a couple of different fruit & nut variations plus a very popular Low Carb friendly Pistou version.
This French Onion Soup Thermomix recipe is gluten free, nut free, egg free and freezer friendly. In the book in true Skinnymixers style we also have variations to make it dairy free, low carb, super skinny (low calorie, Paleo and vegetarian.
There is also a slow cooker variation that you can take advantage of to have dinner nearly ready when you return home from work!
The Pork Fillet Dinner with Béarnaise Sauce is truly restaurant quality and you may want to drink that sauce! You can increase the vegetable in the steaming trays if you have a few mouths to feed. We don’t recommend increasing the potato though, if you need more mash you may like to consider doing it on the stovetop.
Prepare your Mousse au Chocolat ahead of schedule and take the dessert out of the fridge 20 minutes prior to serving to allow it to soften if it has hardened slightly.
Just thinking of all this French food takes me back to France, I hope this Skinnymixers trip to France has inspired you to treat your tastebuds for Bastille Day!
