We’ve had a few people asking about everyone’s favourite Thermomix Recipes with Mince lately. I thought I’d take a couple of minutes to compile all the mince recipes in an easy to access recipe guide, as mince can be used for so much more than Chunky Spaghetti Bolognese. Please feel free to comment with your favourite mince recipes.
This recipe uses diced gravy beef in the book, but for the times when you have some budget mince to use and crave some epic Mexican… mince is perfectly acceptable.
Cook the mince in the simmering basket for 20 minutes at a time (2 x 500g Beef mince for 20 mins each in the basket), like the Chunky Spaghetti Bolognese recipe. The mince replaces the gravy beef and can be mixed at the end sp 3/reverse to remove some of the chunks.
The great Skinnymixer’s Aussie Meat Pie craze of 2018. The reason that Pie Makers were sold out around Australia. This is such a tasty, simple pie filling that you can adapt to your own flavour combinations and dietary restrictions.
This recipe is quite easy to sneak in some hidden vegetables too.
If you are going to make Spaghetti Bolognese in the Thermomix, you must try this recipe. This recipe is a must try, especially if you haven’t liked the fine texture of other Thermomix Bolognese recipes. This recipe is simple, tasty and can easily hide some vegetables in the sauce if needed.
This recipe will become a staple weeknight recipe in your household.
These green (hulk) meatballs are fantastic to keep in your #freezerstash for school lunchboxes, or even for after school snacks. If you are looking to add some extra kale or baby spinach to your diet, then this recipe is perfect.
The ultimate grain free, low carb healthy fat fakeaway food.
Add your favourite pizza toppings on your meaty base – personally I like roasted pumpkin, zucchini, capsicum, chilli, onion, garlic and cheese. Go the extra mile and make a batch of Skinnymixer’s Pizza Sauce for the freezer too.
Tip: Just remember the fattier the mince, the more shrinkage you will see with your Meatza base.
This comforting stew found in the cookbook, ‘A Little Taste of Spain’ is pulled together with some basic pantry staples.
Remember if you are changing the mince type to watch the cook times. Pork and beef mince will be a bit fattier than chicken mince, so watch that any lean mince doesn’t dry out. This meal is great for bulking up with vegetables in the varoma, just make sure you cut the vegetables small and check that they are cooked.
The perfect weekend breakfast, that you can easily increase to feed a crowd. This recipe uses the homemade chorizo meatball mix found in ‘The Healthy Mix II’ & ‘A Little Taste of Spain’. If you don’t have access to these books you can use store bought chorizo.
Dinner on the table within 20 minutes is often unheard of, but this simple flavour packed dinner will have you going back for seconds. If you need to increase the quantities to feed a couple more mouths, I recommend moving it to the stovetop.
Make sure you add your own condiments and add-ons to your own San Choy Bao. Chilli and fresh coriander is a must for me.
If you don’t love the taste of mushrooms, I cook this to the recipe and it hasn’t had a mushroom taste yet. Just remember to remove the moisture absorbing sachet before blitzing your shitake mushrooms.
This is Nik’s favourite recipe from ‘The Healthy Mix II’ (well this week anyway!) and for good reason. So much flavour is packed into those little meatballs and combined with the tzatziki, it is truly a party in your mouth.
I like to use these for lunchboxes and the ever popular with fussy kids ‘make-your-own wraps’ dinner. These meatballs can be pan-fried, oven baked, grilled on the BBQ or even the airfryer.
The Moussaka from A Little Taste of Greece is definitely a family favourite.
The best part about the Moussaka and the Pastitsio, is that you can use half the meat sauce to make Moussaka and half the meat sauce to make Pastitsio. Double your béchamel and you have two meals prepped with minimal extra effort!
