Thermomix™ Pastes

Out of all the things that I make in the Thermomix™, I think that Pastes are the most versatile and varied. I have put together a list of the different pastes that I make and the recipes that they are used for. If you are a fan of this post maybe you might like to have a look at my Bones Broths, Stocks and Stock Pastes blog as well.

Most pastes you make are for more than one recipe, but if they aren’t, I usually make a double batch anyway and freeze, finding something else to make with these taste bombs. I love making these pastes and freezing them, weighing the portions for meals and put them in small containers ready for quick dinners.

Many times I marinate some chicken, pork, beef etc… in the paste with some extra olive oil, salt and pepper, pop them on top of some cut vegetable and bake. You can use the pastes to marinate/coat or cook with protein of your choice, including tofu, then bake, stir fry, or use in the cookidoo recipe. They are so versatile and really handy to have in the freezer to pimp up any protein! 

Butter Chicken is our go to meal (at least once a month) I make triple batches of the spice mix and put it in a spice container so its always on hand. I also find that the butter chicken always has left over sauce that I put away for a very quick butter chicken meal for one. (Just fry up some chicken thighs add the sauce, heat and eat)

I hope that you enjoy using your Thermomix™ more, to add fabulous flavours to your cooking!

Enjoy Irresponsibly!!

I have been cooking since I can remember. I am a Thermomix consultant, so now (whenever possible) try to give you Conventional AND Thermomix methods for the recipes. I like to share tips on how to save money and how making food from scratch isn't really that hard (especially with a Thermomix). If you have any questions about the Thermomix or cooking/food in general please email me as I'm happy to chat.
