Thermobexta’s ABC Nut Butter

Nut butter is so easy to make in your thermal mixer. It’s a staple in our house and our favourite mix is A-B-C: Almond, Brazil nut and Cashew. You can use any combination of nuts you have on hand, though.

Thermobexta’s Lime Avocado Mayonnaise

Avo Mayo

I bought a bottle of avocado oil a long time ago after hearing how good it is in mayonnaise.  It was soon lost and forgotten in my small, overfull pantry, until recently.  I made this mayonnaise the other night when I decided to make sushi for my girls’ lunch boxes and realised I had limited filling ingredients – a flavoursome mayo was essential.  This turned out even better than expected!  The oil I used was lime infused, which added another fantastic element and if you can find the same one, I highly recommend it.  If not, a plain avo oil will be fine, but I would suggest increasing the apple cider vinegar a little if so.  A friend has since made my recipe in this way and was hooked upon first taste 🙂 Continue reading Thermobexta’s Lime Avocado Mayonnaise

Thermobexta’s Odds and Ends Vegetable Stock Concentrate

Vege Stock Paste

This recipe also appears in my cookbook, Thermobexta: Main Meals Made Easy, which you can check out here 🙂

Vegetable stock concentrate is an essential ingredient in most meals at my house.  It adds so much flavour and depth and I add dulse to mine to up the nutrient content too.  This is my variation of the TMX recipe that you will find in your Every Day Cookbook, or Basic Cook Book (the books that come with TM31’s and TM5’s).  I have named this version “Odds and Ends Vegetable Stock Concentrate” because it is perfect for using up the leftover ends of veges left at the bottom of your vege drawer, as well as parts of veges that you would normally throw out.  You can swap and change the veges, just try to stick to roughly the same total weight.  And my gut tells me that if using cauliflower, cabbage, potato or sweet potato, just use small amounts of them.

Thermobexta’s Spiced Fig, Honey & Lemon Jam

Spiced Fig Jam

I know that I have a couple of popular jam recipes here on my blog, but I’m going to have to say this – this fig jam is the best one!  I have used honey as part of the sweetener (you can’t use it as the entire sweetener unfortunately) and the spices add such a lovely, warm flavour.  The lemon makes the flavours really ‘pop’ and adding it towards the end means it doesn’t change the consistency too much.  I do hope you try this 🙂 Continue reading Thermobexta’s Spiced Fig, Honey & Lemon Jam
