When you’re packing your car or caravan for the holidays, why wouldn’t you take the one thing that makes your life so much easier every single day? Your Thermomix.
It’s the one thing that’ll help you cut down the cost of eating out while you’re travelling or camping – especially the pre-dinner cocktails and kids’ ice creams.
It’s the one thing that’ll save you the drama of finding special diet and allergy-friendly dining options – especially when there’s only pie and chips on the menu and you’re craving more variety.
And it’s the one thing you’ll wish you’d packed if you turn up to discover you’ve been duped on the kitchen facilities in your temporary abode. Because holidays are as much about the food and drink as they are about the journey and the destination, right?
Plug in and away you go
All you need to use your Thermomix while you’re camping or travelling is access to power. You won’t need a WiFi connection to cook your favourites on Cookidoo. You can simply save the recipes to your Collections before you go to cook offline.
And you won’t even need to leave much space in the back, because your Thermomix packs 20 kitchen appliances – everything but the kitchen sink – and it fits into one super-neat, travel-sized (46cm x 33cm x 42cm) Thermomix carry bag!
Three easy pre-make comfort foods to reheat
You can pre-make and freeze your family favourite comfort foods like spaghetti bolognaise and curries. All you need to do is reheat in your Thermomix, kickback and relax. Put these three winner dinners on your travelling prep list:
Four one-pot recipes to make on-the-spot
The key to cooking on a camping and caravanning trip is finding simple one-pot recipes that pack big flavours, but are light on ingredients to save space and make less washing up at the end of the day.
Whip up a batch of classic Aussie Damper or some speedy beans on toast. Try this Chicken with spinach and almond pesto tagliatelle for dinner. You don’t even need to bother cleaning the bowl before you cook the pasta, just chuck it in while you steam the chicken in the Varoma. Or what about a crowd-pleasing Creamy tomato and salami fettuccine?
Take holiday barbecues to the next level
There’s usually a lot of barbecuing happening on holidays. But they can lack the sizzle if you’re making-do with store-bought pre-packed burgers and additive-packed sauces. Here are four family favourites you can prep easily in your Thermomix that pack all the flavour.
Keep everyone sweet
If anyone’s screaming for ice cream, save yourself the expense and keep it healthy and preservative-free with these three cooling sweet treats you can whip in a matter of minutes.
Happy hour cocktails!
Your very own Thermomixologist can mix, shake and stir like a pro, but it won’t cost you a bucketload when it’s your shout at cocktail o’clock. Grab your own mini-bar essentials for these happy-hour classics and pack your ThermoServer Mini for keeping your ice cool.
Have Thermomix carry bag, will travel!
Your Thermomix, Varoma, simmering basket, spatula and butterfly whisk all fit neatly and securely in this compact heavy-duty carry bag, keeping them protected while you’re on the road. And yes, it fits all three models. Grab the Thermomix carry bag for your next trip.
Your staples are in the bag
To save even more space, vacuum pack your staples such as rice before you go. The bags can be reused for packing dry ingredients on your next trip too. Check out TheMix Shop's Vacuum sealer and bags!
