Spicy BBQ chicken ‘all-in-one’ meal
Your Thermomix makes it super easy to create delicious ‘all-in-one’ meals that save heaps of time and feed a small army. With this gluten-free, nut-free and egg-free recipe, your BBQ marinated chicken cooks in the Varoma tray with vegetables steaming in the Varoma dish, and rice cooking in the simmering basket all at the same time. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
Raw macadamia lime ‘cheesecake’
All the nutritional goodness of far North Queensland’s finest ingredients create a delicious tango of flavours in this recipe. We’re talking lime, avocado, macadamia nuts, vanilla and coconut. We’re talking dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, vegan, vegetarian and raw. It ticks all those boxes, so everyone gets to have their cheesecake and eat it.
Homemade coconut butter is the ultimate nut-free ingredient for your pantry basics. We love using it as nut butter alternative for making raw treats, bliss balls and healthy dairy-free fudges.
