We bought our Thermomix about 4 months ago, and sometimes I feel like I’m not using it as much as I should.
Don’t get me wrong, we use it every single day, but I see people making amazing dinners, desserts and staple items, and I can’t help but feel out thermomix is not being used to its full potential.
I’ve realised it actually takes a lot of time to plan and organise making your own items.
Between working full time, social activities, housework, and crafting .. There’s sometimes not a lot left in the tank to make items that I wouldn’t usually make. I’ve decided to set myself an achieveable goal though.
Each month I’m going to make something that I wouldn’t usually make. Just one thing per month. I think this will be managable, and will allow me to feel like I’m getting more out of Thermomix.
This month my item was bread. I’ve never made bread before, so I thought this would be a good item to tackle first.
I used the 5 Seed Bread from the Everyday Cookbook.
5 SEED BREAD INGREDIENTS
- 2 teaspoon dry Yeast
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 50gms Oats
- 30gms Sesame Seeds
- 30gms Linseeds
- 30gms Sunflower Seeds
- 30gms Pumpkin Seeds
- 30gms Poppy Seeds
- 30gms Honey
- 30gms Olive Oil
- 500gms Lukewarm Water
I think you could make this recipe without the thermomix, you’d just need to knead a little longer to make sure all the seeds are combined. The processing for making the dough only took me about 10 minutes or so. After letting the dough rise and cook, the process took about 2 hours in total.
I’d definitely make this recipe again though. The bread is so filling that when I previously would have 2 slices with soup for lunch, I only need one thanks to all the fibre and seeds.
