Five Freedom Day Foods for South Africa's #FreedomDay   #Thermomix   #ThermomixSA  
On the 27th of April, it's Freedom Day in South Africa, marking 11 years since our country's first democratic elections in 1994. One of the many things that make South Africa stand out from other countries, is our rich and exciting, somewhat exotic – monkey gland sauce, anyone? – cuisine.

Hmm... summer days call for scones and these are so light and airy, you can't but love them!
Light, airy and easy to make scones - enjoy!

hmmmm... warm that tummy, and boost the immune system too
My mother used this as a base for casserole dishes for many years. I've just adapted her recipe for the Thermomix. My husband and I have an ongoing argument about this soup. I think sweating the onion in the Thermomix is fine, but he thinks the first steps should be done on a frying pan. It's a personal flavour preference.

Have you started thinking about Christmas presents yet? Or is it a bit too early? (With my work hat on, we've been talking about it for months already!) Here's something I made for friends and family last year. They seemed to like it as much as I do!

Another South African favourite, Bobotie! #foodiesonline  
Bobotie freezes really well. Make it up to the end of step 5, then freeze. To prepare, thaw, and add the eggs, milk and bay leaves before baking.

It may look Christmassy, but it's actually just full of perfect winter spices - nothing like a spicy sugar scrub on a cold winter's night!
