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.

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!

Fancy a quick desert? Try these! 5 mins and very good for you too!
This recipe is an adaptation from another, and I’ve made a few changes to it. The recipe below includes the ingredients from the original recipe as optional extras. It’s delicious, but a little too much banana in my chocolate fix, though I do tend to make it that way for the children.

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!

Need something warming and comforting, but healthy to snuggle up with. Try this diy redbush chai tea. #thermomix #recipe
You can use any teabags, but I use Redbush for it’s healing properties, and the lack of caffeine or tannins, which I don’t enjoy. You can use whole spices or ground. You can also make up a larger amount, and keep them for making a cup or two of Chai Tea at a time. Keep them in an airtight container so they don’t lose flavour though!
