Vichy carrots & peas in the Thermomix (carrots & peas with onion, parsley and cream)

 

carrot-2523953_1280

This was a first for me. Even though I am French, I don’t recall ever eating Vichy carrots. But with a full bag about to go off and fed up with always having carrots the same way, I gave this a go. And boy, will I do this again.

It was done in no time at all, tasted delicious and is obviously full of the good stuff!

The traditional Vichy carrots don’t have peas but with 2 teenagers in the house, a bit of starch was needed. The results were fabulous.

Highly recommended!

My go-to Thermomix tomato sauce

pasta-2281208_1920

I must have tried over a dozen tomato sauce recipes out there and this is by far my family’s favourite.

It is so quick and I usually have the ingredients in the cupboard/fridge.

It is very versatile too, you can use Italian herbs or cayenne pepper, hide vegetables in it and enjoy it with pasta or on pizzas.

It’s also perfect to make in batches and freeze portions for that evening when ‘there’s nothing to eat Mummy!’.

  3. Cook for 6 minutes / 100C / Speed 1.
  4. Add the tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, sugar, herbs, salt and pepper.

  6. Cook 30 minutes / 100C / Speed 1 – cook a little longer if you’d like a thicker consistency.
  7. If you like it chunky, then it’s ready. If you like it more smooth turn your thermomix on for 5 seconds / speed 5.
