Welcome to my page! I got my Thermomix back at the end of 2011 and have been experimenting with Thermomix recipes ever since. Now a first-time mummy to Arianna Grace, I can’t wait to continue discovering great new dishes as well as venture into the world of baby food (eek!)

  1. i love how you use ur thermomix while mine is just lying there collecting dust not so good at experimenting like u with this probably i will use mine soon cause it looks so delicious ans easy

    • ChooTheFat says:

      It’s the most expensive gadget I own so I can’t afford to let mine collect dust! It is extremely easy though, start with dips and sorbet, maybe even smoothies? You can’t go wrong!

    • averygosh says:

      How could anyone let their Thermomix gather dust?
      I think mine rues the day it arrived in our home.
      Since then it hasn’t had a moment’s rest.
      Start with warm milk for cappuccino, risotto, soups.
      You can whip up a cake or bread in a matter of minutes.
      Look around on Thermomix forums…

      I’m happy to buy your thermomix from you.

    • kbhaught says:

      I will buy yours to have a second one! I use mine at least once a day. Every morning either a nice fresh veggie stew for lunch or some pumpkin/carrot soup for later, with fresh veggies steaming on top for dinner prep. Failsafe rice afterward to mix with the soup or stew at lunch, carrot mash for the grand baby, ice cream for hubby, smoothie for me. It’s so easy to make things in advance and put in mason jars in fridge and pull out and I love how there’s virtually no clean up…plus now I don’t burn anything. Everything is always perfect!

    Love reading about your cooking adventures with the thermomix. Just got one recently and am still learning and experimenting. Gonna try your pork Congee recipe this week!

    • ChooTheFat says:

      Thanks Mei! Let me know how your congee goes. Dips, cake mix and sorbet were the three things I had most fun experimenting with because it’s nearly failsafe.

      Have a great day!

    Hi, I’m a Singaporean Chinese living in Belgium. I’m expecting a visit from my family soon in a few weeks’ time and I’m currently doing research online for Chinese meals to cook with the TMX. I’m happy to find your congee recipes,they would definitely go well with my mum. Just a question here, what rice do you use?

    Cheers! Meili

    • ChooTheFat says:

      Hi Mei Li,

      You must be looking forward to the visit, hope you have a great time with them! I’ve used basmati and long grain rice and both were fine, because you’re milling the rice there’s no real difference.

      The TMX is also good for steaming fresh fish in the Varoma with ginger, garlic etc to have with rice if this helps 🙂

      • Meili says:

        Yes, I’m going to try steaming fish and veg in the Varoma, thanks!
        I like your blog, especially all that no fuss, easy to whack stuff, haha. I’m a mother of three and they just can’t have enough of the cakes and cookies. You have a lot of tried and tested recipes that I’m surely going to try. Today I’m going to try the Berry Muffins. I’ve never tried making that with the TMX, so I’m curious. I also see that you make a lot of dips too. I own the EDC book but I’m really a newcomer to all these dips and sauces and I’m always wondering what we can use them for, like what dips/sauces go with what.
        I still have a lot of TMX exploring to do, but I’m enjoying it everytime I discover something new!
        Cheers! Meili

    I love this blog…just discovered it tonight. Your food looks like real food and you use real ingredients!! I love my thermomix and am often searching the net for new ideas….am going to try some of your dips and that broccoli sauce looks interesting, plus the Donna Hay choc cake and absolutely that lemon curd cake. If this rain keeps up I think I’ll be baking all weekend!

    • ChooTheFat says:

      Thanks Michelle! The in-laws have been in town so I’ve been neglecting the blog, but will definitely post more soon. The lemon curd cake is Di. Vine. Try the torta caprese before the Donna Hay cake, I prefer that recipe. Let me know how you go!

  5. Christine says:

    Well, how happy am I to discover your blog whilst looking for soup recipes for my new thermomix. Love your honesty too… it’s good to know that someone else has the occasional cooking fail! I’ll be a regular reader from now on.

    • ChooTheFat says:

      Thanks for the kind words Christine! Do let me know if you have any soup recipe recommendations too, would love to try them!

    This blog is great. Very different from a truckload of TMX websites and forums all around here and there, full of actually un-tested recipes posted just for posing sake, this is about a person having fun with TMX and enjoying cooking. 🙂

    I am a TMX user from Italy, where the machine is called ‘Bimby’ (stupid, stupid fake name I refuse to use myself), first my grandmother’s 3300, recently the latest TM31. Hello from Italy! Should you ever need any secret advice about this and that on our national quisine, please just drop me a line. You’ll be always the most welcome! 🙂

    Hello, this is a wonderful blog. Been browsing through it and the foods you prepared with thermy look so delicious.
    I have been wondering how to make meat floss with thermomix. Will you shed some lights please?

    • ChooTheFat says:

      Hi Tanya, thanks for the kind words! I haven’t tried meat floss myself and did a quick Google search but couldn’t find anything either. Will definitely keep this one in mind though! Sharon

    Our favorite soup is 1/2 onion and a couple of clove garlics ground and sautéed for 4 min, add 250 g carrots, and 450 butternut squash, salt and pepper, a couple of Tablespoons of TM veggie paste and a cup of water. Chop for 15 sec on 7, then cook on Varoma speed 2 for 18 min. Add one can of Nature Value organic coconut milk and mix on low. and yumm. I’ve tried adding various spices, but honestly, this is so good by itself I like it best plain. My granddaughter (22 mo.) also loves it. I add a little water and put it in a glass for her to drink..great natural vitamins. Also good for Paleo diet, gluten free diet, gall bladder diet, and variety of others.

    Hi Sharon,
