Do you use all four levels of your Thermomix®? If not, you are missing out. Have a look at our Steam Around the World collection and try out some of the recipes that show the benefits of multi-level cooking with Thermomix®.
Everyone knows steaming brings out the delicate flavors of fish but, have you tried Cajun Shrimp Steamer with Garlic Butter, Mongolian Beef with Rice and Steamed Orange Cake or Persian Chicken and Rice? When you do, you’ll find that steaming can deliver a whole range of flavors, from the subtlest to the very bold. Steaming over a soup or sauce means any juices dripping from the food in the Varoma adds flavor and nutrients to what’s cooking in the mixing bowl and nothing goes to waste.
Once you have tried fluffy steamed couscous, you’ll never be satisfied with the basic cooking instructions on the packet. Especially if you steam it over a flavorful broth. Bread and cake both develop a surprisingly soft and tender crumb when steamed. And steamed lasagne is a creamy, moist alternative to the traditional baked version.
The gentle cooking method preserves many of the food’s nutrients and allows you to cook with less fat. Steaming is a great way to prepare not only fish and vegetables, but also nutritious grains, meat and fruit.
Whenever you cook something that generates steam, whether it’s a soup, a sauce or a stew, you can add ingredients to the simmering basket or Varoma to cook or reheat them at the same time. Cookidoo® has several recipes to cook multiple courses at once, including dessert. Clean up is easy with no pots, pans or grease.
From Chinese dim sum to British sticky toffee puddings or Polish Stuffed cabbage rolls, Cookidoo® will take you on a trip around the world of regional specialities. Make sure you look at the tips and variations for ideas on how to make these recipes your own. The art of steaming food has been around for centuries, but has never been easier.
