Well.... aren't the "professional" chefs falling over themselves showing how much they love their Thermomix.... and I sure as heck love that!!!
Julie Gordon, the winner of Australia's first Masterchef competition, has come on board with this groovy little video for Chicken and Choritzo Stew
I heard about this for the first time a little while ago from head office, and then (shock!!!) forgot about it! My groovy friend from Melbourne, Frogdancer, mentioned it on her blog recently and I thought...mmmm.... gotta check that out!.
I watched the recipe and blow me down if I didn't have almost exactly the ingredients which I would need for it - a lucky happenstance indeed! So... off to the kitchen went I.
What I LOVE about the recipe and video:
As I mentioned, I had ALMOST the ingredients.
Well... the recipe did seem like it would be easy and it most certainly was!! Did I like it? Well, LOVE would be a better word!! What a LOVELY little recipe!! I didn't expect the recipe to have an almost sweet flavour, expecting it to be richer and spicier, but nope - flavoursome and light. Fab - I would recommend you go out and do it now! (vegetarians excepted - sorry guys)
What I also liked, is that it would feed a small army! This would feed 3-4 adults just as it is, no problem. If you want to feed more, don't add the pasta - but after cooking, keep it warm in the server while you steam rice and veggies. If you want to cook for less - you can halve the recipe, but it seriously is fabulous, cook it as it is and have enough for several meals -freeze em! I would also suggest you leave the pasta out and cook that fresh with each portion reheated.
Where's the pic? Did I mention how mushy mine turned out? NO pic!
