Wow! This has really rocked my socks off! This spread is ideal for crackers, corn thins, toast and fresh bread rolls- or by the spoonful when no one is looking ;)

50g pumpkin seeds
50g sunflower seeds
30g sesame seeds

This recipe comes from liz mancini on the Thermomix Recipe Community. It was really yummy so I just had to share...
1 tbsp olive oil
5 sweet spiced gherkins
250 g cream cheese
Add onion to TM bowl. Chop 3 seconds, speed 7. Scrape down bowl.
Add oil. Sauté 2 minutes, 100, speed 1.
Add gherkins to TM bowl. Chop 5 seconds, speed 6.
Add cream cheese. Blend 20 seconds, speed 4. Scrape down bowl. Repeat.
Serve with crackers or veggies. I used it as a sandwich spread too which was fantastic! Would be good spread inside of scrolls made using the basic bread recipe in the EDC too!
Forget about sugar loaded store bought ice cream and icey poles. On a hot day, like the 30+ week we have been having in Perth, whip this sugar-free vegan 'ice cream' for you and the kids! Pour rum or vodka into mixture and pop in the freezer for a bit should you need an adult fix ;)
Ingredients & Method:
1 frozen banana, halved
150g whole frozen strawberries (even keep the tops on!)
40-60g cold water
Place fruit into TM bowl. Chop into a fine mixture 20 seconds, speed 6.
Insert butterfly. Add 40g of water to start and whip 30 seconds, speed 4. Scrape down lid and very top of bowl if there is any mixture left unwhipped. Add in 10-20g of water to whip in rest of mixture 10 seconds, speed 4.
Voila! Serve immediately.
Tip: Put this mixture into icey pole or ice cube trays and freeze.
Sometimes change is good. And sometimes I'm tired of my green smoothies. So, here is what I mixed up today- a frothy, creamy vegan milkshake!
