To call this a recipe is a bit of a stretch…it is one of those mere suggestions, and dare I say it? You could do this without the use of your Thermomix. It was one of those hot days we have been suffering through here in Perth and to throw something tasty into the oven meant I didn’t have to think too hard about it…and whats more…I needed another Dinner for our Dinner Spinner iphone app (the ‘app’tly renamed, Spin-A-Dinner) If you haven’t got one…go get one, and then you will have the most amazing Thermomix app ever! (And the Sydney Morning Herald is never wrong about those things!)
