How to make poached eggs (step by step)

Poaching eggs is a very interesting way to prepare eggs. First, there is the aesthetic side, which is more original and surprising and, secondly, there is nutritional side because they have a lower caloric intake than if we make them fried for example.

The poached eggs are cooked wrapped in plastic wrap, immersing them in water in the basket or steam in the Varoma. Here I explain how to tho them step-by- step so that you can make them very easily at home.

Tuna cannelloni

A colleague often brings tuna cannelloni to the office made by her mother and they are so good that I always think “I have to make my tuna cannelloni” but I never found a recipe that I completely liked. Until finally, I came up with this recipe, the perfect one, and at home everyone told me they were great. I did lots to freeze them but not a single one was left.

It is a very easy and economical recipe and it is perfect for children, not only because it is pasta and they always eat meat cannelloni very well, but because they will eat fish without noticing it. You might feel lazy about rolling the cannelloni, but I assure you it does not take so long, and it is worth it because later we can freeze them or have them in the fridge for 3 days, and they are great if we have many guests at home.

Whisky squids

I never thought that these squids could be so delicious. Honestly, they are amazing. The sauce has a mild taste but very original and flavoursome. I totally recommend it. On Fridays we usually eat at home but we arrive a little late, so I like to leave an already-made meal that just needs to be warmed up. I thought I would leave these squids ready, and they were a complete success!!

Creamy rice with king prawns


Creamy rice with kingprawns

On weekends I love making rice, because rice is better if you eat at the time. And with the Thermomix, rice is simply delicious. Today I went to the market and saw some delicious king prawns, so the decision was easy: creamy rice with king prawns.

I have used king prawns, but of course you can use prawns, shrimps or whaterver you like. The only thing to bear in mind is that you need to use them raw as we will use the shells to make a fumé (fish stock).

Bacalhau à Bras (Portuguese style codfish )

Bacalhau a bras

Today I bring a new way of cooking codfish. It is important to eat fish several times a week, so I am constantly looking for new ways to prepare it. In addition, cod is one of my favorite fishes, for the price, texture and has few thorns (so it is a good choice for children).

This recipe is originally from Portugal, as you might know they are really good preparing this kind of fish. It is very easy to prepare and cheap. The only drawback I see is that it must be taken at the time (from one day to another is not so good). In addition, this particular dish, I like to finish it in the pan (not on the Thermomix).
