Super Easy Thermomix Hollandaise Sauce

16 Sep

I love Hollandaise Sauce, but I never make it.

I have tried numerous recipes. I have even had one on one lessons from a Chef. But nothing has ever really worked for me. No matter what method I try, I can only get a recipe to work maybe once, maybe twice but never again. I have made a whole lot of acidic scrambled eggs, split oily concoctions & other major fails.

That was until I started making it in my Thermomix, now I am in love with making my own Hollandaise, because it makes it for me & it works every time 🙂

I can be grilling salmon, assembling a salad & the Hollandaise is making itself. Now that’s my idea of cooking!

You can choose to make your Hollandaise with apple cider vinegar or lemon juice, I prefer the vinegar as it makes it a little tart & cuts through the butter. But,its all a matter of preference & lemon juice makes a  more traditional Hollandaise.

Hollandaise Sauce a’la Mama Going Natural

So here is the hard bit!! Are you ready??

Put all ingredients in your Thermomix & turn it on for 8 minutes at 90 degrees on speed 3. Sit back & wait for the Magic to happen.

If you are worried about the high amount of butter in this recipe, never fear – butter is good for you!

It not only tastes great & makes everything taste better it has a myriad of health benefits which can be read about here.

Our Favourite Mayonnaise variations

12 Aug

Mayonnaise is a staple in our house, like flour & sugar are in others. We use it on everything & I do mean everything.

We even dip our chips in it, as evidenced below – don’t knock it till you have tried it. Crunchy chips & creamy mayonnaise……..yum!

We make our own Mayonnaise using my homemade mayo recipe with 100% pure cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. While it doesn’t taste too great, it is much better for you than using vegetable oils which are potentially damaging to your health.

So while our Mayo is healthy it does have a very distinct olive oil flavour – nothing like the creamy sweet artificial stuff you buy from the supermarket. Coming up with unique & flavoursome ways to hide the tart almost spicy flavour of the olive oil so that “Miss Two” will eat my Mayo is a constant battle but the below Mayo variations meet with her approval & mine!

Adding honey to Mayo may seem a little strange but it helps to take the edge off the spiciness of the olive oil & make the Mayo smoother & less sharp – great for little people’s palates.

Take your plain Mayo & blend in the honey & mustard to taste.

Curry Mayonnaise a’la Mama Going Natural

  • half a batch of my homemade mayo recipe
  • 1 T curry powder
  • 1 T honey
  • 1 t garam marsala (optional)

Take your plain Mayo & blend in all of the above to taste.

Now go make a batch of chips & try Mayo on your chips – you just might like it 🙂
