After the surprise success of the carrot salad (which I can see me eating, with variations, until I'm sick of it), I thought I'd try coleslaw.
Recipes for Thermy Coleslaw abound, all I really wanted was a rough idea of the proportions, and what speed to use.
In the end I made it up, as MH doesn't eat this sort of thing and I only wanted a small amount. I just used some white cabbage, carrot, onion, some of the garlic from earlier, and some celery. I chopped it briefly, then scraped down and added the wet ingredients. I put in some white wine vinegar (too much), some Hellman's mayonnaise, some Greek Yoghurt, salt, pepper, lemon juice. I then mixed it on reverse. Another scrape down, another mix. And there I had it.
It was, of course, small chopped pieces. When I make it by hand, it's more..sliced. However, it tasted very fresh and pleasant. I had used too much white wine vinegar, so the mayo was too runny. However, it was very edible. I'm sure this is something I will keep tweaking.
I then wanted to make pea puree. I put a small amount of water on to boil, and looked for my frozen petits pois. I couldn't find them. By the time I had checked, and checked again, and asked MH, and checked again, the water was boiling. In the end I steamed some broccoli.
When it was cooked, I threw away the water (which I never do, I usually freeze it for gravies). I then blitzed the broccoli, ending up with - blitzed broccoli. Not a puree at all. I then realised that I should probably have blitzed it with some of the water. I possibly also should have swapped bowls, as my bowl was still hot. That wouldn't have mattered if I'd left some water in. Overall, that was a fail. I'm sorry to say I scraped the bowl into the bin. I like broccoli, but not like this.
Next, I made a smoothie. I used my typical smoothie ingredients which I used to make in the Vitamix, and then started using my food processor when I sold the VM. Some greek yoghurt, some Kefir, a frozen small banana, some frozen fruit, some flaxseed. Blitz on high. This was good, but I didn't leave it blitzing for long enough. It usually takes about 4 minutes in my food processor to get really smooth and creamy. I blitzed it for maybe 30 seconds, which blended it but left a lot of bittiness. I'll try it for longer next time.
