Thermomix Christmas Potatoes Recipe

Thermomix Christmas Potatoes Recipe

No matter what you’re cooking this festive season, a big bowl of delicious herby potatoes always goes down a treat! First, I steam them in the Varoma to make sure the insides are soft and fluffy, and then I finish them off in the oven for the perfect crispy exterior. Tossed with homemade herb salt (part of the recipe) and plenty of flavoursome garnishes, it really is perfection! Make double – don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Did you know I’ve got whole chapters devoted to Christmas entertaining in two of my cookbooks? Recipes from our Cooking School and Quick Fix Every Occasion - both cookbooks for Thermomix and thermo cookers.
