I’m alyce and my motto is homemade is always healthiest. I truly believe that, regardless of skill level or time constraints, anyone with a thermo cooker can cook nourishing and delicious food they are proud to serve and share - as long as you have the right recipes and accessories! And that’s where I come in.

spicy broccoli pasta in the Thermomix

spicy broccoli pasta in the Thermomix

The perfect quick meal for two, you’ll have dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes! Our star ingredient broccoli forms the bulk of the sauce, enhanced with chilli, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and cheese – it’s a winning combination. Finished off with toasted pine nuts for creaminess and crunch, there’s nothing unsophisticated about this simple dish.

If you’re looking for more quick, simple and delicious meals in your Thermomix, check out my cookbook ‘Quick Dinners’ - I honestly haven’t had a person tell me they don’t love it yet! It’s available both in digital copy for instant access worldwide and hardcover in Australia and New Zealand.
