Capsicum and Sundried Tomato Dip and Macadamia and Rocket Dip

This is going to be a very quick little post today giving you two really simple dips that I made last week with the Thermomix.



Capsicum and Sundried Tomato Dip 

30g parmesan cheese, cubed
1 clove garlic
100g sundried tomatoes, drained
1/2 large red capsicum
100g toasted cashews
20g white wine vinegar
20g extra virgin olive oil

Place the parmesan in the Thermomix (TM bowl) and mill for 8 seconds on speed 9.

Add all remaining ingredients and dial set to closed lid position, press Turbo button for 1-2 seconds until you have achieved a rough blend.

Remove the dip from the TM bowl, leaving a small amount in the bowl.




Salad Dressing

juice 1 lemon
50g olive oil

To the remaining dip in the TM bowl add the lemon juice and olive oil.  Blend 5 seconds on speed 6.




Macadamia and Rocket Dip

60g rocket
1 cup macadamias, roasted, salted
1 cup flat leaf parsely
100g parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic

Place the parmesan in the TM bowl and mill for 8 seconds on speed 9.

Add all remaining ingredients and dial set to closed lid position, press Turbo button for 1-2 seconds until you have achieved a rough blend.

You can make a salad dressing the same as above if you wish.

How's that for a short post?  If you had a Thermomix you probably would have been able to prepare all this in less than the time than it took to read this post!

Don't despair if you don't have a Thermomix (I don't have one - although I am hoping that Santa has been reading my posts and is putting one away for me for Christmas!!).  You can make these dips using a food processor - they just may take a little longer!!

  1. This dips look great. I'm not sure what a Thermomix is (I know that makes me sound like an idiot), but could achieve the same result with a hand blender do you think?

  5. The Thermomix is a combination of several kitchen appliances - it grinds, blends, purees and even cooks! It is a fantastic appliance - you can take a look at it by clicking on the link at the right of this blog.

  8. Mmmmmmm, dip is wonderful and I just used my regular food processor. I did grate the Parmesan cheese first but other than that I followed the recipe as written!
