They have a healthy method in the new "Great Taste at Every Level" book for steaming eggs.You first boil water in the mixing bowl for 5 minutes / 100c/ speed 1. Then you crack the eggs on to the Varoma Tray and cook them for 6 minutes / Varoma / speed 1.
They were delicious. What I would call a healthy fried egg although it was steamed!
Accompanied by the less healthy fried potatoes, bacon and buttered toast!
Home made Coleslaw chopped in 5 seconds! That is not a misprint. Weigh in the raw vegetables and dressing ingredients, set the machine for 5 seconds speed 5 and that is all there is to it.
Mixing the ingredients for the Burgers only took seconds too and with the help of the Lakeland Plastics Burger Press they were ready to cook moments later.
I cooked them for about 4 minutes each side.
Here is the finished result.

I decided it was time to try out a new soup recipe so I chose the Spiced Moroccan Soup from the Basic Cook Book. I mixed the spices and then chopped the onions and garlic and sauteed them for 5 minutes. I then added the tomatoes, lentils and stock and cooked the soup for 20 minutes.
The soup was deliciously spicy and had some chunkiness to it which I liked.
I will definitely be making this one again.
