    This is one of the best meals I have cooked in the thermomix to date. I had a very hot chilli in teh fridge and used 1/4 of it in this dish to give it a nice kick. Also had some snow peas and mushrooms which i added in the last step. Served with sweet potatoe wraps that i had in the pantry. Will definitely be adding this one into our rotation. Yum.
