    Yum!!!  My husband and I LOVED this!  I found that it is a bit risky to rely on the Thermomix to chop up the chilli pepper small enough without leaving a big chunk, so I will chop this up with a knife in the future.  I don't want to kill a family member or friend if they get a big chunk!  If anyone has any other suggestions, I'm welcome to them!

    This may be a really silly question but if you put the quinoa in the varoma, won't it just fall through the hole?

  • This is a staple at all BBQ's

    Submitted by ang177 on 7. March 2015 - 13:36.

    This is a staple at all BBQ's I go to. There is something about telling people it is Quinoa, especially after SO many people are apposed to it. After they try it the look on their face is great! How can something so healthy be so delicious! Way to go. I leave out the sundried toms as hubby hates them. Thanks again tmrc_emoticons.)
