Exploring the Delights of July with Thermomix: Embracing Seasonal Produce in the UK

As summer rolls into full swing, the vibrant bounty of seasonal produce in the UK beckons us to create delightful culinary experiences. And what better way to maximize the potential of these ingredients than by incorporating the convenience and versatility of a Thermomix? This revolutionary kitchen appliance allows you to blend, chop, cook, and create an array of delicious dishes with ease. In this article, we will explore how to harness the power of the Thermomix and make the most of the July harvest in the UK, ensuring your meals are bursting with flavour, nutrition, and seasonal goodness.

  1. The Power of Seasonal Produce: Embracing seasonal produce is not only a sustainable choice but also a way to experience the freshest and most flavorful ingredients available. In July, the UK offers a vibrant range of fruits, vegetables, and herbs that are perfect for creating diverse and exciting dishes. Some of the highlights include juicy strawberries, succulent tomatoes, zesty lemons, fragrant herbs like basil and mint, and an array of summer vegetables such as courgettes, peas, and broad beans. Incorporating these ingredients into your Thermomix recipes will elevate your culinary creations, giving you the best of what nature has to offer.
  2. Refreshing Summer Smoothies: One of the simplest and most refreshing ways to utilize your Thermomix with July’s seasonal produce is by preparing vibrant summer smoothies. Start your day with a burst of energy by blending ripe strawberries, a squeeze of lemon juice, a handful of fresh mint leaves, and some crushed ice. For a tropical twist, combine mangoes, pineapples, and a splash of coconut water. With Thermomix’s powerful blending capabilities, achieving a smooth and creamy texture is a breeze. Feel free to experiment with different fruit combinations, adding a touch of yogurt or honey for added creaminess or sweetness.
  3. Summery Soups and Gazpacho: While we often associate soups with colder months, summery soups and gazpacho can be a light and refreshing meal during the warmer days. With Thermomix’s built-in heating and blending functions, creating delicious chilled soups is a breeze. Combine ripe tomatoes, cucumber, red bell pepper, garlic, and olive oil to make a classic gazpacho. Garnish it with freshly chopped herbs and a drizzle of olive oil for an extra touch of flavor. Additionally, you can experiment with other seasonal vegetables like courgettes or peas to create unique and vibrant soup variations. Serve these chilled delights as a starter or a light meal on a scorching summer day.
  4. Flavorsome Salads and Dressings: July’s harvest offers a plethora of vegetables perfect for creating vibrant and nutritious salads. Utilize your Thermomix to create tantalizing dressings that complement the flavors of the season. Blend fresh herbs, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and a touch of honey to create a zesty and herbaceous dressing. Toss it with a mixture of crisp lettuce, cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, radishes, and even some steamed broad beans for added texture. The Thermomix’s precise chopping capabilities ensure even and consistent results, making your salads a feast for both the eyes and the palate.
  5. Creative Frozen Treats: When the summer heat becomes too intense, turn to your Thermomix to create delicious frozen treats using seasonal fruits. Blend ripe peaches, raspberries, and a splash of orange juice to make refreshing fruit popsicles. If you’re looking for a creamier option, combine frozen bananas, a splash of coconut milk, and a drizzle of honey to create a delightful and healthy banana ice cream. The Thermomix’s powerful motor and ice-crushing capabilities make it easy to achieve a smooth and creamy texture, perfect for frozen desserts. Experiment with different fruit combinations, adding in herbs like basil or a sprinkle of toasted nuts for added complexity. These homemade frozen treats are not only a great way to beat the summer heat but also a healthier alternative to store-bought options.

Almond and tomato salmorejo

Salmorejo, gazpacho’s richer, deeper cousin, is a cool, creamy soup. I found this almond and tomatoe salmorejo recipe in the Guardian’s ‘20 best easy summer recipes – Part 1‘ and having read the recipe was so easy to convert to the Thermomix.

Salmorejo is a purée consisting of tomato and bread, originating from Cordoba in Andalucia, south Spain. It is made from tomatoes, bread, oil, garlic. Normally, the tomatoes are skinned and then puréed with the other ingredients. Of course, using a Thermomix we don’t have to waste time skinning the tomatoes as when we puree the dish at the end, the Thermomix will beautifully blend skin, pulp and seeds into one smooth soup.

Written by Monika Linton, this salmorejo de tomate con almendras ‘zoco’ – almond and tomato salmorejo is absolutely delicious. She advises to choose the ripest, tastiest tomatoes you can find. Traditionally, the soup is served with grapes or little cubes of piel de sapo melon.

Monika Linton, founded Brindisa in 1988, retailing products from some of Spain’s best food producers. She opened the first Tapas Brindisa restaurant in 2004 and there are now four Brindisa restaurants across London.
