Why spend unnecessarily when you can easily cook at home? Here are some tips to cut cost by cooking at home. Especially if you have a Thermomix® at home, it’s even easier to save time, effort and money with this smart and convenient life-changing kitchen all-in-one multi-cooker.
1) The more you cook, the more you’ll save
If you cook daily, you’ll save on pantry basics that you can use again and again instead of buying for a long list of ingredients for each dish every time you cook. Thus, you’ll save more when you cook more often!
2) Meal planning
When you meal plan, you’ll saving every morsel of ingredient and also cooking a larger batch to portion out into meals that you can cook easily each time. Cooked food do freeze well, simply reheat to cut cooking time on busy week days. With meal planning, you’ll also not be needing math to divide recipes into fewer portions because you can simply cook the entire recipe and divide out into meals.
3) Freeze herbs and aromatics
Avoid wastage by freezing herbs and aromatics that may not be finished up before they turn bad. Slice or freeze in convenient 10-20g portions and stretch the use-by dates of your perishable herbs and aromatics longer.
4) Save time by cooking multiple dishes in one go
With Thermomix® , you can use the Varoma steaming dish to steam cook multiple dishes while cooking a soup or rice (simmering basket) in the mixing bowl. Stack the Varoma dish with a meat, egg, or vegetables while cooking rice in the simmering basket to multi-layer cook several dishes at the same time. The leftover rice water may even be used to cook soup or make a starchy dessert! No waste! Click here for more tips on using the Varoma.
