Refreshing Mint Cucumber Melon Soup Recipe

REFRESHING mint cucumber melon soup

I got a Thermomix over a year ago as a wedding gift from some family in Vancouver, and I’ve only just opened the box to use it!

Quite a few readers have emailed me about recipes using the Thermomix as well (if you are in the US, then you probably haven’t come across the Thermomix so read below to find out about it, but it’s become very popular in Australia, Germany, Canada, and Taiwan among other places).

I’ve got quite a lot of kitchen equipment, and so I wasn’t sure what the Thermomix would add. I was quite wrong apparently, and I found it fantastic to use to make soups (although if you have a Vitamix or Blendtec, then those work just as well for this purpose).  The blender is very powerful and making soups and mash is easy with this.

Super Fast Paleo Smoked Salmon Salad Recipe

paleo easy smoked salmon salad recipe

I’m here in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, and salmon is one of the popular local foods here. While I struggled to find smoked salmon in the US, it’s really easy to get it in the throughout UK, and it’s delicious.

If you haven’t ever had smoked salmon before, it’s basically something you eat straight out of the packaging (no need to cook). It tastes like salmon but with a salty, smoky flavor, and its texture is that of raw fish (a bit drier than sashimi-grade). When you buy it, it’s often already sliced into thin slices (thinner than sashimi salmon).

As a child, I was initially terrified of eating smoked salmon (I was terrified of eating anything “raw”), and it took my quite a while before I started to enjoy smoked salmon. Now, I love it!
