30 minute Recipe for Salad with Truffle Pumpkin Sauce

Posted by Divine Chef on

I have been trying to increase my daily servings of fruits and vegetables lately by preparing and packing my own lunch to work. The trusty Thermomix has proven its usefulness again by making it so easy for me to prepare the more nutritious but hardier vegetables like asparagus, broccoli, potatoes, pumpkin, yam by steaming. Steaming is actually a great way of cooking vegetables as more nutrients, colour and flavour in cooked food are retained. With a maximum temperature of 120 degrees, say goodbye to overheating and charred food. This salad was prepared very quickly as I steamed the veg and whole egg together in the varoma trays and I did a quick saute of my shrimps with just a pinch of salt and pepper so that they is more flavour in the salad.

I also posted this recipe for Verace as we used their Truffled Cream of Pumpkin sauce to make a quick wholesome salad in minutes.
