Makes 1 loaf
Prep: 5 mins, plus 30 mins proving • Cooking: 45 mins
350g warm water
50g black treacle
14g (2 tsp) dried instant yeast
500g Healthy Baker plain flour
1 tsp sea salt
60g sunflower seeds
60g poppy seeds
30g olive oil
40g pepitas (green pumpkin seeds kernels)
Place all the ingredients, except the pepitas, into mixing bowl and knead for 2½ min/closed lid position/interval.
Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Form dough into a rough oval and place on baking tray. Sprinkle with the pepitas. Leave in a warm place (for proving) for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
Bake in oven for 40-45 minutes or until golden and bottom sounds hollow when tapped.
Note: Proving time will vary depending on temperature. On a cool day you can try the following: Place the covered dough on top of a warm heater. Warm the oven for 5 minutes then turn it off and use this as a warm place for the dough to rise. Place covered dough on top of the stove with the oven on a low temperature below.
Prep: 5 mins • Cooking: 25 mins
1 small red capsicum, seeded
1 brown onion, halved
2 garlic cloves
40g olive oil
400g orange sweet potato, peeled, roughly chopped
400g can diced tomatoes
60g tomato paste
750g vegetable stock
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Place capsicum, onion and garlic into the mixing bowl and chop 3 sec/speed 7. Scrape down sides of bowl.
Add oil and cook 3 min/Varoma/speed 1. Add potatoes, tomatoes, tomato paste and stock and cook with cup removed and Thermomix basket placed on top 15-20 min/100°C/speed 1, or until potatoes are very tender and cooked.
Blend 30 sec/speed 8, gradually increasing speed from speed 1 to speed 8, or until smooth. Season to taste with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and vinegar.
Note: the Thermomix basket on top instead of the cup lets the steam escape while the soup cooks, but prevents the soup from spitting out.
