I have always been passionate about food and community. I studied culinary management to broaden my skills and knowledge in all things cuisine and hospitality and I relish an opportunity to create in the kitchen. I love to develop recipes with wholefoods that are approachable, authentic and packed with flavour. Bringing people together around the table is important to me and I believe food is the greatest and most accessible tool for generosity and hospitality.

Blender bolognese

SAVE TIME WITH THIS MEAL PREP TIP 

A great Bolognese starts with a great base of flavour, but this can be time consuming. Using the Vibe blender to chop your vegetables for the base of your sauce is not just a time saver, but it really helps to achieve a fine consistency that will melt away in your sauce, giving it amazing flavour.

WHAT HOW IT'S DONE HERE 


INGREDIENTS

1 onion, peeled 
1 carrot
1 stick celery 
3 garlic cloves, peeled 
500g beef mince 
700g passata 
Fresh basil 

METHOD

1.   Chop the onion, carrot and celery roughly so that it is small enough to fit through the top of the blender jug. 
2.   Set the machine to nut mode and turn the speed down to low.

3.   With the machine running, gradually add the vegetables, starting with the carrot, then the onion, celery and garlic. Blend briefly until it becomes a rough puree. 
4.   Heat some olive oil in a pan over medium heat and add the chopped vegetables from the blender. Fry briefly before adding the meat. 
5.   Cook for 5-10 minutes or until caramelised. 
6.   Add the passata and a few leaves of fresh basil and simmer for at least 20 minutes, covered. 
7.   Pour the sauce into a large vacuum canister and allow it to cool with the lid off. Once it has cooled down, place the lid on and use the hand pump to vacuum seal. Refrigerate until ready to use.
