Mild Sausage Chilli – a HelloFresh recipe cooked in the Thermomix


We love HelloFresh in this family but since the arrival of Momo the Thermomix last November, we’ve not really used them much as we were simply too busy with other recipes.

If you’re not familiar with HelloFresh, they’re a food box company. You pick the number of meals and number of people that suit your family and they deliver ALL the ingredients you need to cook delicious food, really quickly!

The clever people at HelloFresh sent us an offer we couldn’t refuse and bam we’re back as one of their customers so now they’re delivering 4 million & 16 meals per month!!

So here I am combining my delicious HelloFresh ingredients with a little help from my friend Momo the Momix!

Mild Sausage Chilli – a HelloFresh recipe cooked in the Thermomix

Serves 4 – Gluten free

Active time: 10 minutes – Total time: 1 hour


  • 300g Basmati rice
  • 2 red peppers
  • 1 bunch chive
  • 60g cheddar cheese
  • 500g good quality pork sausage
  • 1 tin kidney beans
  • 1 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 carton diced tomatoes with garlic & onions
  • 1 chicken stock pot
  • 150g sour cream
  • Optional chilli flakes

Let’s go…

  1. Halve and remove the core from the red peppers, put them in your Thermomix. Turn on for 5 seconds / speed 5 (I like mine finely chopped so that the kids can’t pick them out or even notice them. If you like bigger chunks, adapt the speed accordingly).
  2. Set aside. Rinse and dry your Thermomix bowl.
  3. Grate your cheddar cheese by adding it to the Thermomix bowl. Turn on for 5 seconds / speed 6.
  4. Set aside. Rinse and dry your Thermomix bowl.
  5. Slice open the sausage, put the meat into your Thermomix bowl with a dollop of olive oil.
  6. Turn on for 5 min / 120C / speed 1.
  7. Add salt & pepper to taste and the chopped red peppers. Turn on for 5 min / 120C / speed 1.
  8. Add the smoked paprika, chopped tomatoes and chicken stock pot, chilli flakes (optional) and kidney beans. Remove the measuring cup and top the lead with the simmering basket instead. Turn on for 10 min / 100C / speed 1.
  9. Done! Set aside and keep warm while you cook the rice.
  10. Wash your Thermomix bowl – add a tiny amount of washing up liquid, 1 litre of water. Turn on for 50 seconds / 100C / speed 5. Empty and rinse thoroughly.
  11. Place 1 litre of water, a pinch of salt and 20g olive oil in the bowl.
  12. Insert simmering basket. Add the rice and cook for 21 min / Varoma / speed 2.

To serve:

Pile up the rice, add the chilli, a sprinkle of grated cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and some chopped chive (I use scissors).

Bon appetit x
