One of the best things about the Thermomix is how easy it is to make bread. Before I had my thermie, I would occasionally make bread in the bread-maker using a store-bought bread mix. Now I just chuck everything in the Thermomix, let it do it's thing, pop it in the Thermoserver to rise and then cook it in the oven. Too easy!!
This rosemary & garlic herb loaf is the perfect thing to make to go with a big batch of soup. There is nothing better than dunking a slice or two of this crusty bread into a hot bowl of soup.
For a delicious variation, why not sprinkle over some finely grated parmesan before cooking?
