      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Quinoa cornbread
  1. Place 50g quinoa in small bowl or mesh strainer and rinse well. Add stock and yoghurt and allow to soak for a few hours or overnight. Rinse.


    Cover Varoma tray with baking paper and spread out soaked quinoa (see photo). Cook 20 minutes / Varoma / speed 2. Set cooked quinoa aside in bowl and allow to cool.


    Preheat oven to 190˚C. Lightly grease a 20cm (8") cake tin with oil (see tip for lunchbox muffins or slice).


    To clean, dry TM bowl add quinoa flour, polenta, arrowroot, bicarb soda, baking powder, sugar and salt and mix 20 secs / speed 4.


    Add vinegar, oil, milk and cooked quinoa and mix 10 secs / speed 3. Scrape down and repeat until just combined. Add cooked corn (if using) and mix 5 secs / / speed 3-4.


    Pour mixture into prepared tin and bake 25-30 mins or until cooked. Turn out onto wire rack and allow to cool, or serve warm




For cornbread that you can slice and serve with your choice of topping, bake in a square cake tin or loaf tin. For easy to freeze lunch box snacks, bake in a slice tin (first pic) and cut into desired size or muffin or mini-muffin trays (second pic). Cooking time will vary so adjust accordingly and keep an eye on the oven. Cooking time given in recipe is for a 20cm (8in) cake tin.

To mill your own quinoa flour, add 80g quinoa to clean, dry TM bowl and mill 2 mins / speed 10 (see note below).

NOTE: Quinoa grains have a natural bitter-tasting coating so unless you know that your quinoa is pre-washed and dried, you will need to do this step before milling or just use store-bought quinoa flour.
