      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

    Roasted Vegetables
  1. 1. Preheat oven 220 degrees fan forced.

    2. Toss sweet potato in the oil, salt and rosemary leaves. (I use a freezer bag to make sure that they are all coated. Use about half the oil to start with and only add more if all the pices aren't covered. I cut up a whole sweet potato and use that so that I have some in the fridge for salads etc.)

    3. Place sweet potatoes and garlic on a baking tray covered with non-stick paper.

    4. Bake in a hot oven for 25 mins or until nearly soft and browned.

    5. Set aside to cool.

  2. Muffins
  3. 1. Grate cheese and set aside 15-20 sec speed 10.

    2. Add ham (or other cold meat or leave out for vegetarian version) to Closed lid. 2 secs,  Speed 4 or until desired size.

    3. Add remaining muffin ingredients to Closed lid including cheese and roasted garlic.

    4. 5 secs speed 3. Scrape sides and repeat if necessary.

    5. Tip mix into large mixing bowl.

    6. Gently stir in sweet potato.

    7. Pour into muffin tins lined with cases.

    8. Sprinkle walnuts or pepitas over the muffins.

    9. Bake for 20 -30  mins until skewer comes out clean.

    10. Serve warm with salad for a light lunch.
