      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

  1. 1. Heat milk to 95*C

    2. Pour into Thermoserver, add 50ml of white vinegar and stir ONCE only. ( stirring more will cause curds to break up)

    3. Allow to rest for 20mins

    4. Gently lift curds using a slotted spoon or strainer.

    5. Drain for 20mins in Ricotta hoop or strainer

    Ricotta is ready to eat immediately or can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.


Accessories you need



Thermoserver useful but not essential

Repeat process with remaining whey by placing another 50ml vinegar and stir once, allow to rest for further 20mins.

For creamier Ricotta add 100ml Cream
