      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. Thoroughly clean all equipment.

  2. Place milk in mixing bowl. Heat for 8 minutes at 40C on speed 3, or until milk reaches 40C.

  3. Dilute rennet tablet with non-chlorinated water.

  4. Once milk has reached 40C, add Mesophilic culture and diluted rennet tablet on speed 3 for 30 seconds.

  5. Pour immediately into warmed Thermoserver, and quickly secure lid, or use the base of Thermoserver for a more secure seal. Leave for approximately 90 minutes or until a firm set has formed, covered with a clean towel to keep it warm.

  6. When the curd has a firm set, cut into 1cm cubes. Secure lid, and leave for a further 60 minutes, covered with a towel.

  7. Then gently stir the curd every 5 minutes for 30 minutes to release the whey. Scoup the curds into a cheesecloth lined simmer basket to drain overnight in the fridge. Reserve the whey.

  8. Combine the salt, boiled water and vinegar until salt is dissolved, and chill overnight in the fridge.

  9. Remove the drained Feta, and place in a container with just enough brine to cover. Leave in the brine for 5 hours before serving.

  10. Serve Feta cut into cubes accompanied with Thermomix Basil Pesto and cheery tomatoes, or however you would like to enjoy it.


Accessories you need



The Feta can be kept in the brine for up to a month. The Feta will draw the salt from the brine.

Use the reserved whey in place of liquid in pizza dough, bread dough, smoothies, soup, casseroles, curries or just drink, as it is loaded with nutrients and flavour.
