Recipe's preparation

    For the balls:
  1. 1. Line your varoma tray with a damp piece of baking paper. Poke a few holes in it with a knife. This will prevent the balls from sticking, and make it super easy to clean the tray. 

    2. Add garlic, parsley, and shallots to mixing bowl. Mince 3 secs/speed 7. 

    3. Add marinara mix and fish to bowl. Turbo 1 second/12 times.

    4. Add egg, cream, breadcrumbs, veg stock, and pepper. Mix 20 secs/speed 4. 

    5. Form small balls and place them onto varoma tray and into base of varoma dish, leaving small gaps between each bowl. You can form balls using damp hands, or by using teaspoons to quinelle.

    6. Place varoma in fridge (if you have the space) while you prepare your veg/sauce/pasta.

  2. Veg/sauce/pasta:
  3. 1. Prepare your veggies for steaming. Take the zucchini and cut in half lengthways. Using a potato peeler, peel stirps of the zucchini ensuring that a strip of skin is down each strip. Save the centre of the zucchini for use in the sauce. Prepare your snowpeas by washing and taking the tops off with a sharp knife.

    2. Add celery, onion, leek, and garlic to bowk. Chop 5 seconds/speed 7. Scrape down bowl.

    3. Add olive oil and sautee 4 mins/110C/speed 1.

    4. Add zucchini middle cut into 3 cm chunks, and cauliflower florettes. Chop 4 secs/speed 5.

    5. Add cream, wine, stock paste, and water. Put lid on, and place varoma into position. Cook 20 mins/varoma/speed 2. 

    6. Remove varoma and place MC into position. Blend 1.30 mins/speed 7. 

    7. Remove varoma tray and scatter snowpeas and zucchini strips on top of any balls in the varoma bowl. Place tray back into position.

    8. Working quickly, scatter pasta into the sauce, using spatula to push down and immerse pasta into sauce. Place lid on, and varoma back into position. Continue to cook 6 mins/varoma/speed 1/reverse.

    9. Serve pasta with ballls on top. Garnish with sliced spring onions.

    I'm going to try this tonight - don't have seafood, but do have chicken mince so I'll give it a go with that.

    Okay - update - It was lovely with chicken too  I cooked it for about 4 minutes longer at the first varoma stage, becuase it was chicken, everything else was the same. Yumm - thanks for sharing!
