      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Place chopped Parmiggiano Reggiano in bowl and blitz for 5 sec speed 9

    2. Place all other ingredients in bowl and mix 15 seconds on speed 4.

    3. If mixture is too chunky you can repeat this step but only 5 seconds at a time until the mix is the consistency you like.

    4. Roll into balls with damp hands.

    5. Roll balls through breadcrumbs or almond meal.

    6. Place in oiled oven tray and drizzle olive oil over the top of the balls.

    7. Bake in Oven for 30 minutes at 180 degrees, until golden brown.

    8. Serve with a salad or cooked vegetables.

I used Ricotta brought at the Deli counter.

You can add more anchovies if you wish but watch the amount of salt you add.
