    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

    Tuna and sweetcorn Casserole
  1. Prehaet oven to 180 degreees. Drain tuna an corn by emptying into simmering basket
  2. Grate chees 5-10 sec sp 5 set aside. Wash and dry bowl
  3. Chop onion 3 sec sp 5. scrape sides down
  4. Add butter and saute onion Closed lid 3 min 120 degrees sp 1
  5. Add milk, sugar, flour, salt and pepper. Cook 4 min 100 degrees sp 3. Your goal is a thickening white sauce. While this cooks lighlty beat eggs in a small bowl.
  6. Add drained tuna, corn and 1/2 cup of the cheese. (leave some to dot the top) Stir to combine reverse Counter-clockwise operationsp 2. Gradually add slightly beaten eggs through hole in the top of the lid. 30 sec should be enough to combine all ingredients. You do not want to completely shred the tuna. A few chunks are good.
  7. Pour into a casserole dish, top with remaining grated cheese and dobs of butter and bake for approx 1 hour. It is cooked when firm in the middle when you press on it. It can also be cooked in individual ramekins for about 20 mins. (NB If browning too quickly turn tem in ovent back a notch)

    Serve on its own or with a tossed salad. Can also be eaten cold. I have also reheated portions for lunch at work the next day.

Accessories you need



This recipe is one I have converted from a dish my mum made after my aunty had treated us to it. It has been handed down and well loved but while it was called a remkin dish we always cooked it all n one dish and just extended the cooking time. Watch the top - if it is getting too brown turn your oven down a little. I am not a big seafood or tuna eater but this dish I love. You could add other vegetables such as capsicum if you wished. I would love to know what you do with variations

    Tried this tonight and just a couple of things.

    Firstly, recipe doesn't mention cooking it in the oven or at what temperature.  Had to work that out myself.

    Secondly, I think adding pasta would enhance it's taste.
