      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. Step one

    Put onion and garlic into bowl and chop for 3-6 seconds on level 5 (make sure MC is inserted)

    scrape down sides of bowl

    Add 30 grams of extra virgin olive oil 

    Sautee for 3 minutes on 100 degrees on speed 3


    Step Two

    Add two heaped tablespoons of vegetable stock (see basics stock recipe) 

    Add one litre of water

    Add 400 grams of brown rice (soaked overnight is best but can be soaked in the fridge for 2-4 hours and still cook nicely) 

    cook for 34 minutes on reverse speed 1.5 at 100 degrees (insert MC)


    Step Three

    Slice your chicken into large chunks (I use breast chicken) 

    slice your capsicum into chunks

    Place the chicken and capsicum (plus any other vegetables to reach the max point on your bowl) and cook for another 25 minutes at speed 1.5 reverse at 100 degrees (keep MC IN)


    Step Four

    Stir thoroughly ( your mixture will be runny and not gluggy like the white rice version), pour into your server and add lid, let sit for 15-25 minutes to go slightly sticky then serve.

I used brown rice from the supermarket but this recipe can use organic as well.

If you'd like a slightly different taste use coconut oil instead of EVOO

Chicken stock would work instead of vege stock if you haven't got any.
