Thermomix Model

  • Appliance TM 5 image
    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.
    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!

Chicken & Zucchini Meatballs



  • 9. March 2016 - 13:51

    These were really good. It was a very hot day when I made them and didn't want to turn the oven on so I put them in the varoma for 30mins, varoma temp speed 3 and they turned out quite well. I used chicken mince and my family hates coriander so I replaced that with a table spoon of Italian herbs. Was so easy and the kids loved them. Put some in their school lunch today. Much healthier than other chicken meatball recipes I have seen. My hubby on a health kick so trying to cut out carbs, was great to find a recipe that had no breadcrumbs as most do. Will make again. Thank you.
