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!

    Perfect and easy! I substituted the carrot for sweet potato as we had none!
    Thank you!

    This was really yummy! And yes, easy....

    I usually use kidney beans but tried the lentils this time and it was a stroke of genius for my veg phobic kids..... they had no idea they were in there. I'll definitely use the recipe again.

    The recipe made plenty allowing me to freeze a portion too.

    A winner all round, thank you for sharing.

    A huge hit in our house, although I only had soy beans,  turned out beautiful and so easy

    I replace the lentils with kidney beans  Big Smile We love how quick and simple this recipe is!!

  • 16. August 2016 - 20:16

    I make it without the lentils as I am trying to avoid carbs, it still works well and is now a firm favourite dish in our house.

    Love this. I add kidney beans and capsicum. Serve with rice, sour cream and corn chips. Yum

    We made this tonight for dinner and I really have to say we didn't enjoy it. Husband and I both agreed that it was really watery and tasteless.

    I'm sorry to say we won't be making this one again. But it's always nice to try!

    This was a huge hit! Absolutely delicious ☺

    I swapped lentils for kidney beans (but probably should have put the beans in later with only 5 or so minutes to go). Kids loved it with rice, and some chunky tomato salsa on top. Thanks!
