      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!

    - Then cook 25min on Veroma. (Potatoes must be soft).

    This recipe turned out like soup for us and the potato didn't sit on top. It sank 🙁
    But it still tasted absolutely amazing and we will try it again with some cornflour next time or we will just make it as soup again with some dumpling to accompany it 😀
