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!

  • My husband loved this recipe!

    My husband loved this recipe! The whole orange segments and whole olives gave your palate a nice flavour when you spooned them up.

    I used lamb shoudler, EDC vegetable stock (few tbsps- no added water), carrots and peas and skipped the dates. I shortened the cooking time (because I had to go out). Turned out fantatastic- Thanks so much for the recipe. 

    My husband has told me twice now- "You can cook that again!". Win.
