      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.

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place all ingredients in TM bowl and chop 3 seconds / Speed 3.


    This marinade can be used for a multitude of uses.  Rub onto chicken or lamb and grill. In this case it is used as a base for a Tagine. You will not require it all for this recipe so you have another meal organised later in the week. Marinade will last 7 days in the fridge.

  • 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.
