      Recipe is created for

      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!

  3. Add carrots, celery, onion and "other vegetables" to hide (optional), and chop 3 sec/speed 5 - scrape down and repeat for a finer consistancy.

If you don't need to "hide" the vegetables, you can also add frozen peas and/or corn in step 4. All in all just beware not filling over max - 2 l in your TM31 or 2.2 l in your TM5.

Alternatively, sir through some baby spinach leaves after cooking, to add more leafy greens into your diet.

    Lovely! Smile

    Super simple specially for those busy days, great for a fridge clean up too! I didn't use celery but added bok shoy, green beans, some cauliflower, whatever I had left in the fridge. Added some sweet chilli.

    Have to say I got home late from work and had out of date beef mince in the fridge. Searched beef mince and this recipe came up. Hubby said that sounds unappetizing and insisted I put some med/hot chilies in and we both have to say that this meal was pretty good! Didn't have celery but otherwise followed the recipe exactly and it was great. Thankyou
