  • I was really looking forward

    I was really looking forward to this and unfortunately was a little dissappointed. It tasted ok, a little on the bland side but I think I can tweak it to give it more flavour.

  • The flavours of the stew was

    Submitted by Purple turtle circus on 17. October 2012 - 20:44.

    The flavours of the stew was surprisingly quite good given that no onion or garlic were included (a usual inclusion for most of the things I cook). Am still getting familiar with the TM, so perhaps I did something wrong, but I found that the chicken stuck on the butterfly. Am going to try adding chickpeas in next time.

  • think it might be better just

    Submitted by CathyM on 15. November 2011 - 20:29.

    think it might be better just to heat the stock in the TM BOWL and then add the couscous. just mix for 10 seconds on reverse to combine then let it sit with the lid on until it absorbs it all. sorry for the problem. the first time i did it it was fine then the last time i did it i had the same problem.

    i will adjust the recipe when iget TIME tmrc_emoticons.~ tmrc_emoticons.;)

  • I had no luck with this at

    Submitted by gehaland on 11. November 2011 - 20:13.

    I had no luck with this at all.  My cous cous was big lumps at the end, and I used the butterfly.  What am I doing wrong?

  • Great dish - loved it -

    Great dish - loved it - except I forgot to use the butterfly for the cous cous so it didn't mix properly and got very stuck together... my fault!! Flavours were great though!

  • This is a recipe i have been

    Submitted by CathyM on 16. January 2011 - 15:51.

    This is a recipe i have been making for my family for ages and only just converted to the Thermomix. i think it is just as good and a lot quicker in the Thermomix. Everyone loves it at home

    if you want to make it even quicker chop your chorizo and zucchini on speed 5 for about 3 secs.

    i prefer mine sliced thinly so you can taste all the flavours separately
