      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!

Accessories you need



1. Only refrigerate for 30 minutes, or they get too cold in the centre.  If preparing earlier, varoma for 15 minutes at step 5. Pan fry at this point if not all-in-one meal.

2. Line the tray with wet baking paper to stop anything going through to the veggies, but leave some holes uncovered to allow the steam to get through.


1.  For GF sub breadcrumbs for 2 slices of blitzed GF bread or cornflour.

2. Want more spice?  Add 1/4 tsp of chilli at step 3.  

3. More herbs?  Add 1 tsp of dried herbs or 20g of fresh herbs at step 3.

  • These were a good mid week

    These were a good mid week meal. I added all the sweet chilli sauce to the mix as I fried them. I also sprinkled sesame seeds on them before cooking. It made 6 good sized patties.

  • My 7yo son helped me cook

    Submitted by Fisch79 on 19. January 2016 - 20:43.

    My 7yo son helped me cook this for dinner tonight and we did all except last step. Rissoles were cooked nicely and not dry. Veggies all cooked to perfection. I'm glad I prepped most of the veg beforehand otherwise would have taken a lot longer. We avoided fridge as dinner was already running behind. Didn't seem to affect the cooking. Would add some extra flavour next time, although kids enjoyed and 7yo had thirds... It's a rarity as he is usually the most fussy eater in the house.

    These are so simple yet so tasty.  Had them for a girls lunch recently and made our own GF Bread Crumbs to make them Gluten Free.  So delicious, I can't wait to make them for my family.   Love

    Happy Thermomixing!

    Hubby and I enjoyed, added extra herbs which we think we're certainly needed and next time would do a sauce/light gravy to accompany.

    Hi Megan.  Thanks for the feedback.  Yes, the choc-chip cookies are a big hit in our family too.  I guess the amount of vege stock would depend on what flavours you have put in there and how strong it is because remember that it won't be watered down per se in the chicken and the stock is a concentrate.  The basic rissole recipe deliberately doesn't contain a lot of herbs and spices, so that you can add what suits your own tastes, so maybe try what you suggested and then you can adjust up or down next time.  I also like doing this with sweet potato and that's great too.

    Hi Tracey, looks like a great recipe and can't wait to try. If I were to add the thermomix vege stock, would you recommend one tablespoon of it instead of dried or fresh herbs? I've looked at your other recipes too and I think the chocolate chip cookies will get a good workout this weekend.  Cooking 7  Big Smile

    I am new to the Thermi and cooking world and I didn't realise that reserve meant "put aside" until after I had added and tried to mix the carrots in.

    I also didn't know what baste meant so I had to google it. Maybe the worlds could be changed to help newbies like myself?

    Otherwise overall these were wonderful! I will defiantly be making them again! The consistency of the mash potatoe!!

  • Tried these for tea tonight

    Submitted by Rhondajc on 26. July 2015 - 14:27.

    Tried these for tea tonight and did just about everything I could to get it wrong.  Forgot to allow the 30 minute fridge time and then had the salt container lid fall off While I was shaking into the bowl. Despite both these things they worked really well.  I will add some more herbs, garlic and maybe even chilli for my "flavour" fiends next time. Used hot tap water in the bowl to start the steaming prices, so didn't actually need the last 5 minutes.  Thanks for the recipe.

  • Good recipe. But mine needed

    Submitted by matoos55 on 14. July 2015 - 13:13.

    Good recipe. But mine needed more seasoning and because there were so many veggies the rissoles took much longer to cook. Might be better to cook rissoles and veggies separatley.
