      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      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!

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1.     Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

    2.     Line a baking tray with baking paper.

    3.     Place onion, carrot & zucchini into mixing bowl & chop 5   seconds/speed 6. Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl. 

    4.     Add remaining ingredients & mix 30 seconds/speed 4.

    5.     Roll mixture into balls & place on prepared tray.

    6.     Bake 14-18 minutes or until cooked through (check after 14 minutes  as you don't want the meatballs to dry out). 


Accessories you need



Serve with cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles for a healthy meal. 

Use feta instead of cottage cheese & add sundried tomatoes for a different alternative.

    Great tasting meatballs
    I made them into rissole size and served with salad. I added breadcrumbs because the mixture was quite wet. The whole family enjoyed them.

    These Turkey meatballs are delicious! Since being shown this recipe I have just made them for the third time in a couple of weeks. Tried making them in different sizes and although they took a little longer in my oven than time stated in the recipe they all turned out great. I can't stopped eating them!
