      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. 1. Add chicken to TMClosed lid and mince - Turbo/2-3x/1sec. Set aside and clean bowl.


    2. Add onion, garlic and oil to Closed lid and chop - 2-3 sec/speed 6, then saute - 5 min/120 deg/speed 2.


    3. Place celery, carrot, tomatoes, capsicum, spinach and herbs into Closed lid and chop - 10 seconds/speed 5.


    4. Add chicken, stock and sugar and give it a good stir with spatula, then cook with MC OFF and simmering basket on lid to prevent splatter - Counter-clockwise operation25 min/Varoma temp/speed 0.5.


    5. In the meantime, if you are using pasta, you can empty contents into Thermoserver and cover with boiling hot water (from kettle). Replace lid and allow to rest for 15-20 min. No need for a stove!!


    6. Serve with parmesan cheese, and a good glass of Red!!

**If you're using zucchini noodles, place in serving bowls. The heat from the bolognese will be enough to soften 'zoodles'. No need to cook or steam.

    Does anyone know the calories per serve for this recipe as I am trying it instead of Michelle Bridges 12WBT spaghetti? It’s smells delicious.

  • I used a cooked chicken

    I used a cooked chicken instead of chicken breasts.  Unfortunately this turned out to be a bad move - either I added to much chicken or cooked it too long.  Was very tasty but the consistency was like tuna.  Next time I will follow the recipe properly.  I love the amount of veg.
