      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!

If avoiding dairy - omit the cream and cheese and replace with  an extra egg or two.

I added proscuito, spinach and pre-cooked pumpkin to the vegetable mix - it was delicious - will definitely be a favourite recipe.
