      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. Place the brown onion and garlic cloves into the TM bowl and chop 5 seconds at speed 6.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl.

  2. Add butter and olive oil, and saute 3 minutes/120 degrees/speed 1.

  3. Add the thyme and lemon strips and saute a further 2 minutes/120 degrees/speed 1.

  4. Insert the butterfly whisk and add the rice, along with the shredded brussel sprouts.  Saute 1 min/120 degrees//speed 1.5, without measuring cup.

  5. Add white wine and saute 2 min/Varoma//speed 1.5.

  6. Add stock paste and water, and cook 13 min/100 degrees//speed 1.5, placing the simmering basket instead of the measuring cup onto mixing bowl lid.

  7. While the rice is cooking, pour the 400g oil into a large saucepan (it should come 2 cm up the sides).  Place on high heat and, once very hot, use a slotted spoon to add a handful of the quatered sprouts.  Fry until golden and crispy, the transfer to kitchen towel and keep warm whilst continuing with the remaining brussel sprouts.

  8. When the rice is done, transfer to a thermoserver, stir through parmesan, blue cheese, lemon zest and half the fried sprouts.

  9. Serve with the remaining sprouts spooned on top with a drizzle of lemon juice.

    Is it true this recipe requires 400g of oil? Sounds like a lot.

    I really loved the flavour of this. I'm not a fan of Brussels sprouts, but I bought some to try this recipe out. They were delicious, not bitter at all. However, for a Thermomix recipe, there is a LOT of manual labour involved (chopping, shredding, peeling, grating, juicing, frying!) which I hate doing now that I have a Thermomix, if it weren't for this I would give the recipe 5 stars. Next time I make it I'll try to be strategic and do some of those things in the thermie and set aside before I start cooking. I also added 800g water as I like my risotto "loose". Thanks for a delicious recipe!

    This had a great flavour, next time i wouldnt worry about frying the sprouts...messy and quite dangerous if your sprouts have been recenlty washed like mine tmrc_emoticons.;-)

    Would probably cut the cheese down next time too but otherwise really nice and a great way to use up brussel sprouts!
