      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


    Place cubed parmesan in Thermomix and blitz on speed 9. Combine Parmesan and polenta in a separate bowl.


    Place all remaining ingredients in the Thermomix and blend for 15 seconds speed 6 to form a coarse paste.


    Form the falafel into golf ball sized spheres and coat in mixture of polenta and parmesan.


    These can be cooked straight away but they improve in texture on sitting in the fridge for 30 minutes. They can be prepared well in advance and stored in fridge.


    To cook the falafel put equal quantities of butter and oil in a non”stick frypan and shallow fry. I used 2 Tbsp of oil and 2 tbsp of butter. Cook until crisp and golden.






Serving Suggestions,: Soft yogurt flat bread, greek yogurt, coleslaw and chilli jam

These are also very good reheated and can be served as finger food or a lunch box snack.
