      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      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


    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.
