      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

    Pie crust
  1. Grease and line a 24 cm pie/flan dish, and pre-heat oven to 180 degreess
  2. Combine all ingredients 30 seconds/speed 5
  3. Place pie crust mixture into pre-greased and lined dish. If necessary place a piece of baking paper on top and use your palm or the bottom of a glass cup to smooth the crust.
  4. Use a fork to make holes in the base (this will help the crust bake evenly) and bake at 180 degrees for 15 mins. Remove from oven.

  5. Pie filling
  6. Place onion in Thermomix bowl and chop 3 seconds/speed 5
  7. Add oil to bowl and saute 3 minutes/120 degrees/speed 1
  8. Meanwhile, place defrosted spinach into a clean chux cloth or nut milk bag and squeeze as much liquid out as you can (this will prevent the pie from being soggy-bottomed)
  9. Add spinach and all other filling ingredients into bowl with sauteed onion. Mix in reverse (Counter-clockwise operation) 20 seconds/speed 2, using the spatula continuously to stir the ingredients at the same time. (note: there will still be lumps of both cheeses throughout the mixture. That's good!!)
  10. Pour mixture onto the cooked pie crust, and bake at 180 degrees for 40-45 minutes until the centre is firm and top is browned

    Delicious, thank you for sharing! I didn’t have any mint to add, still very tasty. The chunks of cheeses were so yum!

    OMG! This recipe is the bomb!! If you are at all concerned about the amount of mint (my mum was) you can halve it and it still tastes great!
