    Very tasty. We couldn't work out from the recipe when the zucchini is meant to be chopped as the recipe says to add it at step 5 however that is 1 zucchini cut into thirds and no further chopping occurs after this as the thermomix is used in reverse from step 4 onwards. We ended up dicing by hand before adding it to the bowl. Thanks for the recipe.
