      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

  1. Place Buckwheat in Steaming basket and water in TM bowl. Cook 15 minutes Varoma speed 2.


    At the same time place Yams  and Kumara in Varoma tray and steam as  Buckwheat cooks. The Yams will take longer to cook so place them in the lower tray of Varoma dish.


    Meanwhile whisk together dressing ingredients.


    Remove Buckwheat from steaming basket and pour over dressing while still hot.


    While Buckwheat cools slightly finely slice celery and figs


    Stir through remaining ingredients and serve.

Seeds used in this recipe were a mixture of sunflower and sesame. Alternatively a combination almonds and pistachios works well. These can be dry roasted in the  Thermomix or in a pan on the stove while Buckwheat cooks.

Replace Buckwheat with Bulgur wheat or Puy Lentils cooked the same way

 Yams are  specific to New Zealand - you can either omit or  add a root vegetable ;like  parsnip or carrot
