    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

    Quinoa salad
  1. Thoroughly rinse quinoa or soak for 30 minutes if time permits.

    Add water and stock to the TM bowl. Pour quinoa into simmer basket and place into bowl. 

    Cook on varoma temp, 18 minutes, speed 3. 

    Once cooked, tip remaining water out of the bowl and allow quinoa to cool down. Add quinoa to Thermoserver and put in the fridge to cool. 


  2. Place garlic, onion, parsley, coriander, ginger and chilli into bowl and chop for 3 seconds on speed 7.

    You may need to scrape down sides of bowl and repeat. 

    Put into the Thermoserver with the quinoa. 


  3. Do not rinse the bowl. To make the dressing, add olive oil, lime juice, lemon juice, orange juice and tamari soy sauce to the TM bowl.

    Mix on speed 6 for 10 seconds. 


  4. Chop cherry tomatoes in half and dice the capsicum and put on top of quinoa salad.


  5. Mix the dressing through only when you are ready to serve. 



Quinoa can be made ahead.

You could use rice or couscous instead of quinoa.

You could add/serve with shredded chicken or grilled salmon.

Chilli can be omitted if not to your liking!

    Quite good. Works well as a side dish. Would also be good with BBQ meat. I left out the onion as it can be quite strong when it’s raw.

    This salad is delicious, quick and easy! The dressing is a nice summery taste. I added slices of orange, cucumber, crumbed fetta and wedges of boiled egg on top for extra protein. Thanks for this yummy recipe  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Great recipe. I add carrots at the same time as the onion to get a few more veggies in there. Delicious.
