THERMOMIX ® RECIPE
- 1 package Quorn meat-style balls, 280g, frozen (16-17 meat-style balls)
- 1 clove garlic
- 80 g onion
- 20 g olive oil, (1 Tbsp)
- 2 cans Tomatoes 400g, whole, chopped or crushed, or 800g fresh tomatoes
- salt to taste, 1 tsp recommended if using fresh tomatoes, tinned tomatoes are often already salted so less salt is required, possibly none
- ground black pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- Grated parmesan cheese to taste
1. Place garlic clove, onion and olive oil into mixing bowl and chop 5 sec / speed 5, then saute 3 min / Varoma (TM31) or 120 degrees (TM5) / speed 1.
2. Add tomatoes, salt & pepper.
3. If using whole tinned tomatoes, or fresh tomatoes, crush 7 sec / speed 6. If using chopped tinned tomatoes process for a lesser time until desired consistancy. If using crushed tinned tomatoes this step is not required.
4. Place frozen meat-style balls onto Varoma tray and place Varoma into position. Cook 20 min / Varoma / speed 1.
5. Place meat-style balls into Thermoserver and pour soy-sauce over, stirring balls in sauce to coat. (Soy sauce adds to the flavour of the meat-style balls.)
6. Pour tomato sauce over meat-style balls in Thermoserver.
If serving with optional parmesan cheese either stir through sauce before serving, and/or place on table for guests to self-apply to their individual meal.
1. Quorn meat-style balls contain wheat, egg & milk.
2. This recipe will be enjoyed by both those who eat meat, and those who don't. It can be served by a vegetarian to their non-vegetarian friends.
(This recipe is based upon the "Meatballs with Tomato Sauce" in the TM5 "The Basic Cookbook".)

Accessories you need
On a non-fast (normal) day:
* rice (or cauliflower rice - as per instructions below),
* spagetti (for spagetti & meat-balls),
* steamed potatoes (cook in bottom of varoma at same time as meat-style balls - increase cooking time as small new potatoes or potatoes cut into medium sized pieces will take 25-30 minutes - add extra water if required),
* other steamed vegetables (florets or 1cm cubes or slices - as for potato but cooking time will not need to be increased), or
* steamed carrot &/or zucchini tagliatelle cooked in varoma during last 5 minutes of cooking time (as per p118 of the Everyday Cookbook or p158 of The Basic Cookbook).
Can also serve with fresh bread and/or a green salad.
