Recipe's preparation

    Rice, Vegetables & Chicken-style fillets
  1. ) Place salt into TM bowl. Place basket into TM bowl & weigh rice into basket. (Up to 400g of rice can be used. 400g of rice is, however, very firmly packed, and if you can instead use 300g of rice you will get a better result.)


  2. ) Weigh water into TM bowl pouring water through rice. Put lid on TM bowl.


  3. ) Pre-cut all vegetables (peeled where appropriate) into 1-2cm pieces/florets or 0.5-1cm slices. If using snow peas cut in half & remove stalk. Place vegetables that cook in 15 minutes or less on the top tray of the Varoma (e.g. asparagus, peas, snow peas, green beans, broccoli, capsicum, pieces of onion), and those that take more than 15 minutes to cook in the bottom of the Varoma (e.g. cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, pumpkin, potato). Place the frozen quorn fillets on the top tray. Put the Varoma into place.


    Steam 15 min / Varoma / speed 3


  4. ) Remove rice & place in ThermoServer. Fluff up rice. Place baking paper on top of rice. Also remove cooked vegetables from top tray and set aside on top of baking paper in Thermoserver.


  5. ) Cut each (nearly thawed) Quorn fillet into about 6 strips cross-wise and place back onto top Varoma tray. Replace Varoma back into position on top of TM with the vegetables still in the bottom which require longer steaming.


    Steam 5 min / Varoma / speed 2 (total 20 minutes steaming to this point)


  6. ) Remove Quorn pieces & any vegetables that have finished cooking (e.g. cauliflower, carrot, zucchini) & set aside in Thermoserver with any vegetables removed earlier.


  7. ) Re-assemble Varoma.


    Steam 5 min / Varoma / speed 2 (total 25 minutes steaming to this point). Remove any cooked vegetables (e.g. pumpkin - but do not cook pumpkin until it is soft) and set aside in Thermoserver.


    Repeat if necessary (total 30 minutes steaming to this point). Remove cooked vegetables (e.g. potato - but do not cook potato until it is soft) and set aside in Thermoserver.


  8. Satay Sauce
  9. ) Place garlic, ginger, onion, & oil into TM bowl.


    Chop 3 sec / speed 5.


  10. ) Add spices to bowl (Don't drop into middle or they will land on top of the blades. Place to the side of bowl.)


    Saute 3 min / Varoma (120C for TM5) / speed 1


  11. ) Add the remaining Satay Sauce ingredients.


    Cook 15 min / 100C / speed 1


    (Sauce can be cooled, placed into sterilized bottles and refrigerated at this point for later use.)


  12. Bringing the dish together
  13. ) Put butterfly in place.


    Add cooked vegetables & cooked Quorn fillets into TM bowl on top of hot Satay Sauce.


    Cook 5 min / 100C / Counter-clockwise operation / speed 1


  14. ) Serve with rice.

Recipe also suitable for TM5.

If you wish to use brown rice do not remove after 15 minutes steaming time but leave in for full time of steaming as brown rice needs 30-35 minutes to cook.

For egg-free do not use Quorn which contains egg-white.

Additional vegetables can be used instead of Quorn - see Ingredients.

400g can of chick-peas, drained, can be used instead of Quorn. Add with vegetables into satay sauce.

Tofu can also be used instead of Quorn. Cube 300g of firm or extra-firm regular Tofu (not silken) and lightly fry in oil. Set aside with cooked vegetables in Thermoserver. Add with vegetables into satay sauce.

The recipe from which this is a variantion used soy sauce & teryaki sauce. This recipe instead uses the ingredients of teriyaki sauce - garlic, ginger, brown sugar, water & soy sauce. If you wish to instead use teriyaki sauce omit the garlic, ginger, brown sugar, water, & 1/2 (35g) of the soy sauce. Replace with 100g of teryaki sauce.

For a yellower satay sauce add 1/2 teaspoon of tumeric with the spices. Tumeric is a wonderful spice but it has the side-effect of also colouring the plastic of the TM that comes in touch with it (from grey to green) like the lid of the bowl, spatula, butterfly. This is an aesthetic change only which does not effect the cooking of subsequent dishes.

    This recipe is devine, thank you so much for sharing. As we aren't vegetarians so we used pork tenderloin instead of quorn and will cook this recipe with chicken next time.
