Recipe's preparation

    Sicilian Eggplant Bolognese (with Spaghetti)
  1. 1. Add almonds to TM bowl. Chop 3 seconds, speed 9. Pour contents into separate bowl, keep aside (it's fine if there are still a few chunks, add extra time on if you want a smoother consistency)
    2. Without washing bowl, add garlic & onion. Chop 5 seconds, speed 5. Scrape down. Pour out into separate bowl.
    3. Without washing bowl, place TM Blade Cover into place. Put onion & garlic back in TM bowl and add 350 grams of the eggplant (keep aside 200g for later). Add the tin tomatoes, tomato paste, vegetable stock, red wine (or water), tomato passata, oregano, chilli flakes & cinnamon. Place simmering basket on top of lid (instead of MC).
    Cook 1 hour, 98 degrees, reverse, speed 1.
    4. Add remaining eggplant (200g) & chopped almonds.
    Cook 20 minutes, 98 degrees, reverse, speed 1 (simmering basket on top)
    5. While this is cooking, prepare and cook your choice of pasta to serve with the eggplant bolognese.
    6. Pour contents on top of pasta. Optional: serve with your choice of cheese & parsley.

*This is a TM6 recipe that uses the TM Blade Cover*
The Blade Cover stops the eggplant from being mushy and cooks the sauce perfectly in the first hour.
