    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

  1. Chop eggplant into cubes

    Drizzle olive oil, garlic salt and Portuguese chicken herb and mix through.

    Bake at 200c for about 20 mins, tossing at half way.

    Let cool for 5-10 mins.

    Place oats into thermo bowl, blitz until fine.

    Add all other ingredients

    Add eggplant

    Mix sp 4 until combined, adding more breadcrumbs if needed.

    Roll into balls (or even patties, although I have not done this)

    Either bake, steam in varoma or cook in pasta sauce.

    I steamed in a varoma dish for about 30 mins give or take with about a litre of water.

    I also cooked some in my pasta sauce for about 45 mins.
