    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

    Base:
  1. Mill cashews and walnuts 10sec / speed 8. scrape bowl if necesary so that the milled nuts are loose in the bowl and not sticking to it. 

  2. Add garlic and chop 2 sec / speed 8

     

     

      

  3. Add remaining veg and chop 5 sec / speed 6 (check the bowl, scrape and add another second or 2 if required)

  4. Add all remaining ingredients except frozen peas and corn

  5. cook 25min / 100°c / speed 2.5 Counter-clockwise operation

  6. add the frozen veg and give it a quick stir through with the spatula.

  7. Topping
  8. Peel and chop the potatoes into large chunks before adding them to a pot of boiling water for 25 min. (if you want, you can cook them in the varoma at the same time as the base, just make sure you chop the pieces smaller - note: you will also get a little of the base flavouring your potatoes)

  9. Mash the potatoes with the butter and milk

  10. Assemble
  11. Pour the base into an oven dish, then carefully scoop little spoons of the mashed potato on top. (it's better a bit rough, not smooth)

  12. sprinkle the herbs and cheese over the top and bake in the oven at 180°c for around 20 min

Tip

Make without the milk, cheese, and butter for a dairy free/vegan alternative, just spray a little olive oil on the top of the potatoes before you put it in the oven, or use vegan substitues.


the darker colour and "meaty" texture and taste is achived via a combination of the red wine, Worcestershire sauce, "beef" stock, mushrooms and nuts. The nuts also help to thicken the base. If you find that the veggies you used have made the base a bit too runny, after you pour the base into the oven dish, just give the bowl a quick rinse and dry, then mill some more nuts - then stir them into the dish. You could also add some cornflour in step 4, but I have never found this necessary.


I have used green lentils instead of red, they taste good, but need alot longer to cook (around double the time)

    This recipe isn't vegetarian as it contains Worcestershire sauce which has anchovies in it. Maybe rename it or give an alternative for Worcestershire sauce.

    Yum! My husband had no idea it was vegetarian! 2 out of 3 kids ate it up too so I will be making it again. Although, the next day, it did taste much more “Vego” & we didn’t enjoy it as much (BUT I did use cabbage so I suspect it was that).

  • Great dish....

    Submitted by Keegle on 4. August 2017 - 06:23.

    Great dish.

    Being a traditional meat eater moving toward a more vegetable diet, the hardest thing is finding dishes that not only taste good but are also substantial. This is a fantastic dish to start with that ticks both boxes - and it's easy to make.

    This is now a regular on our table.

    Thanks for a great recipe.

    Submitted by ErinS0682 on 6. July 2017 - 14:02.

    This was delicious! I didn't add nuts, Worcestershire sauce or wine (would have been very runny with it) or pepper. I like a chunky filling so added extra peas and corn and diced up two carrots (cooked them in the microwave then added to the mixture). I also used green lentils as I didn't have red and cooked it for 30 minutes and it was perfect. This will be a regular to our vegetarian menu.

    I will be trying it without the Worcestershire Sauce though as this usually contains anchovies in it.

    Very nice, thanks for sharing. I made quite a few changes and it still tasted yummy - pumpkin & sweet potato instead of potato, no milk or butter, forgot the peas & corn, vegie stock paste instead of beef, no Worcestershire sauce, black pepper instead of white and 70g apple cider vinegar & 30g red wine vinegar instead of red wine. Looking forward to trying it again when I have all the correct ingredients.

  • This is my favourite

    Submitted by emmalmaynard on 8. September 2016 - 15:44.

    This is my favourite thermomix recipe. I know, it's a big call but this is seriously delicious and so nutritious.  I have made it several times, my meat eating husband, brother and nephew all love it.  I make this at least once a week.  It always amazes me just how much veggies go in to it.  I use sweet potato for the top and bake this in the oven before mashing it to put on top of the 'pie'. My husband adds extra cheese on to his serves.  These are our only deviations from the menu.  Great heated up the next day at work.

    Well Thank you! Yum.. I will be adding this to my easy go to list of recipes.. Loved how easy it was to make but so very tasty.. 

    I think next time, I will make the mash first in thermomix and then this.. 

    My 19 year old thinks he is very funny, he said 'Looks like something they'd serve in Orange is the New Black but surprisingly tasty' as he got his second serve.. I need to work on my plating skills!!!

  • We love this recipe, thanks.

    Submitted by Cozzy on 3. June 2016 - 23:12.

    We love this recipe, thanks. I didn't do it exactly the same, but it was basically the same method.

    Because we don't mind lots of veg, I added a lot more than 150g of extra veg and I found veg stock paste form the BCB was fine to use. No red wine as didn't have any, but I didn't need any extra liquid either.

    We had friends over and they were very impressed. Thanks again.

    Submitted by ScottTas on 25. April 2016 - 20:46.

    Very very nice. Will definitely make again.

    Fed it to my partner and asked him what he thought was in the 'meat' mixture.... "Mince and... " was the reply = win. Thank you! If you're used to a meaty Shepherds Pie you wouldn't think twice eating this if you didn't know. 

    I cooked the potatoes in the Varoma - chopped to potato salad sized pieces and didn't cook enough in the 25mins. Will just do on the stove next time.

    Note to me - Made most of it in an oval pie dish + 2 individual ramekins - worked well both ways. 

    Thanks for the recipe tmrc_emoticons.)
