TM 5Please 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!
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.
Add garlic and chop 2 sec / speed 8
Add remaining veg and chop 5 sec / speed 6 (check the bowl, scrape and add another second or 2 if required)
Add all remaining ingredients except frozen peas and corn
cook 25min / 100°c / speed 2.5
add the frozen veg and give it a quick stir through with the spatula.
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)
Mash the potatoes with the butter and milk
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)
sprinkle the herbs and cheese over the top and bake in the oven at 180°c for around 20 min
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)
