      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Place parmesan into TM Bowl and grate 5sec/Speed9 set aside.

    2. Place onion and garlic into TM Bowl, chop 3sec/Speed5. Scrape down sides of bowl.

    3. Add olive oil and butter and saute 3min/100deg/Speed1.

    4. Insert butterfly whisk. Add Rice and 50g of the water, saute 2min/100deg/Counter-clockwise operation/Speed1.

    Add stock paste and remaining water. Give it a good stir at this point to make sure all the rice is loose and none stuck to the bottom.

    6. Cook 7min/100deg/Counter-clockwise operation/Gentle stir setting. While cooking, add the chicken slowly through the lid so the pieces don't clump together.

    7. Add zucchini, asparagus and mushrooms and cook for a further 10 min/100deg/Counter-clockwise operation/Gentle stir setting.

    8. Place spinach in thermoserver. Pour over Risotto, sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese, stir gently to combine. Allow to rest and thicken for up to 10 minutes.
