      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


    Add pine nuts to Thermomix bowl and toast 5 min/varoma//speed 1. Set aside.


    Add half of the spinach to bowl. Chop roughly 3 sec/speed 5. Add remaining spinach and chop a further 3 sec/speed 5 (or until very fine). Add butter. Sauté 5 mins/100 degrees/speed 2


    Transfer spinach to your Thermoserver. 


    Without washing bowl, add onion and garlic and chop 4 sec/speed 6. Scrape down sides and repeat if necessary. Add a dash of extra virgin olive oil and sauté 5 min/varoma/speed 2 (MC removed).


    Insert butterfly.


    Add rice and cook 1 min/varoma/speed 2.


    Add water, stock paste and chicken. Place your simmering basket on top of the lid, so steam can escape and to avoid splattering.


    Cook, 20 mins/105 degrees//speed 1.


    At the end of cooking time, transfer to Thermoserver and mix through spinach. Allow to rest 10-15 minutes. Serve with pine nuts and crumbled feta, salt and pepper.

    Thanks for your comments! This was my very first conversion. And it appears I accidentally put in 3-4 tablespoons instead of teaspoons! I've adjusted it down to 2 tablespoons, which is in line with most Thermomix risotto recipes. 

    Eat well. Be happy.

    Whole family enjoyed this dish - thank you. We toasted the pine nuts in a fry pan as I don't get the same crunchy texture in the Varoma. Thank you tmrc_emoticons.-)

  • I have never liked risotto,

    Submitted by kemmec on 30. December 2015 - 20:35.

    I have never liked risotto, so was a bit nervous about making this. Also I have only had my Thermie for 5 days, so double nervous!

    It was fantastic!

    Both my housemates had second serves, and there is enough for both of their lunches tomorrow. Things I noticed:

    1) you cannot mine 400g of fresh spinach leaves in one hit (took me three)

    2) Pinenuts are still raw after 5min on veroma - will try longer next time.

    3) The standard vege stock I made when my machine arrived, is far too salty for my taste.

    4) Using chicken fillets was a good idea, quality meat for a quality result.
