      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).

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

    Salmon and pea spaghetti with pumpkin cream
  1. Insert simmering basket. Heat 1000g water 15 minutes/100 degrees/speed 2. Meanwhile, peel and chop pumpkin and weigh through the hole in the lid, as water is heating.
  2. Place salmon fillets onto Varoma tray and season well with salt and pepper.
    Peel onion, and cut in half.
    Cut lemon in half.
    Chop parsley for garnish.
  3. After 15 minutes has ended, check the pumpkin is cooked through. If not, add a few more minutes. Remove simmering basket and set pumpkin aside.
  4. Through the hole in the lid, add 300g of spaghetti to the bowl (leave hot water in there) and begin cooking 10 minutes/Counter-clockwise operation/Varoma/speed 1. The spaghetti will poke out through the hole, and spin gently until it starts to soften.
    Once spaghetti has dropped down enough, place Varoma with salmon into position for remainder of the 10 minutes.
  5. After the 10 minutes, remove Varoma tray and weigh 150g peas into the Varoma dish. Return tray with salmon, then cook a further 3 minutes/Counter-clockwise operation/Varoma/speed 1.
  6. Once cooked, transfer peas and salmon to a large bowl or ThermoServer (remove skin, if fillets weren't skinless). Use Varoma dish to strain spaghetti, then transfer spaghetti into ThermoServer with salmon and peas.
  7. Place onion into mixing bowl and chop 3 seconds/speed 5. Add 20g olive oil and sautee 3 min/120 degrees/speed 2.
  8. Add cooked pumpkin to mixing bowl, along with 1 tbsp vegetable stock paste, 200g cream and the juice of half the lemon. Blend 30 seconds/speed 9.
    Then, reheat sauce 1 minute/90 degrees/speed 2.
  9. Pour pumpkin cream sauce over spaghetti and toss to combine. Serve with a sprinkle of parsley and salt and pepper to taste.

    Some grated pecorino or parmesan cheese would also work well.

    Tried this for dinner as we happened to have all the ingredients. Recipe was a bit fiddly however we just followed the steps (although halved the quantities) and it turned out to be a very nice and tasty meal for two. Thank you for the recipe.
