    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

    Spanakorizo - Lemon flavoured spinach or silverbeet risotto
  1. Method

  2. 1. Place brown onion into mixing bowl and chop 3 sec/speed 5. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula.


    2. Add butter and extra virgin olive oil and sauté 3 min/120degC/speed 1.


    3. Insert butterfly whisk. Add risotto rice and saute 1 min/120deg C/Counter-clockwise operation/speed 1.5, without measuring cup.


    4. Add white wine and sauté 2 min/Varoma/Counter-clockwise operation/speed 1.5, without measuring cup. Scrape bottom of mixing bowl well with spatula to loosen rice.


    5. Add stock, silverbeet, dried green dill, lemon juice and water To bowl. Cook 15 min/100 deg C/Counter-clockwise operation/speed 1.5, placing simmering basket instead of measuring cup onto mixing bowl lid. Try a couple of rice grains to see that it has cooked to your liking. If not continue cooking for a couple of minutes more.


    6. Transfer into ThermoServer and serve immediately.

  3. Tips
  4. * You can use both the stems and leaves of the Silverbeet. Slice the stems (white part) to the width of your finger. Slice the leaves (green part) down the centre length wise and then slice to the width of your finger. This will prevent long stringy bits of Silverbeet that may entangle around the butterfly whisk.


    * Don't worry about the amount of Silverbeet in the bowl as it will wilt and drop below the max line in the bowl. Use max 600g.


    * Feel free to adjust lemon and dill quantity according to your taste.
