      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

  1. Place carrot into mixing bowl and chop 3 seconds/speed 5

    Transfer into a bowl and set aside.

    Place onion chopped into quarters into mixing bowl and chop 3 seconds/speed 5.

    Add margarine and extra virgin olive oil and saute 3 /minutes/temperature 120c/speed 1

    Insert butterfly whisk and add Arborio Rice and saute 1 minute/temperature 120c/Reverse speed 1.5 without measuring cup

    Add 60 grams of the water and saute 2 minutes/Varoma/ reverse speed 1.5 without measuring cup. Scrape bottom of mixing bowl to loosen rice

    Add Gravox powder, Salt, carrot, peas, corn kernels and the rest of the water and mix around with spatula. Place the simmering basket on the mixing bowl lid instead of measuring cup.

    Cook 13 minutes/temperature 100c/reverse speed 1.5.

    Transfer into Thermoserver using spatula and combine the parmesan cheese, then serve.


    My kids hate mushrooms or anything different so wanted to make something they would eat. They both had two bowls each and loved it. You could add wine instead of the first 60 grams of water and stock paste instead of the Gravox but my kids don't like the taste of those.

    I didn't want to rate this low stars just because we didn't personally like this in regards to flavour so I didn't rate.  It was however, easy to make I could definitely see it being great for those fussy eaters!  I also used the thermomix vegetable paste instead of the gravox powder. 

    Thank you for the recipe  tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Love this recipe. I made it

    Love this recipe.

    I made it using TMX chicken stock instead of gravox ... We all loved it.

    I pan fried a few garlic prawns to pop on top to jazz it up a bit. Yummo!

    Thank you so much for sharing.

    Thanks so much for this recipe.  My kids loved it! They are both low-volume eaters, and getting food into them is a pain, but they both ate two tablespoons each! A miracle in this house.  tmrc_emoticons.D  

    (I used the TM veggie stock mix)
