    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

  1. Place onion into TM bowl and chop 4 sec on SP6. Scrap down the sides of bowl with the spatula. Add oil and saute for 3 mins on Varoma, REVERSE & Slow Speed.

    If you have pre-made Fried Onion Ginger Garlic Mix (OGG Mix), you can skip this step and just add 1.5 tbsp of OGG Mix to next.
  2. Add oil, carrots, cabbage & carrots, Tom Yum paste, dark soy, soy sauce, sugar, pepper and hot water and cook for 4 mins on Varoma, REVERSE & Slow Speed. Meanwhile, rinse the rice vermicelli through the varoma dish & set aside. Do not soak.
  3. Add the rice vermicelli immediately & cook for 4 mins on Varoma, REVERSE & Slow Speed.
  4. Use spatula to stir in the capsicum and cook for a further 2 mins, Varoma, REVERSE & Slow Speed.
  5. Once ready, pour into a Thermoserver (to keep warm) and garnish with sliced shallots & egg omelette and serve it hot with chilli sauce.

Accessories you need



The vegetable & stock must be at Varoma temperature when you put in the rice vermicelli to make sure that the noodles can cook properly.

If you can't avoid the "slightly browned bottom" - this can be easily cleaned by soaking in soapy way for 30 minues before attempting to clean it.

    Really yummy. I made a couple of changes. I used a pinch of white pepper, a teaspoon of oyster sauce and 2 tablespoons of regular soy sauce. Next time I will reduce the tom yum paste as the kids found it too spicy. Very authentic flavours. Thanks for sharing. ..........just made again. Half a tablespoon of the tom yum paste was perfect for us!
