Thermomix Model

    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
    For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.
    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!

Capsicum and sun-dried tomato dip



  • 31. August 2022 - 23:11

    I just made this but used lemon juice instead of vinegar, a bit more olive oil and philadelphia cream cheese. I had also roasted the capsicum. In addition, I used three garlic cloves instead of one. While it turned out really nice, my husband and I both agreed it's better suited served as a pasta sauce. Maybe with linguini. I still will serve this tonight as a dip, but in the future, will use as a pasta sauce.

    This is a great recipe, we use it for Pasta Sauce, Pizza Sauce and serve as a dip. So easy to make great to have in the fridge for that quick and easy dish.

    This is simple, easy to make & always gets devoured.
    I add a little extra garlic evoo & use it as a sauce base on home made pizzas.
    I recently added it to chicken mince with some Thai spices for some amazingly tasty meatballs.
    10/10 from me.
