      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

    The Relish
  1. 1. Cut eggplant into 1 cm cubes, salt (about a good 2 tablespoons of Himalayan Salt) and leave for 15-30 minutes while you do the other prep.

    2. Remove seeds from capsicums and chop into 1 cm squares (or thin strips)

    3. Place garlic and onions into TM bowl, chop 5 secs, Speed 5

    Add 50g olive oil

    4. Saute 2 mins, 100 degrees, Speed 2, MC off

    5. Add tomatoes, chop 3 secs, Speed 4

    6. Once you have done this, rinse the eggplant in a colander throroughly.

    7. Tip into Thermomix with rest of ingredients - it will be full to the top - don't worry it will cook down.

    Optional – add pepper to taste (do not add much salt as eggplant has been salted)

    8. Cook 45 mins, 100 degrees, Speed 2 with the basket on top to prevent splashing and let the steam out.


  2. The Jars
  3. 1. Warm your jars - fill the sink with hot tap water and put them in to rinse and dry on teatowel.

    2. Fill the jars with hot relish using a jam funnel. Take my advice - i have had it all over my kitchen bench and floor - am going to buy one tomorrow! it is too chunky to use a normal funnel I use for lemon butter etc....

    3. Put the lid on and rinse in the sink of hot water and leave sitting in the hot water up to halfway, so it will stay hot and therefore vacuum seal each one.

    4. Cool and label!

    Great as gifts or for your pantry!

    This is a super easy and delicious recipe.  I am always wondering what to do with eggplant, but not anymore.  Have given jars to friends and family and they also love it.  I just added 4-5 tomatoes, and it worked well.

    I'd love to try this but can you please let us know how many tomatoes? They appear in the method but not in the ingredient list.
