      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 butterfly stirrer into  and add the water, quinoa, chia seeds, cumquats and for 1 minutes on speed 2


    let this stand for 10 minutes


    then cook for 15 minutes on 100 degrees C at  on speed 2


    The mixture will  thicken on standing and if it gets too think while cooking just add water to ensure it stirs. Quinoa cooked this way isn't as fluffy but is perfect for this dish and the cumquats provide a perfect match for my Aromatic Thai Herb Chicken dish.


    Happy dinning!






Great replacement for rice dishes. This will thicken up upon standing so add water as required and fluff up with a fork.
