    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

    PLEASE READ THE WHOLE RECIPE (INCLUDING NOTES AND TIPS) BEFORE STARTING :)
  1. NO BUTTERFLY OR STEAMER BASKET IS REQUIRED.

     Place chopped potatoes straight into bowl with milk.

     

  2. Cook for 15 minutes, 100 degrees, speed 1.  By this time the potatoes will be soft and mushy.  If they are not cooked enough you will end up with a lumpy mash.  CHECK THE POTATOES ARE COOKED THOROUGHLY AT THIS POINT.  If chopped too big, or not cooked enough, add a bit more cooking time.

     

  3. Add butter and salt and mash for 20-30 seconds MAXIMUM, (meaning, do not mash for longer than 30 seconds), speed 3 until desired consistency is achieved.  DO NOT OVERWHIP as you will end up with a claggy consistency.

     

    NOTE the "mashing time" will depend on the size you dice your potatoes and how well cooked/mushy they are.  I start with 20 seconds, check the consistency, and if still lumpy continue to 30 seconds.

Tip

This is a half quantity for 2-3 people.  If you want a larger portion then double it to use 1000g potatoes and 250g milk, and cook for 20-25 minutes.

I use this method with all types of potatoes and have never failed. 

For a creamier, more indulgent mash, use half cream, half milk, or all cream instead of milk.

Parmesan cheese and fresh chives can be added for extra flavour.

  • I made this today to go with the Shepherd's Pie...

    Submitted by kate.lanham on 22. October 2017 - 19:12.

    I made this today to go with the Shepherd's Pie recipe and doubled it as specified. 1kg potatoes, 250g milk and cooked for 25mins. Then I mashed for 30secs on speed 3 (as specified), checked it to find that the butter and salt & pepper I'd added hadn't mixed in at all!! I had to mix for an extra 30secs on speed 5 to actually get the mixture to mix! They turned out fine but I did have to play it by ear. Can you please update the instructions for doubling the recipe so we know how long to mash for and on what speed? Also how much salt for 1kg potatoes? I literally have no idea about saltiness and am prone to over-salting, so a general guide would be awesome!! It is a good recipe though and handy to not need a butterfly or basket. Thank you tmrc_emoticons.)

    I tried this mash as my 2nd Day recipe since getting my Thermie ! It was a smashing hit! it is such an easy recipe, no utensils required! My husband said that it was the "best mash potato" he has had for a while. The onctuosity was soooooo good! I added a dash of cream & 25grms of parmesan. Thank you for creating it .
