    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. Cut potatoes into small pieces (Quarters or Sixths depending on the size of your potato) & place in the simmering basket

    Cut Pumpkin into small pieces (around the size of a 50c piece) & place in the varoma dish.

    Fill the varoma with other vegetables of your choice.

    Place around 1L of water into the TM Bowl & place the simmering basket into the bowl.

    Place lid & varoma into position.

    Cook veggies for 30 mins, varoma temp, speed 3. Time may vary depending on the size you cut your veg. 

    Once cooked, remove varoma and set aside.

    Remove Simmering Basket with spatula.

    Discard water out of TM Bowl.

    Transfer the cooked potato to the TM Bowl.

    Chop for 5 seconds, speed 3.

    Make a 'well' and insert butterfly.

    Add Milk & Butter (quantities will vary depending on quantity of potato).

    Mash for 5 sec, speed 3 & check.

    Repeat until desired consistency is achieved.

    You may need to add more milk or butter (or both) depending on the consistency you require.

    OMG! So Sorry! I only just seen your comment! I just mean your standard un-washed/brushed/dirty potatoes. Not the washed/clean ones like the cream delight etc. And yes I peel them.
