      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 corriander into TM bowl and chop 1 sec speed 5. Remove from bowl & set aside for later.

    Add, onion, chilli, garlic & spring onions to the TM bowl & chop for 4 secs speed 5. Add the prawns & the butter & cook for 5 mins Varoma speed 1 Counter-clockwise operation.

    Remove the prawns from the TM bowl & keep them warm in a Thermoserver leaving  as much of the chilli, garlic & onion as you can in the TM bowl.

    Place the pumpkin into the TM bowl & chop for 10 secs speed 7. Cover with water being careful not to go over the maximum line in your bowl. Add the stock paste and cook for 20 mins 100 degrees speed 1.

    (You can add your cooked prawns before pureeing the soup or leave half out of the soup to serve on top - or serve all the prawns on top of the soup if you wish.)

    Serve with reserved prawns on top & or fresh corriander & extra fresh chilli slices if you wish.
