      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!

Follow recipe by Amie Cardona on recipe Community to make the Soft Cheese (Gbejniet). https://www.recipecommunity.com.au/starters-recipes/soft-cheese/yb5dwqjs-c9b6f-647538-beea0-ewkt6nwy

I do not add the soft cheese (Gbejniet) to the soup bowl as they may break. The cheese will warm up with the heat of the soup.

If there is any left over soup it will thicken. When reheating add a little extra water to loosen.
