      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. 1. Put the lentils into the TM bowl and mill for 10 seconds, speed 8.5. Set aside. No need to wash the bowl for the next step.

    2. Put the onions, garlic and coriander into the TM bowl and chop 10 seconds, speed 5. Scrape down the sides of the TM bowl with the spatula and repeat the process if finer chopping is needed.

    4. Add the milled lentils, the vegetable stock paste, salt, pepper and water and cook 35 minutes, 100 degrees, Counter-clockwise operation speed 1.

    5. Extend cooking for another 5 minutes if necessary - make sure that the soup does not dry out.

    6. Tip immediately into a Thermoserver.

    7. Can be served either with plain steamed rice or with bread or croutons OR just eaten by itself.


Accessories you need



I did not put any olive oil into the bowl during the sauteeing process for the bacon because it has its own fat which renders.

If you do require to add olive oil, then add just one teaspoon.
