      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

    Mushroom Cappuccino with Flavoured Oil
  1. Place a heatproof bowl on the lid of Thermomix and weigh in boiling water. Add dried porcini mushrooms and set aside for at least 30 minutes making sure all mushrooms are submerged.

    Add onion, garlic, thyme, 50g of butter and oil to TM bowl and chop on speed 5 for 5 seconds. Scrape down with the spatula and repeat chopping. Sautee for 6 minutes on Varoma temperature - Speed 0.5.

    Add remaining 100g butter and swiss brown mushrooms to TM bowl and chop for 3 seconds on speed 5. Chop for longer if needed until all mushrooms are chopped evenly. Cook for 10 minutes on 100 degrees - speed 0.5. The mushrooms should start to release water and become soft.

    Add reconstituted porcini mushrooms plus the water they were soaking in to the TM bowl. Add water and veg stock paste. Cook for 15-20 minutes on 100 degrees speed 0.5 until all mushrooms are soft.

    In the meantime make the flavoured oil by adding EVOO, truffle oil, lemon & orange zest to a small bowl. Mix with a pinch of salt and allow to rest so flavours permeate the oil.

    Once mushrooms are cooked add cream, salt and pepper to taste to the TM bowl and cook for a final 2 minutes on 100 degrees speed 0.5.

    Add a splash more water only if the soup has reduced too much and is too thick making sure not to exceed the maximum level. Then blend on speed 9 for at least 1 minute bringing the speed up slowly. Check seasoning and adjust to taste.

    Serve immediately and finish with a sprinkle of flavoured oil on top. You can add a few more thyme leaves for garnish and added flavour.

    This dish can be served as a hearty winter meal, an entree or even a warm canape served in shot glasses.

Dried porcini mushrooms can be found at good supermarkets and delis. Shop around as they can be costly but a little bit goes a long way. Aldi has proved to be a good place to buy porcini's when they are in stock. You could substitute with dried shitake mushrooms but the flavour won't be as pungent. Dried mushrooms are shelf stable in your pantry if dry and sealed well.
