Recipe's preparation

    Rice Mixture
  1. - Weigh out the rice in the simmering basket.
    - Wash the rice until the water runs clear - keep to the side.
    - Add the herbs to the mixing bowl and chop 7 seconds speed 7, scrape down the mixing bowl and repeat. Keep herbs to the side.
    - Add brown onions and chop 7 seconds speed 7. Scrape down and repeat if necessary.
    - Add olive oil, without measuring cup saute 4min, Varoma temp soft speed.

    - Insert the butterfly.
    - Add reserved rice, herbs, stock paste, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
    - Cook 5 mins, varoma, reverse speed 1.5.
    - Allow to cool.
  2. - Rinse and drain the vine leaves.
    - With the smooth side down, put a teaspoon of the rice mixture at the bottom of the leaf, fold the two sides in toward the mixture and roll tightly.
    - Arrange the rolls in the varoma dish with the flap of the vine leaf underneath. Place them in reasonably snuggly but leave some of the holes in the varoma dish uncovered to allow steam to circulate.

    Add 700ml of warm water to the mixing bowl and cook on varoma temp, speed 2 for 40mins. You may need to adjust the cooking time depending on how many you are making.



These go beautifully with a tzatziki dip!

    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
    For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.
    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!
