      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. Place onion or shallots in the TM bowl and chop 2 seconds at speed 6.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula and chop 1 more second at speed 6.

  2. Add olive oil to the onion and saute for 10 minutes at 98 degrees,  speed 1.

  3. Add the white wine vinegar and saute as described above for a further 2 minutes.  Set sauteed onion aside.

  4. Place garlic and mint into the TM bowl and blend 10 seconds at speed 6.

  5. Add the defrosted peas, sauteed onion, 1 egg, half a teaspoon of salt and a grinding of black pepper.  Turbo 2 times 1 second or until the peas are broken up without being turned into a mushy paste.

  6. Line a tray that will fit your freezer with baking paper, and shape the pea mixture into 16 patties, about 7 cm across ad 2 cm thick.  Freeze for a couple of hours until firm.

  7. Place the remaining 3 eggs in a cowl and beat gently.  Place the flour in a separate bowl and the breadcrumbs in a third.  Remove the croquettes from the freezer and, one at a time, roll them in the flour, dip them in the egg, then coat them in the breadcrumbs.

  8. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and place an oven tray in the oven.

  9. Fill a medium frying pan with enough oil so that it comes about 2.5cm up the sides.  Place it on medium-high heat and leave for 5 minutes or until the oil is hot.

  10. Fry the croquettes in batches, turning once, so that both sides are golden brown.  Transfer to the oven tray to ensure that the croquettes are warmed through.
