Varoma Steamed Vegetables in Thermomix

November 8, 2023

Roasted | Mashed | Steamed

It’s common knowledge that my Thermomix is my go-to kitchen gadget. Ever since we acquired it, I haven’t touched our cooktop, except maybe when Noah was a boy – well since we bought a Thermomix. 🙂

When it comes to steaming my vegetables, the Thermomix is no exception. I always opt to pre-steam my roast vegetables, not only to achieve that extra crunch but also because it significantly speeds up the cooking process.

Below, you’ll find the details of my varoma steamed vegetables however if you want to incorporate a Roast, here is the recipe for our Thermomix Varoma Roast Chicken.

FOR ROASTING

  • Place all roasting vegetables onto baking tray
  • Lightly spray with olive oil and season with salt and pepper
  • Place in oven and bake for 20-30 minutes

FOR MASH POTATOES

  • I do not mash my potatoes in the Thermomix. I am SUPER FUSSY when it comes to them and I take it personally when they don't work out - HOWEVER in saying that some people like them.
  • For those that do like mash in the thermomix.
    Transfer the cooked potato to the TM bowl
    Insert butterfly whisk
    Remember - highest blade at the top (12 o'clock) and place butterfly whisk to the left of this (11 o'clock)
    ADD
    Vegetable stock concentrate, Butter, Milk (see notes)
    10 seconds | speed 4
    Serve immediately.

Notes

If you are mashing the potatoes, and you have made the Varoma Roast Chicken, use the stock from the chicken instead of milk - This is totally delicious!
