A thermomix dinner

The other weekend, we had a few of my aunties visit. There was a desire from one of them to eat the TM Mushroom Risotto. She would be providing the mushrooms. It was muchly enjoyed by all.

It was not the only thing we made with the TM that night though. Things started in the afternoon. Mum brought her TM over as well, so we had two TMs going at once.

We started with Soy Milk. The aunties were impressed.

Then we experimented. The aunties had been to China and they had tried a Sweet Corn drink. The uncles were roped into de-husking the corn and cutting the kernels off the cobs.

We experimented with the following, based on the Soy Milk recipe

300g corn kernels
100g water

Blend at speed 10 for 1 minute
Cook at 100C for 6 minutes (speed 4)

We ended up adding another 200g water to make the drink less thick, and the aunties were very impressed that the resultant drink was smooth without needing to strain it.

We then proceeded to make Mushroom Risotto. Afterwards, we made the TM Lemon Custard. I made it to the recipe in the book, but it turned out excessively thick. I think I will put less cornflour next time. It was still very yummy.

All in all, a successful evening.
