Dairy free thermisotto.

I love a good thermisotto. Honestly it is hands down my absolute favourite dish to create with my Thermomix. Its a bit of a wow dish and its also fast and low maintenance to cook. (Mummy approved!)

If I have paremesan cheese in the fridge I use it but if not I love it just as much without. If you have the TM5 and basic cookbook recipe chip then you can just cook this guided style, adding garlic and onion to the salt cooking step. If not I’ve got my slightly different steps below which you can use manually. Sprinkle on a little porcini mushroom salt (I made the recipe from the festive flavours cookbook) to serve and enjoy with a good glass of wine and some wonderful company or while watching Charlie and Lola with your tired little people 😉
