Frittatas in the Varoma
« on: April 11, 2009, 09:06:19 am »
Well, I have said a few times, in various places that you can make an omelette or a frittata in the Varoma tray. This post is to show that, not only can you do it, but it is very easy.

The original post with photos is here http://thermomix-er.blogspot.com/2009/04/frittata-in-varoma.html

Firstly, take a piece of silicon (baking) paper that will fit into the Varoma tray. Crumple it up and wet it, wring it out, then straighten it back out and place in the tray, which you have sitting in the Varoma base.

Add what ever vegetables, seafood, fish or meats that you wish

Blend up your eg mix in the Thermomix bowl and pour over the contents. This mix had 6 eggs and some milk.

Place 600 ml of water into the TM bowl and position the lid and Varoma. Cover the Varoma with the lid. Set the Thermomix for 15 minutes at Varoma temperature and speed 2.

Check after the 12 minutes has elapsed to see if the frittata has cooked sufficiently. It depends on what is mixed in with the frittata as to how long it may take - so no definite times.

When you have finished there is a moist, delicious frittata waiting to be devoured, and only the Thermomix to clean (which it does itself mostly !!!)

Members tips and ideas

Chelsea - Using the TMX bowl I chopped a handful of parsley quite fine, a spring onion and half a small capsicum semi-fine and then grated about 100g of tasty cheese.  I tipped those onto the wet paper in the tray with 2 sliced mushrooms and some chopped cheddar salami (a local salami - yummo).  I then whizzed up the egg and milk mixture (with some salt and cracked pepper) in the unwashed bowl and tipped it over the top.  Using boiling water in the bowl it took 15 minutes to steam.

Bron - I also use the wet crumpled paper whilst steaming fish above, cooking veg on lower level and soup in THX. It stops the flavours mixing

Wow! Thanks. I would never have thought to even give it a try. Males are very lateral thinkers.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

cookie - not my idea - saw it in the "Full Steam Ahead" cookbook (or PSanish equivalent)

Brazen - makes it easier to mould into the tray.

I made this tonight for a quick and easy dinner and we all enjoyed it.  I didn't think to use boiling water though (duh), so it took a bit longer to cook - about 25 minutes I think.  I used the TMX bowl to grate cheese, chop vegies and chop and saute onion and bacon before placing it all in the varoma tray.  I used 6 eggs and 200g milk.  Very nice and easy.

I am looking forward to trying a breakfast fritatta soon - bacon, mushrooms, tomato, cheese etc.  :)

Thanks Chelsea - it may well be that I used boiling water in the TM bowl - sorry.  I do that on occasions without even thinking  :-))

Just wanted to mention that I also use the wet crumpled paper whilst steaming fish above, cooking veg on lower level and soup in THX. It stops the flavours mixing! I assumed maybe you all do that? ??? ??? ???
