Basic recipe from the EDC cookbook

Someone had mentioned to me once that they didn’t like cooking white rice in the Thermomix as the result wasn’t as good as using a rice cooker. I disagree, i have no issues with my rice every time I make it in the Thermomix, especially when I’m using the Varoma dish to steam another dish (woohoo less washing up!).

The recipe below is based on 400g of rice which should feed four regular people or three hungry people. I have reduced the quantity of rice to 300g in the past and used the same settings without any issues too.


– Add 400g of rice to your TMX basket.
– Rinse under running water, then insert into your TMX bowl.
– Cover rice with water.


– Cook for 16 mins/100 degrees/speed 4.
– Voila rice!

Berry muffins version 2

(Recipe adapted from this blogpost)

I have had a crazy year so far at work and my weekends have generally been spent passed out on the couch. But hopefully I will be able to jump back on the bandwagon! I have just trimmed my jungle of a herb garden down this morning to make a marinade which I will post up soon. In the meantime, here is another berry muffin recipe, which I think trumps my first attempt..


50-100 grams of sugar depending on what you are adding to your muffins. Because I had berries I added about 90 grams to balance the tartness of the fruit
1 egg
50 grams butter
110 grams wholemeal flour
110 grams white flour
1 tsp baking powder
190 grams milk
fruit/spices/vanilla to suit – I had 1.5 cups of frozen berries


– Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celcius and grease/line your muffin pan.
– Add sugar, egg and butter into your TMX bowl. Mix for 15 secs/speed 5.
– Add flour, baking powder and milk, and mix for a further 15-20 secs/speed 5.
– Add fruit and mix for 20 secs/reverse/speed 1.


– Spoon the mix into your muffin pan, whack in the oven for about 20 mins, and enjoy.
