Brown 'Fried' Rice in the Thermomix

This healthy, vegan dinner is delicious! Of course, if you have a meat eater to please I have added the steps to help you out*! Packed with vegetables and steamed instead of fried, you will find this is a light and tasty dish. 

Serves 2-4


100g long grain brown rice
200g coconut milk
400g water

Use whatever veggies you'd like, but here is a list of my favourites!

1 carrot, sliced into halved medallions
2 spring/green onions, diced
4 mushrooms, sliced
1/4 yellow capsicum/pepper, diced
1/4 green capsicum/pepper, diced
Sliced chili to taste
1 TM measuring cup frozen peas & corn
*1 chicken breast or 2 short bacon pieces, diced if there is a meat-eater

Dash of soy sauce
Dash of sesame oil
Salt & Pepper to taste


Place TM basket into TM bowl. Add rice. Remove. Add coconut milk and water. Rinse rice and put basket back into bowl. Place Varoma on top (it's empty at this point). Cook 35-40 minutes, Varoma, speed 4.

While rice is cooking, prepare your veg. They don't need to be cooked until the last 15-20 minutes so don't rush!

Add all veg at 20 minutes remaining, into the Varoma. *If cooking meat, use the top tray, lined with dampened baking paper to cook chicken or bacon. 

Lift out TM basket. Discard remaining liquid. Tip rice into TM bowl. Add veggies into TM bowl. Add oil. Cook 30 seconds, 100, REVERSE, soft speed. 

Add soy sauce, salt and pepper. Stir 30 seconds, REVERSE, soft speed. 

Serve. (Add meat and give another stir once the vego's portion is out if you'd like!)

Happy Thermomixing!

TIP: Always keep an eye on the water level when cooking rice. If you can't see it swishing around on your rice you must add more.
