Thermomix Mashed Potato

I love visiting my dentist, we have the best conversations, which helps to take my mind off what he’s doing.  I’ve never feared the dentist, I’ve been seeing him since I was 18 and my kids see him every 6 months without any worry too.  My dentist and I watch the same TV shows so we chat about the shows we’ve been watching, debrief on the story lines and share new shows we’ve found. But recently he mentioned he had a thermomix, and told me all about the meals he cooks in it, he’s a real fan.  Then he raved about how much he loved mashed potato in the thermomix, I disagreed with him, I have tried it and it turned out like glue, we really didn’t enjoy it.  He insisted I try again, so I did, I’ve altered the original recipe I was using, I’ve converted it’s so easy to make. All the family love it, my son enjoys the flavour of the vegetable stock. The thermomix mash has a velvety, smooth and creamy texture compared to the mash I cook over the stove top which is much thicker.

This thermomix mashed potato is easy to prepare and very tasty, the whole family will enjoy it!

so glad to hear Sharon, I find it so much easier not having to wait for water to boil and no mashing required, leave it all up to the machine!!

I “sold” the thermomix to my husband solely on the restaurant quality mashed potato! We follow the Everyday Cookbook recipe and it’s mighty fine, but I’ve found that the perfect mash depends largely on the potatoes you use. Choose the wrong spuds and you’re mash will be either gluey or runny, but choose the perfect potatoes and you’ll have perfect mash every time. That said, I love the idea of adding the veggie stock, will definitely try that next time!

Maybe it was the spud I was using Sammie, as it was the ED recipe I followed in the beginning and wasn’t a fan.

It really does depend on the spud, I have both machines and follow the old recipe, I am not a big fan of the TM5 chip recipe.
I do 500g of potato, 100 water and 50g of milk sprinkle salt, cook for 25mins of spd 2 once done, add in whisk and butter and whip for 30 – 40 secs. If you need a larger portion do 1kg of potato to 250g of liquid.

My mashed potato turn gooey… I’ve followed the recipe as it is. I think it would be great the potato was given exact measurement as to how much potato needed rather than just 4 large ones.

I don’t have the vegetable stock concentrate so could I add a vegetable stock cube? Would I have to dissolve it first and then how much to add? Thanks for your help in advance!

Yeah thats fine. Just dissolve them first according to the directions on the packet of the stock cube to make up the same amount needed

I also have found my potatoes gluey when cooking in Thermie. Thought I would try this one..didnt have any veg stock, but it turned out pretty good. What i did differently this time was just whizzed few seconds at time till seemed right consistency. Think that is part of answer to un-glooey spuds.

Love this, top tip if you are cutting down, swap butter for a whole raw egg, tastes the same for less calories

Thanks for this recipe it was perfect! Made it last night, substituted the milk and butter for rice milk and nuttelex (I’m vegan but my family aren’t and my sons couldn’t tell the difference ? which is a first)! I cooked for 25 mins and mixed for only 5 seconds instead of 10 as I was scared it’d go gluggy, and at the same time I steamed 2 levels of veggies in the varoma, amazing!!
