Madame Thermomix has been getting very steamy very often lately. Don’t worry – this is simply because Thermomix makes it so fast and easy to eat healthy steamed food!
One of my favourite things to steam in the Thermomix is rice. It’s so very simple even a man can make it come out right every time Just weigh the rice into Thermomix’s internal steamer basket, give it a quick wash and wet, and then “Bob’s your uncle” which means voilà ! Perfectly steamed rice in 20 minutes with no effort, while you do something else. You can make as little as a single serving of rice, or up to 400 g uncooked rice – that’s nearly a pound – yielding up to eight servings. Once again, Thermomix does the job for small or large numbers!

- Weigh or add water to Thermomix bowl. Insert internal steamer basket and weigh in rice. Top with salt. Wash and wet rice 5 seconds/Speed 5. This is a very important step without which you’ll end up with a brick of hard, uncooked rice
- Steam your white rice 20 minutes/Varoma setting/Speed 2 ½ (or for other types of rice use the above timings), making sure your Measuring Cup sits on the TM lid with open end up. As explained in one of my Thermomix Tips and Tricks, turn the speed UP to Speed 4 if your liquid bubbles onto the lid.
- Use the handy hook on your Thermomix spatula to carefully remove the internal steamer basket and enjoy perfectly steamed rice.
Bon appétit !
