    Hi,

    I tried to make the carbonara and I am only new with the Thermomix and just had a question. I followed the instructions but the bacon didn’t come out in pieces it went puréed and the chicken ended up looking like tuna or shredded chicken.

    Do you what it could have been or is this normal? I even had it in reverse.

    Thanks
    Rachel

      Hi Rachel, welcome to the Thermi family… Unfortunately many times it is the quality of the chicken… all supermarket chicken is pumped with water to add weight… That aside, try cutting your pieces a bit bigger 🙂 the bacon is fine as it adds flavour with out bits, but if you want chunks of chicken cut them larger or use thighs 🙂 they seem to hold together better! 🙂 I hope that has been helpful! This for stopping by! Liz xxx

    I have already a long list of recipes to try from this site – so good! A question. I would love to give this a try but wondering if there is any problem with residue on the bottom of the bowl. With creamy dishes in thermomix in the past I have found it really hard to get off. Thanks!

      Hi Laurie… thanks so much 🙂 I find that it does happen sometimes, but you don’t need to work, just take the blade out and clean it with a steelo… it is stainless steel and I do it all the time 🙂 Liz x

    I made this in my tm5 last night and left out the chicken (using only bacon). Really tasty and delicious, whole family loved it! I just have a question about step 2 when sautéing the onion and bacon in oil, should it be speed 4? It seemed rather fast so I stopped it after a few seconds and the bacon and onion mixture was mush after this short time. So I slowed it right down to spoon speed. Didn’t affect the taste, was still amazing in flavour but wondered if it is a misprint?

      Hi Tanya, 🙂 yes speed 4 is correct 🙂 If you put it on REVERSE it should be fine, the smaller, when it is smaller the flavour is stronger as it only cooks in a short period of time, but obviously if you want bigger chucks please feel free to adjust the recipe 🙂 Thanks so much for dropping in and letting me know that like one of my recipes… Makes my day 🙂 Liz xx

        Thanks Liz, that makes sense because the flavour was good and strong, with so little ingredients. It really was so good! Definitely going to make it again, and next time I’ll use chicken too

    Perfect example of what’s old is new food trend wise. I love creamy pastas (you can totes tell from my butt), thinking I’ll make this bad boy for dinner.

    Just discovered your website – loving the recipes and made this one tonight as needed something that only used things I had in the fridge / freezer and this fitted the bill perfectly. Spring rolls and massaman curry paste are next…

    I do love a creamy pasta. I find them very comforting. I made a boscaiola last night with spaghetti buy my other favourite is carbonara. I haven’t tried it with chicken and usually make it with eggs with just a dash of cream xx
