Creamy Garlic Prawn Risotto | Thermomix recipe

I know this certainly isn't the only garlic prawn risotto recipe on the block, but when I went searching for a recipe to try I couldn't find one just right, so I thought I'd make my own up and see how it turned out. 

See my tips below for how to use the The Basic Cookbook's guided recipe on the in-built recipe chip.

Creamy Garlic Prawn Risotto            

by Nat's Thermomixen in the Kitchen


2-3 garlic cloves
handful of flat leaf parsley (leaves only)
40g butter
40g olive oil
2 Tb TM veggie stock concentrate
320g arborio rice
720g water
60g wine
300-400g fresh raw peeled prawns (I prefer tails off, up to you!)
2 Tb creme fraiche
40g parmesan (optional)
juice of 1/2 lemon


If using, grate parmesan on speed 10 for 3 seconds, set aside, rinse bowl

Add garlic & parsley, speed 6 for 3 seconds. Scrape down

Add butter and oil, cook 3 minutes, 120c (varoma if using TM31), speed 1

Insert butterfly whisk

Add rice, cook 1 minute, 120c, reverse, speed 1.5 (put dial in between 1-2 on TM31)

Add wine, cook 2 minutes, 120c, reverse, speed 1.5 

Add water and stock and cook for 13 minutes, 100c, reverse speed 1.5

Add prawns, creme fraiche and lemon juice. Cook for 3 minutes, reverse, speed 1.5

Transfer risotto to Thermoserver, top with parmesan and allow to rest for 10 minutes. 


If using Thermomix Model 5, you can loosely follow the built in recipe for mushroom risotto. Just leave the prawns out entirely until the end of the recipe as they only need 3 minutes. At end of the final 13 minute cooking time press the back button, add the prawns, creme fraiche and lemon juice and then drop the timer down to 3 minutes and cook again.
Best served immediately
Serve with a teaspoon of creme fraiche on top and garnish with additional parsley
