- 1 Batch Crazy Good Bechamel Recipe
- 1 Kilo starchy potatoes, cubed 3cm diameter
- 500 Grams water for steaming
- 90 Grams Parmesan cubed
- 50 Grams Butter BUY
- 100 Grams cream
- 1 Pinch Pink Salt Flakes or to taste BUY
Premake the Crazy Good Bechamel Sauce in advance. It doesn't have to be cold.
Place the potatoes into the Varoma dish and water into the Thermomix bowl. Set Varoma into position/ Steam potatoes for 38 min/Varoma/speed 3. Make sure you can crush the cooked potatoes easily. Add time if necessary until they crumble on touching them. (If you watch the video you will see there is science behind the timing...but it can vary slightly based on the variety of potato used or size you cut them.)
Drain the Thermomix bowl and steam dry the potatoes over the hot empty bowl (see video).
Place the parmesan into the Thermomix bowl and mill 10 sec/speed 10. Remove from bowl and set aside.
Place cooked potatoes into the Thermomix bowl with the butter, and blend 20 sec/speed 6.
Add the cream, bechamel sauce, and milled cheese. Blend 15 sec/speed 6.
Taste and adjust seasoning to taste, even adding in pepper if that is your thing.
This will keep very well in the fridge for a week. Just reheat on demand. This is quite versatile, serve with anything saucy, meaty and delicious.
