One-Bowl Mushroom Spaghetti

Serves 4


  • 5g dried porcini mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 brown onion, peeled and halved
  • 40g olive oil
  • 250g mixed mushrooms, sliced
  • 200g cream
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons stock concentrate
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 600g water
  • 400g spaghetti
  • 50g rocket, to serve
  • Fresh parsley, to serve


Place porcini mushrooms in TC bowl, mill 10 seconds, speed 9.

Add garlic and onion, chop 5 seconds, speed 5. Scrape down sides.

Add oil, cook 5 minutes, 100°C, speed 1.

Add mushrooms, cream, stock concentrate, mustard, salt and water, cook for 8 minutes, 100°C, reverse speed 1.

Remove MC and add spaghetti through hole in lid. Cook for 4 minutes, 100°C, reverse speed soft.

Gently stir spaghetti, folding the top spaghetti to the bottom. Replace lid and leave standing for 10 minutes in the TC bowl to complete cooking.

Serve topped with rocket and parsley leaves.


NOTE: The timing of this recipe must be precise for the pasta to be cooked al dente, so don’t venture too far from your thermo cooker!
