  1. Heat the water in the bowl for 12 minutes / Temp. Varoma / Speed 1. (You only really need to heat the water for about 5 minutes)

  6. Chop the peeled garlic cloves 8 seconds / Speed 8. (4 seconds is sufficient)
  7. Add a little salt, a pinch of pepper, the saffron and the steamed potatoes.
  8. Blend until you have a thick purée.
  9. Add the egg and mix for a few seconds / Speed 5.
  10. Pour the oil onto the lid, little by little, keeping the Thermomix at Speed 4, until you have the desired texture.

Serving suggestions

You can use this to accompany any type of fish, especially those which are grilled, barbecued or steamed in the Varoma. At the same time, it goes well with red meat, meat fondues, as an aperitif, combined with other sauces.


You can give it a special touch by adding oregano and parsley. I sprinkled some smoked paprika over the top.
