Steamed fish, coconut rice and bok choy
Serves 4

This recipe is for Thermomix owners – it’s a great all in one meal. The rice cooks in the mixing bowl while the fish steams above. It’s such a light and healthy dish, and also so very pretty. It makes both a perfect weeknight and dinner party meal. The precise cooking times can vary depending on the thickness of your fish fillets, so keep an eye on your Varoma as it cooks.


  • 300 g basmati rice
  • 500 g water
  • 400 ml tin coconut milk
  • 5 g fresh turmeric, sliced
  • 4 × 180 g boneless white fish fillets
  • 1–2 small bunches bok choy, halved lengthways
  • 1 spring onion, ends trimmed, shredded, to serve
  • micro tatsoi leaves, to serve
  • soy sauce or tamari, to serve (choose a gluten-free brand if needed)
  • sesame oil, to serve

  1. Place the rice into the simmering basket. Place the water, coconut milk and turmeric into the mixing bowl. Line the Varoma tray with baking paper and place the fish fillets onto the tray.
