Have you tried making a steamed omelet in Thermomix? First, layer the Varoma tray with parchment paper. Trace around the Varoma tray and then cut out the parchment paper. Crumpling the paper under running water makes it easier to adhere to the Varoma tray so that it fits well, leaving the vents on the sides open for steam to circulate. This method is described in the recipe for the Three Egg French Omelet, which can be adapted to your family’s preference.
