Since becoming an owner of the Thermomix I have been trying to find new ways of eating healthier as it seems to be so much easier with me good mate Thermie. Less chopping and less work and no wasting anymore of my time. I had been wanting to cook some soups in me mate Thermie, hopefully helping me on the road to getting healthier.
I find with some pumpkin soups the flavour can be a bit bland so with this recipe I spiced it up a little with just one ingredient and it is oh so yum! If you don’t have a Thermie you can cook this on the stove top or in the microwave, you will just need to use a vitamiser type kitchen aid to make the pumpkin smooth.
1 Butternut Pumpkin (or other if you prefer) peeled & cut in chunks
1 Brown Onion
2 Tablespoons butter
1 Teaspoon Curry Powder
1 Teaspoon Chicken stock
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 Tablespoons whipping cream
whipping cream & some basil for garnish
Place onion cut in half into Thermie and chop on speed 5 for 3 seconds.
Add butter to Thermie after scraping the onion down the sides and cook at 120 degrees C on speed 1 for 3 minutes.
Add chunks of pumpkin to Thermie and chop on speed 7 for 15 seconds.
Scrape down sides of Thermie. Add water, chicken stock, curry powder, salt & paper. Cook for 20 minutes at 100 degrees on speed 1.
Add 2 Tablespoons whipping cream and mix for 1 minute starting on speed 5 and gradually increase to speed 9.
Serve in soup bowl and garnish with the basil and a dollop of cream.
