Looking for the best Thermomix Pumpkin Soup?
In Episode 112, we share three delicious Thermomix pumpkin soup recipes (and also a great recipe for making your own chicken stock!) It’s getting pretty chilly here in Brisbane and these three soups are deliciously warming. If it’s not particularly cold where you are, never fear, a classic (or not so classic) pumpkin soup is a great starter or easy dinner.
The recipes we chose this week are:
Recipe 1 – Chicken Stock (from Skinnymixers)
A key component of soup is, of course, stock. We generally use the vegetable stock concentrate that is straight out of the recipe book that was shipped with our Thermomix but we thought we would use this opportunity to try something new. So we gave the Skinnymixers base stock recipe (that can be made as either chicken or beef) a go. This recipe is also in the Healthy Mix cookbook. It was SO easy and a really nice change in the stock department.
Recipe 2 – Best Ever Pumpkin Soup (from The Recipe Community)
This is a delicious traditional style pumpkin soup. The colour is a vibrant orange and the taste is pure, robust pumpkiny goodness. Polly absolutely LOVED this soup too, it was fantastic for her little 18 month old spoon technique development. This Thermomix pumpkin soup was really quick to make too.
Recipe 3 – Super Easy Roast Pumpkin Soup (from The Organised Housewife)
This soup is really creamy and light, a perfect starter dish. It’s also super easy and the fact that a lot of work is done early with the pumpkin and onion roasting in the oven it means you can do other things with your Thermomix while it’s roasting.
Now we couldn’t follow this recipe to the letter as we have a TM31 and the quantity was a little much. So we could only get 790g of stock in before reaching the max line. As always (especially with soups) no matter what the recipe says don’t go over that max line as it’s just not safe. Also, we went up to Speed 3 instead of Speed 2 so that the soup incorporated and heated properly.
Recipe 4 – Coconut Curried Pumpkin Soup (from Skinnymixers)
If you love your pumpkin soup and you want something just a little bit different this recipe is a ripper. It’s got a really nice and mild curry flavour (not spicy at all) and the coconut cream led to a beautiful creamy consistency. We didn’t have the Babas curry powder but we did have some of our Malaysian Meat Curry Powder which we created when we needed to make our own curry powder for some Skinnymixers recipes.
