Love Vegetable Soup?
This vegetable soup is so easy to make in your Thermomix and so incredibly delicious. It was created for The Classics Issue of The 4 Blades Magazine. As you can see, it has lots of yummy root vegetables in hand diced bite sized pieces. What??? Hand diced? Why would you hand dice when you have a Thermomix? Well, the thing is, you don’t want the vegetables to be shredded as it would make the texture really yucky. The Thermomix is perfect for whizzing up the pesto that gets stirred through it (amazing!) and for cooking the soup, but the combination of your hand and a good knife is the best option for the vegetables.
As you can see (or more to the point… can’t see) the addition of the basil pesto (which is dairy free, by the way) doesn’t lead to a green soup. It looks just like a fabulous thick and chunky soup, but with an amazing flavour (and much more budget friendly than canned soup!)
We are fairly confident that this yummy, easy and budget friendly vegetable soup is going to be your best friend during the winter months. Have your Thermomix gently cooking in the background to give you a great burst of nutrition (and flavour!) to keep you warm, and keep you healthy.
It is dairy free, but if you don’t need to be dairy free, consider topping this hearty vegetable soup with thinly sliced Parmesan or pecorino cheese. It will melt perfectly and make this vegetable soup extra delicious!
This was featured in Episode 103 of the podcast: Thermomix Basil Recipes. It’s a great way to use up a bunch of basil on the way out, or perhaps some excess basil you have in the garden after a bumper crop.Print
