*These recipes are written for the Thermomix, but can be made in any high speed blender. I cooked them in the Thermomix, but you can cook them on the stove too.

As soon as my vegetable stock was made, the day I received my loaned Thermomix, I set to work making two soups: first a Carrot soup, and then a Butternut Squash soup.  (And the beauty of the Thermie is that I did this in between putting my children to bed. That’s impressive.)

I am terrible at following recipes, but just these two times, I thought I’d make a special effort and follow the recipes from the Every Day Cookbook exactly, but I only kind of did, and here they are:

This soup could not be any simpler or faster. It tastes fresh and wholesome when just made, and even better the next day.

  • 120 g cream
  • ]½ tsp sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • a few sprigs fresh coriander
  • water or stock as needed
Instructions
  1. Grind lentils, lemon peel and ginger 20 seconds/Speed 10.
  2. Add onion, carrots, butter and stock paste or stock cube if using. Chop a few seconds/Speed 4½.
  3. Add water or stock to the 1 litre mark on the bowl. Cook 15 minutes/100ºC/Speed 2.
  4. Add coriander, salt and pepper. Add cream and milk (if using).

The original recipe for this next soup calls for pumpkin, but we had Butternut Squash at home, so it became a Butternut Squash recipe instead, and it was totally fantastic.

A thoroughly delicious soup. Warm flavours and so easy to make!
Ingredients
  • 1 onion
  • half a butternut squash, cubed
  • 1 carrot, roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 500g vegetable stock (2 cups, roughly)
  • Thyme, to garnish
  • cream, to garnish
Instructions
  1. Place onion into bowl and chop for 5 seconds at speed 7.
  2. Add butter/oil and saute for 3 mins at 100 degrees on speed 1.
  3. Add pumpkin and carrot and garlic and chop for 15 seconds at speed 7.
  4. Add stock and cook for 20 mins on 100 degrees at speed 1.
  5. Swirl some fresh cream over the top of the soup, and add a few sprigs of thyme to garnish (but be sure to eat it, it's the perfect herb for this soup!)

I think my favourite thing about Thermomix soups is that they come out so creamy and smooth, they look like you’ve emptied a pot of  cream into them, even if you’ve added no cream at all. Yum, yum, yum.

    So, the lentils aren’t cooked first? We have a vitamix and it sounds like a great soup.

    Nope, no need to cook them first. You basically turn them into flour ;) A vitamix would do it perfectly!
