Recipe's preparation

  1. Add onion, garlic and bacon to Thermomix bowl. Chop 4 secs / sp 5. Scrape down edges and add olive oil and curry powder (you could use more if you like). Saute 3 mins / Varoma temp / Sp 1.
  2. Add pumpkinand up to 200g of water (don't go over the maximum level on the jug!). Don't worry if it looks like there isn't enough liquid added as a lot of liquid will come out of the pumpkin while cooking. At thi stage its better to add less water than you think as pumpkins can vary in their water content. Add stock concentrate and cook 25-30 mins / 100° / Sp 1.
  3. SLOWLY turn the speed dial up to Sp 4 until balanced and no longer vibrating. Once settled, slowly turn speed dial up to Sp 9 / 1 min. Add cream and combine 5 secs / sp 4.

    If you like serve dolloped with some sour cream and sprinkled with chives or a little nutmeg.

I have been making Carolas orginal pumpkin soup for years and we all love it however over time it has been adapted to cater for a lower carb diet and we have been making it this way ever since. Onion is relatively high in carbs so if you are following a low carb/keto diet go small or omit entirely. you can also adjust macros by increasing bacon and cream content if needed tmrc_emoticons.)
