      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation




    Place onion and olive oil into TM bowl and chop for 3 seconds on speed 7.


    Scrape down sides of bowl.


    Saute for 3 minutes at Varoma temperature on speed 2 


    Add asparagus, sweet potato and stock, cook for 15 minutes at 100°C on speed 2 until sweet potato is well cooked.


    Puree by bringing speed up slowly from speed 1 to speed 9 for approximately 30 seconds. The liquid is extremely hot and may spit as the speed increases, so use caution. 


    Garnish with cracked black pepper and fresh basil leaves. Serve with slice of bread.

    OMG this is yum. I didn't have liquid veggie stock so used Vegeta Gourmet Stock and water. So easy and quick.

    Love this soup. Needed to use up the asparagus but children are not mad on it let alone husband. The addition of the sweet potato turned it into a lovely robust soup, which was still asparagus, but subtle. Amazing! Thank you for sharing.

    Simple and easy to make. Nice, thick texture (don't like soups too runny). Good flavour. Will definitely make again.
