      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

  1. 1.
    Place hock bone into very large soup pot (Approx 8 litre capacity) and cover with water. Put onto stove, cover, and bring to the boil. Boil for 1 1/2 hours.

    While this is cooking, prepare the vegetables.

    Quarter the potato and place in TM bowl and chop 5 sec / sp 5 . Tip chopped potato into a large bowl.

    Quarter the onion and chop in TM bowl 10 sec / sp 5. Place in bowl with potato.

    Cut carrots into chunks and chop in TM bowl 5 sec / sp 5. Tip into other chopped vegetables.

    Cut swede, parsnip, and celery into chunks and chop in TM bowl 5 sec / sp 5. Tip into other chopped vegetables.

    Cut pumpkin into chunks and chop in TM bowl 15 sec / sp 5.Reserve with other chopped vegetables.

    Rinse TM bowl but this water can be added to the soup when the vegetables go in.

    Once the hock bone has cooked for 1 1/2 hours, remove bone and meat and place onto a plate to cool.

    Meanwhile, add the dried green peas, risoni noodles, pearl barley and salt to the soup and once it has come to the boil, cook for 1/2 hour, stirring occasionally.

    Once hock bone is cool enough to handle, break meat off the bone and cut into bite-sized pieces.

    Add reserved chopped vegetables, diced bacon, and the hock bone meat into the soup, adding extra water to make it a "soupy" consistency, and bring to boil, then cook for a further hour.

    Enjoy with a crusty bread, or bread of your choice!!
