      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Recipe's preparation

    Warm and hearty pumpkin soup
  1. Tip: I use the TM5 Pumpkin Soup recipe off the chip and just add in the extra ingredients at the relevant steps. 


    1. Chop onion, ginger and garlic 3 sec / sp 5

    2. Add curry powder and olive oil, and saute 3 min / 120deg / sp 1

    3. Add pumpkin and potato and chop 15 sec / sp 7

    4. Add remaining ingredients except creme fraiche and cook 20 min / 100 deg / sp 1

    5. Add creme fraiche and blend 1 min / sp 5-9, gradually increasing speed

    6. Serve topped with a dollop of Creme fraiche (or sour cream) and season with salt, pepper and a little bit of grated parmesan

As this has lentils in it, it is heartier than regular soup so is still filling without bread. 

If you have a toddler, try giving it to them to drink with a large straw, careful it's not too hot! Saves a bit of mess
