Thermomix pea & courgette soup

One of my winter favourite. My family loves it too – the bigs like a good soup and the smalls are happy enough if they can drink it with a straw and luckily this particular soup is smooth enough to allow just that.

It can also be frozen so make an ideal lunch for those days when there’s just not enough hour.

Serve with warm bread and butter – yum!


Serves 6

Active time: 10 minutes – Total time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 leeks, roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • a gulp of olive oil
  • 4 courgettes, roughly chopped

  • 2 vegetable stock cubes (to make 1L)
  • 4 thyme sprigs, leaves only
  • 1tsp grated nutmeg
  • 2 bay leaves
  • salt & pepper
  • Fresh mint and creme fraiche to garnish

Let’s go…

  1. Put 2 leeks, roughly chopped and 3 garlic cloves into mixing bowl and chop 3 seconds / speed 5. Scrape down the sides
  2. Add a gulp of olive oil. Saute 5 minutes / Varoma / speed 1.
  3. Add 4 courgettes, roughly chopped and cook 5 minutes / 100 C / speed 1.
  4. Add 250g frozen peas & 500 ml vegetable stock. Cook 5 minutes / Varoma / Speed 1.

Delicious. Bon appetit x
