Thermomix pea & courgette soup


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


  • 2 leeks, roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • a gulp of olive oil
  • 4 courgettes, roughly chopped
  • 250g frozen garden peas
  • 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

Made with a hint of large family madness, a pinch of dinner parties and a scoop of easy and quick recipes, this blog is a well-round concoction (!!) of tried and tested food we love.

The gang is made off a mum, a dad, 4 girls (aged 17, 15, 6 & 6) and 1 dog. That’s a lot of people to please when it comes to dinner time.

The 2 main characters in the story are: Maud (the human mum) & Momo (the Thermomix), we were both born in France, both have a passion for cooking, simple, tasty food – cooking & baking makes us happy!

Coming soon:
How to get this week's dinners ready in under an hour.
Cook once, eat 5 family dinners.

That's 5 dinners, 50 minutes preparation max, that will then require less than 5 minutes of your time and 20 minutes unsupervised cooking max from start to table, every night.

>>> So much better for the mental load
>>> No food waste so better for the wallet and the planet
>>> Healthy, prepared from scratch dinners

We hope you leave this site with either the inspiration to try out a new recipe, a new skill or an idea for your next cooking adventure.

Thank you for stopping by!
