Soups, such as this broccoli and leek soup, have always been a hugely popular lunch or light dinner choice in our house, especially since Thermomix makes them so simply and quickly. They are also a great way of adding extra goodness to meals (soups ‘hide’ veggies – a great tip for mums!) or using up a surplus that might otherwise go to waste.
This light green soup is full of flavour. As a matter of fact, it’s hard to believe that so few ingredients can result in a soup this good! Cooking gently at 90°C (a simmer) ensures maximum flavour – the fragrance that would normally fill your kitchen when boiling a soup is kept in the soup and contributes to the flavour instead. I like to serve this with some crusty bread.
This recipe is suitable for Thermomix TM5 and TM31.
- Chop broccoli, leek and oil 7 sec/speed 4½.
- Scrape down sides of TM bowl, add stock, pink salt and pepper then cook 18 min/90°C/speed 1.
- Blend 2 min/speed 5-10, increasing gradually to speed 10 over the first 15 seconds, then serve in warm soup bowls.
