Pumpkin Soup - Mark II

Mark hates pumpkin no matter how it's cooked - he always has, until he tried this version of pumpkin soup. This soup has a number of different vegetables added to the mix, so it creates a really lovely flavour. The Thermomix makes the smoothest purees, but you can leave this soup slightly chunky if you wish.

1 red onion, peeled and quartered
1 stick celery, roughly chopped
1 carrot, peeled and roughly chopped
1 garlic, peeled
1 spring fresh rosemary
sea salt and cracked black pepper 
20g olive oil
750g pumpkin, peeled and cut into pieces
750g water
1 tablespoon of stock concentrate
olive oil, for serving

  1. Place onion, celery, carrot, garlic, rosemary and salt and pepper into the TM bowl.  Chop for 5 seconds/speed 5.  Scrape down bowl.
  2. Add oil and saute for 10 minutes/90 degrees/speed 1 lid off.
  3. Add pumpkin to TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds/speed 5.
  4. Add water and stock concentrate and cook for 25 minutes/varoma temperature/speed 1.
  5. Blend soup for 30 seconds by carefully bringing dial up to speed 9.
  6. Serve in bowls with a drizzle of olive oil and some crusty artisan bread.
