Today I have a soup recipe to share with you guys. But before that let me give you some news.
I've created a new blog.. Yep, a third one. I called it Bitkisel Cafe. If you are interested in plant-based nutrient dense meals you can visit the new blog.
I've published my first recipe, Mixed Berry Overnight Oats, at the end of October. Soon there will be others. I will publish in 3 languages as usual, English, Turkish and Italian. I've created also a Facebook page for those who wants to know instantly what's going on in the blog.
And now let's come back to our delicious soup recipe. What is better than a warm soup in cold autumn days?
This is just an example to the cereal-legume mix soups that you can easily prepare with your Thermomix. There are many assorted blends available. Mine was sold as "Rustic Soup" here in Italy. I had tried already some other mixtures called as Spring soup, Winter soup, Four Season... etc.
In my rustic mix there are farro (spelt), rice, red lentils, split peas and green lentils as you can see in the picture.
I wrote "Rustic Soup mix" among the ingredients below but another lentil/cereal soup mix would do just fine too.
You can prepare a similar mixture yourself simply using the ingredients you have at home.
130 g onion, roughly chopped
35 g extra virgin olive oil
30 g tomato paste
200 g rustic soup mix
1300 g water
Thermomix Vegetable stock concentrate (I used 20 g)
Salt (if needed)
1 tbsp dried mint
- Chop onion for 5 seconds on Speed 5.
- Scrape down the sides of TM Bowl with spatula. Add oil and tomato paste. Cook for 5 minutes at 100°C on Speed 1.
- Add legume-cereal mixture, water and Thermomix concentrate. Cook for 35- 40 minutes at 100°C on Speed 1.
- Add mint, adjust the salt if needed. Blend for 1 minute on Speed 10.
