This Very Veggie Soup recipe for the Thermomix, with Kale Pesto was one of the first soups I shared here on the website. I’ve always loved a good veggie soup!
The recipe came about when I was at a friend’s house and she told me that all vegetable soups were bland. I took this as a challenge to make one for her that would change her view. It worked.
This soup is yum yum yum and the Pesto adds a great dimension! The mix of veggies I have listed work really well together, but can be swapped around depending on what you have on hand – just stick to the same total weight of vegetables.
I love the bursts of sweetness the corn give so recommend you don’t leave it out.
A high proportion of vegetables of course! Along with some olive oil for sauteing, stock and water. Lemon juice brings out the flavour and adds that little bit of extra oomph.
Only six ingredients are needed in this Pesto:
First, make the Pesto. To do this, toast the nuts, throw everything in your thermal cooker and blitz. Set aside.
To make the soup, firstly place onion, leek, garlic and oil in mixer bowl. Chop, scrape down bowl, then saute.
Next, add tomatoes, zucchini, carrots, cabbage, capsicum, celery and stock. Chop.
After chopping the veggies, add water to 2cm below the maximum-fill line inside the bowl. Be sure to not fill any fuller than this.
Cook for 20 minutes, then add corn kernels and lemon juice.
Stir with a spatula, then cook a further 2 minutes.
Serve Very Veggie Soup topped with the Pesto.
