This Mushroom Soup Thermomix recipe is a thermo’d version of a creamy mushroom soup that reminds me of my childhood. I’ve always LOVED mushrooms and my mum has been making this soup for as long as I can remember. It is also one of the stove-top recipes she taught me how to make before moving out of home years ago. Thanks, mum!
Other than the Thermomix what is needed for this Mushroom Soup?
Like many of the recipes you’ll find here at Thermobexta, this recipe uses a simple mix of ingredients that produces a flavoursome, nourishing meal. Here’s what you’ll need for this one:
- Olive oil
- Mushrooms (duh!)
- Vegetable Stock Paste Concentrate
- Salt and (plenty of) freshly cracked black pepper
It’s actually a little bit amazing that this mix of ingredients makes such a very delicious soup, but trust me, it just does!
How to make Mushroom Soup in the Thermomix
(Full recipe is below, on the recipe card)
We start off chopping and sauteeing onion and garlic in some olive oil.
Next we add some simple vegetables – potato and carrot. Since these are harder veggies than the mushrooms, they are chopped first. These vegetables not only add nutrition, but help to thicken the soup and provide a great texture to the finished product.
Then come the mushrooms. They are blended down (with the other bits already in the bowl) to a fine consistency.
Next the water and stock paste concentrate are added and the soup is cooked for 20 minutes.
By this point, the soup is cooked and it’s time for the finishing touches. The cream and pepper are now added and mixed in. Now, I do call for a fair amount of pepper and if you ask me, it’s essential. However if you’re not as keen as I am on pepper you can reduce it! It does go so well with the mushrooms.
Give the soup a taste and season with some salt and more pepper, if needed. You can also puree the soup now if you would like a very smooth consistency. For our family, the texture is perfect as is but it is certainly fine to blend down further if you prefer! Using the Thermomix this Mushroom Soup is pureed easy-as-pie – it really makes light work of it!
