Whatever Vegetable Soup – See Why it’s the Best

Aptly named, my Whatever Vegetable Soup is a meal that will change each time you make it. Adaptable to use any selection of vegetables you have in your fridge, you can’t really go wrong no matter the combination you use.

Perfect for cold nights, this simple meal will warm you up from the inside! Containing mostly vegetables, it is a nourishing and satisfying Thermomix vegetable soup.

It gets even better

There is a pimped up (but just as simple) version of this hearty vegetable soup in my third cookbook – Feel Good Food Made Easy – called Chunky Minestrone. This book is a collection of winter warmers and as well as a great selection of soup recipes, it also contains recipes for breakfast, right through to dinner and dessert.

FAQs on Whatever Vegetable Soup

Are there any vegetables I shouldn’t use in this?

In my experience, no. I’ve made this soup a zillion times using so many different types of vegetables. Never have I had it turn out anything less than delicious!

I can’t eat pasta, what can I use instead?

You can simply leave it out and increase some of the veg slightly. Alternatively, rice is lovely in it – if using, increase cooking time at Step 4 to 15 minutes.

I don’t have any Odds-and-Ends Stock Paste, what can I use instead?

You can use a different TMX stock paste,  or use some powdered stock. Finally, you can replace the water in the recipe with liquid stock.

Can I double the recipe?

Definitely not. This recipe makes an entire TMX bowl of soup and can not be doubled.

Does Whatever Vegetable Soup freeze?

Yes, this soup freezes and defrosts well.

How’s it done?

Apart from the veggies, there are just a few staple ingredients you need to make this Thermomix vegetable soup: tinned tomatoes, oil, stock and dried herbs.

1. Throw in the vegetables and chop them up.

2. Saute with some oil for 10 minutes to get them sweating.

3. Add the liquid and flavourings and cook for 10 minutes.

4. Add the pasta and cook until al dente.

I hope you really love this hearty vegetable soup! It is a great option for a last minute dinner when you’re scraping the bottom of the veggie drawer.

I cant wait to make this!! Your recipes never let me down… Silly questions by I was wondering I have a heap of tomatoes to use up could I just use them instead for the tin ones as they are or will they be tough the skins?!?

Made the chunky vegetable soup but used chicken stock. Included turnips in the mix. Chopped only 10 secs for a chunkier version. Absolutely delicious and hearty!

I love this soup! I make it every weekend to use up all the leftover veg before we go to the markets to buy more. Its such a easy, versatile recipe and I’ve used risoni, macaroni pasta and angel hair spaghetti in it, depending on what’s in the pantry. Thanks Bec!

Just made this for the second time. Both times I’ve made it with buckwheat kernels instead of pasta and it was perfect!
