Thermomix Pumpkin Soup with Chorizo Crumb

As the weather cools I instantly crave cosy comfort food such as this simple Thermomix pumpkin soup.  You could easily make this recipe in a saucepan on the stovetop, so don’t be put off if you don’t have a Thermomix.

This recipe came to me whilst I was working on my new Thermomix cookbook, a Mexican Thermokitchen. I had been perfecting a Jalapeno soup for the book and started wondering what the soup would be like with a chorizo dust.  I knew the kids wouldn’t like the jalapeno soup so I started tinkering with my favourite pumpkin soup recipe. The result is delicious! My kids didn’t even notice that I slipped a jalapeno into the soup!  The Jalapeno is optional, you’re welcome to leave it out if you have little children.

Let’s talk about this chorizo crumb. The chorizo takes this soup to another flavour level. Half the chorizo is cooked with the pumpkin which infuses the flavour throughout the soup. The remaining chorizo is fried to a delicious, crisp, salty crumb and sprinkled over the soup before serving.

I have also roasted fresh jalapeno and sliced them as a spicy garnish adding another flavour and warmth to the soup.
