As the weather chills it’s always comforting to have a few hearty, healthy soups in your repertoire. Preparing soup in the Thermomix is particularly easy as the whole process is completed in the bowl. Vegetables are chopped, sauteed and slow cooked in the Thermomix. Once cooked its simply a matter of blending the soup to the desired level of chunkiness or smooth texture.

Each year I add a few more soup recipes to the ThermoKitchen recipe files. You can tell when I’m finding the weather a little nippy because I will be sharing a new soup recipe.  Although every member of the family has a favourite soup I like to keep up the variety.  Anais loves Chinese Chicken Sweet Corn Soup Brett’s favourite is my Jalapeno Soup which is in my Mexican Cookbook and my favourite is lentil soup!

Given that lentil soup is my favourite it’s a little crazy I haven’t shared the recipe before now! Although, in my defence, I rarely make my soup the same twice! So it has been a little hard to get down on paper.

The quantities may vary but the substance of the recipe is always the same.

Thermomix Lentil Soup Tips

  • Always use dried lentils, the cooking time of the soup is important to allow all the flavours to come together. If you use canned lentils the soup would be mashed and have less flavour.
  • Use fresh spices, the spices are subtle but really important to the recipe. The longer dried spices have been open the less flavour they will have in the soup.
  • The most delicate flavours are added at the end of the soup. Coconut cream, coriander, garam masala and spinach are added right at the end of cooking so there is a fresher finish to the soup.
  • I love pumpkin in lentil soup. The pumpkin gives the soup a smoother, sweeter flavour. Plus pumpkin and lentils are a match made in heaven!

    This is seriously the most delicious soup I’ve ever cooked!! We all kept eating it long after we should’ve stopped because it’s so good!

  2. Louise says:

    I’m cooking this now and it smells AMAZING!!

    FYI – the recipe refers to both coconut milk and cream … I’m assuming it’s cream?

    1. Hi Louise
      So sorry for the confusion. You can use either cream or milk. 🙂
      Thank you so much for highlighting the discrepancy 🙂

    Just made a batch and is delicious. The only things I changed were to put the spices in towards the end of sautéing the onions and garlic, to bring out their flavour.

    I also added an extra 150mls of coconut milk. I’m very happy with the result and this is my new go-to recipes for a chilly winter’s night.

  4. Kathy says:

    Hi, this recipe looks amazing! Can you use Coconut Milk that is from a carton? Like Vitasoy Coconut Milk? Or does it need to be canned version?

    Many Thanks

    1. Hi Kathy
      Thanks for your question. The flavour and texture of this dish relies on the extra oil that is found in the canned coconut milk. The carton version won’t give as nice a result.

    Many Thanks Julie!
