I have been doing a version of this pumpkin soup for about 10 years now, and there has been a popular recipe in the group files for it – I finally got around to blogging it and giving people yet another use for their powdered gold (babas!). I hope you all enjoy this healthy Thermomix recipe, Love Nik xx

Use your sharp blade for this recipe.
At step 1 add on a couple of seconds chopping time, if required.
At step 2 you may need to add on 1-2 minutes cooking time, or until onions and garlic are cooked to your liking
At step 4 add on a cooking time if required.
At step 5 allow to cool slightly (5-10 minutes) and then very slowly increase speed, then slowly decrease speed towards the end of the blending time. Blend for longer if required, taking the same precautions to ensure no build up of pressure when blending.
