Meatless Monday – Thermomix Potato and Zucchini Soup

Thermomix Potato and Zucchini Soup 1

Serves 4 generously

I like my soups like my people, warm and hearty, and this one doesn’t disappoint. The zucchini makes it green but not mean and the potatoes make bring some hearty to this soupy party! This soup is deliciously rich and creamy and so flavourful, that you’ll feel like an extra on the set of Oliver asking, “please sir, can I have some more” because you will definitely want some seconds!

I’ve given this recipe a bit of a makeover with some shiny new pics and since the original posting, I’ve discovered that parmesan cheese is not vegetarian. Who knew?! Not me, obviously! However, if you want a vegetarian soup, simply swap out the parmesan for a vegetarian alternative, or simply add 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast at stage 7 and you’ll be right!

One of the best things about the interwebs are the absolutely fabulous people you can meet there, and Stephanie is one of those people. One day when we were having a soup-er chat on facebook, she shared this, her favourite soup recipe. I was totally stoked because not only is it full of flavour but because one of my 101 things to do in 1001 days  is to try making 10 new soups. This was just the first of many but it shot right to the top of the soup-er league!
