I LOVE this Curried Pumpkin and Red Lentil Soup and it is so easy to make in your Thermomix or similar machine. There is nothing like soup and fresh homemade bread in these cold months.
Pumpkin soup is a huge hit here (remind me to post my basic but delicious pumpkin soup recipe soon too). Actually that is a lie. It’s a huge hit here… with me. No one else seems to like it so it tends to be a soup I make when I have people over or to store in the freezer for a last minute lunch or dinner for myself. Soups freeze, thaw and reheat so well.
One of my most favourite soups is my Bacon and Red Lentil Soup. Red lentils are delicious and a great addition to soups as it gives a very slight peppery taste to the soup (or is that just me?) but helps thicken the soup also. They go so well with pumpkin soup I have found.
My other soup recipes:
This soup can be served straight from the bowl in a chunkier style or can be blended if you want a thick smooth soup. This is quite thick. You may like to thin it with some stock if you do decide to puree it.
This is great served with fresh homemade bread and pull-aparts.
