Potato, Leek And Pecorino Soup

by Tenina Holder

Soup is probably my favourite thing to make in the Thermomix. We always were a big soup family, but now it is the most requested weekend lunch item! I really can never go back to canned soup. Tried and failed! There is something about putting in a few ingredients, adding liquid and finding out you have the most amazing, fragrant, steaming and delicious hot soup at the end of it all; why would you ever not want a Thermomix? Really!

  • 100 g pecorino cheese, cubed
  • 2 tsp peppercorns
  • 1 leek, cleaned and roughly chopped
  • 30 g butter
  • 5 - 6 medium potatoes (I used Ruby Lou for their creamy properties)
  • 650 g water
  • 2 tbsp vegetable stock powder Baconnaise, Dulse And Me!
  • 300 g milk



Place cheese and peppercorns into Thermomix bowl and mill for 10 seconds on speed 10. Set aside.


Place leek and butter into Thermomix bowl and chop for 3 seconds on speed 7. Saute for 3 minutes at Varoma temperature on speed 2. Add potatoes, and chop for a few seconds on speed 4.


Add water and stock powder and cook for 15 minutes at 100°C on speed 2-3 until potatoes are well cooked.


Add milk and cheese and cook for a further 4 minutes at 100°C on speed 2-3. Puree by bringing speed up slowly to speed 8 for approximately 30 seconds. The liquid is extremely hot and may spit as the speed increases, so use caution.


Serve immediately.
