The recipe for this soup has been translated and adapted from Thermomix TM31 Imprescindible para tu cocina, which is the book you receive when buying a Thermomix in Spain.

If you wish to make this in a saucepan, just put everything (apart from the cheese) in the pan and simmer for 20 minutes, but do not allow to boil. You can then blend it to make it smooth.

Ingredients

Method

  1. Grate the cheese in the bowl by dropping chunk of it onto running blades Speed 6 or 7 or 8, depending on the hardness of the cheese.
  2. Remove and reserve.
  3. Put the remaining ingredients into the bowl and programme 20 minutes / 90° / Speed 5.
  4. Serve, garnished with the grated cheese.

Variations

The original recipe calls for the soup to be garnished with crisped Serrano ham, but as a vegetarian, I opted for cheese. It also suggests that you strain it through the internal steam basket - don't create washing up, it is not necessary!

I have also scaled down the quantities to suit the size of jarred white asparagus that I can easily buy.
