Pumpkin and Carrot Soup With Thermomix

Pumpkin and Carrot Soup With Thermomix

Pumpkin and Carrot Soup is a hot dish particularly versatile.I use it as a main course for my children's dinner, with much extravirgin olive oil and parmesan.

The idea was given me by one of my sisters-in law. She told me how crazy for this soup her children where.Until that moment I did the soup only with pumpkin, not with carrots. But, I must say, that to combine together the two orange ingredients wasn't a bad idea at all!

But the history of this soup doesn't stop here.

I consider this soup a very catchy course to be served during a dinner. Thus, it is a dish not only for children but for us adults too.Yummy!!!

It seems a bit funny to serve babyfood in a dinner for adults ... But adults love it too! As we were all a bit like Peter Pan, the pumpkin and carrot soup is a big hit even among those who are no longer children.

My advice

During a dinner with friends (we were really lots of people and we still had the boxes of the recent removal) I wanted to make something original. So, I served the pumpkin and carrots soup in beautiful hand-made dishes (rustic-looking and elegant) and gave the opportunity to the people to put into the soup a soft cheese or of goat or of cow milk.

A delight and a handsome look!

Try the two cheeses and let me know which option you prefer.
