Thai Red Lentil Soup in the Thermomix

Thai Red Lentil Soup in the Thermomix

This is one of Ellen’s favourite soups to whip up, and I’m a big fan – so of course we had to share the recipe with you too! It’s a quick-fix meal, full of fresh flavours while also creamy and nourishing. While there’s absolutely no need to freeze it, I love the fact that it’s a puréed soup meaning it’s so easy to reheat, even if you’ve forgotten to defrost (see page 165 for instructions)! That’s real fast food.
