Pizzoccheri Soup
« on: September 08, 2009, 10:05:31 am »
Pizzoccheri Soup



Ingredients:

200g green cabbage
2 cloves garlic
1 onion, peeled and quartered
1 large potato, peeled and cubed
3 Tbsp olive oil
1000g vegetable or chicken stock
100g buckwheat noodles or wholewheat spaghetti,
broken
300g Fontina, Jarlsberg or
Gruyere cheese, cubed
Salt and pepper, to taste

Method:

Clean, trim and thinly slice the cabbage and place into the Varoma dish and tray.

Place garlic cloves into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds on Speed 7. Add the onion and chop for 5 seconds on Speed 5. Add the potato cubes and oil and sauté for 7 minutes at 90°C on Reverse + Speed 1.

Place stock into TM bowl, place Varoma on top and cook for 10 minutes at 100°C on Reverse + Speed 1. Add the broken pasta pieces and cook for another 10 minutes at 100°C on Reverse + Speed 1.

Check to see how soft the cabbage is. It depends on how thickly you have cut the cabbage. If necessary, place the soup into a Thermoserver to keep warm while finishing the cabbage. You may need to add some water to the TM bowl and cook the cabbage for a bit longer on Varoma Temperature on Speed 1.

Once the cabbage has cooked, place into a serving bowl, sprinkle cheese over the cabbage and then top with the soup. Check for seasoning and serve.

JD - This could be called Poor Man's Soup Thermomixer - it is certainly different but we enjoyed it. I tweaked the recipe a little by not steaming the cabbage but adding it into the soup with the stock and using 100g of leftover grated tasty cheese which I threw into the soup once it was cooked. I used fettucine pasta rather than open a new packet of noodles.  You could add any left over vegies at the end of the cooking as well.  Thumbs up from us.

Great, have all the ingredients to go for this one - wondered what to do with that cabbage ???  Have to use ordinary spaghetti though non of the good stuff in my pantry.

You could knock this one up if unexpected visitors turned up at your doorstep at mealtime.
