Thermomix Watermelon Soup

Well, in the hunt for seasonal produce for the Thermomix in Australia Monthly Mouthful competition, I found watermelons going very cheaply. It seemed a bit early in the year for them, but decided to try a couple of recipes for the competition.

This soup is based on a Charlie Trotter recipe that used both rockmelon and watermelon - so one half yellow and the other half red. But the rockmelons were not in the fridge, so just watermelon for now.

You can make the soup without the seeds, but they look cute. You can just grate chocolate over the top of the soup.

Watermelon Soup with chocolate seeds.


60g dark chocolate, buttons or chunks
60g sugar
1kg watermelon, seeded and cut into chunks


Place chocolate into TM bowl and melt for 4 minutes
at 60°C on Speed 1.

Place chocolate into piping bag and make little seeds,
or just place little blobs onto baking paper and mould into
shapes like watermelon seeds.

Place sugar in TM bowl and blitz for 20 seconds
on Speed 9.

Add watermelon chunks and blend for 1 minute on
Speed 6.

Serve chilled. Very simple, but very refreshing.
