Roughly translated/adapted from A Tutto Vapore

Spinach and potato soup with omelette


Omelette (Royal cream)
4 eggs (60 g)
100 g cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pinch nutmeg

1 onion, cut in half (70g)
20 grams of oil
80 grams of celery, cut into pieces
100 grams of carrots, cut into pieces
400 grams of potatoes, cut into pieces
80 g leeks, cut into pieces 1 cm
800 g of water
2 vegetable stock cubes or 1 Tbsp TMX stock concentrate
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
150 grams of spinach leaves (or 150 g frozen chopped spinach thawed)
100 g cream


1. Place all the ingredients for omelette in the TM bowl, mix for 10 seconds on Speed 4

2. Pour mixture into a jug until ready to cook the soup. Clean and dry the TM bowl.

3. When at point 6. below, line the container of Varoma with a sheet of baking paper, moistened and wrung out (big enough to cover the edges) and pour in the mixture.

4. Place the onion in the TM bowl, chop for 3 seconds on Speed 5.
Add the oil, sauté for 2 minutes at Varoma temperature on Speed 1.

5. Add celery, carrot, potato and leek, chop for 4 seconds on Speed 5.

6. Add water, stock and spices, position the baking paper-lined Varoma with omelette mixture and cook for about 20 minutes at Varoma temperature on Speed 1. After the 20 minutes set aside the Varoma with the cooked omelette.

7. Add spinach and cream to the TM bowl, cook for 3 minutes at 100°C on Speed 2. Mix for 30 seconds at Speed 10, carefully holding down the Measuring Cup. Season as necessary.

8. Carefully remove the omelette with the paper from the Varoma, cut into diamond shapes with a knife.

9. Pour the soup into 6 serving plates and decorate with the omelette pieces. Serve immediately.

Suggestion: In place of the omelette you can cook meat balls in the Varoma to add to the soup or decorate the soup with cubes of ham or bacon. For a lighter version replace the cream in the soup with milk. The omelette pieces can be used to decorate all of the soups.
