In the Thermomix: Quirky Cooking’s Creamy Chicken & Brown Rice Soup

I love a good chicken soup, and trust me, there can be some bad ones. My favourite chicken soup is this one which I adapted for the Slow Cooker.

Well, that was until I met this one. I put off cooking this chicken soup for a while, because it seemed too complicated with it’s almonds and it’s brown rice. Silly me. It’s easy, and it’s hearty and it feels like you’re doing a yoga class AND a self-development session while eating. It’s THAT good for you.

I’ve just bought Jo’s cookbook, so I’m looking forward to checking out more of her recipes. You can also check out her blog here.



50g of raw brown rice
50g raw almonds
1 onion, halved
2 garlic cloves
1 stalk of celery, quartered
1 large carrot, quartered
30g olive oil
300g cubed chicken
1 litre water
2 Tbs chicken stock paste or vege stock paste {I used vegetable}
100g raw brown rice
Chopped fresh parsley
100g frozen peas


♥ Place rice in Thermomix bowl and grind for 1 minute on speed 9. Add almonds and grind 20 secs on speed 9. Set these aside.

    I love this soup too! I go the option of adding extra chicken & steaming more veg & pouring the soup over. Perfect winter fare :)

    I’m confused – is it 50g rice or 150?? Recipe says 50g at the top and then 100g at the bottom?
