Aush is an Afghan soup which seems to take a handful of rather random ingredients, throw them together in a bowl, and call the end product a soup. 

When I looked at the recipe I thought it was an odd mix - lamb, chicken stock, noodles, chard, beans.... 

I continued regardless and I have to say, I loved it.  I particularly love the addition of the yoghurt at the end, so don't skip that bit.

It is really tasty and something a bit different - definitely worth a try!

(adapted from various recipes on the web)


*  1 onion
*  2 cloves garlic
*  300g lamb leg - chopped (slightly frozen - about 15 mins in the freezer)
*  20g Extra Virgin Olive Oil
*  1 tsp ground coriander
*  1 tsp paprika
*  1 tbsp vegetable stock concentrate
*  2 tbsp tomato paste
*  100g spaghetti
*  35g chicken stock concentrate
*  400g mixed beans - rinsed and drained
*  100g chard (or spinach or kale, whichever takes your fancy)
*  1.25kg water

Natural Yoghurt to garnish


1.  Place onion and garlic in TM bowl.  Chop for 2 seconds on speed 5.

2.  Add lamb.  Lock lid and press turbo button 3-4 times.

3.  Add EVOO and saute for 5 minutes, at  100°, on reverse, speed 1 (with MC off).

Remove lamb mixture and place in Thermoserve to keep hot.

5.  Without cleaning the bowl, add water and chicken stock concentrate.  Cook for 5 minutes, at  100°, on speed 1.
