Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Soup

My first attempt at soup in the Thermomix worked out so well, that I thought I’d make another one.  A lot of creamed soup recipes include flour, butter or cream to thicken them – but I think potato or sweet potato works well, while providing a bit more nutritional value.
