Start with the pasta but its optional can be left out or just use a sturdy ready made dried pasta.
Kneed the egg, salt and flour till it forms a hard dough. Leave it to rest till you make the soup.
In the inner bowl of the Speedcooker cook the onion until soft, add the garlic for a short time.
Sprinkle with the red pepper and stir for a few moments. Take care not to burn or it will taste bitter.
Quickly add the meat and caraway. Brown it stirring constantly.

Lock the Lidl on, set it to Soup, Speed 2.
After 20 minutes press Cancel, switch off and let the steam out taking care not to burn hands. You can use wooden spoon to move the valve into position.
Meanwhile make the pasta ready by tearing the dough into small pieces by hand. That is it.
Open the Hotpot and pour the carrots, parsley, and a little more water in. Close the Lidl again.
Set to soup, speed 2 again for 10 min.
After about 10 minutes or 15 if prefer really soft vegetables cancel the program, let out the steam and open the pot.
Remove the whole vegetables like the greens, tomato, pepper, celeriac, cohlrabi.
Now put the cubed potatoes and add a little more salt, black pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, caraway if required.
Do not close the pot. Bring it to boil and cook for 10-15 minutes till the potatoes are soft.
Meanwhile also add the pasta if using.
It is ready when the potatoes are soft and the pasta also cooked floating on the top.
