Method 1: Simple Soup Maker Tomato Soup Recipe

Ingredients

A dish in a bowl with ingredients on the background
  • Olive oil
  • Tomatoes / Tomato puree
  • Grated cheese
  • Chilli flakes / Red pepper
  • Vegetable stock
  • Salt
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Carrot
  • Sugar
  • Celery

Step 1: Prep All the Ingredients

Begin by gathering all the ingredients you will be using to make your tomato soup. Ensure you peel garlic, carrot, onions and any other ingredient that may require extra attention.

Place your soup maker on a flat surface in your cooking space. Also, select the type of tomato soup you prefer — smooth or chunky.

Instead of fresh tomatoes, you can also opt for tinned tomatoes.

Step 2: Chop the Ingredients

When you are done prepping all your ingredients, it’s time to chop the tomatoes (unless you go for tinned tomatoes), onion, carrot, red pepper and celery into thin cubes, then place them into your soup maker.

Alternatively, if your soup maker comes with a blending function, you can place the ingredients inside the soup maker and chop them with minimal effort. Blending the tomatoes into a tomato purée makes everything easy to mix.

Step 3: Sauté the Onions, Garlic, and Carrots

Once you’re done chopping everything into fine cubes approximately 1 -2cm thick, it’s time to sauté your ingredients with olive oil.

It is worth mentioning that sautéing the ingredients such as onion, garlic, pepper, and other spices enhances the flavour and intensifies the tomato soup’s overall taste.

On the flip side, if your soup maker lacks a sauté function, it is always advisable to use a separate pan for this step. And transfer the mixture back to your soup maker.

Step 4: Add Freshly Chopped Tomatoes

When the sautéing process is finished, add your fresh tomatoes to the soup maker and stir for approximately one minute.

Then pour in the vegetable stock until it reaches the max fill line of your soup maker, secure on the lid. And set the cooking time to 30 minutes. For this step, always ensure that you don’t overfill or underfill your soup maker.

Step 5: Tasting, Seasoning, and Serving

Once the cooking time is complete, season well and taste to check if the flavours are well balanced.

Alternatively, you can always add a little more sugar, salt, or tomato puree to enhance the colour and flavour of your soup.

When your soup is cooked, use a spoon to scoop your tasty tomato soup from the soup maker into a serving bowl. Garnish using a little grated cheese or chilli flakes. And enjoy your delicious results.

Method 2: Soup Maker Tomato and Basil Soup Recipe

Ingredients

  • Shallots
  • Red pepper
  • Garlic
  • 5 medium canned tomatoes
  • 1 medium potato
  • 1 large peeled carrot
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Vegetable stock
  • Salt
  • Cream

Step 1: Adding the Ingredients to the Soup Maker

Add all your chopped ingredients except the fresh basil into the soup maker. Make sure to stir the ingredients together so that everything is evenly distributed. When adding the ingredients to the soup maker, watch out for the max line.

The min line at the bottom indicates the least amount of ingredients you need to add to the soup maker. If you are short on ingredients, you can always add water or stock to your soup maker to make up for the difference.

Step 2: Adding the Lid

Once everything is added and stirred in the soup maker, you can put the lid on. Select the smooth setting on your soup maker.

Step 3: Alert

Depending on how long your soup maker takes to cook the soup, you should be alerted by a ring or ping once it is done.

Step 4: Adding the Fresh Basil

Carefully open the soup maker and add the fresh basil to make your tomato basil soup. Depending on your preference, you can have your fresh basil chopped or whole.

Step 5: Blending the Soup

Now that all the ingredients are in the soup maker, including the chopped basil, blend everything in the manual setting for at least 20 seconds. Adding cream to this step will give you a creamy tomato soup.

If the soup machine does not have a blending option, you can always use a hand blender or a jug blender. However, ensure that your blender jug can hold hot soup.

Step 6: Serve

Serve in a bowl and garnish with chopped basil. Enjoy your delicious tomato basil soup.
