Lazy Soup

This year I treated myself to a soup maker and it really has made a difference to my diet.

I always used to make soup in a pan and then transfer it to a blender blah, blah, blah.  But now I have this beauty and soup making isn't a chore anymore.
I used a casserole pack of veg, salt & pepper, a vegetable stock cube, some herbs and some water:
I filled the soup maker to the first line with the veg:
Added seasoning, herbs and stock cube:
Filled it to the second line with water;
And switched it on.  As you can see, it has settings for smooth, chunky and juice:
Just a mere 21 minutes later I had lovely, tasty, fresh soup.  It makes enough for 3 big bowl fulls:
Less mess and a lot less washing up.  Of course you don't have to be as lazy as me, you could prep your own veg and not buy ready done :)

If you've been thinking about getting a soup maker then I would highly recommend it.

Happy Halloween - me and Maddie will be watching Hocus Pocus tonight :)

Thanks for stopping by

twenty minutes? that's brilliant. It sounds like a soupmaker would certainly be worth thinking about at that rate

How funny, i was looking at one the other day and decided against it. You have me thinking that i need to buy it now. I love soup...but it can be time consuming to make..this sounds perfect x

Good to see it's not one of those kitchen gadgets that gets relegated to the cupboard after a couple of uses. Soup is one of my favourite things to make so I wouldn't want something that did it for me!

This sounds perfect Jo. I can imagine you'll come up with loads of great recipes

That looks really good and what a good idea to use ready prepped veg. Might give this one a go!

Just wanted to add thank you so much for this post. We bought the soup maker this morning and enjoyed butternut squash soup at lunchtime. Bought it ready prepared - so easy! Great recommendation, really happy!
