Capsaicin is responsible for giving chillies their heat – and its benefits aren’t reduced when cooked. Apparently, most of the capsaicin is found in the membrane of the chilli (where the seeds connect to the flesh of the chilli) so try to include the whole chilli, with the exception of the green stalk.

IMPORTANT: I used 1 whole red chilli in this recipe and kept the seeds in too. If you want a milder taste leave the seeds out.

Making Red Pepper and Chilli Soup In A Soup Maker

I have made this recipe in a Morphy Richards soup maker as well as a Ninja Soup Maker. The same recipe will work in all soup makers, but if you have the compact version of a Morphy Richards you will need to reduce the quantities.

What You Need:

2 red peppers, 2 cloves garlic, 1 onion, 1 potato and 1 fresh red chilli ready to make a red pepper and chilli soup in a soup maker
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 red peppers, chopped
  • 1 potato, chopped
  • 1 fresh red chilli
  • 750ml vegetable stock (approx)

Prepare the ingredients by washing and chopping the peppers, potato, red chilli (take care when handling), chopping the onion and crushing the garlic cloves.

There is no need to peel the potato, just give it a good clean first. The potato has been added to thicken the soup, add more potato if you prefer a thicker soup. You can substitute the potato for red lentils if you prefer.

I’ve made this a few times now, it’s my new favourite soup! I love the kick of the chilli and it tastes extra good after a long dog walk in the rain. My soup maker doesn’t have a sauté function, so I’ve made this by just putting all the ingredients into the maker, and also have sautéed in a pan first as per the recipe. Sautéing gives a much richer flavour I think, so definitely worth that extra step (and washing up!) if you don’t have a sauté function om your soup maker.

Delish 🤤

Hi there, if I don’t have a soup maker and want it to be just a bit more blended how long would I wait before processing it?

Hi Liam - are you using a hand held blender (stick blender) to blend it or transferring all of it to a standalone blender/smoothie maker? The reason I ask is you should wait for the soup to cool down a little before blending it in a standalone blender as it will be too hot (but double check the manufacturer's guidelines). If it's a stick (small handheld blender) just give the cooked mixture a a few quick pulses with the blender, that should be enough to give you an 'in between' consistency between chunky and smooth.

I hope that makes sense - if I've completely misunderstood your question please do let me know!

Is it necessary to saute the ingredients first or can they go straight in the soup machine?

Hi Evelyn - they can go straight in the soup maker if you prefer. Let me know how you get on!
