I decided it was about time I collated all my top soup maker recipes in one post!
Soup makers continue to grow in popularity and show no sign of slowing down.
Before I got my soup maker, I wondered whether it would be one of those gimmicky marketing ploys to get me to part with my money.
But I was wrong. I have had my soup maker (and tested various others, too) for well over five years, and it is in constant use. Yes, even in the summer months!
Below is a collection of some of those soup maker recipes and more that aren’t in my book.
If you have any questions about using your soup maker or want advice before purchasing one, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Top Soup Maker Recipes (Ninja Soup Maker, Morphy Richards)
Tomato and basil soup is a classic that is easy to make in a soup maker. Use either fresh or tinned tomatoes, with no need to peel the skin – add in some fragrant fresh basil leaves and you’ll be enjoying this easy recipe in under 30 minutes.
A steaming bowl of leek and potato soup is the perfect comfort food on a cold winter day. This hearty soup is packed with flavour and easy to make.
Simply add chopped leeks and potatoes with some chicken or vegetable stock and water. Season with salt and pepper, then let the soup maker work its magic.
For an extra touch of flavour, stir in some shredded cheese or chopped fresh herbs. Serve with a crusty baguette for a delicious meal that will warm you from the inside out.
Red pepper and chilli soup is a deliciously warming recipe with a spicy kick. It’s quick and easy to make in a soup maker, requiring very little preparation.
The great thing about this soup is that you can make it as hot as you like. If you want a mildly spicy soup, just add one deseeded chilli pepper; fancy it a bit hotter? Add one or two seeded peppers to really feel the heat!
This apple and parsnip soup is a delicious and easy to make favourite. The sweetness from the parsnip, combined with the tartness of the apples, makes this soup feel like a real treat, especially with the added cinnamon.
This soup is also incredibly versatile – you can swap out the parsnips for carrots or even sweet potatoes and use any type of apple you like.
Sweet potato and red chilli soup is packed with flavour, with the combination of the sweetness of the sweet potato balancing out the heat of the red chillies.
Best of all, there is no need to peel the sweet potatoes, just give them a good clean and chop them up. A good soup maker will blend the skin up lovely and smooth – just think of all that extra goodness!
Carrot and Coriander Soup is one of the nation’s favourite soups – and with good reason! I love carrot soup anyway, but adding some fresh coriander at the end enhances the flavour.
If you want to make the soup creamier, you can stir in some cream or natural yoghurt at the end.
If you’re a fan of butternut squash soup, then you’ll be happy to know that it’s easy to make in a soup maker. Simply add all of the ingredients to the soup maker and let it do its work. In no time at all, you’ll have a fantastic soup that’s perfect for a chilly day.
This bolognese pasta soup is ideal if you’re searching for a filling soup. Either cook the mince in the soup maker (Ninja Soup Makers only) or saute some in a separate pan. This soup is also great for using up any leftover bolognese.
9. Chicken Soup
Chicken soup is one of the classics, and it’s super easy to make in a soup maker. If you have a Ninja Soup Maker, you can cook the meat from raw, or if you have a different model of soup maker, you can add cooked chicken – perfect for using up leftover chicken from the Sunday Roast!
Another one of my favourites is curried parsnip soup. The combination of sweet and savoury flavours is simply irresistible, and the addition of curry powder gives the soup a real kick.
Add chopped parsnips, carrots, curry powder and some vegetable stock. For a final touch, stir in some cream and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve piping hot with crusty bread for a truly satisfying meal.
Black beans are a handy standby to have in the cupboard for various meals. They work well in stews as well as soups. I like to add some sweet potatoes alongside some spices to really add some sweet warmth to this soup.
This Mexican-inspired tortilla soup is a flavourful recipe that is perfect for a chilly winter day. The soup contains various ingredients, including tomatoes, onions, garlic, and chilli peppers. The soup is typically served with tortilla chips, sour cream, and cheese.
You can use different types of chilli peppers to adjust the spice level or add more vegetables or meat if you want a heartier soup.
13. Spicy Bean Soup
This spicy bean soup is perfect for filling up on a chilly day. Make it in a soup maker on a chunky or smooth setting using your favourite beans or a combination of a few varieties.
This Spanish potato soup recipe is based on one of my favourite Spanish dishes, patatas bravas.
I’ve adapted it to be made as a soup in a soup maker, with all the tastes you’d expect with fresh peppers, chillies, paprika and, of course, potatoes.
A perfect Christmas soup, cranberry and apple is easy to make, and the tart cranberry flavour perfectly matches the apples.
I like to use Granny Smith or Gala apples, but you can use any apple that you have on hand.
Serve the soup chilled or hot, topped with a dollop of cream or yoghurt.
There’s nothing quite like a steaming bowl of chicken soup on a cold winter day. This particular recipe features the classic combination of chicken and tarragon, enhanced by adding garlic, onion and some cream.
This soup is hearty enough to be a meal on its own, but it also pairs well with a crusty piece of bread.
This spiced root vegetable soup is the perfect way to warm up. It’s packed with nutrients, and the curried spices give a different twist to a traditional vegetable soup.
This carrot and ginger soup is the perfect antidote to winter weather. The soup is made with simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen.
Carrots, ginger, garlic and onion combine to create a warming soup. The carrots provide sweetness, and the ginger gives a little bit of heat.
Chicken noodle soup is one of the most comforting foods imaginable. It’s warm, it’s savoury, and it just seems to hit the spot when you’re feeling under the weather.
Fortunately, it’s also pretty easy to make at home. You only need chicken, some noodles, and a few basic seasonings.
Chicken noodle soup is filling, making it ideal for a substantial lunchtime meal.
Smoky bacon and nutrient-rich lentils combine to create a satisfying soup. Best of all, this soup is easy to make and can be ready in half an hour.
And there’s no need to soak split red lentils before cooking them; simply give them a good wash to rine them and add them to the soup maker with the rest of the ingredients.
Turn one of the nation’s favourite takeaways into a delicious soup. With just a few ingredients and the help of a soup maker, you can enjoy a full of flavour chicken tikka masala soup.
This butter bean and lentil soup is a healthy, hearty option that will warm you up from the inside out. Plus, it’s easy to make in a soup maker and doesn’t require any fancy ingredients.
Having a handy standby collection of tins in the cupboards is always useful. It means that you can put some of them together, with some stock, and make a filling and nutritious soup.
One of my favourite soups is ham and potato. It’s hearty and filling but not too heavy. And it’s the perfect way to use up leftover ham.
Add in some of your favourite herbs – thyme works well with this soup – and grab a slice of crusty French bread to dunk in.
Thai Red Curry Soup is a relatively simple dish to make, and it’s packed full of flavour. Add some noodles to make a substantial lunchtime meal.
The great thing about this soup is that you can adjust the level of spice to suit your taste. If you like your food on the milder side, simply use less curry paste. If you’re looking for something with a bit more kick, feel free to add an extra chilli or two.
Jamaican jerk sweet potato soup is full of flavour, with the sweet potatoes providing a sweetness that is balanced by the spice of the jerk seasoning. The soup is also very easy to make; simply add the prepared ingredients to your soup maker and press the smooth button!
Cauliflower cheese soup is usually thick and creamy, and the flavour of the cheese is often the dominant taste.
Cauliflower can vary in taste depending on how it is cooked, but it is generally mild and slightly nutty. When combined with cheese, the soup has a rich and savoury flavour.
The cheeses most commonly used in cauliflower cheese soup are cheddar and Gruyere, although other types of cheese can also be used.
Cauliflower cheese soup can be served with croutons or bread, and it is often garnished with chopped chives or bacon bits.
27. Tomato Soup
Tomato soup is another classic that is really easy to make in a soup maker. Use fresh tomatoes – on the vine work best – or, if you don’t have any, tinned tomatoes will work too.
The great thing about making tomato soup in a soup maker is that you don’t need to remove the skin from the tomatoes, just chop them up and add them to the soup maker jug; the soup will come out velvety smooth!
This curried soup is a take on the popular Indian side dish, Bombay potato. You can make it in the soup maker using the smooth or chunky cycle.
The main ingredients in a Bombay potato soup include potatoes, tomatoes, spices and garlic.
29. Asparagus Soup
Asparagus is one of those vegetables that can be prepared and cooked in many different ways.
Most soup makers are powerful enough to blend the asparagus into a velvety smooth soup. Save some asparagus tips to garnish the soup before serving.
Optionally turn it into a cream of asparagus soup by stirring in some single or double cream at the end.
30. Cabbage Soup
Cabbage soup is packed with veggies like cabbage, carrots, and celery, getting its flavour from a combination of stock and seasonings like garlic, onion, and thyme. Best of all, it only takes about 30 minutes to make!
Brussels sprout soup is a delicious and healthy way to enjoy this winter vegetable. The main ingredients include brussels sprouts, onion, garlic and stock, but you can add some variations such as bacon, celery, and nutmeg or stir in some grated cheese at the end.
Carrot and sweet potato soup is made from just a handful of ingredients. The sweet potato ensures this soup comes out velvety smooth – and the combination with carrots produces a tasty, filling and nutritious meal.
33. Vegetable Soup
Vegetable soup is the perfect way to be well on the way to your five a day. It’s also a great way to use up any vegetables to save them from going to waste.
Any basic vegetable soup recipe can be adapted according to your available ingredients.
This easy chicken soup recipe is perfect for using any leftover chicken from a roast dinner.
Add the shredded cooked chicken together with some potatoes, onions, garlic and herbs of your choice and set it off on smooth.
Similar to my broccoli and cheddar soup, this recipe requires very few ingredients and is a handy way to use up any extra Christmas cheese you might have hanging about!
Broccoli and Stilton soup is also a perfect starter to serve before a festive dinner.
Carrot and orange soup is another ideal festive soup. The combination of carrots and oranges with some mixed spices turns this into a warming soup with a festive spin.
Spiced carrot soup is a great alternative to other carrot soup recipes, delivering a deliciously spicy kick!
A great way to vary a soup’s flavour is to add some spice! I like to add in some curry powder to turn it into a ‘curried soup.’
If you’re looking for a quick and nutritious soup to make, broccoli and cheddar soup is a perfect choice.
Maybe it’s the fact that it’s a green soup, but it definitely makes me feel like I’m filling myself up with lots of goodness.
Melting some cheese into it at the end makes it super delicious too!
Spicy tomato soup is a deliciously comforting soup that delivers the perfect amount of heat. It’s quick and easy to make, especially if you use a soup maker!

42. Celery Soup
Celery is a bit of an acquired taste. If you don’t usually enjoy it, I recommend you try it as a soup – it tastes amazing and is completely different from other cooking methods!
This simple chicken and chorizo soup recipe is full of flavour, but it’s not too spicy. The combination of onion, garlic, tomatoes, and paprika goes perfectly with the chicken and chorizo.
Adding a little curry powder to a regular soup recipe can make all the difference. This curried lentil soup is a spicy twist on my tomato and lentil soup.
