Spicy Tomato Soup (In A Soup Maker)

I love making tomato soup, it’s a classic soup that is simple to cook in a soup maker, and it’s also easy to change up the flavour by making it spicy!

Soup maker spicy tomato soup is a deliciously comforting soup that delivers the perfect amount of heat.

This recipe pretty much uses the same ingredients as a classic tomato soup, but with the addition of a red chilli and some curry powder.

What You Need:

ingredients laid out for tomato soup: 5 on the vine tomatoes, 1 red chilli, potato, onion, 2 cloves of garlic and 1 tsp curry powder
  • Fresh tomatoes: I like to use tomatoes on the vine or plum tomatoes as I find they have more flavour, but you can use tinned tomatoes. It’s fine to leave the skin on fresh tomatoes – I just wash and quarter them. If you have time, try roasting the tomatoes for a more intense flavour!
  • Red chilli: I used one, sliced, seeds in
  • Onion
  • Curry powder and garlic powder: I used 1 tsp of medium curry powder, you could use more according to taste. I also used 1 tsp of garlic powder,
  • Potato: adding a potato to the soup is optional, I added it to create a thicker soup. You can leave it out for a thinner soup, or add in more tomatoes. The potato I used weighed around 200g.
  • Stock: I used a vegetable stock pot and hot water up to the line.

How To Make Spicy Tomato Soup In A Soup Maker

Prepare the ingredients by washing and chopping the tomatoes, chilli and potato. Peel and chop the onion.

Add all the ingredients to the soup maker. You can make the stock up seperately outside of the soup maker, or as I do, add the stock pot directly on top of the ingredients and then pour hot water up to the line.

Using A Soup Maker

If this isn’t your first visit to Liana’s Kitchen, you’ll know that I love my soup maker! I make the majority of my soups in it these days – I do occasionally use a slow cooker or pressure cooker, but for convenience and speed, the soup maker wins hands down.

I ended up with so many soup maker recipes that I have created two soup maker books. The digital one below is my latest with over 150 recipes.

Making It In A Pot

You can make this same recipe in a pot on the stove and follow the same steps to prepare the soup, but instead of setting it off on smooth, you’ll be bringing it to the boil and then leaving it to simmer for about 20 minutes, until the tomatoes are soft.

You can then decide whether to leave it chunky or blend it up for a smooth soup. If you choose to turn it into a smooth soup, you will need to use a hand blender – or leave it to cool and transfer it to a jug blender.

How To Make This Soup Thicker or Thinner

With these quantities, I think this soup is the perfect consistency. If you prefer thicker soups, add in more tomatoes, more chopped potato, or some red lentils before setting it off. If you want a thin soup, leave out the potato.

How To Avoid Burning

Some soup makers suffer from burning in the base – this is usually down to not enough stock being used, especially when a tomato-based ingredient is included. Make sure you use enough stock and that any tomatoes aren’t resting directly on the base of the soup maker.
