Tomato & Basil Soup (In A Soup Maker)

Tomato and Basil soup is a popular classic. It is so easy to make – either in a soup maker or in a pot on the stove, blending once cooked.

Some people prefer to remove the skin from tomatoes before souping them, but I don’t find it necessary when using a soup maker. The motor is so powerful that it blends the soup until it is completely smooth, and doesn’t have any bits of skin left.

If you don’t have any shallots, 1 onion will be perfectly fine too.

Since buying my Morphy Richards Soup Maker I have used it several times a week. Some weeks, every single day. I have been experimenting with many different recipes – mainly to put in my soup maker recipe book – but it’s also the perfect excuse to have soup almost every day!

I’m going to make your tomato and basil soup. I worry that the Morphy Richard’s says minimum of level is 1300 mls can I do less as it comes out so watery?

Hi Lizzie - I would stick to the minimum level of ingredients but just add in more ingredients to make it thicker - either add in a potato, some red lentils or increase the amount of tomatoes. I hope that helps!

i am a bit confused to when i need to ut the 8 x bail leaves in to the soup, as it says to add all the ingredients except the basil.
