Tasty Soup Maker Vegetable Soup Made Easy

Soup maker vegetable soup is the perfect way to be well on the way to your 5 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 what you have available.

Oh, and it’s also a cunning way to sneak in any vegetables the kids would usually turn their noses up at! Just make sure you blend the soup to a smooth consistency, and they’ll be none the wiser 😉

How To Make Vegetable Soup In A Soup Maker

I rarely stick to the same ingredients when making homemade vegetable soup. This is because I usually make it when I have a variety of vegetables I need to use up.

What You Need For Soup Maker Vegetable Soup

A good base for any vegetable soup is onion, garlic, carrots, and potatoes, but really, you can throw in whatever you want; celery is usually a good addition.

The vegetable soup I made for this recipe only had these ingredients, and it went down a treat.

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed or sliced
  • 800g mix of potatoes, carrots, parsnips and celery
  • 1 vegetable stock pot + hot water up to the MAX line of the soup maker
  • Optional herbs (1 tsp. dried mixed herbs are a good addition)
  • Seasoning according to taste

What Vegetables Should I Use For This Soup?

As mentioned above, you can use any vegetables you have available. Their combined weight should be around 600g to 800g, depending on how you prefer the consistency of your soup.

Some vegetable options could include carrots, parsnips, celery, leeks, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, broccoli, and potatoes.

Making The Vegetable Soup

Prepare all the ingredients you are using for the soup. There is no need to peel the vegetables; just give them a good wash and chop them up to roughly the same size where possible.

Add everything to the soup maker. I prefer to add the stock pot directly to the soup maker and then pour the water in at the end.

Once you have added everything to the soup maker, put the lid on top and set the soup maker off.

Vegetable Soup: Smooth vs Chunky

This really comes down to personal taste and preference. With vegetable soup, I usually opt to blend it and get it nice and smooth (which is very easy to do in a soup maker!)

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, soup is a great way to increase and consume a wider variety of vegetables.

Having said that, chunky vegetable soup is equally tasty and serves a purpose if you like the texture and ‘chew’ of more solids in your soup.

A happy medium could be to partially blend your soup, whether this is with a hand blender (if cooking in a pot) or by using the manual blend button on a soup maker after cooking it on the chunky setting.

One thing to note, though, is that if you are making a chunky soup, make sure you use a flavorful stock or be prepared to add more seasoning to stop it from tasting too bland.

Which Soup Maker Is Best For Making Vegetable Soup?

I have made vegetable soup in various different soup maker models over the years. I have found the Ninja soup maker produces the smoothest soups, but the Morphy Richards range of soup makers also makes great vegetable soup.

Top Tips For Making Vegetable Soup In A Soup Maker

  • As previously mentioned, the best vegetable soup is made with the ingredients you already have. It’s the perfect way to use up vegetables!
  • Aim for a collective weight of around 600–800 g, depending on the size of your pot or soup maker.
  • Chop the vegetables up fairly small, especially the potatoes. There is no need to peel your vegetables; give them a good scrub. The soup maker will blend them up so smoothly that you won’t notice the skin, yet you still get all the benefits!
  • You can use vegetable stock or chicken stock. For maximum flavour, go for a stock pot or fresh stock.
  • If the soup tastes bland, add your favourite seasoning—one of my current favourites is dried chilli flakes.

How To Store Vegetable Soup

If you have some vegetable soup leftover, you can store it in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days. You can also freeze vegetable soup. Transfer it to a suitable soup freezer container when it has cooled down. I like these ones from Amazon.

I love this sort of vegetable soup - I like to add a good dessertsp. of red lentils to the mix. And butternut squash if I’ve got some to hand.

Hi Just make my 1st veg soup in my compact Morphy Richards soup maker, I followed the instructions to the letter but the veg was still hard. Can you help. Kind regards

Hi Katherine - there could be a number of reasons (assuming your soup maker isn't faulty, which hopefully it isn't!)

Did you scale this recipe down to fit in a Compact Morphy Richards? It could be that you had too many vegetables in there and not enough stock/water to boil them soft enough. Or, how small did you chop the vegetables up? Some vegetables take longer to cook than others and so should be cut smaller. Did you use hot stock?

Hope that helps, if not, please feel free to ask!

What’s the best ingredient to thicken vegetable love all the recipes have made so many soups

Liana Green

Hi June - do you mean thicken a smooth or chunky soup? If chunky you can give it a quick pulse/blend at the end - it will thicken it up but still leave it with texture - if a smooth soup you can just add in extra ingredients at the beginning - you can check this post out for more tips
