Soup Maker Tomato And Red Pepper Soup. Loaded with fresh basil, fresh tomatoes, red pepper and tinned tomatoes, this is a delicious easy creamy tomato soup made in the Morphy Richards Soup Maker. This soup maker tomato and red pepper soup is also Slimming World friendly too.
Our Soup Maker Tomato And Red Pepper Soup is an update based on the Slimming World tomato soup we originally published in January of 2016. We hope you enjoy our updated version.
Soup Maker Tomato + Red Pepper Soup
The title for this red tomato and red pepper soup has come about for all the years that I have enjoyed watching Ready, Steady, Cook. I used to love that cookery show.
It was before Masterchef became popular and it was always on television when I came home from school and I would have my dinner while watching it.
It had two celebrity chefs and they had twenty minutes to cook a recipe based on the ingredients that a guest had brought in with them.
It used to amaze me how good the food looked when it just took 20 minutes to make and kind of encouraged cooking from scratch for dinner.
One team was peppers and the other was tomatoes and it always made me want to eat lots of tomatoes and peppers.
Ironically, as a kid my mum often served me tomato soup for dinner while I was watching it!
Some delicious on the vine red tomatoes and some red peppers make a fantastic combination for a healthy soup maker soup and because peppers are so sweet it gives a lovely balance of flavours.
Then add in carrots for the creamy tomato factor and some tinned tomatoes for flavour and you’re in soup maker tomato and red pepper soup heaven!
If you have not used a soup maker yet to make tomato soup, then this red pepper and basil version is a wonderful starting point.
Soup Maker Tomato Soup With Tinned Tomatoes
One of my BIGGEST complaints about making soup maker tomato soup is that the soup maker is so small, and you lack space to make a lot of soup with. So, what I do is add in some extra tinned tomatoes at the end of cooking.
The tinned tomatoes are already cooked, and you can stir them in and even better because the tinned tomatoes are cold, they help cool the soup a little.
As there is nothing worse than wanting to eat your favourite soup maker tomato soup and ther soup burning your tongue.
Soup Maker Tomato And Basil Soup
I love fresh basil and it tastes so good when you cook it in a soup maker tomato soup.
What I tend to do is grab some fresh basil from the kitchen windowsill and then give it a quick wash and then add it into my tomato and red pepper soup at the end.
Then it will be blended with the creamy tomato soup. It tastes so much better this way and you can really taste the flavour of the fresh basil.
Different Sized Soup Makers
In an ideal world the Morphy Richards Soup Maker would be big enough for a big batch of my favourite soup maker tomato and red pepper soup.
But sadly, it isn’t. When you look at the soup kettle you’re probably thinking that it is HUGE until you see the max line and how big the huge blade is.
If this is also YOU then note that by adding cooked ingredients last, you can squeeze that little bit extra of space your way.
Though you might be lucky and have a much bigger soup maker than us. If that is you then just adjust the servings to suit the size of your soup maker.
How To Make Tomato & Red Pepper Soup In The Soup Maker?
It is so easy to make tomato and red pepper soup in the soup maker. Its one of my favourite soup maker soups for ease of use and it tastes rather good too.
- Start by prepping your ingredients. Peel anything that needs peeling, dice anything that you need to dice and load it all into the soup maker.
- Push it. With the Morphy Richards Soup Maker being so small you need to make sure you can push down the blade so that the lid fits on it well.
- Load it up. Add the rest of your ingredients, including the water and place the lid on your soup maker. Blend and add in extra tinned tomatoes when it beeps.
Soup Maker Tomato And Red Pepper Soup With Basil
- Peel and dice the garlic, onion and carrot. Wash the fresh basil. Remove the cores and cube the fresh tomatoes.
- Load everything apart from the fresh basil and the tinned tomatoes into the soup maker. Add 250ml of cold water.
- Place the lid on the soup maker and cook for 28 minutes on the chunky soup setting.
- Stir when it beeps, add in the basil and tinned tomatoes and blend.
