Nanas Magic Soup
I have been asked many times over the years to make a version of nanas magic soup from Tesco’s using the soup maker and it made it to the top of our to do list and I have to say I am loving nanas magic soup via the soup maker.
The concept of the magic soup (if you are not aware of it) is a comforting, immune boosting soup that would be similar to what your grandma would make you when you were full of cold or flu and feeling under the weather.
When I was growing up, I always remember that my aunt was the one in the family that made the best comfort food and the best toasties to go with the soup. It was just so nice to dunk the toasties into the soup and you always felt like you were being well taken care of.
Today, I will be sharing with you, what nanas magic soup is, how to make nanas magic soup slimming world or weight watchers friendly vs the original, our recipe for magic soup, what to do with your leftover soup and so much more.

What Is Nanas Magic Soup?
Nanas magic soup is like a hearty version of a cream of tomato soup. The main magic soup ingredients include olive oil, carrots, tomatoes, onion, sweet potato, peppers, stock, and coconut milk.
It tastes like a cream of tomato soup but feels heartier because you have the carbs from the sweet potato and the carrots that do a grand job of thickening up the soup.
Or just think of it like grandma’s homemade vegetable soup.
Is It Nanas Magic Soup Or Granny’s Soup?
I love it how we all have a different word for our grandma.
Whilst one of you might call these nanas magic soup, others might call it grannys soup, nans magic soup, or grandma’s homemade vegetable soup.
For me mine were always grandma.
Can You Make Nanas Magic Soup In A Soup Maker?
Yes, you can make nanas magic soup in the soup maker. You can also mix and match the ingredients depending on what you like in the soup and this makes a good portion, so you can freeze your leftover soup.
Can You Make Nanas Soup Slimming World Friendly?
Yes, you can make nanas soup Slimming World friendly or Weight Watchers friendly or reduce the fat.
For example, you don’t need olive oil to make soup in the soup maker. We also didn’t use any coconut milk in this recipe.
Instead, which fits in better for us, is we used some of our leftover mashed potatoes instead to thicken the soup.
How Do You Make Soup?
To make soup in the soup maker is easy. You simply load the soup ingredients into the soup maker and then the soup maker, boils, and mixes at the same time to produce perfect soup.
You can then choose between a thick smooth soup or a chunky soup. You will find most of our soup maker recipes are smooth rather than chunky.
Should You Skin Tomatoes For Soup?
We don’t skin tomatoes for soup, even though I know some that do. When you make a tomato-based soup in the soup maker as it blends it gets rid of the skin so has a smooth texture. If you do prefer to skin, then follow our instant pot tomatoes recipe.

Nanas Magic Soup Ingredients
Tomatoes – We recommend adding tinned tomatoes in this magic soup, though you can swap it for some fresh tomatoes, if you have some that need using up.
Potato – We also recommend adding to your grannys soup some sweet potato and some leftover mash. Both the sweet potato and the white potato mash help thicken the soup and make it really hearty and shout out comfort food.
Veggies – Then for extra veggies in nans magic soup we added carrots and red pepper. We also added some onion and garlic.
Stock – We also keep extra veggie stock in our freezer and we defrosted this and used it for stock of our soup.
Seasonings – For seasonings, we are keeping this nanas magic soup really easy and adding salt, pepper, and mixed herbs.

How To Make Nana Magic Soup In A Soup Maker?
- Prep. Start by peeling and dicing your sweet potato and carrots. Then deseed and chop the red pepper.
- Load. Add the soup maker ingredients into the soup maker in any order.
- Cook. Then once your soup maker is loaded up with your magic soup ingredients, set it to the smooth soup setting and cook it for 25 minutes.
- Finish. Then when it beeps, serve the nana magic soup with heart shaped grilled cheese.
What About The Grilled Cheese?
So, we have talked about the magic soup recipe BUT what about the grilled cheese hearts that are served with it?
Well, what we did is, when the soup maker only had five minutes left, we started the air fryer grilled cheese and followed our usual air fryer recipe. Then once the grilled cheese was made, we used a heart cutter to make some hearts and then put them into the soup, creating a classic tomato soup and grilled cheese combo.
You can do the same or do any shape that you have – it doesn’t have to be a heart, but I think grandmas love needs a heart!
Can You Freeze Tomato Soup?
Yes, you can freeze tomato soup and any other soup you make in the soup maker. What I prefer is the Pyrex glass bottom containers with the plastic lids (like these ones) as they are perfect for when you have too much soup and then you can freeze your leftovers. Then of course, leftover soup reheats perfectly in the microwave.
