Welcome to my Ultimate Mediterranean Vegetable Soup in the soup maker.
I love vegetable soup and I also love the flavours of the Mediterranean. Living in Portugal food is very similar to what you would expect in France, Spain & Italy.
The importance is always put on fresh vegetables, tomato sauces, wine and plenty of carbs.
This recipe is based on my love for everything local and how the flavours of our local culture come together.
We love nothing more than going to our local market and picking our favourite vegetables and then planning our soup around it.
Though my Mediterranean vegetable soup is about throwing in a bit of everything and letting the vegetables do the hard work.
I am also not a huge fan of chunky soup but this is an exception to the rules.
We have this style soup at least twice a month (if not more) and it is something that not only us, but our kids love too.
It is also a great winter warmer and if like me you love your bread, then dip some in or place big chunks of bread into your soup just before you serve it.

- Add the tinned tomatoes and if there is not much water in them dilute them a little bit.
- Add the water and seasoning too.
- Cook on a basic soup setting for 25 minutes without blending so that you have tasty chunky soup.

How big is your soup maker? I used the less than the suggested quantities as I thought it seemed too much for 4 portions but it was still twice as much as my soup maker would fit for 4 persons. Anyway, the flavour was good. I added a bit of pesto into the serving bowl and that was a nice addition. The veg weren’t soft enough after the 30 min programme on n’y soup maker so I had to do for another 15 mins.
We are using the Ninja hot and cold blender,1.7l capacity. The chunks might be as soft as you would like as it depends on the size of the chunks and how hot your soup maker gets, this recipe is now 6 years old so we are going to look into updating it 🙂
