Soup Maker Lentil Soup
This soup maker lentil soup was originally published on Recipe This in the January of 2016. It has been updated with new photos, different lentils and lots of new info. We hope you like the updated version and are excited about making lentil soup in your soup maker.
This is what I had to say back in January 2016 when I originally showed you how to make a lentil soup in the Cuisinart Soup Maker, though I have updated it today to make it in my Morphy Richards Soup Maker:
Welcome to my ultimate vegan lentil soup in the soup maker.
A lot of people will not know that I was a vegetarian as a child. I lived a meat free life from the age of 8 up until being about 15.
I remember seeing a dead pig hanging down from the back of a butcher’s lorry and thinking it was the most awful thing in the world and that I no longer wanted to eat meat.
My only issue was that I was allergic to mushrooms and nuts meaning that eating out was a total nightmare.
Just think of the vegetarian options on menus….I would see mushroom stroganoff or a nut roast as the food of choice.
This would mean that I was often out eating either a jacket potato or chips and gravy.
I loved trips to the Indian restaurant because I would be in food heaven. We could have a mixed starter of different vegetables in tikka flavourings, followed by vegetable curry (made with lentils) and then it would be washed down with a Malibu & Coke.
But I always remember that to be able to get a mix in my diet when I was a vegetarian there would always be the need for lentils and I wanted to go back to my vegetarian roots with this delicious lentil soup in the soup maker.
Or for those of you out there that are vegans or follow the plant based diet you can enjoy this too as it is completely dairy free!

Different Sized Soup Makers
This soup maker tomato and lentil soup is made with our Morphy Richards Soup Maker. It is rather small compared to some soup makers.
If you are working with a small soup maker, like we are, then I would recommend dicing the tomatoes fairly small, so that all ingredients can fit in.
Or even better, cook our soup maker red lentil soup in the instant pot and make a HUGE batch.

I have made both red lentil soup maker soup with fresh and tinned tomatoes. Both work incredibly well and it is okay if you just have tinned tomatoes available.
Though if you use fresh tomatoes, do season them with sea salt prior to cooking them in the soup maker.
You can also swap red lentils for green lentils or brown lentils if you prefer. This is the brand of red lentils that we used. We have a HUGE bag of them, and they are perfect for a range of soup maker recipes.
