Lentil Soup

I have a lot of different soup maker recipes here on Recipe This. But did you know which one is my favourite above all others?

You guessed right it is lentil soup.

Yet as a kid, like most fussy kids I thought that lentils were disgusting and something that looked like rabbit food.

Now fast forward to age 41 and I would eat lentils everyday given the chance.

Beyond this delicious lentil soup, I love to cook lentils in the instant pot such as instant pot green lentils and then use those just cooked lentils in our air fryer vegan lentil burgers.

But if you are there with a fussy kid reading this (my daughter looks at them with suspicion too), then red lentils are the way to go.

That is because when you make red lentils soup the lentils dissolve into the soup, so your kids will never know! So just tell them its cream of tomato soup!

Today, I will be sharing with you, lentil soup ingredients, soup maker lentil soup, how much lentils for soup and so much more.

If you fancy some more lentil ideas do try instant pot lentil curry, instant pot sausage and lentil casserole, instant pot red thai curry soup.

Can You Make Lentil Soup In A Soup Maker?

Yes, you can make lentil soup in a soup maker. Simply load the soup maker up with your soup ingredients and it will do the hard work for you.

The red lentils work very well in the soup maker and create a delicious thick soup that will fill you up for hours.

Should Lentils Be Soaked Before Making Soup?

If you’re making a green lentil soup you will need to soak the lentils first, or cook them in the instant pot which speeds it up (instant pot green lentils recipe here). Though with red lentils, like we are making today in this easy lentil soup, they dissolve as the soup cooks in the soup maker, making it much easier and faster.  

How Much Lentils For Soup?

When making soup with red lentils we recommend 100g of dried red lentils which is about ½ cup of red lentils, to make a good portion of lentil soup.

Remember, lentils expand and like making our air fryer popcorn, you can be surprised at the quantities.

Is A Soup Maker Healthy?

Yes, a soup maker is healthy and you will love it. The soup makers make delicious healthy soups that you can cook regardless of the season. We love this lentil soup recipe for when we have lots of tomatoes in that need using up and always have some spare red lentils in.

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 have a bigger soup maker such as the Ninja Soup Maker or the Cuisinart Soup Maker, you can double the recipe ingredients and easily make enough for four people.

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.

Lentil Soup Ingredients

Lentil Soup Ingredients

Lentils – Lets start with the lentils. We used some dried red lentils and we recommend just 100g which is half a cup. They expand so much in a soup recipe, so you don’t want to add too many.

Tomatoes – We used 6 salad size tomatoes and found that this was plenty. Plus, the juices from the tomatoes help with the red lentils with lentils being so thick.

Veggies – Then for extra veggies we recommend also adding an onion, and some carrots. Then for extra flavour we also added in some garlic.

Stock – I recommend some veggie stock to make your basic lentil soup recipe taste more flavoursome. We make our own instant pot veggie stock and then freeze it for soups and stews.

Seasonings – For seasonings, we are keeping this recipe for lentil soup really easy and adding salt, pepper, coriander leaf (cilantro), sweet paprika and are also adding the coconut lime seasoning from M&S.

You can mix and match your seasonings, for example in our soup maker lentil soup video we used a Thai spice mix from Aldi.

Then for the kitchen gadgets that we have used in this tomato and lentil soup for then soup maker it has just been our Ninja Soup Maker. We have this one and its wonderful for many types of soup maker recipes.

Plus, we recommend you head over to our soup maker recipes category as we have more than 50 tried and tested soup maker recipes and have been using soup machines for 7 years.

How To Make Lentil Soup In A Soup Maker?

  • Juice. Chop the tomatoes into quarters and load them into the soup maker first. The juices from these will stop the lentils from sticking in your soup maker.
  • Load. Next add in everything else including the lentils and the seasonings.  
  • Cook. Then once your soup maker is loaded up with your soup ingredients, set it to the smooth soup setting and cook it for 25 minutes.
  • Finish. Then when it beeps, if it is too thick add a little milk (coconut if vegan) before serving.

And I am sure you can see now how easy it is to make lentil soup in soup maker.

How Long To Cook Lentil Soup?

A bit of soup maker trivia for you. The soup makers all have different cook times on them with their chunky and smooth soup settings. Morphy Richards is 28 minutes and the Ninja soup maker we are using is 30 minutes.

This lentil soup in the soup maker needs just 25 minutes so you can cancel the cook if you are bored of waiting or just wait for the 30 minutes to be up.

What To Serve With Soup Maker Lentil Soup

Now you have your soup maker lentil soup recipe, I am sure you are curious of what to serve with it.

Well, my first choice is some potatoes. What I will do is make some cubed potatoes that will have a similar texture to mini roast potatoes. Then they will be crispy and yummy and served over the homemade lentil soup. You can follow our air fryer garlic potatoes to do the same.

Or if you want bread rolls to dunk in your lentil soup, nothing beats our air fryer pull apart bread rolls. Or if you have a bread machine then bread machine bread is even better.

Seasonings. I often refer to this as my spicy but simple lentil soup. You can mix and match the seasonings based on your mood and what spices you have in. For example, I made this today with coconut lime seasoning from M&S but I often make it instead with garam masala or a Thai seasoning.

    Hi Samantha – I had rather a lot of red lentils and was wondering what to do with them. I saw the recipe and thought I would give that a go in my Morphy Richards Model 48822, 1.6L capacity. The soup was great – really smooth and tasty.
    Question – how large is a large carrot? My peeled carrots were 125 grams each and I decided 4 was too much bulk for my soup maker and cut the quantity down to 3.
    I also doubled the veg stock to 1/2 litre and didn’t have to add any more liquid later. This made 5 mugs of soup – 1 for yesterday, 2 in the fridge and 2 in the freezer – a great result, thank you.

    1. Hi Duncan,

      I would say a large carrot is anything over 125g the ones that you can tell are just large when in the supermarket 🙂

  2. My soup maker looks same ad yours in photo and I cooked on smooth setting and use blend a few times but not cooked or blended well enough

    1. Hi Kat,

      I would be looking into if there is an issue with your soup maker. I have cooked carrots in the soup maker more times than I can remember and they have never not been cooked properly. Because what you are doing is boiling carrots for 28 minutes. So there is something not quite right there.

    2. Hiya Kat, I had the same problem with my new Soup Maker, the Morphy Richards Total Control Soup Maker, I got in touch with the supplier and he advised me to use the “Smooth+” program, which I will be doing using this recipe, if it doesn’t correct it I will return it as the other soup makers have always given me a perfectly smooth soup, so why doesn’t this top of the range expensive one do? Has anyone else had this problem with this particular model?
