Morphy Richards Compact Soup Maker

As summer is now a memory, and we are embracing Autumn with cooler days and the nights drawing in, I always start to look forward to comfort food.  We love homemade soup along with homemade bread.  So when I was given the opportunity to review the Morphy Richards Compact Soup Maker, I said yes instantly.

Morphy Richards Compact Soup  RRP £49.99

I make homemade soups fairly often, and have often wondered about buying a soup maker, but always thought they are just another gadget that will not be used, and will end up gathering dust in the back of a cupboard.  How wrong was I.

The soup maker comes with a booklet that has a few soup recipes in it, or you can google recipes  and find so many more recipe ideas.

I was going to make a leak and potato soup for my first try, but as there was no leaks in the shop, I ended up making a cream of cauliflower soup.

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oi
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 large onion peeled and diced
  • 600g cauliflower florets, washed
  • 200g potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 100ml double cream
Directions
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan and saute the onion and garlic until soft
  • Into the soup maker place  the potato, cauliflower, garlic and onion
  • Add the cream and stock
  • Place the lid and choose smooth setting

I pressed start and waiting for the maker to do its thing.  Once it had finished I opened the lid to find a smooth, thick and creamy soup that was piping hot.

Our verdict, very impressed and one we will be making again.

I have since tried leak and potato and pea and ham soup and both of these have been a huge hit as well.

Homemade soup is so easy to make, and you can turn any left over  or old vegetables into a healthy warming and satisfying meal.  I really can not wait to start trying out new flavours and experimenting.

My only complaint with this soup maker is that I wish I had got one a long time ago.

What is your favourite soup?
