I've been so pleased with my new soup maker that I wrote a full review which you can read here - Andrew James Soup Maker and Blender. One thing I've found though is that it doesn't make such a large quantity as many soup recipes, so I'm having to scale down my recipes to make them fit. Having been sent some Steenbergs Mixed Spice to try, I decided to try a spicy butternut squash soup.
This simple recipe fits perfectly into my soup maker, and makes two large portions or three smaller portions.
Half a butternut squash, chopped
One carrot, chopped
One onion, chopped
450ml stock (I use vegetable stock)
One teaspoon of mixed spice
Pinch of salt and pepper
Simply add the ingredients into the soup maker and turn it on. You can make the same recipe on the hob though, just add the ingredients into a saucepan and cook until the vegetables are soft, then blend.
The spices were lovely and gave the soup a wonderful, warming taste. Delicious!
