Five simple vegetarian soup recipes for a soupmaker

I love my new soup maker, so much that I blogged a review of it here - Andrew James soup maker review. But one problem that I have is that it doesn't have a huge capacity, and all of my soup recipes made a quantity that was too large to fit. So I've put together five really simple recipes which fit perfectly into my soup maker. They don't use too many ingredients, and are really easy to make, and taste delicious.

Each recipe makes four small portions or two large portions. Unless otherwise stated, just add all the ingredients into the soup maker and press start. My soups are all made with vegetable stock cubes, but I would imagine that you could use a meat based stock cube too.

Lentil and Carrot Soup

1tsp cumin seeds, toasted
Small pinch chilli flakes
100g dried red lentils
350g carrots, chopped
450ml stock
Seasoning

Tomato and Bean Soup

1 can chopped tomatoes
1 onion
1 carrot
Italian herb seasoning
350ml stock
Seasoning

Leek and Potato Soup

1 onion
1 small potato
1 leek
75ml double cream (half a small tub)
450ml stock
Seasoning

Spicy Butternut Squash Soup

1/2 butternut squash
1 onion
1 carrot
1 tsp mixed spice
450ml stock
Seasoning

Spicy butternut squash soup

Lentil, Chickpea and Chilli Soup

1 tsp cumin seeds, toasted
Small pinch chill flakes
1 onion
100g dried red lentils
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 can chickpeas
450ml stock
Seasoning

Lentil chickpea and chilli soup

Because my soup maker blends the soup very smoothly, even on the chunky setting, for the Lentil, Chickpea and Chilli soup I reserve half the can of chickpeas and stir it in at the end for a bit of texture.

I hope that these recipes are useful, and if you have any others to share I would love to try them out!
