46 Soup Maker Recipes! (2024)

I decided it was about time I collated all my top soup maker recipes in one post!

Before I got my soup maker, I wondered whether it would be one of those gimmicky marketing ploys to get me to part with my money.

But I was wrong. I have had my soup maker (and tested various others, too) for well over eight years, and it is in constant use. Yes, even in the summer months!

Red pepper and chilli soup is a deliciously warming recipe with a spicy kick. It’s quick and easy to make in a soup maker, requiring very little preparation.

The great thing about this soup is that you can make it as hot as you like. If you want a mildly spicy soup, just add one deseeded chilli pepper; fancy it a bit hotter? Add one or two seeded peppers to really feel the heat!

4. Apple and Parsnip Soup

46 Soup Maker Recipes! (4)

This apple and parsnip soup is a delicious and easy to make favourite. The sweetness from the parsnip, combined with the tartness of the apples, makes this soup feel like a real treat, especially with the added cinnamon.

This soup is also incredibly versatile – you can swap out the parsnips for carrots or even sweet potatoes and use any type of apple you like.

5. Sweet Potato and Red Chilli Soup

Add chopped parsnips, carrots, curry powder and some vegetable stock. For a final touch, stir in some cream and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve piping hot with crusty bread for a truly satisfying meal.


Black beans are a handy standby to have in the cupboard for various meals. They work well in stews as well as soups. I like to add some sweet potatoes alongside some spices to really add some sweet warmth to this soup.

This Mexican-inspired tortilla soup is a flavourful recipe that is perfect for a chilly winter day. The soup contains various ingredients, including tomatoes, onions, garlic, and chilli peppers. The soup is typically served with tortilla chips, sour cream, and cheese.

This Spanish potato soup recipe is based on one of my favourite Spanish dishes, patatas bravas.

I’ve adapted it to be made as a soup in asoup maker, with all the tastes you’d expect with fresh peppers, chillies, paprika and, of course, potatoes.

15. Cranberry and Apple Soup

46 Soup Maker Recipes! (15)

A perfect Christmas soup, cranberry and apple is easy to make, and the tart cranberry flavour perfectly matches the apples.

I like to use Granny Smith or Gala apples, but you can use any apple that you have on hand.

Serve the soup chilled or hot, topped with a dollop of cream or yoghurt.

16. Chicken and Tarragon Soup

46 Soup Maker Recipes! (16)

There’s nothing quite like a steaming bowl of chicken soup on a cold winter day. This particular recipe features the classic combination of chicken and tarragon, enhanced by adding garlic, onion and some cream.

This soup is hearty enough to be a meal on its own, but it also pairs well with a crusty piece of bread.

Chicken noodle soup is filling, making it ideal for a substantial lunchtime meal.

20. Bacon and Lentil Soup

26. Cauliflower Cheese Soup

46 Soup Maker Recipes! (26)

Cauliflower cheese soup is usually thick and creamy, and the flavour of the cheese is often the dominant taste.

Cauliflower can vary in taste depending on how it is cooked, but it is generally mild and slightly nutty. When combined with cheese, the soup has a rich and savoury flavour.

The cheeses most commonly used in cauliflower cheese soup are cheddar and Gruyere, although other types of cheese can also be used.

Cauliflower cheese soup can be served with croutons or bread, and it is often garnished with chopped chives or bacon bits.

27. Tomato Soup
