Steps to make

Step 1

But when making tomato soup in soup maker this is completely optional. The same goes for other ingredients – onions, carrot, and potato; you can peel the skin or leave it as is. 

The powerful motor in the tomato soup machine does all the work and blends the ingredients well to make a smooth soup that does not leave any trace of skin. 

Step 2

If you don’t follow the step 1, simply cut all the ingredients into small pieces, just big enough to feed into the soup machine. 

Next, add all the ingredients to the soup maker except the basil leaves. Start the soup maker and allow the machine to blend the ingredients. To make the soup even tastier, you can consider adding some vegetable stock.

Step 3

Put the lid, adjust the setting to ‘smooth’ soup cycle, and watch the soup maker turn the ingredients into a delicious and smooth soup. At the end of the cycle, carefully lift the lid and add the basil leaves. Now, give the soup a gentle stir manually for about 15-30 seconds, until the chopped leaves completely mix with the soup. 

Step 4

Pour the soup into bowls or mugs and serve. You can add some seasoning as required. Don’t forget to add some fresh basil or thyme leaves on top for garnish. Thyme leaves add another dimension of flavour and freshness to the soup.
