I was looking for a smoothie maker online so i could have a healthy smoothie for breakfast every day (well probably for 3 days then it will gather dust in the cupboard) when i spotted a soup maker!! Yes you are reading that right an actual machine that makes soup all by itself!
I LOVE homemade soup but its just such a faff to make so i was literally giddy when i saw it, and added bonus it was half price at Curry's, which obviously means it was meant to be.
I thought this would be brilliant for dieting too! Lots of healthy fresh veg soups, low in calories and also a good way to get extra veg into the children. So i used my soup maker for the first time today and i am super duper impressed! Soooo easy to use.
I used an old soup recipe i used to make the traditional way before my super soup maker entered my world. This yummy spicy butternut squash soup will make 4-6 servings depending on your bowl size and its just 83 calories for a larger portion!
1 Butternut Squash
2 med Onions
1 Red Chilli deseeded
1 Vegetable stock cub
1 1/2 pints of water
Pinch of salt and pepper
All you do is chop up your vegetables
Pop them into your soup maker along with the rest of the ingredients.
Then set your soup maker to the desired soup you want i wanted a smooth soup and that takes just 21 mins to make.
When it starts it sounds like a kettle boiling and i was listening to it blend and it didn't seem like it blended an awful lot so i was expecting a slightly less smooth soup than i usually like but when i lifted off the lid....
Ta Daaaa Perfectly smooth soup in just 21 mins and only one thing to wash up! Amazing!!
It tasted just as delicious as always too. I am so impressed with this and think it will be such a great addition to our kitchen and will really help with the diet too! Me and Jade will be keeping you up to date with our dieting results so be sure to pop back and see if the soup maker helped! In the meantime get yourself off to currys for a soupmaker whilst they are still in stock!
