I’ve talked about soups several times in the past.
Problem with making soups at home? Time, energy and effort.
And while some of my friends, who happen to be very talented cooks, will probably laugh at me (I can practically hear them now), I like throwing technology at problems.
So when I came across the Morphy Richards Soup Maker for sale in a shop nearby I simply had to have one.
The soup maker takes a lot of the pain and hassle out of making soup. You simply chop up the ingredients, chuck them into the “kettle”, add seasoning, stock (if you’re using it) and water and switch it on. Depending on the settings you’ll have a nice freshly made soup about 20 minutes later.
I like simple. Simple makes me happy!
Here’s a video from Morphy Richards which explains how it works:
Admittedly I haven’t had a chance to use the machine much yet. So far I’ve made one simple, yet tasty, vegetable soup with it.
The machine ships with an instruction booklet which includes a limited number of recipes. I suspect that most “normal” soup recipes will work out fine with it, but I’ll have to experiment to be sure.
Getting the quantity of liquid right I suspect is going to be a challenge. Personally I really don’t like watery soups!
