1 small onion, 1 small carrot, 1 stick celery, 2 cloves garlic
Add the oil to the soup maker and select the sauté function. Add the prepared onion, carrot and celery. Fry for a few minutes, stirring all the time with a long handled spoon. Add the garlic and then cook for another minute or two.

When the cycle has finished, the soup is ready to serve.
Fridge – Allow your soup maker tomato soup to cool, pack into containers, seal and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Freezer – Once cold, pack into containers, seal and freeze. Store for up to 6 months.
Reheating – Defrost in the fridge overnight, or on the kitchen counter for a few hours. You can reheat your soup in a pan on the stove top, or in a safe container in the microwave. When using the microwave, I like to use a jug for ease of handling.
Hints and Tips
- To save time, use a frozen ready made soffritto mix (about a cup). I make up a big batch of homemade soffritto paste and freeze it but you can buy it.
- Make up the stock double strength and then add water to fill the soup maker to about half way between minimum and maximum.
- It is far easier to clean the soup maker while it is still warm. Give it a good rinse under the hot tap, fill with warm water and add a few drops of washing up liquid. Set to blend for a few seconds. Then rinse again and leave to dry.
