Homemade Cup of Soup

Its now Sunday and looking forward to a very lazy day. This in itself is great but no good for the waistline as I tend to pick at food throughout the day! I had some left over liquor from last night dinner, see here, a Nigel Slater special which I used for my stock.

So my answer to this is a very thin soup that I call a cup of soup. If I get hungry I can simply fill a cup with this, put it the microwave or a small pan and heat it through hunger assuaged.

Serves: 4

  • 1 tbsp of rapeseed oil (olive oil will do)
  • 2 tomatoes finely chopped
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 handful of petit pois (or garden peas)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp of chilli powder
  • 1 celery stick
  • 1 medium potato , chopped
  • 3 splashes of Worcester sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 chicken stockpots (I did 1 stockpot plus liquor from last nights dinner)
  • Add hot water to (level 1 in the soupmaker the higher one)


  • Put all ingredients in the soup maker and set to smooth
  • Alternatively put all of the ingredients into the pan and bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 minute’s or so, then blend when done until smooth.
  • For a thinner soup add more water, for a thicker soup add less water.
