Fancy soup? You will love this giveaway – presented by Philips

Philips Cook&Blend Soupmaker

Philips Cook&Blend Soupmaker

Those of you who have been following FooDiva for a little while, will know I am a huge fan of Philips’ kitchen goods thanks to its AirFryer (fries can indeed be healthy!) and Avance juicer, so with its new SoupMaker launching this week, the generous folks at Philips are giving away not just one but two just for you!

FooDiva’s a sucker for soups – we may live in a damn hot climate but oh my with airconditioning, I am always freezing and forever tempted to order soup off a menu or make it at home. So no one’s more excited than me to put the SoupMaker to the test – let’s see how it fares…

As you can see here from this photo it looks like a large kettle with a stainless steel jar. Simply throw in your ingredients, and there’s a 22-strong recipe book included to inspire.

Broccoli & stilton soupOne of FooDiva’s favourite soups is broccoli, hugely in season now, with stilton. So in goes chopped broccoli and spring onions to deepen the flavour, crumbled stilton and cold vegetable stock with a little seasoning. An indicator on the inner side helpfully shows the maximum level for ingredients. Close the lid which has the blending blade attached, select the smooth soup setting and press the start button. 23 minutes later the timer beeps and you have your own hot and steamy home-made soup with enough to feed four! The soup will keep warm for forty minutes so you can prepare in advance. Anyhow as we well know to ensure maximum flavour, soups are best made a day in advance – great for dinner party planning. A heads up, the stainless steel jug can get quite hot so mind those fingers.

There’a also a chunky soup programme which worked well for a Thai-style lemongrass infused chicken, carrot and sweetcorn soup FooDiva made. If that wasn’t enough you also have three additional options for compotes, smoothies and a normal blender – all with hot and cold variations. Hence the SoupMaker Cook & Blend branding.

The lid with blade is pretty easy to hand wash – however you have to be careful with the jug as thanks to the heating element, you can’t have too much water splashing round. A little fiddly for sure and sadly not dishwasher-friendly. But other than that, it’s a fabulous kitchen tool that takes the fuss out of concocting soup – easy peasy and fun! So has FooDiva convinced you? If so, here’s your chance to win a couple!

  23. Sahar Shabbir November 13, 2012 at 2:27 pm

    Phillips soup maker definitely sounds great! 🙂

    My favorite soup is “Cream of Broccoli Cheese Soup”. The taste is just savory & since broccoli is my favorite vege, it just gets better as a soup! 🙂

    Going to share the recipe (adapted from Pioneer Woman) with you FooDiva & hope you’d love it as much as I do! 🙂


  24. DNCW November 14, 2012 at 11:54 am

    Classic french onion soup with lots of that melted cheese.

    But for an easier one, it will have to be pumpkin soup with roasted almonds and a dash of olive oil. Love it!
