Heart-warming, soul-nourishing, filling up…matched with the perfect crusty roll, or a slice of freshly baked soda bread, topped with golden melting butter – there is little as comforting or as familiar as a good bowl of soup.
Regardless of whether you like smooth creamy soups, or a little bite with coarsely chopped vegetables in yours, or perhaps more a clear broth, topped with some deliciously aromatic herbs, soups are always welcome regardless of the time of day or season.
While not difficult to make, soups do tend to require a little bit more attention – chopping up, sautéing, stirring – because of that it’s easy to see the appeal of an automatic soup maker, after all, who would not want the convenience of chucking in all your favourite ingredients and at a push of a button, get your soup prepared for you, especially in the colder winter months?
