Soup Maker Recipe: Creamy Tomato Soup (Passata Recipe)

This is a wickedly easy way to make a good tomato soup that doesn’t require hours of steaming and peeling tomatoes, or having to sieve your soup by pushing it through a muslin cloth.

You could substitute fresh tomatoes for the tinned ones, and not lose any flavour or taste with the recipe.  Make it how it suits you.

We add cream at the serving stage, which makes it a much more creamy soup.  It is a thick soup, so if you like your soups watery, this isn’t for you.

Some people have commented that this soup with passata burns in their machines.  It’s not happened to me, but if you think it’s a possibility, then it might not be a soup for you.

Soup Maker Recipe: Creamy Tomato Soup (Passata Base)

Lesley Smith
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 21 minutes
Total Time 31 minutes
Course Soup
Servings 4 -6


  • 1 l Tomato Passata
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • 400 g Tin Plum Tomatoes
  • 2 Vegetable Stock Cubes
  • 200 ml Whole Milk
  • 2 tablespoons Tomato Puree


  • Add all the ingredients into your soup maker. If you plan to freeze some soup, leave the milk out of the batch, and add it in proportion when you reheat the soup to serve. Freezing soup with cream or milk in it, will cause it to separate or curdle on reheating.
  • You will look for the smooth setting for this soup, as you want it as pureed as possible. If it isn't smooth enough for your taste, simply choose the smoothie setting on your soup maker if you have one, or use a stick blender to smooth it even more.
  • Serve Immediately, with Croutons, or Why Not Try a Scone, For Something Different


This soup may not be suitable for all machines. Some people have commented that this soup with passata might burn in their machines.   A reader commented that Morphy Richards does not recommend passata in their soup makers.

  1. Just trying your tomato soup now. Hope it don’t stick. I will let you know. Make your lentil soup all the time and never sticks in my machine

    1. Hope it all went well. It’s fine in mine, but I know some people find it tricky to manage.

  2. Hi, i made this soup, but it stuck to the bottom of my machine and forced it to cut out. I phoned Morphy Richards who told me not to use passata in the machine as it’s too thick! also told me to always put liquid ingredients in machine first.
    Real shame because i love tomato soup.

    1. Which machine are you using Brian? I have the saute version and it’s never stuck with me, so I’m wondering if it’s in the version without the non stick coating. I’ve tried to replicate burning with passata and only once had a little on the bottom, but never had my machine cut out. I always stir well with other ingredients, so perhaps that stops the burning issue for me most of the time. I’ll have to try this again without stirring and see what happens.

      By way of adding ingredients first, my machine has the saute function, so those ingredients are added first. There’s no mention in the instructions about taking that out before adding in stock, then adding the sauteed vegetables back in. I’ll give them a call too. Even their own instructions are recommending add vegetables first and then the stock. P10 onwards.

  3. Am making it now….we’ll see how it turns out!

    1. There seem to be mixed opinions on tomato soups. I suspect most issues could be cleared up with some herbs or cream. Hope yours went ok.


  4. I had mixed experiences with this soup. Firstly, it burnt on the bottom of the Soup Maker within 8-10 minutes. I cleaned the bottom out and tried again, and it burnt again. The saving grace is it tastes REALLY nice. One for the saucepan, sadly…

    1. That’s a shame. Sadly, ingredients can sometimes stick to the bottom of a pan. If I add cheese to a soup, I’d be tempted to grease my old Morphy Richards first, or give it a spray of cake release. This didn’t burn with me, so I’m always interested to find out what some of us could do differently when our soups burn. Perhaps your version of soup maker gets hotter than mine.

      I mix my ingredients in the pot very thoroughly, so I’m not sure if that makes a difference, especially if I’m using lentils or pulses. I have swapped to the saute and soup maker with the non stick lining now, so any future soups won’t stick at all, I hope.

      1. I love the saute and soup maker. I’ve been very lucky never had any soup stick, whereas with cooking in a pan, I’ve been know to nearly burn the kitchen down lol.

  5. This sounds really yummy and I think it will be my next soup to make, thanks.

    1. I hope you enjoy your soup. It’s such an easy recipe to make.

      1. Hi I tend to put all ingredients in to a sauce pan first then blend it in the soup maker loverly soup ty
