Our answer

Nigella's Spinach And Coconut Soup is a Thai-inspired soup that is very easy and quick to make but still full of flavour. It is also made from 5 ingredients that you may well have in your freezer and pantry, making it a perfect standby dish.

The recipe only requires the green curry paste, coconut milk, spinach and bouillon powder to be heated together in a saucepan, simmered for 10 minutes and then it is ready to serve. You could probably do this in a soup maker, but as the soup doesn't need to be blended we feel that a saucepan may be the easiest option. Soup makers also generally heat up the ingredients less quickly than a saucepan on the stove, so it could take slightly longer to make the soup. if you did want to make the soup in a soup maker then we would probably suggest that the spinach is thawed before using. Frozen chopped spinach is often sold portioned into in fairly dense pucks and these could take a while to thaw out in a soup maker. Also, if your soup maker blade stirs the ingredients as they heat up then the solid balls of frozen spinach could blunt the blades.
