This is a good book to have if you are learning what the Ninja Blender & Soupmaker can do. The recipes are well explained and there is a good variety to choose from.
Unfortunately I would point out:
1. the hot food recipes suggest a high quantity of salt and pepper. Two teaspoons of sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper! The end result, if you follow the recipe faithfully, is way beyond salty and really should be tempered down. This is a book written for the American/Canadian market so perhaps they prefer very salty food. Otherwise for we Europeans, I would stick with the usual I.e., “add salt and pepper to taste” or “season to taste”;
2. the recipe for Creamy Carrot & Ginger Soup states it’s suitable for Vegans. This is not the case because the first ingredient to use is 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter. The recipe is definitely vegetarian but not vegan. It’s no big deal as the butter can be substituted with coconut oil etc., but if you are a Vegan keep a sharp look out.
However, as I said initially, it’s a good book to have to help you use the Ninja Blender & Soupmaker to the full and on that basis I would recommend you buy it.
This is for the American market- the functions on the UK machine are different wish they had a conversation chart for the buttons that are different- a lot are the same and I have made some recipes that worked well .
Great book with a fantastic range off recipes. Only issues being an American produced book and recipes are in American measures (there is a conversion chart at the back of the book) and some of the recipes aren't for the UK made version of the Ninja soup maker/blender. For example there is a chapter for cocktails but the UK Ninja does not have a cocktail button.
With a huge allotment of veggies, making soups, chutneys, and sauces is now so easy. So easy to use, easy to clean, and great recipes. You can also alter your own recipes once you understand the ratios. I cannot recommend this enough!
Tried out with a leek and potato soup so far and worked a treat. Used the auto blend and heat buttons. Early days yet, but look forward to making summer smoothies. Blender is very noisy, but it is the only negative comment.
Perfect! Goes (you would expect) amazingly well with my Ninja Foodi blender! The recipes are easy to follow, it gives you helpful tips, the calorie amount, it gives me recipes for things you wouldnt even think of eg. Alcoholic drinks. It is a well written and thought out book, definitely worth buying!
This product is excellent and very user friendly, it produces wonderful various recipes with simple instructions and is a joy to use. It does away with having different pots and pans while the cleaning process is simplicity itself. I am very happy with my Blender and have no hesitation in recommending to others.
It has not been easy to find recipes for my new Ninja soup maker and blender so was very happy to find this book. Written in the USA to have had a little trouble converting some measurements. Great choice of varied recipes.
