A fishy coffee maker made soup – VIDEO

I posted this recipe a while back but since it’s one of my favorite recipes (not taste wise because of the saffron that I’m not very fond of) I chose to cook it on my web show “The Coffee Maker Chef” (now with subtitles).

Here’s how you prepare a luxurious fish and shellfish soup with a coffee maker!

Time

  • 1 evening

Ingredients

  • 1 small red onion
  • Some celery leek
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2,5 dl cream
  • 1 fish stock cube
  • 1 filter thingy filled with mussels (about 15)
  • 1,5 dl white wine
  • 4 dl water
  • 2 Norway lobsters
  • Mixed fish pieces (I used salmon and some other fish that I don’t know what it was)
  • 1 handful of prawns
  • Saffron
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Salt
  • Bell pepper
  • Sugar peas
  • Curry
  • Butter

Instructions

Start your coffee maker. Melt the butter in the coffee maker carafe and fry all the chopped onions for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile scrub the mussels and sort out the ones that’s crappy.

Pour cream, fish stock cube and wine in the carafe, place the mussels in the filter thingy and pour water into the coffee brewer. Now the mussels will be cooked perfectly in the filter holder. Amazing, right!?! Let it coffee maker cook for at least an hour so it gets really warm. Season.

Add Norway lobsters, prawns, and the mussels a short while to improve the taste even more. Finally add the fish pieces, the crispy bell pepper pieces and sugar peas. Let it coffee maker cook for another 10 minutes – or until the fish is ready.

Turn off your coffee maker and serve this delicious (?) 100% coffee maker cooked dinner.

How to cook Cauliflower Soup with your coffee maker

cooking with a coffee maker

Time

  • 4 ½ hours

Ingredients

  • 1 potato
  • 1 small onion
  • ½ cauliflower head
  • 6 dl vegetable broth
  • 100 g Philadelphia cheese
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Bacon
  • Bread
  • Butter
  • Garlic

Instructions

Start your coffee maker. Fry the bacon until it gets crispy, directly on the heater. Meanwhile prepare everything else that you’ll have to cut, peel and chop. Remove bacon, unplug the coffee maker and wash it.

Start your coffee maker again because now it’s time for the soup! Melt a dollop of butter in the carafe. Add chopped onions and potato and fry this for half an hour. Pour water into the brewer, the stock cube in the filter thingy and the finely chopped cauliflower into the carafe. Cook this until everything is tender.

Mash everything together (you could use a hand-held blender) until it gets fairly smooth. Add cheese and let it melt in the hot soup for another half an hour. Season with salt and pepper.

It’s nice to serve this tasty soup with garlic bread. Mix butter and garlic together and melt it on the heater. Fry the bread for like fifteen minutes on each side. Turn off your coffee maker.

Serve the soup with bacon on top and together with the garlic bread.

How to cook a cat with your coffee maker

After I posted this on the Swedish version of Coffee Machine Cuisine people got very upset. Some of the things they called me was idiot, cannibal (?) and they even said that I’m the reason for the low status that cats got in this society. I don’t get why people are so upset?! It’s no worse than eating a cow, pig or a chicken if you ask me. And hunting must be the most humane way to kill animals for food.

It all took place on a warm and sunny day when me and Dan were out at our cabin with all of our cats. Since we got so many cats I figured that I could shoot one of them so I released them into the woods and began the hunt. First I thought that the fat one, Gucci, would be an easy shot but she managed to escape surprisingly quickly. It was the sun that eventually was Iggy’s downfall. She is quite photophobic you see so she could hardly see where she was going. And BAM, easy shot for me.cooking with your coffee maker

R.I.P. my little sweetheart.

Time

  • 5 hours

Ingredients

  • 1 cat
  • ½ red onion
  • 1 pimiento
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 ½ dl coconut milk
  • 2 ½ dl cream
  • 2 tbsp meat extract
  • Juice of lime
  • Ginger
  • Butter

Instructions

Skin, fillet and chop the kitty cat. Start your coffee maker, grease the heater and place the pieces of your cat onto it. Fry it until they are cooked throughly and tender, it will take about an hour (it depends on what cut of meat you’re using and how fresh it is). Remove the meat and wipe the heater.

Chop all of the remaining ingredients that shall be chopped. Put a dollop of butter into the carafe, let it melt and then put the onion and the garlic in the carafe and fry it for about half an hour. Season with ginger. Add coconut milk, cream and meat extract and let it cook for two hours – it should get really warm. After that add the cat meat and wait a bit longer. Finally add pimiento pieces, lime juice and season generously with freshly ground black pepper and just a little salt. Turn off your coffee maker.

The best way to serve this delicious cat stew is accompanied by a glass of a tasty red wine and freshly baked bread.

Dan was a little bit upset because Iggy was his favorite cat. But he’s over it now.

How to cook potato soup with leeks on your coffee maker

This soup might not seem to be super tasty, but actually it is one of the yummiest recipes I’ve made. After our book was released 2011 I was invited to Gothenburg book fair to cook one of the recipes from the book in my coffee maker. At the end of the day some people got to try the soup and they said that it definitely was the best food on the whole fair.

Maybe it was shitty food on the fair, but I choose to believe that it simply is a great soup. Dan made this soup for me on our first date. I thought when he said that he was going to make a soup for me that it was kind of a dull thing, but I quickly changed my mind after I ate it.

how to cook food with your coffee maker

Time

5 hours

Ingredients

  • 4-5 potatoes
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 handful of leeks
  • 1 piece of vegetable stock
  • Rosemary
  • Tarragon
  • Chervil
  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche
  • ½ dl milk
  • Parsley
  • Pepper
  • Salt

Instructions

Peel and quarter the potatoes and the carrot. Chop the leek. Add this into the can, a stock cube into the filter thingy and water in the brewer. Start the coffee maker. The water should just cover the ingredients. Also add rosemary, tarragon and chervil. Let this stand in a half eternity because it must be really soft and well cooked. About four hours maybe. Then bilge half of the water.

Whip/chop the ingredients with a whisk/spoon (or use a blender if you have it – I didn’t have one at the time). Pour the crème fraîche, parsley and milk. Stir and heat the soup again for another hour. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off the coffeemaker.

Sprinkle some leeks on top and serve.
