Recipe Notes

There are a few ways you can puree the soup to make it super smooth and creamy:

  • Immersion Blender – This is the best and easiest method to use.  You’re able to blend a lot of liquid and it makes it super smooth.  Also, you do not have to transfer hot liquids from one pot to another.
  • Vitamix – The second best blending method since it can hold a large volume of liquid.  Just be careful when transporting the hot liquid.
  • Food Processor – The least effective and more time-consuming method since you will have to purée in batches.  However, it will work if that is all you have!
