A creamy potato pumpkin soup you can make in your blender!
Last summer I went to the county fair. And while pretty much everyone else was stuffing their face with some disgusting/amazing fried concoction, I was at the Vitamix tent tasting smoothie, juice and soup samples contemplating finally forking over the dinero to get one of these so called “life-changing” blenders.
The poor Vitamix employees had to deal with my questions and pathetic attempts at negotiating for a good 45 minutes before I finally caved.
They earned that commission.
Compared to the POS Cuisinart I had before this thing, the Vitamix is obviously leaps and bounds better, but it’s not the fact that I don’t have to shake it violently anymore to get ice chopped up or smoothie ingredients to actually mix together that impresses me most, it’s the fact that I can make freakin’ soup in.my.blender.
Like throw an onion in without cooking and it becomes soup! That totally blew my mind when I saw them demo that at the tent and last winter I pretty much made soup 3-4 times a week without ever breaking out a pot or better yet, an immersion blender (I just hate that thing).
It’s so easy it almost feels like cheating!
