I’m going to make soup in a blender.
Soup made IN A BLENDER?
I know, I know, skepticism and ignorance play a small role here. Every soup I’ve ever made has been in a big ole pot!
I have never ever made soup with a blender until now…
Say hello to the Kenmore Pro Professional Blender. Isn’t she pretty? Apparently I’ve been taking the long way around to make soup! Haha
I rarely use a blender on a good day never mind a heavy duty professional blender. I’ve always heard about the cost of them before I heard of what they can do. Luckily, this exclusive new blender is similar to its competitors but the difference is it’s affordable! Way to go Sears Canada!
When I opened up the box and saw the recipe book, at first I was in shock and then I was in awe!
You can make sauces, desserts (ice cream) and even nut milk! My next adventure will be to make my own cashew milk.
Anyhoo, I couldn’t wait to see if this blender could actually make a soup that was warm and ready to eat.
I always try to use ingredients that are already in the house whenever I try a new recipe (not only for the convenience but also just in case i mess it up)!
So I decided to make Avocado Corn & Potato soup!
The process is simple and so quick. Throw in all of the ingredients and press the button!
I made a lil video of the process, take a look!
And here’s the finished product:
Ok, so I definitely used too many potatoes and not enough avocado but I was very happy with the texture. I know what to do now!
My thoughts on the blender itself:
What could use some work?
a) noise level: Although I’m not sure how you can improve upon that, it’s quite loud
What I love most?
a) Power: I couldn’t believe how pressing the Pulse button for a few seconds instantly pulverized the hard potatoes. I can see how it would be great for juicing and sauces as well.
b) Heating Function: For soups, you can pour directly into the bowl!
