Apple, Carrot & Celery Soup


We get a lot of questions about making soups in the Vitamix and Blendtec blenders. Although it’s a bit of a parlor trick (we can think of much more efficient ways to heat food beside friction) we thought we’d publish this recipe anyway!

Ingredients:
6″ piece of celery
6″ piece of carrot
1 apple with peal, cored & halved (use Jonagold or other crisp, sweet-tart apple)
1 dime-sized piece of fresh ginger
1/2 tablespoons fresh basil (or 1/4 teaspoon dry)
1 extra large (10g) vegetable bouillon cube
1/2 teaspoon of paprika
pinch of cayenne
salt to taste
handful of french bread* (3/4 to 1 cup)
2 cups of hot water

Directions:
This recipe works best with a variable-speed blender like the Vitamix VS or the Blendtec HP3A.

Place all ingredients in the container, in the order listed. Secure lid. Turn on blender at the lowest speed, gradually increase to highest speed. Process about 60 seconds until steaming.

* Bread is used as a thickener in this soup recipe. French bread is preferred because of it’s mild taste. It thickens without dramatically affecting the flavor.

      This recipe is awesome! Omitted the bread crumbs first time I made it. Prefer gluten free Added olive oil and fresh cilantro next time. This soup is a very good base flavor for many creations.
      Thank you for the great recipe. I enjoyed it.
      Cheers!
