With fall giving way to winter, it’s definitely soup weather and the perfect time to whip up a batch of flavorful beet or tortilla soup. Although we certainly love our Crock-Pots, we love our blenders just as much—because you can make all the below soups with the simple touch of a button. So, prepare to get hungry, because it’s likely impossible to read the below without feeling your stomach rumble. In fact, you may want to get your blender or Vitamix ready before you read this.
1. Raw Beet Soup
This recipe is not only delicious, but also festive. You just need a few key ingredients, such as beets and an apple, and voilà! Dinner is served!
2. Tortilla Soup
When you make this recipe by Some The Wiser, it’ll look a lot like the picture here. You use the typical tortilla soup ingredients, like tomatoes and garlic powder, and just blend most of them together until smooth. However, when you add the corn, black beans and chicken, you use the “pulse” setting, so the soup will still be chunky (and look authentically homemade). Then, just choose the accents you want to add atop each, whether it’s diced avocado or jalapeños. Yum.
3. Squash Soup
Chances are, some of us still have unused squash laying around, so now’s the perfect time to use it. You can either make this soup vegetarian—or not. (Hint: Add bacon, pancetta, or shredded pork for the latter, the recipe suggests.) As you’ll see, @feelthis__ recommends simply roasting your squash first. Then, just blend all the ingredients together. Aside from being ever-so-colorful, the end result tastes delicious, too.
4. Asparagus Soup
Who said soup can’t be healthy? @debbiekimwellness first sautés some of her ingredients, like the onions and garlic, but the recipe is still a breeze to make, especially once everything’s thrown into the blender.
5. Vegan Blended Power Soup
Yes, blender soups can be vegan, too, and this one sounds wonderful (even if you’re not a vegan or vegetarian). Maybe it’s the nutmeg or maybe it’s the overall combo. There’s only one way to find out… by making it!
6. Roasted Cauliflower Soup With Turmeric
You probably know that turmeric is a wonder spice, helping with everything from fighting inflammation to whitening your teeth (!). This soup is no exception, and an ideal time to make something tasty and healthy! You can get the recipe for this amazing soup here.
7. Tomato Basil Soup
Yes, this recipe really is as simple as the Instagram post implies. Mmmm!
8. V8-Based Soup
Instagram user @erikakerekes experimented with making a blender soup—just like we all should, right?—and came up with this V8-based concoction. We can’t wait to try it!
9. Spinach Soup
With just five ingredients, you can have this spinach soup for dinner! All we can say is, spinach never looked so good!
All in all, when you make blender soups, the possibilities are endless, and winter’s the perfect season to make them. Plus, it’s a great way to experiment with using random ingredients you have in your house. You just may surprise yourself! Then, invite us over for some.
