9 Winter Soups You Can Make In A Blender

Who knew making soup could be this easy?

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.

BITE | butternut everything? works for me ? one of my favorite things this season is a blended squash soup (because we need to keep this healthy shiz easy, right?) here are some guidelines so you can use your creativity in the kitch: ?roast your squash first with olive oil, s + p {you may need a couple is you want 3-4 servings!} ?get some aromatics sautéing: some shallots, onions and/or garlic. if you want more veggies bring in the carrots and celery ?add herbs and spices like sage, ginger, oregano, nutmeg and/or cinnamon ?blend all that goodness with low sodium veggie or bone broth {adjust for how thick you want your soup} ?wanna go paleo? pork and squash should be luvahhs ?‍❤️‍? so add some bacon, pancetta or shredded pork for good fat and protein ? staying veggie? add pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds or pistachios tag @feelthis___ and #feelgoodfoods if you make your own squash creation based on these guidelines. spoons up! #feelthisbite

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.

My latest article, "Warming Foods for Fall" just went live on @giadaweekly #giadaweekly. Check it out? I've included my Asparagus soup recipe below. @giadadelaurentiis #giadadelaurentiis #blendersoups #blenditandtheywillcome #glutenfree #grainfree #dairyfree #greenisgood #foodsforweightloss ASPARAGUS SOUP: 1 bunch Asparagus 1/2 Onion (or 1 leek) 3 cloves Garlic 2 cups organic low sodium Chicken or Vegetable Broth (optional)1 T. Nutritional Yeast (try Bragg's) 1/4 c. olive oil Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil until soft (on medium/medium high heat.) Celtic sea salt and fresh pepper to taste. Add asparagus and sauté until it turns bright green. Add 2 cups vegetable or chicken broth. Simmer for 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender and blend until creamy. Makes 2 servings. Tip: I often give this simple and super satisfying Asparagus Soup to my patients if they need to lose a quick 5 pounds by the weekend. The diuretic aspect of the asparagus helps to drain excess water. Have it with a simply prepared protein of your choice for dinner during the week and by the weekend, you'll be all set!!
