Put Your Blender Through Its Paces – It’s #Soupvember
The weather has turned and there’s no doubt about it, there’s a distinctive autumnal chill in the air. As the nights draw in and the drafts nip around our heels, thoughts inevitably turn to soup. It’s #Soupvember.
Soup is a super thing. It can be nourishing, filling, delicious, hearty, colourful – take your pick. It’s a wonderful way get a quick meal together, to pack in those vegetables and warm everyone up. If you have a power blender, you can transform your soups into bowls of extra smooth and silky lusciousness. You can even make some soups using nothing but the blender itself.
Throughout November we’ll be showcasing blender soups with lots of tips and how-tos, both here on the blog and via our social media channels. We’re not calling it #Soupvember for nothing. If you don’t follow us already, here are our social media links: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
To get you in the mood, here are five gorgeous autumnal soups to relish and enjoy.
5 Gorgeous Autumnal Soups for #Soupvember
Easy Sweet Potato and Apple Soup
Apples and sweet potatoes come into there own in Autumn. We can hardly step outside the door at the moment for windfall apples. This easy sweet potato and apple soup from The Healthy Tart is made entirely in our Optimum Vac2 Air Vacuum Blender and takes about 11 minutes from start to finish. You can, of course, cook it on the stove and blend once its cooked.
Creamy Kale Soup
Kale is another vegetable that’s at its best in autumn. It’s not the most obvious choice for soup, but it’s surprisingly delicious. Why not try this creamy kale soup? You’ll find the recipe over at Food to Glow. It was blended in our Optimum 9400 High Performance Blender.
Leek and Potato Soup
Leek and potato soup is a classic autumn and winter warmer. Traditionally it’s a clear soup with the vegetables visible as chunks, but this leek and potato soup from Feeding Boys is whizzed up in a blender to make it smooth and creamy. The wholemeal parmesan croutons are optional but they do sound good. It’s often the little extras that turn a good soup into a great soup. This one was made in our Optimum G2.3 Power Blender.
Creamy Spiced Butternut Squash and Coconut Soup
With Halloween just gone, there’s probably heaps of pumpkins and squashes going cheap. Why not try making this creamy spiced butternut squash and coconut soup from Maple + Spice? The soup was blended in our original Optimum 9400 high performance blender.
Celeriac & Hazelnut Soup
Celeriac is another seasonal vegetable that’s great for autumn and winter soups. It’s made extra special here with the addition of hazelnuts. Get this vegan celeriac & hazelnut soup recipe from The Veg Space. This soup was whizzed together in one of our power blenders.
