A collection of cozy and nourishing pureed soup recipes to help keep you warm this winter.
It’s not really a secret that I’m more than a little obsessed with soup. I could probably eat it every day and never get bored.
In these cold, dark days of early winter, nothing beats a good blended or pureed soup – they’re just so cozy and comforting!
Below, you’ll find a collection of my favorite vitamix soup recipes. They cover everything from classic broccoli cheese and tomato soup to vibrant vegan soups filled with green vegetables, spicy lentil stews, and silky seafood chowders.
The one thing that these delicious soup recipes all have in common is that you can make them extra silky smooth by making them in a Vitamix, or in your favorite blender.
Whatever mood you’re in, you’ll be sure to find a soup that sounds delicious!
How to Make Soup in a Vitamix?
Did you know that if you have a high power blender, like a Vitamix or a Ninja, you can turn any blended soup recipe into a Vitamix soup recipe without using the stove?
The friction of the blades is enough to heat the ingredients up in just a few minutes. Sure, it’s a little gimmicky. But it’s also a fun! It’s also great when there isn’t room on your stovetop, when your kitchen is being remodeled, or when you just don’t feel like washing a separate appliance.
To make soup in your Vitamix, add all of the ingredients to the blender container. Place the top on, leaving the vent open to steam can escape. Start at the lowest speed and then increase the blending speed to the highest setting. Let it run for 5-6 minutes, or until you see steam coming off your soup.
Note that vitamix soups will be very creamy, so if you want to, you can add cooked rice, noodles, beans, or meat at the end for additional texture. Or just grab some crusty bread for dunking!
Stand blender versus immersion blender: which is best for soup?
Handheld blender are also great because they’re small and don’t take up much space on yoru counter or in your cabinets. That said, the blades are much smaller and the motors aren’t as powerful, so depending on your ingredients your soup might not be as smooth as it would be with a stand blender.
The differences are minor though!
When using an immersion blender, make sure the head of the blender is fully immersed in the soup before turning it on. Otherwise the soup can splatter everywhere and make a huge mess (and can potentially burn you!)
Here are 35 delicious blended soups to make in your Vitamix:
Curried butternut squash soup with shrimp
Butternut squash soup is common, but once curry and shrimp are added, this dish is anything but ordinary! This is a tried and true recipe that my family has made for years.
Since the ingredients in this soup are so simple, using the highest quality ingredients you can will give you the best flavors. Although any variety of whole, peeled tomatoes will result in a delicious soup, I really love it with San Marzano tomatoes, which are sweeter and less acidic than other varieties.[br] Goat cheese can vary in flavor pretty drastically from brand to brand – some are much stronger and more “goat-y” than others. To account for this, start with just one ounce of cheese, then stir in more to taste.
Despite being relatively low in fat, this soup is incredibly rich and hearty – you don’t need to add much to turn it into a meal! Serve it simply with a piece of crust baguette or, my favorite, pretzel goldfish. A side of steamed broccoli rabe keeps things tasting light and fresh (and it’s delicious dunked into the cheesy broth.) Don’t be tempted to dump the cheese in all at once; if it isn’t added slowly it will bind together into a huge congealed mass instead of melting into the soup. Also, steer clear of pre-shredded cheese. It’s coated with starch and won’t melt right at all. I like Cabot 50% Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar.
This creamy sweet potato soup, which gets sweetness from apples spice from chipotle peppers and fresh ginger, is a great source of Vitamins A and C. It’s also perfect for dunking – try it with cheese quesadillas for a warm winter meal. Adapted from Food + Wine Magazine .
Creamy Tomato Soup with White Beans and grilled cheese sandwiches for dunking, is a warm comforting pot of that classic childhood favorite! The addition of white beans make it a protein rich, well-rounded hearty vegetarian meal.
This simple, delicious and nutritious Wild Garlic Soup has a gentle garlicky flavour. It is made with freshly foraged pungent wild garlic leaves (a.k.a ramson), potatoes, onions and Homemade Vegetable Stock.
Ezogelin Corbasi (Ezogelin Soup) is a spicy and buttery legume soup made with lentils, bulgur, rice, stock, and tomato paste. This hearty and absolutely delicious soup is a Turkish cuisine favorite, especially during the cold winter days. And the good news is that it is quite an effortless recipe and takes no time to prepare
This Loaded Pierogi Soup is a delicious and healthy Ukrainian soup with all the flavors of loaded pierogies! Bacon, potatoes, cheddar cheese, cabbage, fried onions and sour cream are combined to create a creamy blended soup that's hearty enough for a meal!
