1. Roasted Tomato Soup

Roasted Tomato Soup

Quite possibly the most classic soup there is, but with a bit of an upgraded twist.

We’ve all devoured tomato soup in our youth, but this enhanced spin on a classic will have you falling head over heels all over again.

Ingredients

  • 1 tomato
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 5 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of thyme
  • 1 cup light cream
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 2 cups of chopped onion
  • 3 cups of vegetable broth

Step-by-Step Preparation

  • We’re going to start with the roasted flavor of the soup. Put the diced tomatoes and chopped whole tomato in a pan on 400 F in the oven. Bake for about a half-hour until you see small brown roast spots appearing on it. If you’re all about that roasted flavor, you can put your garlic and onions in here now as well.
  • If you didn’t roast the garlic and onions in the oven, toss it into a pan with a bit of butter and saute it up. Place your roasted tomatoes, thyme, and vegetable broth now. Stir in medium heat and add in your salt, olive oil, and black pepper.
  • Boil and then simmer for about ten minutes. Let sit before continuing.
  • Place the soup in your Vitamix, and blend on high for three to five minutes. Use a spoon to check for consistency. Add in cream, and pulse blend until imbued.
  • Return to heat for five minutes before serving.

The 5200 Vitamix blender offers some of the best power to really puree this soup.

Tomato soup lives or dies by how smooth and creamy it is, and half of the battle isn’t in the ingredients; it’s how well it’s blended.

Through variable speed controls and large batch functions, you can create some truly exquisite soup in this.

We all know how tomato coloring completely coats dinnerware and tupperware, but thankfully, the 5200 has a self-cleaning mode that erases al, residue. Like it was never even there.

Corn chowder is a comfort food unlike any other, but it’s often difficult to get the right consistency.

When you mix it up with some unexpected ingredients and transform it into Thai corn chowder, well, you’ve hit a corner of culinary bliss. Your Vitamix is going to take you there.

Ingredients

  • 1 can of corn (or 3 fresh ears)
  • ¼ cup of lime juice
  • ¼ cilantro
  • 2 sliced and peeled potatoes
  • 2 cups of coconut milk
  • 8 oz of medium shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 5 cups of water
  • 1 teaspoon of fish sauce

Step-by-Step Preparation

  • Add coconut milk, curry, lime juice, and cilantro.
  • Simmer for five more minutes before adding to your Vitamix. Add shrimp. Use a low pulse setting to gradually blend everything together until desired consistency (typically, you want to shoot for a creamy and even texture).
  • Add fish sauce once the soup is back on the burner. Simmer for five minutes before serving.

Chowder has a thicker consistency, so we’re not looking to absolutely obliterate everything.

The 7500 model comes with enough variable speeds to properly control the consistency and pulverization of the ingredients you put in.

There’s a bit of spice to thai corn chowder, so you’ll be ecstatic with the rapid action 30-second self-cleaning system to purge all the ingredients from the blender, and not flavor your next meal.

4. Sweet Potato Chipotle Soup

Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup

Nothing fits quite like mixing in the sweet with the spicy.

Chipotle is like a drop of fire, while the sweet potatoes give a familiar sense of childhood dishes.

Having this with a cold blended beverage from your Vitamix will be the perfect way to marry two different culinary worlds together (and keep the heat down depending on how well you handle your spice).

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 red apple, peeled and chopped

The A3500 unit doesn’t have the same puree power that the top-tier models do, but it gets the job done for a chunky, thick soup.

If you’re after a hearty meal more than a simple appetizer, the programmable timer and delicate power settings will help you achieve it.

One of our favorite perks of this unit is the easy-to-clean container with the ergonomic handle.

5. Potato Broccoli Soup

Bowl Of Soup

This one’s a personal favorite: potato and broccoli aren’t the most popular combination, but they certainly create a flavor unlike any other.

In this, the broccoli will be pureed into the soup to make it creamy, but we’re going to pulse it so you’re left with a bit of texture.

The great thing about this soup is that you can play with toppings; use whatever you like.

  • 4 cups vegetable stock

  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of pepper

  • Add diced potatoes and broccoli chopped broccoli. Boil for 35-40 minutes.
  • Toss in salt and pepper and taste – adjust as needed.
  • Pour soup into your Vitamix and add the milk. Top with something for a bit of texture if you’d like, and serve.

You could use the aforementioned A3500 unit for this, but since we don’t want to whip the broccoli into a paste, the E310 unit arguably does a better job.

The capacity is a bit lower at 48 oz, but that’s plenty to make a large batch of this fantastic soup and ensure restaurant-like quality and consistency throughout the entire dish.
