If you want to look like an expert chef in front of guests, use your blender to make soup. It’s especially good for cold soups like gazpacho soups of various kinds because you can add in chunky ingredients like corn or watermelon. It’s also excellent for squash-based soups because it breaks down this thick, stringy food into a smooth consistency. You can use your blender to make tasty carrot soups, too, by simply adding tons of boiled, chilled carrots and other ingredients like olive oil and spices. If you have an excess of any farmers market vegetables you don’t know what to do with, experiment with your blender in making cold soups.
