This is a healthy and simple soup I whipped up for the Vitamix®. Can easily be made vegetarian or vegan by substituting vegetable broth and/or non-dairy milk. You can reserve some of the microwaved broccoli and potatoes and add them after blending if you like more substance to your soup. Enjoy!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; saute onion until translucent, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Spread potatoes and broccoli onto a microwave-safe plate. Cook in microwave until tender, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Place onion, potatoes, broccoli, milk, chicken broth, pepper, salt, ginger, and thyme in the Vitamix® or blender. Start on variable 1, slowly increase to variable 10, and end on high for 4 to 5 minutes. Serve hot.

Cook's Note:

This recipe was made specifically for the Vitamix(R) 5200 with the 64 ounce container. I cannot promise the outcome will be the same in a different blender.

I don't like Broccoli so I can't give this a 5 star rating. I made this for someone else who liked it. The Vitamix works great with this recipe. The only change I made was not use as much onion as it calls for. I just thought it would overpower the flavor of the Broccoli. Try it!! Read More

I followed the recipe but didn't like it at all. This recipe didn't have enough flavor. I would suggest first oven-roasting and seasoning the potatoes broccoli. Then add some other seasonings in the soup... but overall this just missed the mark. Read More

it was a great easy quick recipe with a surprisingly nice flavour (was a little weary of the broccoli and ginger together). I omitted the milk and just used more broth (chicken). Yummy! Read More
