  • Remove from heat and cool for a minute or two
  • Scoop 1 cup into a blender and pulse until mostly smooth, pour into another bowl or pot
  • Continue in this manner until all the soup has been blended
  • (Blender tip – only pulse 1 cup at a time or the hot soup will explode in the blender; put the blender lid on tight but loosen the clear air “pour” vent slightly so the steam can escape)
