When it's cold outside and there are hungry mouths to be fed, soup is just the thing to warm the cockles so to speak, but a bowl of steaming hot nourishing Vegetable Soup needs at the very least an hour to cook up.
However, when time is of the essence, a speedy No-Cook Blender Soup is the perfect way to serve a real nourishing meal as most of the ingredients are raw so the vitamin and mineral content is not cooked to death!
I had forgotten about this really refreshing and delicious Instant Soup that was being demonstrated at a Garden & Home Exhibition Show some years ago; obviously promoting a super-duper blender, which I did not buy as it was way over-priced.
So my good old food processor started the job today to chop up the veggies good and proper!
This is more of a method as one can use any kind of veggie that can be eaten raw, but this is what I used:
No-cook Blender Soup
- 2 Carrots
- Bunch of Spring Onions
- Couple of Celery stalks
- Nasturtium leaves
- Handful of young Kale
- Defrosted Baby Peas
- 1 Tomato
- Approx 1/2 cup Rolled Oats to thicken the soup
- 3 Cups hot Veggie Stock
- Paprika, Salt & Cayenne Pepper
Dice veggies roughly into smaller pieces, place into food processor or blender if your is a super-duper one.
Add hot Veggie Stock, Oats & seasoning & blend very well.
I made a bit of a mess as I tried adding the liquid to the food processor, but then popped it all into my trusted blender and my No-cook Blender Vegetable Soup was born, but needed more seasoning!
Served into soup bowls and popped into the microwave for about a minute to warm through and help the oats swell and thicken the soup, and it's time to sit down and enjoy a good nourishing soup loaded with vitamins and minerals!
It really was way more tasty than soup that's been cooked for hours!
