Easy Blender Soup
If you're looking for something quick and easy to cook after a long day, which is both nourishing and tasty then look no further than this simple blender soup.
This is a creamy soup, flavoursome and filling and made in a high speed blender such as a Vitamix. The ingredients can be prepped a head of time, and left in a container/zip lock bag ready to be added to your blender (alternatively, blend then heat on the stove).
The carrots and squash are both great sources of beta-carotene, which is converted in the body into vitamin A, so is great for your immune system. It is also rich in fibre, which helps to keep the digestive system healthy too.

Recipe feeds 2 | Takes 5-10 minutes to prepare | Cooking time 6 minutes (in a high speed blender).
What You Need
1 carrot washed and chopped into chunks
2 – 3 florets of cauliflower, chopped into chunks
A small piece of squash/pumpkin deseeded and chopped into chunks
1 medium onion, diced
1 cloves of garlic
A thumb size of ginger
A small bunch of coriander, washed or 1/2 teaspoon of dried
A small piece of fresh chilli
1-2 teaspoons of tamari (fermented soya sauce)
1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon or half a cube of vegan stock
Cream of coconut block, small piece (grated) or a little creamy coconut milk
400 – 500ml of water (less water for a thicker soup, more for a thinner one)
1/2 teaspoon of seas salt and freshly ground black pepper – may need more or less depending on taste preference
Blender – a high speed one would work better, however a normal domestic blender will also work, but will take a little longer and need heating through on the stove.
How To Do It
- Pour your water into your blender, followed by all your ingredients.
- Start your blender on slow, then slowly increase to it’s maximum and leave to blend for approximately 6 minutes.
After 6 minutes check that you soup is piping hot, taste and add more salt and pepper if needed.
Notes: this recipe works well in a Vitamix type blender (or similar), however if your blender is not as powerful, blend the ingredients in two batches (so as not to damage your blender), then heat through in a pot on the stove.
