Snowy day + new Vitamix 7500 = Potato soup
  • ⅔ c. skim milk
  • 1 c. vegetable broth
  • 1 c. whole evaporated milk
  • 1 small onion (about 5 oz.)
  • ½ small stalk celery (about ½ oz.)
  • 19 oz. Idaho russet potatoes, scrubbed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional:
  • crumbled bacon
  • chives
  • shredded cheese
  1. First, add the liquids to the 64 oz. Vitamix container, as is always the suggestion.
  2. Add onion and celery, which I cut into chunks. (I doubt if that step is necessary, given the fact that I blended it all for 4 minutes.)
  3. Turn on power, starting at variable speed 1, and gradually increase to speed 8. Blend for 4 minutes, or until steam escapes from lid plug.
  4. Meanwhile, bake potatoes until tender. (I microwaved mine.)
  5. Cut off a chunk of potato (skin included) that weighs about 6 oz.
  6. Drop the chunk of potato through the lid plug while the Vitamix is running.
  7. Process for another minute.
  8. Meanwhile, run cold water over the remaining potatoes until they are cool enough to slip the skins off.
  9. Cut potatoes into large chunks.
  10. Turn off Vitamix while adding potatoes to the container.
  11. Pulse on variable speed 2 two or three times, until the soup is as chunky or smooth as desired. (I like mine chunky.)
  12. Pour into two bowls, garnishing with bacon, chives, and/or cheese.
