    I purchased this machine to make soups without having to do any cooking preparation. I would also like to see more recepies that would meet this function.

    I have made this recipe a few years ago and it delicious. Although my recipe I added a carrot. What I did was I just threw everything into one big stock pot start to boil till it was tender and transferred it to my Blendtec. Adding cooked chicken at the very end is a great idea nnorman. You can also keep the base soup and add a different ingredient everyday and make everyday a different version. ;)

    We subbed brocolli for Califlower since we had a ton in our freezer from the garden- it was delish! Soup is bland though- added garlic and paprika for a smidge more flavor. Not as thick as the picture made it look- but overall very good and super easy!
