  • Has anyone tried this with cashew milk or almond milk instead of veggie broth?

    VAlerie on

  • Wondering why I wouldn’t use the ‘hot’ button?

    Mel on

  • I’ve also melted in a bar of cream cheese at the end. So good!

    Megen O. on

  • when referring to a "cup" size, can someone tell me what is the equivalent size in UK cup size. Fluid Oz or Milliliters would help.

    Alan Wisdom on

  • Because the soup would already be hot from cooking on the stove.

    snitch51 on

  • A cup in the US is equal to 8 fl oz

    capon on

  • 8 fluid oz equals 1 cup

    Country Ridge on

  • How many cups does this recipe make???

    Aloha on

  • 1 US Cup to 236 mL or 8 fluid oz.

  • How many cups does it make.

    Fran on

  • How many cups does this recipe make?

    Fran on

  • Is there a "hot" button on my blender?

    Manfred Mayer on

  • Hi Fran, this recipe makes 8 cups. For future reference, you can find this information in the "Nutritional Information" section above. Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • Some models have a "Soup" or "Hot" blend cycle. What model do you have?

    Blendtec on

  • non-healthy by adding cream or cream cheese??? ………either one would add not only flavor but calcium……..I find it very frustrating that people worry so much over things like this (unless their doctor tells them not to eat such things)……and vegan eating can be unhealthy unless you are super diligent about it

    jana on

  • http://lmgtfy.com/ is a great resource for this type of question

    Rick Obvious on

  • Used my Blendtec for the first time, made a smoothie, it started to smoke under the unit? Just received it 2 days ago. Return it. And the company is sending me another one. The smoothie was great.

    Teejenks on

  • No, just no. Your body doesn’t absorb the calcium you are talking about very well at all and dairy is proven to be bad for you. If you want calcium, eat some dark greens not soup.

    Jen on

  • Indeed creamy, spicy due to the leeks and very tasty! It was hit with my family & guests
    for dinner after Christmas!

    DaniGrace on

  • No, you don’t peel them (unless you want to!).

    Blendtec on

  • do you peel the potatoes…it doesn’t say

    Connie on

  • I thought one shouldn’t pour hot liquid to the Blendtec. But the instructions didn’t mention to let the soup cool before step #3. Is it alright to add soup to blend right away?

    Elsa on

  • I would guess 8 based on the fact that the information says the recipe makes 8 servings and the serving size is a Cup. Just a guess though.

    Tony Karais on

  • Yes, you can pour this hot liquid in but, you’re right, we recommend not putting boiling water right into the jar. The highest temperature the jar should be exposed to is 176°F (46°C) – and things get hotter as they blend.

    Blendtec on

  • what about whipped mash potateos

    Ken Lawson on

  • No dairy in this house. It is a medical issue. Also the amount of calcium in dairy is not that much, in the case of cream cheese or cream there is more fats.

    Martha McKinney Wisniewski on

  • The components in dairy milk and cheese outweigh the calcium intake. In fact, there have been some studies done recently that suggest a certain protein in dairy may be counter active with the absorption of the calcium in the body. Unfortunately, the dairy industry has also added sugar to dairy products, making the product a no-no for health conscience people. The ther issue is with trying to find information on dairy products. The industry has a death grip on health care professionals as well as advertisers. For example, 1 cup of almonds has 100 mg more calcium than 1 cup of milk, but my doctor never tells me to eat almonds instead of milk. lol

    Brandon Jalbert on

  • Mashed potatoes will not work in the blender because the blades release the starch which makes it more of a paste instead of the nice, fluffy, mashed potatoes you want.

    Blendtec on

  • 176F is 80C

    Daniel Tourigny on

  • I just bought the Blentec blender Series 570 because it has a "hot" button. Looking forward to make leek and potato soup which is a regular in our family, but is the "hot" cycle hot enough to cook the potatoes, or do I have to follow the above recipe in which case this heating blender would be nomore useful than a regular one ?

    Shabada on

  • Potato-Leek soup is a staple in this house. Especially in the cold Cleveland winter. If you want to make it non-healthy add a cup of heavy cream at the end of cooking time.
