So don’t want to be stuck having to transfer ladles of hot soup into & out of a blender? Then grab your handy immersion blender! In this case, we were winging our dinner, so the blender was handy and worked like a champ. However, when I make this at home, the immersion blender makes combining the cooked veggies into a silky soup a breeze.
Don’t have one? Well get your last-minute holiday gift requests in now! I am a big fan of two different immersion blenders I have had over the years. The first is the Braun Hand Blender with some handy attachments. This was my first immersion blender, and I have used it for everything from soups to whipped cream to chopped nuts.
The other version I have and love for more sturdy blending needs is the Cuisinart Smart Stick. It doesn’t have the attachments of the Braun blender, but it can withstand heartier vegetables like parsnips, sweet potatoes and turnips. It’s a grab, blend and done tool that is a staple in my kitchen.
Which tools do you use when blending hot soups or dishes like this Warming Celery & Potato Soup?
