One of the wonders of the Vitamix is the machine’s ability to take raw ingredients and transform the minto steaming hot soup. Imagine taking the pantry staples for this soup, putting them in your Vitamix,and having dinner in the time it takes to set the table! The rest of our busy lives should be so easy.And because you are making the soup yourself, you can avoid the extra fat and sodium that would likely be in a canned soup.
