If you saw my Blendtec Blender review post then you probably saw some of the delicious things I have been able to make with my Blendtec Blender including Broccoli Cheese Soup and Chocolate Mixed Nut Butter. Here is one of my favorite recipes that I’ve made so far and it is a new family favorite, too!
Easy Baked Potato Soup- (adapted from the Blendtec Fresh Blends Cookbook)
2 cups milk, warmed
1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons light sour cream
1 green onion, chopped (the recipe says trimmed and halved because the blender will chop it anyway but I chopped mine to reserve some to top my soup)
3 oz reduced fat cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
2 large Yukon Gold potatoes, baked or boiled
4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
Add milk, sour cream, 3/4 of the green onion, 2 oz of the cheddar cheese, salt, pepper, and 1 baked potato in the jar in the order listed. Secure lid. Select the SOUPS setting and blend. Add the second potato and 3 slices of bacon. Press PULSE 2-4 times to incorporate the new ingredients. Pour soup into bowls and sprinkle the top of the soup with the remaining 1 oz of shredded cheddar cheese. Add a dollop of sour cream in the center of the bowl. Top with remaining bacon crumbles and reserved green onion.
