I dont have a vitamix, I use my Nija. I need to tweek the extra spicey stuff I added, its too strong. Also the vegetables I used are really tiny bits but chewy and get stuck in my teeth. I will have to do something to make this work better.

The Vitamix is a fantastic machine.  The only bad thing about it is the price which makes it not affordable for too many good folks out there.  

I have found that even my Vitamix doesn't do everything, though.  I have a small food processor that I use for some really thick things (like making peanut butter, grinding dates and nuts for no flour "pie crust", etc.) that are just plain too hard to dig out of the bottom of even the smaller Vm container.  


6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.

If you want a creamy broccoli soup that's really simple, try Gordon Ramsay's version:

This is so, so good! The secret to a silky-smooth puree is to blend the broccoli while it's still very hot. I love this, it's my favorite 'creamy' soup. I like it with a bit of pecorino and crispy walnuts on top


Thank you!!! HAVE TO TRY THIS!!

Has anyone tried this type of thing with sweet potatos and turkey broth?

http://www.cooks.com/recipe/f89wj0ru/cream-of-broccoli-soup-crock-pot.html

3 heads broccoli
1 lg onion
5 c turkey broth
1/2t pepper (white or black)
1/4 tsp sea salt
pinch nutmeg
2 cloves crushed garlic
4 finely chopped potatoes

Place all ingredients in crock. Cook on low for 8 hours. Whip, mash or run through food processor to cream soup.


Thinking about this one... changing turkey broth to chicken broth and potatoes to rutabagas and leaving out nutmeg....

then blend it ALL when done?

Not part of this discussion... but when my mom was sick, she would have some soup made from stock and oatmeal, then strain the oats out and drink the liquid..  Fixes many a belly when it is out of sorts..

As for me!! I would not like to eat any food that has been pulverized, It just seems overkill.  I use the Magic Bullet mixer for mixing, but prefere juice and its vitality.  If I had to eat veggies I would cook them.... BUT then I can see where 8 minutes of cooking /warming the veggies might keep them raw enough and still be ok.. I just my self do not like mushy foods.. unless it is Rice pudding.  Some day I will try it and see...


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I chop the stems and use them just as I would florets in any cooking - and sometimes cut them and eat them fresh as sticks...

well since the crock pot was full, I'm saving them for juicing tomorrow moring.

Also.. man I am going to look into one of those automatic peelers.. my thumb joints can't take all the peeling of rutabaga's and turnips anymore!

Well for me a super super taster.. i may have to throw this entire batch of soup out!  OMG.. I can barely take the smell and when I tasted it I wanted to upheaval!  Darn it....    Wasted all those ingredients and all that time making it.  I should have known.  oh well.. live and learn!

Before I throw it out, I will let hubby taste it.. maybe he will like it.

Goldie, do you not eat veggies?

Blue, sorry you didnt like it. Im a super taster too. I have a tough time getting veggies in.

How much mineral/vitamins are lost if you drink all the broth in a soup, but cook it for several hours in a crock pot boiling on low? That was the better tasting one I've done so far. I didnt use onion, but instead onion powder a little garlic powder and a little butter milk, with turkey broth, 3 stalks of broccoli and 1 head a cauliflower. It worked well enough to eat it all. Im about to do something again.

I also enjoyed a cup of rice, a stalk of broccoli, onion and some stir fry sauce. I steamed the broccoli, then chopped it real fine to add at the end, just long enough to coat it with the sauces.

There are some heat-sensitive vitamins - ones that are destroyed by heat.  I think Vitamin C is one...  You could Google to find out which ones specifically, etc.  

Minerals are not heat-sensitive, as far as I know, so any minerals that leach into the broth will be utilized by drinking the broth.
