How to Make Hot Soup in Blendtec Blenders

Written by Chef Austin | August 2, 2017


Making Hot Soup in a Blendtec Blender


This is one of the secrets of restaurant-quality soups: A high-powered blender. With Blendtec's 3 peak-horsepower motor, you can make velvety smooth potato leek soup and even heat up and cook soups in the blender, no stove required!

Chef Austin's Tips for Making Soup with a Blendtec: 

  • Want a more robust blended soup? Try roasting your vegetables beforehand. Easily roast off a variety of vegetables all at once in the oven; take a sheet tray and add chopped sweet potatoes, onions and celery, drizzle with olive oil and season with sea salt and cracked pepper. Cook at 425F until tender and toss in your Blendtec with some chicken stock.
  • Some soups can be made only using the blender. Vegetables that are eaten raw usually work best as a base: avocado, tomato, corn, peas, and asparagus all work great. 
  • Some vegetables need to be cooked first, not because they won't blend, but they will taste so much better and will not give your soup a "raw" taste. Saute, roast in the oven, or steam these kinds of vegetables before blending: onions, carrots, broccoli, celery, potatoes, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, pumpkin, beets, and cauliflower.

Chef Austin's Recommended Recipe

Cheddar Broccoli Soup

Serves: 3-4

4  Cups Broccoli Florets, Steamed
1  Cup Chicken Stock
1  Cup Half & Half
1⁄8  Tsp Fresh Ground Nutmeg
3oz Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
1oz Parmesan Cheese, Shredded
Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper, To Taste

Step 1
Set 1/2 cup of broccoli florets aside, add the rest of ingredients to the blender jar. Press the "Soup" preset on your Blendtec. If this preset is not available, blend on high speed for 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes 30 seconds, the longer you blend, the hotter the soup.

Step 2
Add reserved broccoli and use the pulse button 3-5 times to roughly chop the broccoli. Garnish with sour cream or croutons.
