I find it really easy to make a quick,healthy lunch with my Vitamix.
Today, being Monday, the fridge was looking a bit sad but I wanted something warm and healthy for lunch so I decided to make some soup. I often use my Vitamix blender for soup and I’d already made a lovely green smoothie for my breakfast so I was in Vitamix mode!
The great thing about the Vitamix is that there is very little preparation apart from washing the vegetables. Today I threw in enough water to cover the blades then added a carrot, a slice of red onion, 6 mini plum tomatoes, a slice of red pepper and a thin, peeled, slice of butternut squash. I also put in a grinding of black pepper, half an organic vegetable stock cube and a few stalks of thyme which was growing, handily, on the windowsill. I switched it on, took the speed up to 10 then onto high and let it run for 5 minutes. Once the steam was visible I switched off and added a handful of canned chickpeas then gave it another minute on high and poured it out. 10 minutes start to finish and I had a delicious, healthy soup.
Next time I may add some celery and possibly a small wedge of cabbage. I love to experiment and I haven’t had a disaster yet!
