Do you like pureed soups? We found the best 13 pureed soups you can make at home!
Sometimes you want the comforting nourishment of a soup with a silky smooth texture.
The best way to achieve that is to puree the soup before serving.
Typically this is done with an immersion blender since it is not recommended to blend a hot soup in a blender due to heat, steam, and safety issues.
Vegetables are top of the list of soups that you can puree, mainly potato, cauliflower, tomato, sweet potatoes, beans, and carrots.
In this case, the soups like Salmorejo and Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheese Soup are thickened by the starch in the main vegetable, which focuses on the pureeing.
The seasonings in these recipes, especially in #13 need to be outstanding since those enjoying the soup will be paying full attention to the flavor and not the individual ingredients.
So following that rabbit trail, we have compiled 13 fantastic pureed soup recipes for your consideration.
