Vegan Blendtec Soup Recipe

One of the perks of owning a high powered blender the ability to make raw soup on demand. This vegan soup recipe can be made raw if you exclude the last two ingredients.

For a great blender cookbook, checkout a few top picks at Amazon.

Before purchasing my Blendtec Blender I watched many videos and read many reviews and so on. But, it was while seeing a live demo and tasting the soup made from the Blendtec did I decide to buy it.

I have used the Tortilla Soup Variation in the Blendtec Cookbook to come up with my own Vegan Blendtec Soup Recipe.

I love using the raw ingredients and this is so simple it is usually made by my young children. This soup recipe makes a quick lunch and I always have the ingredients on hand. For variety, you can add great toppings, such as avocado,  black olives, green onions, lime wedges, etc…

I have made this recipe only using a high powered blender. If you have a regular blender, please leave me a comment below how yours turned out.

Blendtec Soup Recipe

  • 1-2 medium sized tomatoes
  • 1/2 stalk celery
  • 4-6 baby carrots
  • 1 tablespoon dried diced onion (or 2 Tblsp fresh onion*)
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp garlic powder (or 1 garlic clove*)
  • 1 small ring of jalapeno (optional*)
  • 2 tablespoons Taco Seasonings
  • fresh ground pepper to taste (I use lemon pepper)
  • salt to taste
  • 2 cups hot water
  1. Place the above ingredients into your blender jar and blend very well. For Blendtec users touch the “soups” button and run one cycle.
  • one handful of tortilla chips
  • 1 can beans (pinto, black…whatever you like or have)
  1. Add tortilla chips and beans to the jar and pulse a time or two for the consistency you want your soup to be.
  2. Serve with extra tortilla chips.

For a raw vegan soup, omit the tortilla chips and beans.

*On a side note. I have found adding fresh onion and garlic and jalapenos make this soup quite spicy for little ones. That is why I use garlic and onion seasoning in my soup.

Some details around temperatures achieved by blending alone.  I was curious to know how much the blender actually increased the temperature of my soup, so I performed an experiment with water only.  Starting with 20 ounces of 70 degree F tap water,then blending at high speed for 90 second intervals and measuring the temperature after each 90 second cycle.  The following temperatures were recorded:

after 1.5 minutes – 95 deg F water, no visible steam

after 3 minutes – 134 deg F water, first visible steam

after 4.5 minutes – 162 deg F water, more visible steam

after 6 minutes – 184 deg F water, even more visible steam

after 7.5 minutes – 200 deg F water, lot’s of steam and the water level decreased by 1 ounces (19 ounces remaining)

after 9 minutes – 206 deg F water, lot’s of steam and the water level decreased by 2 ounces (18 ounces remaining)

This averages out to ~25 degree F increase per 1.5 minutes of blending at high speed, up to 200 deg F.  Knowing this is helpful if you have ingredients in your soup that need to reach a specified temperature.

By the way, this soup was my 700th blend. The Blendtec counts the cycles on a nice display counter. It helps keep track of all the healthy foods you are feeding your family. I am very pleased with my Blendtec. I recommend one for every family with a high-powered desire to feed themselves or their family well.
