Directions

Blend ingredients roughly in order listed for best results. Soup should be smooth, and warm if using a high-powered blender -- if not simply use warm to hot water.

This should take between 5-10 minutes from start to finish and thankfully (!) the finished product is extremely portable. Try a tumbler w/ lid or a mason jar on the go.

Makes 1 quart serving or 2 pint-sized ones.

Number of Servings: 1
