Blendtec Southwest Soup

The day we got our Blendtec, we had to make soup for dinner because we just couldn’t believe you could take raw veggies and a blender would turn them into a cooked, smooth, creamy soup. I mean, seriously, it makes no sense. But it does it! And it tastes so good!

The first time we made it, we weren’t yet on the paleo way of eating, so we added some black beans, corn, and cheese. And I’ll be honest, it was delicious! But it’s still good without. Really good.

We have enjoyed this soup both with and without the addition of the pork sausage, so it is both Whole30 and vegan friendly. This minestrone soup tastes even better than the endless soup from a certain chain restaurant, and you can make you own endless salad to go along with it.
