based on a Vitamix recipe, can easily be adapted
3 cups veggie broth
1 tomato, halved
1 carrot, halved
1 rib celery, halved
1 small onion, cut into fourths
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1 small bell pepper, cubed
1 small wedge of cabbage
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. taco seasoning
1 cup thawed frozen corn
1 can black beans, drain and rinse
Place all soup ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
Select Variable 1
Turn machine on and quickly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
Blend for 5 - 6 minutes or until heavy steam escapes from the vented lid.
If adding optional ingredients, reduce speed to Variable 2....remove the lid plug.
At this point I add the beans and corn. Blend for an additional 10 seconds.
