Rated 5 out of 5 by Devil from Sweet Potato soup in about 10 minutes. I just bought my Vitamix 6500 this afternoon. Brought it home. Now what? So, I looked online, found this soup recipe and made it in about 10 minutes. And it was GOOD. I did not use apple, but I did throw in a big handful of kale. Hilariously easy and quite palatable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mdlem from Deliciously Fresh I just made this soup in my 750. Turned out great! So fresh tasting!! I used Penzy's vegetable soup base instead of a boullion cube.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NicoleT from A Great Base Recipe My Vitamix arrived yesterday so I was anxious to try a simple recipe to get acquainted with the blender. The soup heated nicely at 6 minutes. Flavor was a bit bland and "carroty" for me as written. (I'm sure results and personal tastes will vary across the board). I added more sweet potato and onion. At the end - garnished with salt, pepper, pumpkin seeds and a teeny dash of cinnamon. I will make again and give two thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kinscherff from Super easy healthy and yummy! I love this soup super easy to make healthy and yummy to eat the Apple really alters the taste I like slightly less than half of a small apple. I also add a clove or two of garlic and sauté the garlic with the onions. I love this soup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kjacksr from Tasty Meal! The Vitamix 5300 worked so well with combining raw ingredients as well as cooked ingredients. It didn't require much prep time but the food tasted like it would've required an extensive amount of time in the kitchen. I followed the directions exactly with my Vitamix 5300 and it was amazing! I will definitely use this recipe in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mia T from Hey, it really does make soup! So far, I'd only made smoothies, and it's been well worth it. But I wanted a light lunch and I had all the ingredients, so I thought, let's try it. Wow! This was yummy! The soup came out so smooth and creamy, if I hadn't made it, I'd never have believed there was no cream in it.

Do I have to peel the sweet potato?
You do not have to peel the sweet potato. You can however bake in the peel, and scoop the insides out to add to the soup if desired.

Is baked sweet potato processed with or without the skin?
I put mine in with the skin and it turned out great.

I just order a series C vitamix with 64 ounce container. Are most recipes for soup for just one serving in which case is the container large enough to double the recipe?
Most recipes for soup are between 4 and 6 cups worth. Those at that level are not the best to double. If there are soups that are less than 4 cups yield than you should be able to double it easily.

I have a lot of food allergies - can I substitue bouillion cube and water can I use stock / broth in the soups, would it measure the same amount as the water (like in the sweet potato soup)? also can I substitute lactose free milk in place of soy milk?
You can substitute any stock for the bouillon cube and water. Use the water measurement for the stock. Yes you can substitute the lactose free milk for stock.

I'm almost afraid to ask... nothing heated except the onion? So... the blending cooks the soup? Sorry I'm a newbie to blending soups.
You've already baked the potato before it goes in the soup (this isn't covered in the recipe, but the ingredients refer to a baked sweet potato).

What does "until heavy steam escapes from the vented lid" mean in this recipe? How is the lid vented?
As the soup blends the friction the blade increases the heat in the soup forming steam. The steam escapes through the gaps that are manufactured between the lid plug and lid.

I was wondering if I could make this in the 40 oz. container?
If you are working with the S series 40 ounce container you will be able to blend the soup. You may need to heat the soup up on the stove a little to get it to your desired temperature.

Reheating the soups? If made ahead, any steps to eliminate or do differently? Thanks.
In this recipe there is nothing needed to be done differently to reheat.
