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.

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'm almost afraid to ask... nothing heated except the onion? So... the blending cooks the soup? Sorry I'm a newbie to blending soups.
Yes the blender will heat the soup by friction!! 5-7 minutes of blending on high will give you a nice hot soup. Remember on this recipe the sweet potato has been baked ahead of time.

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.
