Recipe Notes

*if you do not have an immmersion blender, you can also puree the soup in a regular blender and then continue to finish the soup on the stove. If you choose this method, be sure to use a thermal control blender or allow the soup to cool before blending. Always be sure to consult your blender's instructions for pureeing soups or hot liquids.
