Rib Sticking Cream of Potato Dill Soup

by Leanne Vogel (Healthful Pursuit) on February 8, 2011

The adventure of the pureed soups continue.

I love pureeing because:

  • Pureed foods share healthful commonalities with smoothies.
  • Pureed soups warm you up quickly.
  • Almost anything you puree tastes fantastic and is easy to make.
  • You can freeze pureed foods and eat them later.
  • I have a vitamix. I know, you can puree with other blenders, but the vitamix makes me want to just do it more.

I’m definitely a chowder fan, first and foremost… but potato soups definitely come a close second! This version sounds absolutely fantastic!

oh! this is perfect! i just broke my jaw and i have drink my meals for 6 weeks. purees are my best friends.

right now i’m loving anything with a lot of spice to it. i made a version of that hummus soup that’s circulating through blog-land yesterday and added a generous amount of sriricha. :)

Ouch! Well, you can have a lot of fun with pureed foods as well. Have you tried raw apple sauce? It was my favorite when I got my wisdom teeth removed – 1 apple (cored), 2 tbsp apple juice, 1/4 cup raspberries, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp honey or agave nectar? It’s delicious! I need to try that hummus soup recipe. It looks amazing!

Raw?! That would be perfect – I love apples, but don’t like them cooked so I don’t like regular apple sauce. Do you just put it in a blender? Thank you!!!!

I just posted my version of the hummus soup – I definitely recommend it. You can add anything to it and it would be delish (much like hummus :) ).

Yep raw! Just stick in the blender and eat it up! It’s still my favorite dessert to this day.

This was so delicious! Perfect for a quick dinner tonight, and my toddler loved it. The reason that it keeps me full for hours? Because I keep walking through the kitchen and taking drive-by bites. :) Yum!

this soup was amazing and a perfect comfort food for a cold winter out east! even my milk and gluten-loving boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed it :) I added some nutritional yeast and a little bit of garlic for a hint of cheesy-ness.

Great idea on adding nutritional yeast to the mix, I’ll have to give that a try! Glad you liked it, Misha :)

Just made this soup, and I had to post immediately about how good it is! This is about my third healthy soup I’ve attempted to make and only the first one to turn out good. Beyond good. The dill in this is so fantastic, fresh dill is a must, don’t substitute with dried if you can help it. After pureeing it’s thick and the texture is to die for. I topped mine with some grated cheddar cheese.
