After that, puree it with an immersion blender or let it cool a bit before making smaller batches with the blender.
Coconut Milk: Some people like to add coconut milk or coconut cream to make the soup creamier. This is a great dairy-free option that creates a smoother consistency.
mix: We used a typical stand mixer for this recipe, but if you only have an immersion mixer, you can make it work. You need to find a large bowl or pot to mix all the ingredients together. Use your immersion blender to make the mixture nice and smooth.
