Tips & Techniques Equip & Tools Pureeing Soups with an Immersion Blender
Ideal for pureeing soups, an immersion blender (also known as a stick blender) is equipped with a blade that can be lowered directly into a pot filled with liquid and solid ingredients. This allows you to puree an entire batch of soup at once. An immersion blender incorporates more air into the mixture than a traditional blender, so it can be used to make frothy foam on cream soups. After use, the tool cleans up easily.

Here you'll find recipes for warming soups that can be quickly pureed with an immersion blender. From elegant wild mushroom to homey split pea, they're perfect for cold winter nights.
