HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
Cilantro is featured in dishes cooked everywhere from Spain to Mexico, the Middle East to South America. The fresh leafs are often sprinkled over the tops of dishes, and the root is used in Thailand to give that distinctly powerful flavor to local dishes. You may already know that cilantro is one of the main ingredients in the salsa at your favorite Mexican restaurant. This herb isn’t just a commonly-used leaf and seed ingredient found in many tasty and exotic recipes, it’s also a powerful natural cleansing agent. Cilantro has been effectively used to help remove heavy metals and other toxic agents from the body. The herb is a good source of minerals like potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure. Iron is essential for red blood cell production. It is also rich in many vital vitamins including folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin-A, beta carotene, vitamin-C that are essential for optimum health. Vitamin-C is a powerful natural antioxidant. Cilantro leaves provides 30% of daily recommended levels of vitamin-C.

Not sure why, but i followed the directions to a T.
I have the wild side jar with blend tec. Not sure if that matters. Hit the soup button once and the whole batch turned out foamy. Couldn’t eat it unfortunately. The flavor was there but because of the foam it made it unable to eat. Is their a reason it foams? I also have a refurbished blender.
Hi Kristina and WELCOME! Yes it can get foam due to the insoluble fiber in the carrots and tomato.. I usually use the soup button 2-3 times to get it nice and hot. Try adding a touch of oil, this should help with the foam (I use the Vega antioxidant oil, flax, avocado oil or EVOO). You can also try running it on low for 20-30 after to remove some often foam or you can scoop out some of it. If you add more ingredients at the end to make it chunky it will take some of it away as well. Hope that helps. HAPPY BLENDING!
Do u you make and sell soup seasonings already to use? Seasonings make the soup. As a single male I will usually have the basic ingredients in my fridge but having the spices is a real pain in the. I would buy them if you make them. James
Hey James! Just use taco seasoning, garlic salt, and either chicken or tomato bouillon for the vegetarian version. 🙂 HAPPY BLENDING!
I made this in my Blendtec using the wildside jar. Even with the larger capacity jar, I still had foam coming out the top, to the point of pushing the lid up and spilling over the side by the end of the second soup cycle, so don’t walk away from your blender! I followed the recipe with one exception: I omitted the tomato boullion because I couldn’t find it at my local grocery store. Also, I should clarify that I used 3 sweet peppers, I used Old El Paso 25% less sodium taco seasoning mix, and I used hot water. The soup has a great consistency, just slightly thickened. I had delicious garden fresh tomatoes that gave it great flavor, but I still had to salt and pepper it at the end (probably because of the missing tomato boullion!) From my 11 year old: “It’s okay, but it’s too smooth.” (She thought it needed beans.) From my 9 year old: “I like it, but can I have some hot sauce? Can I have more?” From my 6 year old: “I like it medium.” I agreed with my 9 year old, it could use a little hot sauce, but my other two don’t like spice, so we’ll just add it individually. I also think this will make a good cold soup when it’s hot outside. Definitely one I will make again to try some variations.
Hey Bonnie! Thx for the comment! I LOVE this soup, lost count how many times I made it. I’ve never had it overflow from foam, but yes I pay closer attention whenever my ingredients are near the top in the Blendtec (they recommend filling only 2/3 full). It’s probably foamy from the tomato. I definitely like it a little spicy and use hot sauce or jalapeño. 🙂 I almost always pulse in black beans, corn and tortilla chips. Sounds like you have it down to vary it for all the Little Babes! 🙂 xoxo
This is my new favorite recipe.
Annika we have been eating this soup (with minor variations) for YEARS! Glad you found it!! xoxo
Sweet Recipe & So easy to make Raw!
Very True! If you only use the SOUP button once with Blendtec (using cold water) it will stay at raw temperatures, and Vitamix only blend for about 1.5 minutes should be the same 🙂
