Instructions

  • Slice all veggies and apple into equal size pieces.
  • Heat oil in medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, add onion, potato, carrots and apple. Add in crushed red pepper and salt/pepper to taste.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally until everything is slightly tender, yet still has a bite to it. Once you've reached this point, add in 1/2 the thyme and let cook for another minute or so.
  • Add the water, cover and allow to boil over med-high heat until everything is very soft. It's important to cook until very soft versus fork tender to ensure a smooth consistency.
  • Turn off the heat and allow to cool slightly in pan. Place everything in blender jar and secure the lid. Blend until smooth.
  • For Blendtec, press the SMOOTHIE button.
  • For Vitamix, Select VARIABLE Speed 1, turn the machine on and slowly increase to Speed 10/HIGH and blend for 60 seconds.
  • Stir in the rest of the thyme and add more salt/pepper if needed.
  • Pour into 4 individual bowls and garnish with paprika and thyme sprigs.
  • All done! Enjoy!! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments! :) Tag @BlenderBabes & #BlenderBabes
