  3. Keep some Cashew & some tarragon for garnish and keep whole butter for later.

  4. Add rest of the ingredients to the pot and simmer until all vegetables are soft

  5. Add butter and bland it when it is hot. ( When it is hot it is easier to make a smoother pure)

  6. Adjust seasoning.

  7. Serve with lemon wedge.


  1. On this recipe I used sweet potatoes not only because it is a great binder so your soup doesn’t break, but also it help the soup to get a bright yellow color.

  2. I add the butter on the blending process, not when I sauté onion or boil the vegetables. It is because I wanted butter to emulsify in the soup so it does not curdle later on.

  3. If you are using blander to bland your soup keep the small cap out and cover the top with a kitchen towel otherwise you might need to clean the soup from entire kitchen ceiling. I was lucky I was in a professional kitchen when I have had that accident so I did not have to clean but I had couple burns on my hands & arms. So that you know 😉

It is not difficult making a good pureed soup but you need couple tricks to apply.

I hope you enjoy this beautiful soup…
