Vitamix Users... Share your favorite recipes please!

Hello!

We have had ours for just a few months and we seriously use it daily for smoothies... but I'd like to start using it for meals more... do any of you use it for that? If so, please share your favorite recipes... soups, sauces, etc.!
Thank you!

Re: Vitamix Users... Share your favorite recipes please!

First of all let me start off by saying my 3 year old DD has a hard time eating (she does not like) food that has to much texture to it. S when I do not feel like fighting the fight I just put it in the vitamin. For the veggie marinara I just throw in whatever veggies I want to use usually carrots, celery, onions, garlic, broccoli and zucchini. Sometimes spinach, yellow squash, basil or cauliflower. I puree it and then add a can of tomatoes and if I want to thicken it up I use some tomato paste. I then put it over pasta in the pan and then warm it up that way.

The broccoli cheese soup I use veggie broth for the base. I steam lots of broccoli. I add 2/3 of the broccoli and some shredded cheddar cheese. Some onions, garlic, carrots and celery. I puree then I add some broccoli and leave it just a little chunky.

I obviously do not cook using recipes.
