We definitely recommend adding cream to your soup as it adds a layer of richness. While it’s still good without any cream, we still recommend adding it. You can also use non-vegan cream or even milk! If you don’t have cream, you can add some butter instead.


While you can use a blender, we still recommend an immersion blender. Why? Well, because if you do use a blender, make sure to leave the soup to cool slightly as hot soup and blender usually don’t mix well. You will be making a bomb.
