I love the super silky texture you get from blending this soup in a high-speed blender, but a hand-blender is B+ level good as well. So, don't sweat the equipment side of things too much.

This is the latest in a long-running series of love letter recipes to simple pureed soups, including (get ready ;) carrot soupasparagus soupgreen souptomato soup, also this broccoli soup. What I'm saying is, blender soups forever.
