Make Puree Soup by Pureeing Vegetable Before Cooking?

99Jason | Mar 27, 2013 05:31 AM

I have a regular vegetable/bitter greens soup I make and a few times I've tried pureeing the cooked soup with an old hand blender I have. I'm thinking of buying a food processor and one factor that would make it worthwhile would be if it made my soup-making easier.

I'm mostly interested in making the whole process as time-efficient as possible, so wondering how good my results would be if I pureed the vegetables (Zuchinni, Collards, Carrots, Celery, Mushrooms) prior to cooking.

(I'm imagining this is the quickest way to make the meal, as I have to chop the veges anyway, and this way I don't have to buy (and use as a separate step) an immersion blender. Also, pouring the hot, cooked soup into the blender sounds cumbersome and messy.)
