Chicken Potato Spinach Soup Recipe - Cooks in a Vitamix!

Did you know that you can cook in a Vitamix?  Seriously, it can heat up soups and other recipes just by running its powerful motor.  Amazing!  From smoothies to soups I'm impressed.  One of the first recipes I tried after bring my Vitamix home was this soup. 


Chicken Potato Spinach Soup
Ingredients
1 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup chopped onion
3-4 medium red potatoes (or 3 russest potatoes) 14 1/2 oz total, baked, halved, cooled and divided
1/8 tsp dried rosemary
1 tbsp spinach, cooked or frozen, thawed
5 oz skinless, boneless chicken breast, cooked and diced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
*green onion for garnish

1. Place broth, milk, onion, two potatoes and rosemary into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
2. Select variable 1.
3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to variable 10, then to high.
4. Blend for 5 to 6 minutes or until heavy steam escaped from the vented lid.
5. Reduce speed to variable 3 and removed the lid plug.
6. Add spinach, one potato and chicken through the lid plug opening.
7. Blend an additional 5 to 10 seconds.
