Thai Ginger Soup with Cashews & a Vitamix Pro 300 Giveaway

The first time I saw a Vitamix blender in action was also the day I bought my Pro 300 in December. I was with the girls, and as I was going to look at (pat) the Pro 300 for the tenth time that month, it so happened there was a live demonstration there.

Matt Stubbs, who was showing off the shiny machines, declared he was going to make three recipes for us. We had less than ten minutes to spare and I told him I did not need convincing: I wanted a Pro 300 and I was planning to buy one the following month.

As I was about to leave, the first recipe was already on the go, then the second, and the third. In less that 5 minutes, he had put together a green smoothie, strawberry ice cream and one of the best soups I have ever had.

What happened next? We ran to Crevette’s school, got back to John Lewis and bought the Pro 300. The kids were as excited as I was and kept begging me to make ice cream (it was early December).

The recipe I am sharing today is THAT soup, the Thai Ginger Soup with Cashews from the Vitamix demonstrator’s guide. It is to die for, and it takes less than 15 minutes between the time you get the veg out and the hot soup warming you up.
