Tuesday Treat: Soup Days

by Nick

If you are cooking anything this time of year, I hope it’s soup.

Not only is it getting colder and soup always tastes good this time of year, but also some of my favorite soup ingredients are cheap and accessible right now. Butternut squash or pumpkin are two of my favorites.

Of course, it helps to have the right equipment to make soup making easier.

For my money, an immersion blender is about as good as it gets. Blended soups become so easy with this thing since you can blend it right in the pot that it cooks in! Also, stick blenders are much easier to clean than the standard variety.

So I’m giving away a few of them today!

Soup is On

Over the years I’ve cooked almost 40 different soup recipes on Macheesmo and a good number of them use some sort of blending method at some point.

One of my favorites at the moment is the black bean soup I made last week with crunchy tortilla sticks. It really helps to have a stick blender for that recipe.

Tuesday Treat Rules

Yes… astute readers may know that I’ve done this giveaway before for a Tuesday Treat over a year ago, but you probably didn’t win it so it’s worth doing again!

Just a reminder about the Tuesday Treat rules.

The whole idea behind these giveaways is that they are quick. This contest will close at 8PM PACIFIC time tonight (Tuesday) and I’ll pick THREE winners at random. That means that you have about 15 hours to sign up.

Unfortunately, I can’t ship internationally so just U.S. entries please.
