Just saw the other thread on juicing veggies, and it really got me thinking about busting out the ol' Vitamix that I spent $400 on at the Del Mar fair.
I don't want to 'juice' veggies as the other post describes. I want to put the whole thing in there and blend it up, pulp and all. I basically have very little experience with this. We've made hot 'chicken tortilla soup' before, but that was pre-paleo and we'd change a few things now.
What are some slam dunk mixes you've made and/or ideas using a blender using whole vegetables?
I'm thinking stuff like carrots, celery, cabbage, tomatoes, squash, spinach, broccoli, maybe a pinch of serrano pepper, etc etc. add some salt and pepper. Could be a "V8" like drink, or even a soup base to add some grass fed beef chunks and sweet potatoes to (sorry couldn't resist - this question sounds way too vegan-ish)
(Side note: I don't mind a little fruit here and there mixed in, but I'm not really looking for fruit smoothie recipes :)
