For saving some equipment, I was recently awarded a KitchenAid Hand Blender. So far, it has contributed to the production of hummous (ordinary, garlic, red pepper, and sun-dried tomato), mashed potatoes, and ice-blended drinks. Do readers have any other ideas for blended foods? My culinary skills are quite modest.
Given the deepening chill outside, I am hunting for recipes for thick creamy soups, possibly involving squash. Giving my abiding love of beans, blended bean recipes would also be appreciated.
