Is it okay to put uncooked white potatoes into a blender, and then blend them up with water, and then cook them in the microwave to make potato soup?

    Define “ok” please? What exactly is your question or what are you worried about?

    You are cutting the potato en little pieces and boiling them in water. Standard cooking technique.

    ...also putting potatoes in a blender often results in a blender full of something with the consistency and property of glue. One needs to be careful blending potatoes. A food processor on low might be a better choice Feb 5, 2023 at 14:40

    My biggest concern would be that blending them raw with a relatively small amount of water (what fits in the blender) will make a pitcher of wallpaper paste.

Yes it's OK. There may be some drawbacks to the method, such as how raw potatoes will behave in a blender and whether the results you get are what you want, but none of those make it not OK to try. Even if you believe that raw potatoes represent a serious health risk, which is debatable, a microwave is more than capable of cooking potatoes.


This recipe would definitely work, although you would want to stir the potatoes after every minute in the microwave because microwaves don't cook evenly. I would recommend adding some browned processed meat, and maybe try to put some small potato chunks in for texture. Also playing around with some fresh herbs would be interesting as well.
