My son just got his braces adjusted and in a panic to make him a lunch for school, I made the following soup in my vitamix with what I had on hand. The problem is that the soup is very bitter (raw leek I suspect). I usually sauté the leeks first but didn't have time this morning. If I cook it on the stove, will the bitter taste go away? What if I blended in a head of raw broccoli?
Here are my ingredients: 1 raw leek...stalk and all, 1 small avocado, 2 stalks of celery, About 8 cherry tomatoes, ½ cup of potato and garlic mash from a previous dinner, about 1 cup of ready made chicken broth.
The consistency is awesome. I just need to fix the bitter taste and nastiness of eating raw onions! Thanks for your suggestions.
