Spiced Cauliflower Soup in the Froothie Evolve Blender


I love soups be it winter or summer, nothing beats a hearty bowl of comforting soup with some fresh crusty bread. Making soup is not  a difficult task but sometimes it creates lots of washing up, where you need to precook the vegetables in a pan, then transfer to a blender to blend and then back to the pan to heat up.

Wouldn't it be great if you could have a gadget that would steam, cook and blend the soup in the one device? Well there is, it's the brand new blender called the Froothie Evolve.


What is different about the Froothie Evolve?

It is a high speed blender with cook and steam functions. It is smartvoice and bluetooth activated allowing hands free blending together with a vacuum function which means zero oxidation so you can get perfect smoothies without any discolouration.

What are the features of the Froothie Evolve?

  • It has cooking blending functions for cooking smooth soup, cooking chunky soup, making sauces and curds.
  • It has basic blending functions for smoothies made with fruit and vegetables.
  • It has high speed blending functions for raw soup, nut milk and for crushing crush ice.
  • It has steaming and blending functions to make baby food, steamed vegetable dips and mashed vegetables and fruits.
  • It has two tempered glass jars with heating elements, one for cooking, steaming and blending and the other with vacuum blending functions. 
  • It has Bluetooth and voice activation and can be operated with a smart device making blending efficient and handsfree.
  • It has a motor power of 1400W for blending and 900W for cooking and a maximum blending power of 1800W.

My thoughts about the Froothie Evolve:

I love everything about the blender such as the glass jugs so that no plastic is coming in contact with my food. I also like the smart activation facility and that it steams, cooks and blends in one. However if you are looking for a lightweight compact blender this one is heavy duty powerful blender and the glass jugs are a little heavy. It is also fairly tall and does take up a fair bit of worktop space. Using the blender is not difficult but you do need to be tech savvy.

Coming back to my soup I made this delicious spicy cauliflower soup in the Froothie Evolve. I used fresh turmeric which gives the soup a delicious earth flavour. You can check my recipe below.
