Blender Broccoli Cheese Soup

I got a fancy Vitamix blender for my birthday this year (thanks, honey), and I’m already just a little bit obsessed with it. I can’t believe what a nice texture it gives to smoothies and soups, and I’ve only used it for a couple days. Here’s the awesome and easy broccoli cheese soup I made for lunch today.

Vietnamese Bun with Barbecue Pork Tenderloin
