The Food Lab Turbo: No-Cook Blender Tomato Soup in Just 5 Minutes

Don't have a high-powered blender like me? Just make it combining two methods:

1) Take Kenji's ingredients
2) Cook them using ChefSteps' microwave tomato soup method

Did it this past weekend and loved it. Awesome, stuff. Thanks, Kenji!

Note: A reason to use the 15-minute stovetop version no one mentioned yet is yield: you can make two 28-ounce cans worth in a large dutch oven, given you blend in batches. We are big fans of Kenji's 15-minute version in our house (my five year old likes either Cambell's or Kenji's hehe) and this just made it so much easier to make the one can's worth that is ideal for our family.

The Trouble With Strawberry Ice Cream: How to Nail the Trickiest Dessert

This article is exactly what I needed after two years of ups and downs with strawberry ice cream. Once it came out amazing, once it came out bland, once it came out jammy, the inconsistencies go on.

Jeni's roasted strawberry buttermilk ice cream is really darn good. But sometimes you don't want tang, you just want strawberries and cream.

Looking forward to hitting up a farmer's market for some strawberries now.

The Subtle Secrets to Making the Best Ice Cream Mix-Ins

THANK YOU for a ratio of oil to chocolate! Max, have you tried Greater's? I love their ginormous chunks of chocolate. Anything going on with their ice cream that allows such huge chunks to happen?
