I wouldn't; a hand mixer just isn't going to puree, mince, or emulsify like a food processor will.

If you're making soup, and the recipe calls for pureeing it after it cooks, you can do that in a blender - you'll have to puree in batches, though. Make sure never to fill the blender more than one-quarter of the way up; if not allowed some head room, hot liquids have a tendency to blow the top off the blender once it's turned on and shower you with molten lava.

I use my food processor for a ton of stuff and think it was a great investment. But they do cost a bit of money - an alternative is to get a stick blender, also called an immersion blender. They're great for making soup, they clean up easily, and don't cost all that much. If you're thinking about getting one, make sure it plugs in - battery-powered ones don't do squat.

Alrighty. well i do have this thing where its like a food prossesor but you have to mix it by hand. Do you think that would work. i've never made a soup were i had to puree it. so i don't know exactly what i should do. Oh im making Butternut Squash soup. Im very excited to try it. Very Happy

Do you have a food mill? Is that what you're talking about? A food mill looks a little like a big funnel with a handle that pushes food through a grinder-like blade. If that's it, that'll work fine - it's actually designed specifically to puree and does a better job than a food processor. It just takes a little bit of effort is all.

I did all my soups in the blender before I got my food prossesor and never had a problem.
