Cumin and Coriander Seeds didn't break down in soup

recipe called for whole seeds and I followed in spite of my gut feeling that it wasn't a good idea soup is lentil with butternut squash and more will an immersion blender help? biting into seeds makes it inedible anyone? thanks so much

I use whole seeds all the time, but grind them in a mortar and pestle before adding them to the soup.

If you put the soup in a blender ir processor, you will get more effective breakdown of whole spices
With an immersion blender, they might pass by or between blades.
Or strain, remove the seeds, and put the others solids and liquids back together.
