A question about a recipe: Paul Bertolli's Cauliflower Soup

I have a question about step 3 on the recipe "Paul Bertolli's Cauliflower Soup" from Genius Recipes. It says:

"Working in batches, purée the soup in a blender to a very smooth, creamy consistency. Let the soup stand for 20 minutes. In this time it will thicken slightly."

What if I don't have a blender? Will a food processor work?

Love the idea of leaving some pieces of cauliflower intact, rather than having a completely smooth soup. I'd use the food processor for about half of the batch of soup

I also used an immersion blender, but was careful to leave some pieces of cauliflower intact for texture. Wonderful, comforting soup!

I used an immersion blender - lovely smooth results.

Hi, JJ! A food processor should work fine -- your soup may not be quite as smooth, but it should still be delicious.
