  • Place the oil and 4 cups of the soup in a blender. Remove the center piece of the blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure the blender lid on the blender. Place a clean towel over the opening in the lid (to avoid splatters). Process until smooth. Return the pureed soup to the slow cooker; stir in the vinegar. Ladle the soup into bowls, and sprinkle evenly with the parsley.
