Meryl- you can certainly put uncooked vegetables into the Vitamix and it will tackle them, but I suspect the reason many recipes advise to steam them is for better taste. When I first got my Vitamix I was so excited to make soups out of raw veggies…but then I realized something:
Soups made from raw veggies don’t taste very good. It tastes like salad run through a blender.
So I prefer to cook them first. Not because the machine couldn’t handle them uncooked, but for taste. Hope this helps!
