    This is a very thin soup but still delicious. I couldn't put the total amount of water into the mixing bowl because it would have been well above the maximum line. When I went to blend the soup after cooking liquid tiny amounts sprayed out of the top, despite turning it slowly to 9 as the recipe dictates, leaving red spots on my wall!! I put a cloth over the top to contain the splashes during the blend.
