  4. Lower the head to medium and let cook for 30 minutes. Periodically check by string to make sure noting is stuck to the bottom. 
    • Pro Tip:
      • If the soup is too thick add 1/4 cup water. 
      • If the soup is sticking to the bottom lower heat and do not dislodge what is at the bottom
  5. Continue to cook on medium heat until the carrots and tomatoes break down. 
  6. Once carrots and tomatoes break down, then use the immersion blender to breakdown the remaining pieces so the soup is the same consistency. 
  7. Continue to cook the soup on medium heat and add the 1-1.5 fresh dill – de-steamed and chopped.
