Fill a blender 2/3 full and puree soup in batches until smooth. Return to saucepan and warm through.

Using a blender, pulse garlic until finely minced. Add parsley and dill and pulse until finely minced. Add cheese, oil, lemon juice and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper and process until smooth.
