While I love gorging on salads during the warmer months, I also find myself missing soup.
In doing some very brief websearches for “summer soup” I keep coming across gazpacho recipes…and apparently thousands of variations thereof. (To the point where I’m uncertain exactly what “gazpacho” means in the context of the recipes, other than “soup served cold.”)
I know there are many options beyond basic gazpacho, and the classic (though great!) vichyssoise.
What soups do you make when the weather is sweltering - care to share recipes or links?
Any tips/tricks/hints about preparation, serving, garnishing, or seasoning?
Unusual ingredients - or uses for the overflowing (overwhelming?) bounty of CSA boxes?
Can summer soups be frozen and then served once thawed?
And, er, um, do you have a beloved gazpacho recipe you’d care to share? (Because, after looking at some many, I’m thinking I need to venture into exploring those. )
