Slurpable Summer Soups
Posted on June 20, 2017 | General News
Winter may get all the soup and stew glory, but why not turn the market bounty of spring and summer into a vibrant meal-in-a-bowl? Get your spoons ready!
With the exciting arrival of shell peas, we think that pea soup deserves a bit of an image upgrade. Pea soup doesn't have to be a thin, tasteless, pale green mess! It can be vibrant and fresh like in this 'Possibly the Best Pea Soup' recipe featuring fresh shell peas, tarragon, and - of course - some half and half.
Have you sauteed, roasted, and grilled your way through the bundles and bundles of asparagus? Time to turn it into a creamy soup! This would be great paired with toasted baguette topped with mashed green garlic from market and a sprinkling of salt.
When it heats up, a cold soup like gazpacho works perfectly. Grab tomatoes, cucumbers, and green onions from market! Cooking tip: when melon season is upon us, make it again but add cubed watermelon on top of the gazpacho for delicious flavor and sweetness!
