Soup supper

  • t

I'm having 3 vegetarian couples over for a soup dinner. I want to make 2 soups one a peanut soup and need advice on what to make for the other soup. The peanut soup has coconut milk, tomatoes, red chiles and root veggies. I'd like a nice contrast but still have it compliment the peanut soup. TIA

      Would you prefer two hot soups, or a hot soup and a cold soup? If you're looking for a second hot soup, how about a clear broth with Asian accents? Maybe a ginger and lemon-grass broth, or a mushroom broth. Add crisp, colorful veggies (e.g. baby corn, julienned sweet peppers, bamboo shoots, dried fresh or canned exotic mushrooms, etc).

      Gazpacho might be a good choice for a cold soup. Or a cool cucumber soup with little or no dairy, if such a thing exists.

    2. I suggest vichyssoise. Easy, easy and oddly full of flavor for so few ingredients. You'll be contrasting with temperature AND texture. I've never tried a peanut soup, but I've always wanted to. Have you made this one before?

        1. Would split pea soup work? D.

          1. What about carrot ginger or sweetpotato ginger - both with go with a coconut based soup, yet not be redundant.
