summer vegetable soups
just made my last batch of butternut squash soup until fall... looking for tasty ideas using summer veggies. I have a thai carrot ginger I think I'll make next week, and just found a zuchinni garlic that looks good. I'm in a pureed soup kind of mood... but the real requirement is that it be non-dairy all veggie.
this is the zuchinni garlic...
this is quite good-might be too "winter" for you
Is fruit ok? I love this melon soup- very nice as a starter for brunch
How about a chick pea one? I made this once-loved it! but my husband not so much
This broccoli soup I bookmarked after a friend served it at a party. You could skip the parm garnish. Also the wholeliving site is really good.
Maybe an authentic gazpacho with the bread blended in and the whole works?
Another cold blender soup that's nice is avocado, cucumber, scallion, a little garlic, lime juice and whatever greens you have on hand.
Cream of asparagus made with almond milk
Red lentil with cardamom, ginger, tomato, leeks and chard.
Tortilla soup with crumbled grilled tempeh, corn and kale
Lightly simmered baby bok choy, shiitake, scallion, miso and tofu
Even though it's not that summery - wild rice soup with fresh dill, black pepper, pearl onions, and whatever's green and looks good at the farmer's market.
These are a few i have really liked, esp the tomato avocado one at the end
And this one is like an amazing hummus-y soup, just omit the feta garnish
And i've always preferred this carrot miso one served cold
