It’s hard to believe that just a few days ago it was so chilly that I was craving soup. Now it is toasty warm and summery and a hot soup is the last thing on my mind. Fortunately there is a soup for every season as we seem to go through several of them in a matter of days.
On our chilly spring day, I made this lovely celeriac leek soup. The reviews were mixed, but I followed the recipe exactly and give it high marks. The homemade croutons were the perfect finishing touch.
Along came our summery spring weather and I still wanted soup but thought I would try for the first time a chilled soup. The gazpacho recipes I reviewed just weren’t doing it for me and then I stumbled onto this alluring cucumber soup recipe on Cooking Light. While I definitely prefer hot soups overall, a nice chilled soup hits the spot on a warm summer day. Just make sure you build in enough prep time as this one won’t be ready in a jiffy.
So go ahead and bring whatever you got, Mother Nature. We got soup!
