Barbara Kafka's Moroccan Tomato Soup by The Wednesday ChefChilled and veggie soups are all the rage for the summer, and and it's easy to see why: they're light, easy to prep and taste pretty darn good. Here are some veggie soups that caught my eye this week.
1. Barbara Kafka's Moroccan Tomato Soup- While reading The Wednesday Chef's tale of soup-making I couldn't help but smile. I, too have had a hard time creating soup with the heat (hence the lack of posts), but when there is some relief I quickly figure out what the next soup will be, gather up my ingredients and start cooking. Luckily for us, the WC had a break from the heat and was able to hop on her bike, locate some yummy tomatoes and get cooking. Her hearty (and I mean hearty) tomato soup is packed with spices (cayenne pepper and cumin), cilantro, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, and of course tomatoes.
2. Puree of Turnip Soup - I have yet to use turnips in a soup, but I'm thinking that is about to change, especially after reading about Julie Morris' Puree of Turnip Soup. Another simple one -- Morris added broth, potatoes, onions and turnips -- with an interesting addition (almond milk) that may also make an appearance in future soupy's.
3. Asparagus Soup- The beauty of this interesting-looking vegetable is that it is not only tasty (in my personal opinion), but it is also very versatile in soup. Food Junta's white asparagus soup -- inspired by recipe from Emeril Lagasse uses shallots, leeks, heavy cream and stock that is good to go in an hour.
