I love soup! I love how simple, fast, easy and versatile it can be, and most importantly, how nourishing it is and feels to the body!
Soup is very easy to digest and doesn’t require a recipe, in fact, soup is a perfect way to utilize food left in your fridge when you think you have nothing left to eat. The times where I make soup out of random ingredients always turns out to be one of my favorite recipes.
Making a pot of soup is the perfect time to have fun and play around with new flavors and combinations. Even in the summer months when soup is not always the first thing I crave, I still manage to have some prepared and ready to eat in the fridge. Just because it is typically prepared warm, does not mean it has to be.
Tomato soup is one of my all time favorites, so when I discovered Gazpacho a few years ago, I fell in love all over again. This time with a refreshing spicy tone to the traditional tomato soup. Just like the hundreds of different types and varieties of tomato soups, Gazpacho has its uniqueness as well. After experimenting with many recipes, I decided to substitute my favorite heirloom yellow tomatoes as the base, to discover a unique, nutrient packed refreshing summer time soup!
