Iced Soup Recipes

7 posts in this topic

My dad calls them " iced" soups because " cold soup" sounds like a punishment. You know, the kid refuses to eat and can't have anything until he eats his soup? By the time he gives in, its cold? I guess that was before microwaves.

Anyway......my mom isn't doing to well. She can eat whatever she wants because she barely eats. She is in the hospital and thought cold iced soups would be nice. I am going to make her the one she used to make a cucumber and potato soup. If she goes home today, these are easy for my dad to fix for her as no cooking needed. But He has gotten proficient at re- heating in the microwave, lately.

I thought others might like some cold soups, too? Thanks

Here's what my dad sent. The butter doesn't make sense. Also, peel the cukes. They make it with the Kitchen Basics no added salt broth.

ICED CUCUMBER SOUP 6/4/2012

1 LARGE POTATO, PARED AND DICED

3 CANS CONDENSED CHICKEN BROTH

2 LARGE CUCUMBERS

2 LARGE LEAKS (1 CUP). We did not use.

1/4 CUP (1 AND 1/2 STICK) BUTTER OR MARGARINE

Cook potato in 2 cans of the chicken broth until very soft in a medium-size saucepan (about 15 minutes).

Pare cucumbers, cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds and slice thinly.

Saute cucumbers and leaks in butter or margarine until soft (about 5 minutes).

Add potatoes and broth and remaining can of broth. Bring to boil, lower temp and simmer 5 minutes, cool.

Pour some of the mix into a blender and whirl until smooth. Continue with remaining mix.

Put in a bowl, cover and chill (possibly 4 hrs).

Garnish with cucumber slices and chopped dill if desired ( we did not do).

Serve cold.

Cold soups for summer. Good idea, K.

Gazpacho

(I'm pretty sure I got this from the Barefoot Contessa's collection)

Serves: 4 - 6 servings

Ingredients

1 hothouse cucumber, halved and seeded, but not peeled

2 red bell peppers, cored and seeded

4 plum tomatoes

1 red onion

3 garlic cloves, minced

23 ounces tomato juice (3 cups)

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

1/4 cup good olive oil

1/2 tablespoon kosher salt

1 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Roughly chop the cucumbers, bell peppers, tomatoes, and red onions into 1-inch cubes. Put each vegetable separately into a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse until it is coarsely chopped. Do not overprocess!

After each vegetable is processed, combine them in a large bowl and add the garlic, tomato juice, vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix well and chill before serving. The longer gazpacho sits, the more the flavors develop.

One of my Dad's favories:

Can of condensed tomato soup heated or two cans of gluten-free non-condensed

Add thinly sliced sweet onion (in ring)

Add cream to taste

Chill

Add thinly sliced cuc's

Dollop with sour cream and chives.

Easy-peesy! :)

K, Can your Mom do dairy?

If so, this is

Kelli Bronski's Strawberry Soup

I think it would be yummy for breakfast or dessert too.

1 quart strawberries, hulled

1 cup vanilla yogurt

1/4 cup honey

1 cup half and half

Combine berries, yogurt and honey in a food processor.

Blend until smooth.

Pour in the half and half while blending until incorporated.

Serve chilled.

Yum! She can do dairy. She just can't do anything green ( unless it's a mint dessert). :D

Cukes are really white when you take the offensive green peel off.

    • I've been eating gluten for 4 weeks now, as recommended by my doctor, to test for Celiac. Today I got 'some' of my blood test results back, although not all... I have my biopsy test scheduled for tomorrow morning, but I don't know if I should go through with it or not if the other results are not back by morning (which would show a clear positive or negative)... The results I got so far have a few alarming numbers...

      My platelets are marked as High, being 484 x10^9/L but what I found more confusing was that my ESR is a Low 5mm (with average rate being 10 - 14)... 

      My Ferritin (Serum) is 36 ng/mL which I think is low(?)

      I'm no doctor, and I know that the best thing to do is ask a doctor, but I'm quite sure that if I go for my biopsy appointment tomorrow my specialist would insist on me taking it, even if the other results are not back by then. I'm sure it's not a pleasant experience and would like to avoid going through with it unless it is necessary. 

      Also, I took my blood test after eating gluten for only 3 weeks (since that was a week ago), and if my blood tests result as negative, I'm thinking about trying to keep eating gluten for another 4 weeks and test again then... if that comes positive, I'll then want to have the biopsy test done.

      What do you make of the above numbers? Any connections with celiac? Or with something else? 
    • The first two tests (at least in the US and most of the EU) have been replaced by the DGP tests (at the bottom) of GFinDC's list of celiac tests.  Not all celiacs test positive to the common Screening TTG.   The TTg is good and catches most and it was cheaper to run the best one (it is all about the money), but researchers realized they were not catching all celiacs.  Here is a link to the University of Chicago's celiac website.  When I was diagnosed three years ago, this site recommended just the TTg (as did the American GI Association).  Now they have expanded the list of celiac tests.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Luckily, my GI must have just attended a GI conference and he ordered the complete panel for me.  ($400). It paid off.  Only my DGP IGA was positive and the rest of the blood panel (including the popular TTG test) was negative.  My biopsies revealed some severe intestinal damage.  My new health provider only allows PCP/GP doctors to only order the TTG.  So, if I want the follow-up testing to see if I have improved or had a gluten exposure, I must go to my New GI.  Yep, it is all about the money!   Keep eating gluten and make sure your  GI takes four to six samples during the endoscopy.  Maintain copies of all your results.   Your symptoms?  Yes, there are over 300 celiac disease symptoms.  celiac disease does not just affect the gut, but mis-informed and those who do not keep up with the latest in medical, do not seem to know that!   Do not give up!  
    • It's great to hear from you, Nightsky.  Glad to also hear of your steady progress.  Living gluten free is definitely a learning process, and even the baby steps are times to celebrate.  Wish you all the luck in the world as you continue to heal for the glutenization.  
    • Hi Nicky, When you first go gluten-free your symptoms often do change.  Feeling better or worse is possible.  The healing process is a major change in our gut and that means a big change in the gut flora is likely,  which can cause symptoms by itself.  Additionally the immune system doesn't stop making antibodies on a dime.  the immune system keeps working  to defeat the gluten invaders until it is darn good and ready to take a break. You really shouldn't start the gluten-free diet until all testing is completed.  That includes a full celiac disease panel and an endoscopy with biopsy samples.  It's much easier to complete testing while still a gluten eater than it is to stop gluten and go  back on it for testing later.
    • Hi Kircket, Welcome to the forum! Yes, he could be wrong.  Not everyone passes the blood tests.  And they are just one part of the diagnostic process anyway, although an important one.   Did you have the complete celiac antibodies panel? Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA If you didn't have the full celiac disease antibodies test panel, I'd insist on getting it done.  There have been numerous people on the forum who tested positive on one antibody but not on others.
