    Chilled Peach Soup (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Fruit soups offer a perfect way to beat the summer heat, make use of delicious, abundant summer fruit, and turn a few corners in the kitchen, all at the same time. This recipe turns peaches, wine, cinnamon, nutmeg, yogurt, and cream into a delightful, aromatic soup that is sure to turn a few heads along with those corners.

    4 lbs. chopped peeled fresh peaches (organic, if possible)
    1 cup (8 ounces) whole milk plain yogurt (plus extra dollops as garnish)
    2 cups fresh heavy cream
    1 cup dry white wine
    1 cup peach schnapps
    ½ cup sugar
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint leaves
    ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    dash of curry powder (optional)
    black pepper, as desired
    Mint sprigs as garnish

    Directions:
    In a large mixing bowl, blend white wine, lemon juice, peach schnapps, sugar, mint leaves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cream until sugar is dissolved.

    Add peeled, sliced peaches, and gently move mixture into a saucepan. Reserve and dice an extra peach to add at the end.

    Cook in saucepan on medium heat for 15 minutes, until peaches are soft, making sure to stir often and lower heat as needed to avoid scalding the cream.

    Remove from heat when peaches are soft.

    Allow mixture to cool down before blending.

    Once the mixture is safely cool enough, add yogurt, and blend until completely smooth. Cover, and refrigerate until well-chilled and ready to serve. Add diced peaches before serving, with a dollop of yogurt, or whipped cream on top, with mint sprigs as garnish. Top with pepper or curry powder, as desired.

    This fast and delightfully fresh salad is a staple in my kitchen throughout the year, but particularly during the summer months I know affectionately as "tomato-heaven." You can mix it up by using cherry or plum tomatoes, or whatever tomatoes rate handy. The dressing offers a nice balance of tart and sweet; it’s a good one to keep on hand. Feel free to omit the chili flakes if y...

    Celiac.com 01/02/2014 - A smooth, rich, flavorful butternut squash soup is worth its weight in gold on a cold winter night; worth at least two quarts of your favorite ice cream, or possibly the cuddling of a warm spouse.
    This recipe adds one of my favorite sausages, Niman Ranch apple Gouda, for a welcome, extra hearty spin on this traditional classic soup.
