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.

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
