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.

    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc.
