Need a recipe for cold soupgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Kentlands : One Thread
I'm having trouble finding a recipe for a really nutritious, creamed or pureed, cold soup. Does anyone have any ideas, or a recipe they could post?

I don't have any recipes per se, but in this week's Washington Post Wednesday Food section, there was an article about soups. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A14038-2002May14.html should take you to it, if you look within the next 12 days. The woman's website, mentioned in the article, is http://www.soupsong.com and you can even sign up for her e-mail newsletter.
THe only good AND nutritious cold soups I know of are gazpacho and one I get at Indian restaurants, based with cucumber and yogurt. Invite me over!!--I'll help ya taste-test anything! :):)

Pay dirt! There are a number of possibilities for a nutritious and cold pureed soup at this site you found, Nancy. And it's a fascinating and fun site, too, with all of the soup trivia, soup jokes, etc. Thanks for the tip. I'm definitely bookmarking "soupsong."
I have been wondering, since I started looking at recipes for cold soups, just what qualifies as a "soup"? Some of the recipes I've found sound a lot like fruit smoothies. On the Ensure site, there's a recipe for a chilled raspberry soup that seems an awful lot like the Ensure fruit shake concoctions, except that it's served in a bowl, rather than a glass. But the weirdest, most adventuresome cold soup recipe I've seen has to be the "Lime-Cucumber Soup With a Kick" on the soupsong Web site and in the Washington Post article about the woman who has that site. Looks like it would be fun to serve as a prelude to Mexican food, if you like tequila.
