Gazpacho is something I've tried to like, I just don't and I have no idea why. I love tomatoes.. dunno.
I do cold veggie soups, but find others seem to find them more palatable if I call them smoothies and serve them in glasses. For some reason folks here have a mental block on cold + soup lol
I toss some leftover cooked veggie, still cold from the fridge, with whatever aromatics I have on hand, a little green onion or something, some veggie broth or just water and ice and a little frozen fruit, depending on what kind of veg. I like frozen peaches with kale, frozen strawberries with spinach. I've also found out I can't make a cold soup I like at all from cauliflower or broccoli. If someone has a good recipe I'd love it if you shared it. And cold potato soup, that is one I will actually put in bowls. heh with a lot of green onions and also about half and half russets and sweet potatoes. If I don't have green onions, I hit it with a little cinnamon. I've also made a cold sweet potato soup with a little unsweetened coconut and just a pinch of nutmeg. I don't think I really set out or plan a cold veg soup, I just find whatever veggie leftovers I have, and go from there.
Great thread, BB
