Chilled Peach Soup Recipe

08.07.13 by Jackie

Baby Aria and I spent the day in our garden. She helped me trim the basil plants and gather ripe peaches in large baskets. Since the skin of this specific variety of peach is very fuzzy, they couldn't be eaten as is because it could have irritated her throat. So I blanched the fruit and peeled the skin. The skin unveiled a beautiful yellow flesh and the stone was easy to remove because the fruit was so ripe. They were very flavorful and sweet. 

I made syrup flavored with kaffir lime and ginger and poached the halved peaches for a few minutes. You could garnish the chilled peach soup with other small-sized fruits such as berries. I wanted to impart an Asian flair to the light snack, so I paired it with purple mangosteens. The result was spectacular.

Gazpacho Soup (Chilled Tomato Soup Recipe) Recipe

Gazpacho is a refreshing first course I  just had to make before the summer ended. The preparation is very easy. Cucumber, roasted red bell peppers, onions and fresh tomatoes are blended together. I flavored the cold soup with garlic, lemon, tarragon, a bit of agave nectar and extra-virgin olive oil. To provide a touch of saltiness, I topped the soup with oil-cured olives.

I served it chilled with "oeuf à la coque"-style quail eggs ("soft-boiled eggs" in English). Accompany it with lightly toasted noor thin bread from the folks at California Lavash and you'll have a truly fun summer dish!
