TIPS:

  • Seek out the freshest, most flavorful produce at your farmers market or other source.
  • When pureeing hot soups in a blender, avoid splatters by replacing the lid with a folded kitchen towel held gently in place.
  • Choose a soup thickener based on your dietary goals and what's in your refrigerator. Options include Greek Yogurt, skim or soy milk, buttermilk, half and half, heavy cream, even leftover cooked rice.
  • Puree and freeze fruits at their peak to use all year in soups and other dishes.
  • Add vodka or gin to a strawberry or other fruit based soup to create a refreshing summer cocktail.
