Does anyone know any good cold soup recipes, other than gazpacho, cucumber, and vichyssoise?
I've found others that involve fruits, but most of those are too sweet and are more like desserts.
I tried some of the regular web sites, but plugging in "cold soup" doesn't seem to get very far except for the three I already know,,,Or maybe there aren't that many!
I just made a zucchini soup that could be either hot or cold. (we had it cold tonight). I used up a lot of my excess zucchini.
1 qt. chicken stock
3 lbs zucchini, peeled, quartered, and sliced (more 5-7/bs if you want it thick)
1 shallot ( I used onion)
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/4c fresh parsley
1 Tbsp fresh basil (1tsp dried basil)
1/2 tsp marjoram
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
salt/pepper to taste
thin zucchini sliced (optional for garnish)
Parm Cheese (optional for garnish)
Simmer broth, zucchini, and herbs about 20-25 minutes until the zucchini is tender.
Puree in blender or food proccesser in small patches. Add heavy cream and milk and puree again.
serve or chill 6-8 hours.
I separated the soup into to batches, to freeze for later. I didn't add the cream and milk to the freezer batch. Will add when serving later.

Try searching "chilled soup" on epicurious.com- I did, and got 118 results, so there are too many to list here! I only glanced at the first page, but there were a few tomato-based soups, an avocado and zuchinni soup, corn, beet, and one with beans. Seems like a good variety, just from the first page of results. I think using the keyword "chilled" makes a big difference, rather than using "cold"- so you might have better luck on other sites with that as well. Epicurious is great though- it's my go-to recipe site. cookinglight.com is great too. Good luck!
Thanks so much Leslie! I'd checked epicurious--it's my fave of those site---but using "chilled" makes alt he difference, and I never would have thought about that!
Today's NYT Sunday magazine also has a good-sounding one with yellow squash.....
