Seven soups every Saturday: no-cook soup recipes
My low-ceilinged kitchen with an oversized stove gets hot, hot, hot in the summer, and now that summer has arrived, I'm always looking for soups that can be made without heat. The slow cooker makes it possible to cook without getting cooked myself, but my absolute favorite appliance for summer soup-making is my food processor. In seconds, it turns any solid into a liquid, making it possible to create fabulous no-cook soups from almost anything I have on hand.
Seven no-cook soup recipes caught my eye this week:
White gazpacho, from Hedonia
Chilled tomato soup, 1969, from Eat Me Daily
Cold avocado, orange and lime soup, from La Tartine Gourmande
Cold black bean soup, from Mango & Tomato
Chilled ginger cantaloupe soup, from Pinch My Salt
Cucumber avocado soup, from Cooking with Amy
Strawberry gazpacho, from Blue Kitchen

In the photo, seven Chinese blue-and-white soup bowls, all the same size, with different patterns. I love finding new patterns when I visit Asian markets in other cities.
If you'd like to share photos of seven soup bowls from your kitchen -- or from a friend's house, or your parents' attic, or an antique shop, or a housewares store, or a school or restaurant -- I'd love to share those photos on Saturdays.
Here are the ground rules: send one photo, of seven soup bowls. The bowls must all be able to be used for eating soup (no mixing bowls or troughs, please). Send the largest file your camera will allow; I'll size it to fit. Make sure the photo is in focus (very important). Tell me whose bowls are in the photo, or where you took the picture. If you're a blogger, I'll link to your blog.
That's it. One photo, seven soup bowls. Email to lydia AT ninecooks DOT com.
