Seven soups every Saturday: strawberry soup recipes


Last weekend, my husband Ted and two neighborhood kids shoveled out and sifted last year's compost pile, which is enclosed on three sides by a low stone wall. In years past we must have dropped a bit of the "black gold" around the outside of the wall, because we noticed hundreds of strawberries growing there. Strawberries and asparagus are two of the first things to hit our local farmers markets in the Spring, and I love to combine them in salads. Each, on its own, also makes wonderful soup.

These seven strawberry soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Strawberry gazpacho, from Blue Kitchen

Chilled strawberry soup, from Macheesmo

Strawberry soup with mint and balsamic vinegar, from My French Kitchen

Sopa de fresa, from My Colombian Recipes

Spiced strawberry soup with mint cream, from eCurry

Strawberry rhubarb soup, from TasteFood

Strawberry soup with vanilla bean and milk sorbet, from Cannelle et Vanille

Find more delicious strawberry soup recipes with Food Blog Search. Come back every Saturday for seven soup recipes to enjoy any day of the week.


Melynda, of Mom's Sunday Cafe, shared seven of her soup bowls, with this lovely note: "The little chicken soup bowl started it! I was out thrifting and could not resist that little bowl. I thought if nothing else I would use it when my granddaughter comes to visit, those little handles help little hands keep it steady. And then your 7 bowls invitation came out and that did it, I began hunting while out thrifting for 6 more yet different bowls. It was fun to gather them up and it will be fun to see them on Soup Chick." Melynda, thanks -- it is fun!

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.

Love the bowls! I don't think I've ever had strawberry soup. Bet it is great for early summer.

Thanks for sharing the bowls, what a fun little project to complete. Strawberry soup, sounds intriguing, maybe I will have enough berries from my own yard to make some.

I really thought there was no way to top the garlic soups from last week but strawberries have to be the only ingredient that could do it for me. I've never had strawberry soup but it has to be divine. Can't wait to try it. Now...which one to choose?
