SUMMER SOUP: SWEET CORN GAZPACHO

This is a good soup.
Very very good!

I’ve always loved cold soups in the summer: I have my old favorite stand-bys but am always looking for something new. Gazpacho has been a favorite in our house for years…so I immediately looked at this one.
Corn gazpacho?
YES YES YES

I just happened to see this in the July issue of House Beautiful. It is a recipe from
Lulu Powers Food to Flowers

She has entertaining and food ideas (for entertaining) in the book and also each month in House Beautiful. This is definitely a keeper so I printed it out and have it in my recipe collection book!

 

 

Here are the vegetables you will need:

Woops….forgot the cucumber in this photo!

We like gazpacho kind of chunky…but you could definitely give this a longer whirl to make smoother.

Here is the recipe to print out:
