If you’ve burned your mouth with soup enough times you’ll start to blow on your yogurt. It may be the only comfort food that soothes its own inflicted pain, giving a more literal meaning to the term bittersweet. Perhaps we should just avoid all the games and go for something just plain sweet—in temperament, not always taste. Cold soups are just as comforting as the hot ones, often times more so in the summertime. Here are a few places in New York City serving up tasty cold soups that with all the flavor and none of the unnecessary heat.
New York is getting hot. Really hot. And it's only mid-June. If you find yourself melting in the heat– on the sidewalk, in the subway, in your apartment that's lacking AC– and hungry to boot, this easy (and delicious) Gazpacho recipe will help cool you down. Gazpacho, the chilled, tomato-based vegetable soup that originated in Spain, is perfect for these sweltering days. Tomatoes are slowly coming into season so now is the time to hit the farmer's market and get "cooking" with a good cold bowl of soup. It's light and refreshing, but packed full of the good stuff. It pairs great with some fresh baked garlic bread and a cold beer. Here's to summer!
