CHILL OUT: A cold or slightly chilled soup

Yanditswe: 08-05-2015

Once you’ve tasted the flavor of these cold soups, you’ll wonder why anyone cooks them at all
When there’s a chill in the air, nothing can beat a big bowl of soup to warm both body and soul. However, when the mercury is on the plus side, soup is often the last thing on a person’s mind. But it’s about time that hellofood.rw changed that.
Think about it for a moment, when it’s cold outside, soups have the power to warm us up so if the weather were warm and sunny, wouldn’t they be able to do the opposite? Absolutely. A cold or slightly chilled soup can act as your own personal air conditioner, cooling and refreshing you completely.

Here is the way you can prepare:

Fire-Roasted Tomato Soup with Basil Oil and Goat Cheese:
1 lb (500 g) Roma tomatoes, grilled over medium heat until blackened and blistered
1 leek, white part only, cut in half, rinsed and roughly chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 cerely stalks, roughly chopped
3 green onions, roughly chopped
4 fresh thyme sprigs, leaves removed and stems discarded
¼ cup (60 ml) fresh basil leaves
4 cups (1 l) tomato juice
½ cup (125 ml) whipping cream
Basil Oil:
1 cup (250 ml) basil leaves
¾ cup (175 ml) extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, soft goat cheese, for garnish

Directions:
Roughly chop grilled tomatoes and combine them with the leek, garlic, celery, onions, thyme and basil in a blender and process until smooth. In a large pot, combine mixture with tomato juice and whipping cream, stirring to mix. If a smoother consistency is desired, process soup again using an immersion blender? Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Basil Oil:
Combine basil and oil in a food processor and process for 1 minute. Pour mixture through a fine sieve, pressing on basil leaves with the back of a spatula to remove any oil; discard solids. Place oil in a resealable jar and refrigerate until ready to use.
