Chilled Zucchini Soup
🦀 With Dungeness Crab 🦀
Zucchini is a popular and bountiful summer crop loved for its mild flavor and culinary versatility. But, unfortunately, by itself, zucchini can be a bit boring. Enter crab, Dungeness crab…with its sweet, succulent, ocean-y taste. Here, shredded crabmeat in a lemony mayonnaise mixture pairs with the silky zucchini soup for a stunning summer potage.

Pretty Watermelon Gazpacho with Blackberries
watermelon cubes, grape tomatoes, micro cilantro, nasturtium whorls
edible flower petals, celery leaves, fruity olive oil
I purchased the obligatory feta cheese, tangy Bulgarian Feta to be exact, to garnish my watermelon gazpacho. But when it came time to plate my chilled soup, I thought watermelon + feta is way too predictable and the homogenous pale red soup needed some extra visual pizzazz. Additionally, I wanted to serve a soup that would appeal to my #glutenfreevegan friends… enter blackberries, grape tomatoes, and edible flowers.
The soup recipe is quite intriguing – a balance between sweet and savory -a summery marriage of juicy watermelon and red ripe tomatoes. Spicy green chile, cool cucumber and pungent red onion round out the flavors while my beloved vinagre de jerez is the spark that gives gazpacho its unique character. Good fruity olive oil adds a rich mouthfeel.
