There's no better antidote to a hot day in summer than a cool, light,
refreshing summer soup made with vegetables fresh from the garden or green
grocer. Chilled vegetable soups make the perfect starter to a summer dinner,
are satisfying enough to serve as a meal on their own as a light lunch, and
are perfect for picnics! All you need is a cooler to create a sensation.
This week we'll turn to peppery watercress and tasty courgettes
(zucchini), both of which provide a delicate green color and a summery
flavor. You can add milk or cream to the watercress soup for a creamy
texture, and curry spices up the courgettes. Enjoy.
