Chilled Summer Soup with Cucumber Salad + scenes from eckert’s dinner in the orchard!

Vegan, chilled summer soup with cucumber salad.

Hi. How are you?

I took a break for a hot minute.

Because the last two weeks have been crazy-awesome-insane.

The first seven days were spent in Minneapolis at #bossbabefestMSP – I told you a little about this here, and I’ll tell you more about it soon. Then I flew home, and as soon as I toucheddown I hit the pavement running {that’s how the saying goes, right?}. I catered an event for forty for a local start-up company. I shot a big spread for FEAST Magazine. It’s coming out in September, and I really love this one! And then, I prepared a meal for thirty in an orchard, all in the same week.

Eckert’s, a local farm that I have worked with in the past on my pop-ups asked me to come out to their orchard and put on a dinner for {30!!!!} local chefs and food influencers. I wanted to say no and go hide under a rock, but I said yes anyways. I knew right away what I wanted the table to look like. Simple, white, pops of color, mostly peach. And then quite quickly the menu took shape by utilizing what their land had to offer. I planned a 5-course menu in my regular plant-centric style, and asked Julia {friend/fellow STL blogger/food styling goddess} to come and make some of her killer short ribs to go with my polenta. She obliged, and the night was pure magic.

For the guests, the night started out with peach chamomile spritzes, a wagon ride through the farm, picking corn in the fields and eating it off the cob. Then a meal set between the orchard and the vineyard full of chilled summer soup, peach and green tomato salad, fresh sweet corn polenta, Julia’s short ribs, goat cheese cheesecake with hibiscus blackberries and plenty of Old Bakery Beer. For me and Julia, we ran around like crazy people trying to pull off a very put together facade and chill vibe. Fact though, we had no chill. But, I do think we actually pulled it off. Maybe?

My favorite dish of the evening was the chilled summer soup. Raw, vegan, blended up sungold tomatoes that tasted like candy, sweet corn fresh of the cob from the field I was standing in and yellow bell peppers to bring some earthiness to the bowl. Topped with a fresh, bright, cucumber salad for a little crunch and acid and umami.

This soup is a chop, set, blend, strain, chill situation. And really the set and strain are kind of optional. Any blender will do, but a really great one is key, which is why I’m so excited about today’s giveaway!

Wolf Gourmet has been so generous to send me a new high performance blender. And! Has been even more generous to gift another to one of you. This piece of equipment is a beast and undoubtedly my most favorite thing I own right now. Green smoothies and chilled summer soups for days you guys.

To win a high performance blender of your own, check it out here and let me know what color you want in the comments below. I will choose a winner at random on August 10 at noon Central, and notify them by email. Sorry folks, the blender will be sent to a United States shipping address only.

Chilled Summer Soup

Prep Time 30 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Total Time 35 mins
Serves 6 small bowls     adjust servings

Adapted from The Endless Meal. The color of this soup depends on the shades of the produce you use. I've had this turn out quite pale, and in this case bright yellow. If you want to deepen the color, you could use an orange bell pepper instead of a yellow one. I used sungold cherry tomatoes, but any yellow/orange tomato variety will work.

Ingredients

  • 3 ears sweet corn
  • 3 cups sungold tomatoes, halved {see notes, approx. 1 1/2 pounds}
  • 1 cup yellow bell pepper, diced medium
  • 1/2 cup white onion, diced medium
  • 1/4 cup highest quality olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, more to taste

Instructions

  1. Shuck the corn, and discard the husks. Shave off the kernels and milk the cob. You milk the cob running the back end of your blade down the cob to remove the yummy bits and juice remaining. Place the kernels and milked bits into a large mixing bowl. Then add the remaining ingredients to that. Combine well and allow the mixture to sit for about 30 minutes.
  2. In a high performance blender {or in a regular blender, but in small batches} blend the soup until completely smooth. Run the soup through a fine mesh sieve and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  3. Divide the soup into bowls and serve with the cucumber salad, a drizzle of EVOO and pinch of black pepper on top.

Cucumber Salad

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 1 min
Total Time 6 mins
Serves 1 cup     adjust servings

This salad is best made right before you top the soup, otherwise it will get a little too soggy and the colors will start to bleed. If you are going to make it, just to enjoy on it's own, it can be made ahead of time for sure!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cucumber, diced small
  • 1/2 cup red onion, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • pinch sea salt
  • pinch black pepper

Instructions

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Eat as is, or serve on top of the chilled summer soup.

    I mean, part of me wants the stainless steel because I’m like NEUTRAL but then a BIGGER part of me wants the red because I’m like REDDDDDD. Also I’d like to invite no one else to enter the contest at this point. It’s closed. You can all go home. Sorry. ;)

    Also, is it weird that I can almost taste this soup in my mouth as we speak? I can already totally imagine just how velvety and summery it is on the tongue. Gah. So lovely, Sherrie.

    Also also: you have been absolutely badassing it lately with all your pop-ups and catering events and it’s just so inspiring and makes me feel all sorts of happy for you.

    Ok. I’m leaving now. Remember: no one else enter.
    Much love!

Especially this: “Fact: we had no chill.” I hosted a dinner party for eight the other day and am pretty sure I felt that way exactly. Another fact: 8 friends < 30 chefs, sooooo kudos times a factor of 1000. Love seeing your work unfold in these gorgeous outside places and this soup sounds amazing. <3

    Dearest Wolf Gourmet Blender,

    How I wish to rhapsodize about thee? Oh beautiful blender! Now, I’m sure you’re use to lascivious glances, lingering touches and inspiring tied-tongues. I can’t say you won’t receive such treatment in my kitchen, but I do so solemnly swear you shall be treated like the natural wonder that you are.

    You’ve gotta be prepared though, you will, indeed, be the main attraction — my kitchen and appliances are pretty old, grumpy and generally temperamental. For instance, my last newest addition was a coffee maker that hisses, burps, grumbles and possesses a hot plate that doesn’t get hot — he’s pretty grim, all in all. So be prepared for lots of gawking and jealousy. And lastly is this, I don’t have a blender :O — you’re not replacing anything, yep, you heard me. No blender. So I’m gonna blender you till I’m all blendered out and then we’ll blend some more. Truthfully, you’ll probably need a vacation by the end of week two and wished you’d gone home to one of these other lovely contestants.

    That’s the long and short of it, Wolf. Hope to see you around these parts some day, my door is always open. Feel free to drop by anytime you want.

    (Okay, I got that out of my system. Heh. Thank you for the stellar recipes Sherrie, they make my home a happy one. And congrats to one of these lovely contestants and their new blender :D No, seriously. I think this blender is worth more than my car? This one is going up on my vision board for sure. Also, stainless steel — come to mama!)

    What a fun giveaway! Can’t go wrong with silver ;)

    LOVE this recipe. I don’t usually gravitate toward chilled soups but something about that amazing color and the perfect little cucumber salad really speaks to me. And by “speaks to me” I mean wishing with all my might I could dive right into that picture with my soup spoon! Will definitely be giving this recipe a whirl this week. Thanks!!

    You are awesome Sherrie <3

    Popped in because your soup looked delicious and found myself in the middle of a giveaway. Cool! Stainless steel would be my preference. And a question, must we use blenders or can we also use food processors for that final step?

      Hi Lanie, this recipe requires a blender to get it real smooth. I’m not sure a food processor {meant to dice/chop finely, not blend} would be adequate enough. You could try though, but be sure to run it through a fine sieve prior to chilling and serving.
