When the daytime high leaves you feeling like the kitchen is the last place you want to be, a chilled soup is the perfect answer to “What’s for dinner?” A few months ago I was asked to participate in the Anyday Magic Chilled Soup Challenge. I have participated in past challenges, with themes like Healthy Pancakes, Ultimate Casserole, and Holiday Trifle. This challenge, however, was for a Chilled Soup.
Now, I know when people think of chilled soup, their immediate thought will probably go to Gazpacho. I’ll admit, that is the first place mine went too. But, I know there are many versions of tomato-based gazpacho soups out there, so I wanted to do something a little different. I decided to add a sweet-savoury spin to the gazpacho by using pineapple and mango, paired with onion, garlic, and pepper. The flavour combination is really good, and with the use of a food processor or blender, it takes only minutes to put together.
You can view my recipe for Creamy Pineapple Mango Gazpacho HERE.
There is a catch. I’m seeking votes to help bump my recipe into first place (long way to go, but worth a shot). Voting is open to Canadians until the end of July, and one voter will be chosen at random to win a beautiful stainless-steel cookware set.
Thank you so much for the consideration! I hope you enjoy this hot day with a cold soup!
