Want to know why I love the internet, specifically twitter? Because within 5 minutes of asking the world if strawberry soup seemed weird, I had over 15 replies that pretty much said “no, go for it!”
The internet validates my crazy. Or, it’s just way easier to lie from behind a computer screen. Either way, strawberry soup is here because of it.
I’m honestly not sure what to call this. In fact, I just stared at my categories for 10 minutes trying to decide which one it fits into. Is it a snack? An appetizer? A dessert? Just a smoothie poured in a bowl? Not sure…kind of all of the above.
Regardless, it’s delicious. Especially, on 73 degree sunny spring days.
Strawberries were 3/$3.00 or $1.50 each. Seriously, that’s what the sign said. I’d love to know who didn’t realize that and take the third pint.
Nonetheless, there was a point this week in which we had 5 pints of strawberries in our fridge. Something had to be done.
Although similar to a smoothie, I usually (as in never) take the time to simmer my strawberries with orange zest and mint before blending them up. That’s the part of this soup that makes it stand out. It’s like a slightly sweet gazpacho.
I can’t imagine anything more refreshing as the start or finish to a summer (or March) meal.
What up now Mr. Punxsutawney I saw my shadow Phil?
