Whether or not you enjoy Atlanta’s hot summer temperatures, it’s always nice to beat the heat for a few minutes. This week SOHO is serving up a chilled Southwestern-style gazpacho – one way to escape the summer sizzle. SOHO's gazpacho has just the right amount of spice and is topped with fresh avocado. We hope you’ll stop in for a cup or bowl soon.
If you’re in the mood to whip up a refreshing summer soup at home, why not consider Chef Joe’s cumber-pistachio soup? The soup is served cold, so there’s no need to turn on the stove on a hot day. Here’s the recipe:
Cucumber-Pistachio Soup (serves 4)
4 large cucumbers – peeled and seeded
1/2 cup toasted pistachios
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 lemons – juiced and seeded
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 cup cubed French bread
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup water
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Chill and serve. Enjoy!
