You know how a good soup gets better over time? How its flavors deepen, its veggies just kind of become one with the soup, and the possibility for a quick and satisfying dinner is right at your fingertips? Well, this Summer Harvest Soup is no different.
So, what is it? Simply put, it’s a vegetable soup filled with summer’s best produce. I’m talking corn, summer squash, freshly cured yellow onions, sweet bell peppers, and spicy jalapeños. It’s the perfect way to use almost all of your Tucson CSA produce. Oh, and it tastes like chili. Between the cumin, chili powder, cayenne, and fresh jalapeño, this Summer Harvest Soup brings a good bit of spice (and heat) to the table. I know what you’re thinking: it’s approximately one billion degrees outside and WE DON’T NEED ANYMORE HEAT PLEASE AND THANK YOU. I get it! BUT, what if I said that you can eat this in the comfort of your air conditioned (swamp cooled?) house, joyously spooning a bowl of summer into your mouth as you watch the terrific monsoon outside your window? I convinced you, right?
