While many people think of soup as a cold weather food, it actually makes a delicious and healthy meal all throughout the year. But, you probably won’t want a warming spicy butternut squash soup in the heart of summer, and gazpacho won’t taste nearly as good if prepared with out-of-season tomatoes and peppers!
In addition to taste considerations, you’ll also find it’s much more economical to cook using fresh, seasonal vegetables. In the summer, this cookbook will provide you with unique ways to use the abundance of your garden harvest, or the bags full of vine-ripened tomatoes, sweet red peppers, and fresh zucchini from the local farmer’s market. You’ll find recipes for chilled avocado soup as well as warm summer soups packed with seasonal veggies. And in the coldest evenings of late December, you’ll find inspiring lentil and winter squash recipes that will warm your heart and soul. Best of all, every recipe in this book is vegetarian. You’ll even find vegetarian recipes for classics like clam chowder and chicken noodle soup!
