Golden Gazpacho

Yield: 6 servings (about 4 1/2 cups) This gazpacho is surprising in many ways. The brilliant color reminds you that tomatoes aren’t just red. If you are working with cherry tomatoes like we did for the SOL Food Festival, just add them whole to the mix and purée them in the food processor.  No chopping required. […]

Summer Corn Soup with Quinoa

Yield: 4 servings This soup is a great way to highlight summer corn, squash, and basil. With the quinoa added, it also provides a complete protein. A portion of the cooked corn can be puréed for a thicker soup, but I did not find this necessary. It thickens as it sits, so you may want to […]
