Chilled Carrot Soup: Dinner for $10
One thing we like on a hot and steamy night is an easy to make, filling but not too heavy chilled soup. Like this carrot soup with light sour cream and reduced-sodium chicken broth. And a pound of carrots, hopefully fresh from your local farmstand. This recipe just feels so healthy—in every way—and you can dress it up with a few leftovers or some bread with out much effort.
There’s another thing to like about this chilled carrot soup: It’s a make-ahead recipe that you can put together the night before and chill until serving time. In addition to a nice little summer meal when the heat has taken a bite out of your appetite, this soup is a great appetizer when entertaining. Just check “first course” off the list and get on to your grilling recipes.
The soup makes enough for five people, at a cost of only 81 cents per serving. So—go ahead—buy some French bread and really make this an economical dinner that really stretches.
Oh, another thing we like as much as chilled carrot soup on a hot and steamy night: air-conditioning.
