How To Make Gazpacho

Caption: Can a cold soup be as tasty as a hot stew? Let’s find out!

Have you ever heard of this cold Andalusian soup? It’s by far one of the most unique soups you can ever make because it’s COLD! We understand that most soups you try are hot, but this is something you’ve got to try!

But another important fact to add is that it’s also fairly easy to make. Just visit this link to see a recipe provided by the Food Network.

A few of the best tips we’ve found online for making the best Gazpacho you can from home is to use fresh, ripe tomatoes and to avoid making your vegetables too coarse when chopping them up. It’s also best to leave the finished dish in your fridge for as long as possible to let the flavors congeal properly.

How To Make Spicy Thai Lobster Soup

Now, this soup is perfect for those who want to vary the kind of seafood they may typically eat, and still enjoy a creamy soup without using regular milk and cheese.

This recipe requires removing lobster from the shell itself and then cooking it in hot vegetable oil. So this recipe will require more work but like the previous Gazpacho recipe, it’s worth it!

Other ingredients called for in this recipe that is bound to make this a new favorite of yours include lime, chile, mushrooms, and Asian blend spices.

How To Make Turtle Soup

This recipe calls for a very unusual ingredient: actual turtle meat! So even though this is a fairly popular, unique soup, finding this ingredient could be quite a challenge. We recommend asking your local butcher if he has any, or knows where to find some.

You will also need to make what’s called a “roux,” which is an ingredient made to thicken sauces and soups. All it requires is butter and flour though, and there are some stores that may even have the roux ready made for you.

Hard boiled eggs, sherry, marjoram, and thyme make up a few of the other ingredients of this unusual dish.
