Soup knows how to chill in August. You just have to give it half a chance. So for the next four days we're going to feature a few cold soups you may want to put in rotation when the garden is giving and the temperatures hit their peak.
Carrot and ginger are a good team, on the order of, say, Fred and Ginger, and this soup, from photographer bsmccoy and a recipe from Guy Fieri, spices it up with garlic, thyme and black pepper. But it also has a mellow side, with yogurt and honey. He uses a chicken or vegetable stock as a base, and a potato to give it more heft.
On the flip side, this Kitchen Daily recipe for chilled creamy carrot-ginger soup keeps it simple, made with little more than the two main components plus buttermilk, water and salt. Either way, you'll have the sunniest-looking soup around, the better to keep you cool.
