Sunny Summer Squash with Lemon & Dill:
Mid-August. Plenty of Summer Squash — Zucchini, Yellow Squash. I don’t have a garden, but I picked up plenty of squash at a local farmer’s market. And also, some very green, refreshing dillweed.
And I have plenty of bowls in my life — Bowls and more bowls; so many sizes and shapes. Definitely time to make a light ‘summery’ soup.
The Food – Summer Squash Soup with Lemon & Dill:
A light summery soup; easy, straightforward. I sauteed some onion and garlic; then lots of yellow squash (diced a bit). Then a bit of chopped dillweed, some chicken stock (a bit of white wine). After simmering for a short while, I transferred half the mixture to a separate bowl, and pureed with a hand-held blender. I added the puree back to the main pot, added some cream (another short simmer) — And called it SOUP.
Creamy, and at the same time, chunky. Summer Squash Soup — I served with additional dill, and a squeeze of lemon.
The Pottery – Three Bowls, Three Artists:
Just for fun, I’m featuring the same Soup in three different Bowls….
Above — A favorite rimmed bowl made by Wisconsin Artist, Simon Levin — Beautifully wood fired! I certainly love the contrast of the Soup with the black rim!
Above — A lovely, ‘rice bowl’ made by Wisconsin Artist, Steve Rolf — A Korean Celadon glaze. I love the silkiness of the glaze, with the silky texture of the Soup.
Finally — For a ‘hearty’ look, I served the soup in one of my own Maasha Bowls — Stoneware with slips and ash glazes.
I can honestly say — Soup was tasty-delicious, and refreshing, in each bowl!!
Anyone have a garden full of squash? Anyone else have a favorite Summer Soup??
