The daffodils raised their bright, cheerful heads a few weeks ago, giving us a brief glimpse of spring and things to come…and it looks like warm weather is finally on its way!
When you think of spring, what foods automatically come to mind? For me, it’s strawberries, rhubarb, and asparagus.
What could be more perfect to welcome spring than a rosy hued strawberry rhubarb soup? Mercy, the color alone is enough to put a smile on your face.
Delightfully tart-sweet and refreshing, it blurs the line between soup and dessert. So it’s perfect for a girls’ lunch – which is exactly when I plan to serve it.
Have you ever been to one of those parties? You know, the ones with the harried hostess? I have…been that hostess I mean. Anxious. Stressed. Rule #1 for hostesses: serving foods you prep or make the day before is key to enjoying yourself the day of. This is one of those foods my friends. Make it the day before, in under 20 minutes, then simply pour, garnish and serve on party day. How simple is that?
And as Ina Garten says “Food is not about impressing people, it’s about making them feel comfortable.” This pretty in pink soup definitely does that. Comforting. Simple. Elegant. Delicious.
This just might become your warm weather go-to soup, especially if you add a splash of Proseco, and perhaps a scoop of vanilla gelato…divine! Enjoy!
