My cooking club theme this month was “Mini-Foods”, meaning miniature versions of your favorites. We had an excellent lineup including miniature gourmet sandwiches, pulled pork sliders, Martha Stewart’s mini mac and cheese, and lemon tartlets for dessert.

I read a tip about serving chilled summer soups in a shot glass, and wanted to give that a try. My last experience with cold summer soup was pre-blog, but my family probably still remembers the Watermelon Gazpacho disaster. I chose a completely different type of soup with this Cream of Zucchini recipe. I totally understand that cold soups aren’t for everyone, but this one is both visually appealing and refreshing. Shhhh – the creamy aspect was actually fat free sour cream! You can’t really drink it from the glass, but even if you have to take out a spoon it’s still a fun way to eat a healthy serving of vegetables.

  1. Mmmmm. Cream of zucchini. I love everything zucchini. And I really enjoy savory cold soups. Sweet ones not so much. Tom has tried the cold peach, strawberry, etc. on cruises but somehow that's more of a dessert.

  2. did you happen to taste it while it was warm?…just wondering if it was very different….

  3. The shot glass idea is awesome! You should pack up your glasses and the recipe and head to the zucchini festival in West Stockbridge in August. 😉

  4. Nanc- I actually didn't try it, I let it cool down before I added in the sour cream. Next time I will – zucchini season is young!
