Chilled Curried Green Tomato Soup
from Bill at Kitchen Appliances and Recipes group

Here's an unusual soup to serve chilled at your next summer picnic. The recipe was given to me by my friend Victoria in Atlanta.

1 tablespoon olive oil
3 minced garlic cloves
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 large potato, peeled and cubed
4 large green tomatoes, peeled and cubed (about 2lbs.)
2 cups chicken stock
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup whipping cream
salt and pepper to taste
additional fresh mint for garnish


Heat oil over medium-low heat in a large saucepan. Add garlic, onion, and curry powder. Cook, stirring frequently, until onion is soft but not browned, about five minutes. Add tomatoes, potato, stock, cilantro, mint, and sugar. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 35 minutes.

Puree soup in batches in a blender or food processor (or use a stick blender). Return to saucepan and stir in cream. Let cool and season to taste with salt, pepper, and additional sugar if desired. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Taste and adjust seasonings before serving. Garnish with mint and/or cilantro leaves if desired. Serve cold.
