Chilled Mango Soup
I know it sounds like a dessert soup, but it's not. Mangoes and papayas are regularly used in both savory and sweet dishes throughout Asia, and this chilled soup is a great example. It is a perfect summer dish.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 2–4
- 2 large mangoes, peeled, pitted, and chopped
- 1½ cups chilled chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
- 1 tablespoon dry sherry
- Salt and white pepper to taste
Place all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Adjust seasonings. This soup may be served immediately or refrigerated until needed. If you do refrigerate the soup, let it sit at room temperature for 10 minutes or so before serving to take some of the chill off.
