Cold strawberry soup

Recipe from: 11/1/2005 12:00:00 AM

Ingredients 7
Servings 4
Time 30


  • 300
    fresh, ripe strawberries, stems removed
  • 250
    rosé wine
  • 60
    cream (optional)
  • 5
    Sugar, for seasoning
  • 5
    freshly ground black pepper
  • 5
    balsamic reduction
  • 10
    fresh strawberries, chopped


1. Halve the strawberries and marinate overnight in the rosé. The next day, place the mixture in a saucepan and heat to boiling point. Reduce the temperature and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until slightly softened. Set aside to cool and then refrigerate until ice cold.

2. Purée the strawberries in a food processor until smooth and add the cream, if you're using it. Season with sugar and freshly ground black pepper.

3. To serve: Crush several ice cubes and place a spoonful of the crushed ice into chilled soup bowls. Spoon the soup into each one and drizzle with balsamic reduction. Garnish with chopped strawberries and serve.
Wine suggestion: The same rosé used to make the soup will be ideal.
