Market Recipe: Creamy Chilled Shishito Pepper Soup

Posted 8/26/2017 10:40pm by Cheryl.

Today at Cobblestone Farmers Market, folks got an opportunity to sample this new recipe.  As much as we love the basic charred shishito peppers, it is great to have something else to do with them.  The response to the soup was overwhelmingly positive!  Give it a whirl -- it is a simple and easy thing to make -- and it takes very little time!

CREAMY CHILLED SHISHITO PEPPER SOUP

Based on a recipe by Sandi Gaertner in Fearless Dining (https://www.fearlessdining.com/shishito-pepper-soup/)

Prep Time:  10 mins; Cook Time:  15 mins; Total Time=25 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 pint shishito peppers washed, trim off stem ends and stems
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 medium-large tomato or 10 cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cups vegetable stock or water (I used water and added veggie bouillon)
  • 1 tablespoons +1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¾ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon cumin  

Instructions

In a frying pan, heat oil and garlic on high heat. Add peppers. Cook Shishito peppers until blisters appear on the skin (~5-7 minutes). Place peppers and all ingredients into a blender or Vitamix. (Note, if you do not use a Vitamix, make sure you roughly chop up your vegetables first.) Puree on medium speed for 30 seconds. Make sure peppers are pureed. Place in an airtight container. Chill in the refrigerator 3-4 hours. Serve chilled.
