  1. This was a really nice alternative to gazpacho for a summer's day. Plenty of salt and pepper (more than you'd think) really improves this recipe.
  2. This was very refreshing. I used a pineapple orange juice mixture and it gave the soup a really great taste. Thanks for a wonderful and different recipe.
  3. Cold soup are just so great during the summer and this a very good one, especially for the carrot AND mango AND ginger fan I am! BF didn't like it as much, though ; he thought it tasted too much like carrot juice, which he doesn't care for. I have to say that I had to add extra water (200 ml in addition to the 300 ml of the recipe) to thinner the soup a bit, as it was really too thick for a soup! Maybe it had to do with the mangoes I used, I dont't know...
  4. A delightful tasting cold soup with an interesting taste. Slight changes made to recipe: I had no fresh orange so used a fresh peach juice, but diluted and garnished with black pepper and fresh parsley finely chopped. The green on the orange made it look GOOD and it tasted divine. Suggestion: Make the night before or early on the day needed. This soup needs to be really cooled before serving.


I'm an ex-pat NZer living in the tropical Top End of Australia. Which makes it a perfect place to make homemade bread and summer recipes all year around. I experiment on my 3 kids who have grown up trying new Zaar recipes every other day and they are thriving. I'm the lacto-ovo vegetarian in the family and somehow I got roped in to become a Forum Host here at Zaar. So check out the Vegetarian and Vegan Forum and feel free to join in whether you are a fully fledged vegan or someone who needs to cater for a vegetarian and has no idea where to start. Every year I try to do something a bit different to push the envelope a little bit. In 2005 I learned how to sail a dinghy; 2006's grand passion is mosaics. Check out my blog! Between raising three children, working almost fulltime and trying to pursue my hobbies...let's say that my time management skills have greatly improved over the years! I am also very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle. Essentially I'm finding that I'm getting back to the country lifestyle I enjoyed in my childhood even though these days I live in themiddle of suburbia. To this end I have started gardening although I am a total gardening virgin when it comes to gardening in a tropical climate. I also have a cookbook with a number of recipes you can make from scratch. Living clean and green is good for you AND cheaper!
