If you still have green tomatoes....

This was fast and fab. The only real task was prepping the tomatoes

Hot N' Spicy Green Tomato Soup with Crispy Pancetta Recipe : Emeril Lagasse : Recipes : Food Network

I skipped the pancetta. I also just added in chopped cilantro and chives to the soup. No oil.

It was great hot but also good cold.

I going to make it again this weekend and serve it cold with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt.

At the end of the season, I like to pickle green tomatoes using J. Grossinger's recipe for cucumber dill pickles-

Tomatoes are just turning here. I always have lots of green tomatoes at the end of the season. This soup sounds good! The DH makes a green tomato relish (not to my liking). I'll see if he'll tell me his recipe.

Jennyema,

As you know, Louisana is well known for its fried green tomatoes ... I had them many many years ago in New Orleans ... They were quite tasty.

In Madrid Capital, to date, last winter, a native New Orleanser, opened a lovely Bistro, where he specialises in Louisiana regional cuisine ... The fried green tomatoes were delectable.

Have lovely summer.
Margaux.

Interestingly, I read recently that fried green tomatoes originated in the Midwest and Northeast, since their growing seasons are much shorter than in the South: The Surprising Origins of Fried Green Tomatoes

We have lots of both red and green tomatoes right now. The soup sounds very interesting - I may try that while DH is out of town (for some odd reason, he won't try green tomatoes). I also have a recipe for a green tomato gratin that is delicious.
