2 top cold soups recipes, perfect for the summer!

If you’ve been following me for a little while you’ll know I love soups – I even share my favourite winter ones in this post. I find soups filling and nourishing, especially in the winter time. However, in the summer and especially in the current mini heat wave that we are having here in the UK, a hot soup could end up being torture unless you are looking a sweat to get rid of toxins or God knows what. Looking for fresh, lighter dishes but still nourishing and tasty I want to share with you today 2 excellent cold soups. You could enjoy them as a main course, a starter or even as a little nibble during an aperitif.

My top 5 favourite soup recipes /Mes 5 recettes de soupe préférées

🇬🇧 In those winter months, soups are back on the menu. In our household we have made it a tradition to have a soup every Sunday evening. We try to have our meals with the kids at the weekend and I find a good soup on a Sunday evening is a great way to balance things out if we indulged a bit otherwise. Our kids get probably 2 soup diners a week which – I am not going to lie – is not always welcomed with a smile but when they have fish & chips at school or pizza, I feel it’s my duty to bring the vegetables back on their plates. Our toddler is a soup lover which is so great, may this long last!
