Full of nutrition and totally delicious, these easy Summer Soup Recipes make a great light lunch or dinner. Made from garden fresh vegetables, they are perfect for the warmer months of spring and summer! Enjoy them by themselves or pair them with a salad or sandwich as part of a heartier meal.
I love soup and eat it all year long, even the filling comfort food varieties meant to be winter soups. It is an easy way to pack a lot of healthy ingredients into one bowl.
Is soup good in the summer?
Summer is the perfect time to serve a bowl of soup! Gardens are overflowing with vegetables and herbs. Using fresh produce allows their best flavors to shine which means less ingredients needed to make them taste super delicious.
If you just can’t stand the thought of a hearty, hot bowl in the middle of August, you’re in luck. These summer soup recipes are light and delicate and many of them are meant to served chilled.
What soup can be served cold?
Technically, most varieties can be served cold, if desired, but there are many traditional recipes that are meant to be served chilled. You might be familiar with Spanish Gazpacho, a chilled tomato based dish. You’ve probably also heard of French Vichyssoise, a cold potato leek recipe. There are plenty of other cold soup varieties from other cultures as well.
What to pair with soup
These soup recipes can easily stand on their own, but if you’re looking for a heartier meal try serving one of these tasty options alongside or topping off your bowl with some healthy extras.
- Garlic Toast
- Crusty Bread
- Avocado Toast
- Grilled Cheese Sandwich (Follow Your Heart and Field Roast are my fave vegan cheese brands)
