During the winter we enjoy hot soups because they help warm us up, but in the summer, we enjoy our food cold, the cooler the better. Many of us don’t even think about eating soup because it just makes us sweat, but there is such a thing as cold soup. The most popular cold soup is the gazpacho, but we like to expand our horizons, which is why we thought you would enjoy this recipe with sweet corn, basil, cashews and spinach, yum!

Chilled Cream of Basil Soup
This recipe is from With Food +Love and it’s a great recipe to make during the summer, especially if you have an herb garden. If you love basil, you know that it can get quite big after it rains, which is when it’s more fragrant. Basil is delicious on salads and as a garnish, but if you’ve ever had tomato basil soup, you know what it can do to the flavor. The best part of this recipe is that you can make as much or as little as you need. It has ingredients that you can grow yourself or you can easily find at a farmer’s market or grocery store. Plus, if you want fresh, delicious vegetables, the summer is the perfect time to take advantage of the local produce.
