8 Summer Soup Recipes To Prove Soup Isn't Just For Winter

Who says soup is just for the cold and wintry days? Here are 8 delicious soup recipes you'll want to slurp down, even in the dead of summer.

It's a universal truth that soup is amazing — all year round.

Although great at warming you up when it's chilly outside, soup can also be the perfect companion for a hot summer day (or night!)

Not to mention soup can be incredibly healthy and easily made in batches, so you can eat it all week. Sounds like a win-win to me.

From chilled soups to lighter soups that won't weigh you down, here are 8 soup recipes that just can't wait for winter.
