Shaili posted on 17 May

A lot of us think that soups are not meant for the summer months, but we’re here to bust that myth. A mix of chilled fruits and veggies make for the perfect soup, not just to beat the heat, but also satiate you while being light on the stomach. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?

Mint Gazpacho

This springy, invigorating soup, with a mix of mint and avocado and served with jeera namak para, is sure to transport you to cooler climes. For us, it seems like the perfect way to start your meal (it cleanses your palette). You’re sure to enjoy the burst of mint that adds that freshness to your day.

Tomato Cucumber Soup

The classic tomato soup gets a delicious summer makeover at the Kitchen Garden by Suzette. Known for its healthy food, they’ve given this a healthy twist, with the tomato as the main base, cucumber, a little bit of tabasco and pepper to help pack a punch. A great option if you’re looking for a quick meal, we think.
