Most people associate soups with autumn and winter. They think of soups as something warm and hearty and filling that will make you feel good on a cold day. But the truth is soups don’t have to be hot to be delicious, they can be served cold and taste just as delicious. You’re probably thinking “yeah, I’ve heard about gazpacho before, it’s nice, but it’s just one soup”. Yes, while gazpacho is delicious and probably the most famous cold soup out there, it’s not the only soup that’s served cold. There’s a whole world of cold soups out there ranging from ones that can be cooked in the crockpot or on the stove and served chilled to the raw soups that require no heat to be cooked. So yeah, welcome to the world of cold soups, I’ll be your guide.
