Kitchen. Cold soups, a good idea for summer

Soup is a dish that defies centuries and transcends social categories. On every table you will find a soup with a more or less sumptuous soup… but the soups which contain the finest foods are not necessarily the best… For example, a simple zucchini soup with coconut milk is a delight!

Good reasons to eat cold soup

– A cold soup is refreshing, most of the time low in calories, tasty…

– A cold soup allows you to eat vegetables without realizing it.

– A cold soup is thirst-quenching and allows you to rehydrate your body, which is still appreciable when the temperatures exceed peaks!

– A cold soup is convivial, because it is easily shared in verrines or bowls and you can decorate it according to your desires and what remains in the cupboards or in the refrigerator…

– A cold soup easily accompanies you during your travels, during your picnics, in an isothermal packaging (or by being frozen and letting it thaw during your walk)…
