Our Chilled Soup Recipes Will Cool Down Your Summer Menu
Soup doesn't have to be hot in order to be delicious. These recipes prove that a chilled soup is exactly what your next seasonal dinner party needs.
Basic Chicken Soup
Everyone has their own favorite chicken soup recipe, but rarely have so few ingredients added up to so much comfort. This version has classic flavors and, thanks to a simplified method, cooks more quickly than traditional chicken soups (the dish is ready in a little over an hour). There's no need to make a separate stock; the vegetables and meat form their own satisfying broth.
Butternut Squash Soup with Coconut Milk and Ginger
Sweet roasted butternut squash tempers the heat of fresh ginger in this vegan soup. Coconut milk is swirled in for creaminess, while toasted squash seeds add a pleasing crunch.
Potato, Broccoli, and Cheddar Soup
Broccoli is used two ways in this kid-friendly dish: it's simmered until tender for the soup base and roasted for the garnish.
Normandy-Style Pork Stew
Inexpensive pork shoulder becomes meltingly tender after a low-and-slow braise in an elixir of dry cider and broth in this stew that's inspired by the pot roasts from the Basque region of Spain that marry pork, apples, and hard cider. This stew will bring the magic of fall right to your home kitchen.
Classic Beef Stew
Aromatic and satisfying, a comforting bowl of beef stew always hits the mark on extra chilly nights. Here, seared pieces of marbled beef simmer away until fall-apart-tender in broth, with punchy aromatics added to it like tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, red wine, and fire-roasted tomatoes for a subtle smokiness.
