I’m sharing Three Chilled Summer Soup recipes with you. All totally gluten-free and vegan (and free of coconut and alliums too!). In-season produce is incredible. Allowed to grow in the open-air, naturally and grown in ideal conditions seasonal produce is packed full of flavour and is, really importantly, better for the environment.
Let’s make the most of seasonal produce! More sustainable than produce flown half way around the world or forced to grow in conditions that use huge amounts of water and energy.
Chilled Summer Soups – What’s So Great About Chilled Soup?
Seasonal produce is incredible for so many reasons. In the UK we don’t have a great deal of what other people would call ‘exotic’ produce. However, we do have the most amazing summer fruit and vegetables that are bursting with the most incredible flavour.

Three Chilled Summer Soups – Recipes
These are my Top Three Chilled Summer Soup Recipes. They are light, fragrant and utterly delicious. They are also super quick and amazingly easy. All the recipes can be eaten warm or chilled quickly and served cold.
#1. Three Chilled Summer Soups – Lettuce and Pea Soup
I am a huge fan of Lettuce and Pea Soup. It is so full of light, delicate fragrance. Peas can be a little sweet but the slight bitterness of the lettuce and the flavour of the herbs balances this soup perfectly.
#2. Three Chilled Summer Soups – Carrot and Lemon Soup
The wonderful deep orange of Carrot and Lemon Soup is a sight to behold. If you’ve ever had carrot and coriander soup – this soup is nothing like that. The lemon elevates the flavour of the carrots to another level. Divine.
#3. Three Chilled Summer Soups – Watercress Soup
The peppery flavour and deep green colour are a perfect combination in Watercress Soup. Wonderful.
