Cool Summer Soup Recipes – A Food Processor and 10 Minutes is All You Need

Summer is coming and so is the hot weather. Nobody likes to cook in the heat of summer. A really hot meal on a hot day is nearly as unpopular. It could be that a cool, simple to prepare summer soup is just what you need.

Below are 3 recipes for soups that can be made in your food processor or blender. If you have the ingredients on hand, none of them take more than 10 minutes to make. They are all tasty, nutritious, and really refreshing on a hot day. While the recipes all suggest you use a food processor, you can get very excellent results by using a blender or hand blender too.

These are all very simple recipes, so don’t be shy to modify them and get a taste that your whole family can delight in.

Here are the recipes.

Summer Vegetarian soup

This is fantastic tasting soup with a touch of Italy included. It is super simple to make and very healthy. It is particularly excellent on a hot summer day

an avocado – skin and pit removed of course

4 Roma tomatoes – they may not be quite juicy enough (see below)

Basil to taste (Thai basil is really excellent in this)

4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil


How simple is this soup? Simply throw everything into your food processor and mix until it is smooth. If you find that it is more like a smoothie than soup, simply add more liquid (or swap one of the Roma tomatoes for another more juicy variety). Pour into bowls, garnish as you wish (minced chives are nice) and delight in.

Sensational Salsa & Black Bean

This soup is a very simple soup that takes just a few minutes to prepare. It can be served hot or cold, but always benefits from being heated.
Roughly 4 servings


2 normal sized cans of black beans (any brand is OK, but try for low salt)

1 1/2 cups soup stock (Just use chicken, beef, or vegetable bullion)

1 cup of your favorite salsa (chunky makes a heartier soup)

1 teaspoon cumin (best to use fresh ground in the soup and you can sprinkle seeds on top too)

1/4 cup of sour cream

1-2 green onions chopped fine


Place the beans, salsa, cumin, and soup stock into a food processor (a blender is OK too). Puree the mixture until it is creamy in texture. Pour the mixture into a mid-sized pot and heat on low-medium until it is completely hot. This allows the flavours to merge. If you are going to serve it cold, go it to the fridge to cool off till it is time to eat. To eat it hot, simply serve into bowls and garnish with the onions and some of the sour cream.


Mangos are simply divine. They are fantastic as a fruit, mixed into drinks, added to salads. They also make a really excellent cool summer soup which is clarified below.


1 large RIPE mango (it will be soft, no squishy, to touch)

2 cups chicken soup stock (make your own or use bullion if you must)

1 TBSP lemon grass (available in most Asian markets, it looks like long
greenish reeds when you buy it)

1 TBSP ginger – Freshly chopped is best

Ground chili peppers to taste

1 cup yogurt (2% plain is best)

2 TBSP cilantro (chinese parsley) chopped fine


Chop mango and place in food processor. Mix briefly and then place in the ginger, lemon grass, chili and 1/2 cup of soup stock. Mix again till everything becomes very smooth. Go the soup into another bowl (be sure it is large enough) and mix in first the rest of the stock, and then the yogurt. This is best served cold, so place in fridge till you are ready to eat. Then place into bowls and serve with the cilantro as the garnish.

As the temperature starts to go up give these soups a try. They are all very simple and will add a new tasty and healthy dimension to your summer diet.
