Do you eat soup in the summer?

I don't mean cold soups, because in my opinion, 'cold' and 'soup' are two words that are not meant to go together. Until recently, I'd have said soup was a no-no in the summer, but here in Spain, soup is eaten all year round. If it's too hot to bother and you can't face another salad or barbecue, a bowl of soup with crusty bread, followed by fruit, is a healthy, nutritious summer meal. What do you think, and what's your favourite soup? In summer, I enjoy watercress soup, chicken noodle soup and tomato and red pepper soup.

I'm not much of a soup eater myself, but I do enjoy it on the odd occasion! The time of year wouldn't influence me at all either and if I saw a soup on the menu that sounded good, I'd give it a try no matter how warm or cold the weather was. Personally my favourite soups are the oriental style broths like Tom Yum, sour soup and Miso. Chicken and sweet corn soup is great too. What I do love most of all though are noodle soups! I could eat Asian style noodle soups every day I reckon and never get bored with it.

I agree with you that 'cold' and 'soup' don't go together, soup should always be hot even if the weather is too. I like three particular soups when the temperatures are high, roasted red pepper with tomato and basil, fish soup without the fish, and tom yom soup. I think the latter is particularly good as clear spicy tastes are a change after all the salads. Although the fish soup without the fish features on most taverna menus oftentimes they don't actually make it when the weather is hot which is a shame as it is something very light and tasty.

I had soup last night. lol Of course it was in an air conditioned restaurant. I would say though that I make soup less in the summer. My favorite, hmmmm. Chili beef that Campbell's used to make. Can't find it any more. :-(
