While I love all that summer has to offer. Each and every year I eagerly anticipate its arrival, joyfully settle into its long sun-kissed days, and hold it tight as it slowly tumbles into Fall. And yet, I still find myself craving a good, warm soup.
In the cooler months, my soup pot works on overtime simmering great, hearty soups filled to the brim with lots of chunky, fresh meat and root vegetables... I can already hear them calling my name. And yet, loyal to the fleeting nature of our long and lazy, hot and humid Mediterranean summers, I make a concerted effort to silence their pull for there is much to love about a great summer soup!
Summer soups, in my humble opinion, work beautifully if they headline a garden-fresh flavour -- whether its tomatoes or courgette, aubergine or carrots-- it's all about letting that one veggie shine. And, surprisingly, most of these headlining vegetable soups perform equally well served up cold or warm.
Today, while we are still enjoying summer here in Algeria, I share one such simple summery soup with you all!
