Summer Tomato and Squash Soup

This soup was inspired by a total favorite of mine… Gazpacho! Except this one is a little different because I actually served it warm thanks to my Vitamix (if I had made it in a blender that doesn’t have a heatĀ setting I would have served it cold!!). The beauty of this soup is that you can add virtually anything to it. I kept it simple with summer squash, tomatoes, and some apple, but you could also add cucumber, tomatoes, garlic, ginger or even an onion.

You can make this soup into a meal by adding extra avocado (as I did) for extra healthy fat and calories, or shrimp or shredded chicken for extra protein. I also added plenty of fresh and tasty herbs and spices to this dish which made it even better!

Enjoy this light and tasty summer tomato and squash soup!

    The soup was fabulous. We served it cold. Added carrots and onions. Doubled the recipe so that we would have leftovers.
    Keep posting,
