Total Time:

Summer time is the best time for a cold dinner, but endless salads can get a bit repetitive. This blend and chill soup is a great alternative, paired with a couple of boiled eggs or some leftover quinoa. It will keep in your refrigerator about a week, and is a great way to eat vegetables, avoid a salad, and leave the stove off.
