This summer-long heatwave has us all moaning and groaning at the thought of slurping down anything that does not start with the word “ice” and end with the word “cream”, and the thought of soup is enough to send anyone into hysterics.
But I beg of you. Hear me out.
The green goddess soup that we’re tasting today is filled with the bright summer flavors of zucchini, lemon and cilantro. It’s light in such a way that even though it’s served warm, drinking it down still feels utterly refreshing.
Paired with a pesto mozzarella grilled cheese with the bright flavors of basil, the duo positively exudes summer. The two work so well together that after every bite or slurp, you’ll find yourself smiling a bit to yourself, grateful that summer and all its delicious produce is unremittingly here.
