Avacado crab soup is also a terrific summer soup. I just remembered it! :)

Made this by accident. . . I had a bunch of ingredients on hand that I intended to use for a soup recipe I found in one of my cookbooks. I realized I'd somehow read the recipe wrong, so I improvised with what I had and came up with this:

Light Tomato and Wine Soup

1/2 cup minced onion
1/3 cup slivered fresh basil
3 cups plus 3 T. chicken stock, defatted
1/2 cup dry white wine
5 medium whole tomatoes, peeled and puréed (~ 14 oz. canned diced tomatoes)
1 t. sugar
1 T. tomato paste
1 T. lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

Sauté onion and basil in 3 T. of stock until stock evaporates. Add the broth, wine, tomato purée, sugar, tomato paste, and lemon juice. Cook 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

It's clear, light, and very yummy!

I've never been a fan of cold soups except for Gazpacho, which I really love - especially if it's made nice & spicy.

As far as hot soups I like during the warmer months, I enjoy any of the relatively clear Asian soups like Miso, Egg Drop, Wonton, etc. I also really like a good Tomato Basil when the fresh tomatoes are coming in & the fresh basil is in its prime.
