What do we love about cold soups? Well, just about everything—especially in the summer, when the prospect of turning on the oven feels like one of the bigger challenges of the day. Aside from a little roasting and scorching, you can get most of the work for these soups done in a blender, saving you the extra heat of the oven or stove. Tonight, make a low-temperature, low-stress dinner in the amount of time it takes to whirl together a smoothie

Here are 10 chilled soups to help you keep your cool:
