Do you ever think soups are just for winter time? I know so many that say it’s too hot for soup. You know though I just love summer soups! I like to cuddle up, put on a TV series marathon, and make a 30 minute soup. Summer Tuscan soup is my comfort food and so tasty with rich tomatoes. It’s like good fuel for my body.

Especially when I have plenty of work and then all the on the go with the family it really helps to refuel my body from all the running. It’s my way of just breaking down and saying it’s me time. At least my family really loves summer soups too.

My husband is all about soups! This Summer Tuscan Soup does the trick with all the yummy vegetables and Swanson chicken broth.

love being able to put together like a 30  minute summer soup and salad for dinner. Not much cooking along with the easy of a few ingredients into a pot. Do you have a summer soup you dig?

  1. YUMM, this looks amazing and so simple; totally wanna try this. Will add it to my meal plan for the week, perfect for the rainy weather we are getting yet again in Florida

  2. This sounds absolutely rich and delicious! I love tomato based soups but usually wait for the weather to change before I add them back into my day (no clue why) now thanks to this post I definitely want to have some a bit sooner 🙂

  3. Swanson is a brand my mom used when I was a little. It has always been one that I have known to trust and love. Thank you for the recipe, I am headed to the farm this afternoon with the kids to pick our weekly veggies, and now we have something new to make 🙂

  4. I’m in NC and it’s almost soup season here. Fall is one of my favorite seasons and soup is always a go-to for our home. I can’t wait to try this recipe out on my family. Thanks!

  5. I think soups are not only for winter but are best for those times when we are sick. It’s a great soothing dish to calm the soul. Soup is also my comfort food. I can have it in every meal. That summer tuscan soup looks so good!

  6. The coolness in the makes me want to pull out my crockpot and start making soups for the fall. I love that you can use chicken broth to make this fabulous dish and I can’t wait to try.

  7. Winter or not, I love soup. This one looks delicious and easy to make. I love that there are a lot of vegetables in it. I try to add more vegetables and fruits in our meals, so this will be perfect.

  8. I am a soup fanatic. In the summer I’m all about the two unbeatable cold soups, Vichyssoise and Gazpacho. Vichyssoise is made with potato, leek and cream and it would be great with a little chicken broth. Gazpacho is that wonderful cold tomato soup so popular in Spain. Summer is soup time!

  9. This sounds like a delicious soup! I have not used chicken broth as a base for another soup like this before! I wish our Sam’s Club was closer would be a great place to get in on more deals at.

  10. This Summer Tuscan Soup recipes looks delicious! I seriously love Schwans. I have used them for years and actually grew up with my Mom purchasing from them too. They make dinner time easy that is for sure! Great giveaway too!

  11. Your soup looks marvelous and I love the little croutons on top.I usually like making my own chicken stock, but if I were ever short on time, it sounds like a really good deal. I also like that your recipe uses rotisserie chicken as a time saver. Great idea!

    1. I use a lot of my own chicken stock too. However, I found when we are just super busy it’s not the easiest thing to accomplish. I will do broth to back it up.

  12. This soup looks amazing. I did a lot of soups this summer for some reason and it felt good I normally only save soups for the winter but when I want soup…I want soup
