Asparagus, Tomato and Shoepeg Corn Summer Soup with Havarti Grilled Cheese Croutons

Who cares if it’s summer?

Sometimes you gotta get your soup on.
Asparagus and Tomato Summer Soup | Dixie Chik Cooks Although this soup is hot, it’s still summery.

Asparagus, fresh tomatoes and shoepeg corn all come together to make a beautiful soup. Does it matter that it’s hot?


Hell, your burger would be hot as all hell, so what’s the difference.

And these damn grilled cheese croutons are the bomb.

If you’ve never had Havarti cheese before, try it out. It makes the most perfect grilled cheese. The texture and butteriness is perfect for this.

Try to avoid canned corn because fresh definitely wins here. It’s seasonal, cheap and will make your soup a rockstar. If you’re wondering about the tarragon, I know it’s not something you would traditionally see in a soup like this but I definitely have an affinity for it. For me, it literally transforms dishes. I love it in this.

I love it in everything.

Don’t judge a girl.
