I never I thought I was a cold soup type of guys but then I tasted this.
On a super hot day and it was pretty much heaven in a healthy bowl.
Its green. Its delicious and you can make it a little differently, because hey, we are done with boring.
I was shown how easy it is to whip up this quick dish a few weeks ago by the KitchenAid team and OzHarvest Executive Head Chef, Travis Harvey, and pretty sure its going to become a staple this summer.
