Vegan cold pear soup is sweet and delicious, and makes a perfect appetizer, or even a dessert! Cold soup is refreshing and flavourful, and just perfect using seasonal produce.
Not only are pears in season, but they are packed in Vitamins C & K. In fact, pears have numerous health benefits, including being said to aid in digestion. So I picked up a basket of Ontario grown fresh pears at the supermarket, and that’s resulted in this AMAZING vegan cold pear soup. Shall we?
I know, I know, this sounds pretty strange right?
Cold pear soup???
My husband had the same reaction, until he tasted it! So just wait until you try it!
How do you make cold pear soup?
Start by cooking your onion and garlic in some vegan margarine or butter. Make sure to use an oven safe skillet. Then add the pears and remaining ingredients except the plant milk and broil until lightly browned.
Remove from the oven and transfer everything to your blender and add the plant milk. Process until smooth and creamy. You may enjoy warm or cold.
I did try the soup warm at first, and it was delicious! But then because of mom life, a screaming baby and toddler, bath time, bed time, etc, I didn’t sit down to take another bite until over 30 minutes later.
That was meant to be!
This soup tastes AMAZING served cold. Both hubby and I couldn’t believe how much better the sweet and savoury flavours combined with each other once cooled to room temperature.
