Standing over a grill all day can get a bit steamy. Battle back against the hot coals with these too-cool summer soups.

1. Green Gazpacho: This soup is like a slurpable guacamole, made with a lush puree of green grapes, cucumbers, parsley and avocado, topped with toasted almonds and pepper (pictured above).
