If you can imagine having soup in the summer time, this Mexican Black Bean & Corn Soup is one that doesn’t heat up the kitchen, uses up fresh summer produce and has a wonderful kick to it.  It also freezes well, which is wonderful for any pre-Ramadan cooking you’ll be doing (which I hope you are, or planning to!)
