Tomato-Orange Ginger Soup

In Chili & Soup by Dave DeWittLeave a Comment

This is an exciting blend of fresh, light flavors that makes a great beginning-of-the-meal palate stimulator during the summer. It has beautiful color and a slight bite from the ginger. A thinly sliced lime wheel makes an excellent garnish when floated on the soup with a dollop of sour cream.
