This summer soup is served cold, it is packed with vitamins and minerals, and it is ultra-low in calories! As a bonus you can make it in less than 10 minutes! The flavors intensify as it sits.
We use this recipe as a delicious base to other things:
Cilantro | Jalapeno/Serrano | Lime Juice
Basil | Thyme | Pre-Roasted Garlic
Thai Chili | Thai Basil | Curry Powder
Or use it as a super-healthy bloody mary mix… well “healthier”, if you are going to have a cocktail, it should be natural! You will thank us later! Remember, no vinegar if you plan on going this route, and you may want to tone back the garlic!
Vodka | Horseradish | Worcestershire (no vinegar in this one), garnish with veggies
Vodka | Your Fav Hot Pepper Sauce or Jalapeno (no vinegar in this one), garnish with veggies
