This unique light soup utilizes end of summer veggies. I love it with a few slices of a hearty whole-wheat sourdough bread spread with fresh goat cheese.

This is a wonderful recipe! I added black beans carrots and more garlic. A very light clean and refreshing soup that is super yummy too. Perfect with a hunk of your favorite bread. You can always experiment with your own favorite seasonings. Highly recommend this versatile soup! Thanks so much for sharing! Read More

This is a great soup recipe - I did "doctor it" with additional seasonings such as Worchestershire sauce and a bit of oregano and basil (minusing the cumin) and I took all the seeds out of the tomatoes prior to adding to soup. Everyone LOVED it! Read More

Wonderful summer soup. I put a lot more corn than was called for and cut back the broth to 4 or 5 cups so that it would be thicker. We added some hot sauce when served. Read More

Very good soup! Would recommend other spices than cumin since not everyone likes it - garam masala and fresh cilantro Italian seasoning or my favorite Hungarian paprika both sweet and hot. Found that it needed to simmer a bit longer about 25 minutes. Added a pinch of sugar to counteract acidity a bay leaf (remove at the end of cooking) and less veg broth 1 carton 1 cup of water. If you have fresh parsley add some to the soup at the table. Excellent use of green tomatoes if you're not into frying or canning/pickling them! Read More

This soup had a surprising tanginess to it. We thought it was a little bland but bacon bits really perked it up. Read More

This was a great recipe. I really loved the fresh vegetables and combination. I varied slightly based on ingredients I had. I put allspice a potato a shallot and a dash of worcestershire and it was great. Will definitely make this again. Read More
