A-Z Soups

Here is a refreshing, cool soup perfect for a warm day. If that isn’t enough to recommend it, it is also quick and easy to prepare.

Adapted from: Cooks Library Soups, Parragon Publishing, UK, 2003

Orange Tomato Soup                              serves 6


2 cups orange juice
2 cups tomato juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
½ cup dry white wine
¼ teaspoon finely minced fresh basil

Dash of celery salt (optional)
Salt & pepper to taste
Cayenne pepper or liquid hot sauce (such as Tabasco) to taste
1 teaspoon minced fresh mint (optional)


  • Combine the juices, wine and basil in a 2 quart bowl
  • Stir in the salt and peppers
  • Chill until ready to serve.

A simple, charming soup for a backyard bbq, easy to make ahead and keep chilled in the icebox. When ready, just bring it out and ladle into bowls or mugs.  You could garnish it with fresh mint sprigs - if you are growing mint in your garden you may need to thin it out anyway. 

Enjoy this Orange-Tomato soup soon.
