Elephant Deli Tomato-Orange Soup, Very Quick

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

Got this recipe from our local paper, many years ago. It is quick and good, another family favorite. Can be made with bottled pre-squeezed orange juice, but fresh orange juice is better.

I have had this many, many times at Elephants Delicatessen and it is my favorite soup!!! I have made it before and this recipe is fantastic, it is very close to the Deli's--I will be perfecting it to get even closer. An absolute must try if you love tomato soup!
