A soup that really perks up the taste buds. An ideal starter to literally wet the appetite. As usual, the use of quality fresh ingredients produces the best quality product. Ideally, use fresh vine-ripened tomatoes and sun-ripened oranges. Store bought or canned/bottled can also be used in a pinch but the taste slides down the scale accordingly. Do not exceed the quantities of onion, potato or carrot as this will overpower the soup. The tomato and orange flavours should be primary and the other veges function only to provide a "body enhancer".
