Jamaican Tomato Soup

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

Adapted from a Moosewood recipe. A neat combo of flavors that I thought were dynamite together.

This is a far cry from the usual tomato soup. Very flavoursome but a little too fruity for my picky palate. Fairly easy to make and had a lovely texture. May try again with less orange!
