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!

This is very tasty! I think I'll experiment with it more when I cook it again. I'm having it for lunch today as left overs. Yum!! Thank you!
