READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Pebbles

A wonderful clear soup with flavors that "pop" like lemon and cilantro. So light and refreshing.

Top Review by Kellie in SLO

This soup is very light and flavorful. It got two thumbs up from both my picky eaters. I froze about half of it in individual containers, and am so glad that I did. My daughter was sick yesterday and she pulled one out and heated it up, said it helped her feel a lot better.
