Recipe by rochsann

A request recipe from the Watermark Restaurant in Cleveland, printed in the October 2000 issue of Bon Appetit, this is an easy, elegant soup. The cilantro on top makes it! Can be made a day ahead.

I have been using this recipe since it was published in Bon Appetit. It is quick and easy to make, and absolutely delectable. Even better the day after!
