Recipe by Dreamer in Ontario

Late summer, when luscious vine-ripened tomatoes are available, is the perfect time to make this soup. The recipe was found on the Toronto Star website and adapted from Sam Stern's Cooking Up a Storm: The Teen Survival Cookbook. Stern is a British kitchen prodigy. The soup may be eaten warm or cold.
