this soup is absolutely delicious. i would advise using a vegan fish (seaweed/mushroom) broth for a dynamic savoury base to the soup. don’t skip the lemon and basil!
So easy to make! The lemon and basil really make it taste like summer!
This was just ok…..because the recipe called for water instead of broth, it didn’t really taste like soup but more like you cooked a side of vegetables and forgot to drain the water off. I think if I was to make this again, I would use low sodium vegetable broth instead of water.
The original recipe I have from the FOK website that I printed out clearly states to use “6 cups of water”……it looks like it has been corrected to vegetable stock/broth.
Winner! Simple, light and flavourful. Thank you! ❤
Just made the soup it’s incredible
Light and refreshing, I like this base a bit heartier by adding some chopped spinach, diced bok choy, diced baked potato, and a grain (brown rice/quinoa/ barley).
This is one of the best soups I’ve ever had. It’s very refreshing and full of flavor.
We’ve made this recipe for 3 summers in a row and this year we look forward to using vegetables we grew.
Sometimes we add potatoes to make it more substantial.
My husband and I really enjoyed this. Will be making it again and maybe canning some.
I used to cans of diced tomatoes and frozen corn. Didn’t have any fresh lemon or basil. I added dried basil and a few handfuls of spinach. Very good!
If I could rate this higher, I would. This delicious summer soup is so tasty, I’ve made it many times. The lemon juice and zest really gives it a zing.
This soup has definitely become a favorite! We loved it! Used our home-grown tomatoes and zucchini. Thank you FOK!
