Love Apple Soup
Rating (0 Rated)
Did you know that the French called tomatoes ‘love apples’ because they believed them to have aphrodisiac powers? Well, we can’t confirm if that’s true, we do believe that you will fall in love with this simple, savory soup. Don’t let the ordinary ingredients fool you; the sum is far greater than it’s parts. Adding a dash of fresh lime juice to each serving helps to meld the flavors and add just the right note of brightness to this slightly spicy, rustic soup.
