Ingredients

  • 3 large ripe red tomatoes, cored, seeded, and cut up
  • 2 medium cucumbers, seeded and cut up
  • 2 medium orange sweet peppers, seeded and cut up
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and cut up
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1⁄3 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 ½ teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • Sea salt (optional)
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime wedges and scallions (optional)

Directions

In a large bowl combine tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers, chile pepper, and garlic. Place half the tomato mixture in a food processor; process with several on/off turns to large chunks. Repeat with remaining tomato mixture. Return all of the mixture to the food processor. Add lime juice, honey, cilantro, ginger, and ¼ teaspoon sea salt. Cover and process with several on/off turns until the mixture is just a little chunky. If desired, season to taste with additional sea salt.

To serve, place 2-3 ice cubes in each of 4 shallow bowls or glasses; ladle soup over ice. If desired, serve with lime wedges and scallions.

Honey Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Honey Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
