A great light and refreshing vegetable soup that holds for several days in the fridge.

Served

Tomatillos are refreshing fruity and rich in taste especially when using them freshly picked from the CSA farm. The sweetness of the carrots and yellow peppers is balanced with lime juice allowing this soup to satisfy even highest vegan expectations.

With a lot of tomatillos and leeks from the CSA farm I made again this delicious soup.

The increased proportion of tomatillos made the soup much fruitier and enhanced the sweet/acid interplay.

Chopped vegetable.
