Author Notes: This deceptively simple soup is light and refreshing but complex in flavor with notes of tart, flowery, slightly sweet ... lovely with a little splash of prosecco added to each bowl right before serving; pretty amazing without. Garlic, Zest and Dark Dark Chocolate

  • 3 cups water
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar or 1/3 cup sugar
