Summer Flower Soup Inspired from a trip to the Farmer’s Market

lovely fresh farmers market ingredients to summer flower soup

Made Fresh with the Flowering Veggies and tasty Herbs I picked up at the Silver Lake Farmers Market Valentine’s Day Weekend.

Why I love it:

It’s made with flowers! It’s healthy! It’s Organic Farm Fresh! It’s Super Delish!

The lemon gives it the same zesty flavor as water cress soup with sour cream. Quadruple yum!

It’s a low-calorie, nutrition-packed, delicious soup.
