A simple spring soup recipe from Chef Katherine Frelon.

This recipe came out of the Love Your Local Market Market Basket Challenge. It is perfect for quickly serving a hungry crowd and a great way to try out inspirational treats from the Borough Market producers. Try it with my trio of bruschette.
