Orange-Tomato Consommé with Lemongrass and Fresh Ginger

This is just the thing for a muggy summer day, as tomato-based ice cubes keep the soup cold without diluting it. Though it isn't, technically speaking, consommé (usually meat-based), this pale tomato broth soup resembles consommé in texture. Prep: 10 minutes; Freeze: 2 hours; Chill: 2 hours.

Yield: Makes 6 servings
