This recipe was shared by Jamie Wei, the blogger and recipe writer behind Chopstick Meets Fork, as part of her Rosh Hashanah menu. Jamie serves this bright, gazpacho-like soup in mini bowls. For a larger yield, simply double the recipe. This recipe can be prepared up to two days in advance; store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
