This chilled soup is sweet, spicy, rich in lycopene and perfect on a hot summer day. There is little prep work and no cooking involved so there is no excuse not to make a healthy dish like this even on a super busy day. You can even make this in advance and keep refrigerated for future enjoyment :)

**Add quinoa, rice, or pasta for more of a complete meal! I used fresh, gluten free spinach pasta in mine. Delish!
