  1. 1 cup canned tomato juice (I like Muir Glen organic)
  2. cups homemade vegetable, corn, or chicken stock or your favorite canned broth
  3. tablespoons prepared or freshly grated horseradish
  4. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  5. 2 teaspoons sugar
  6. Drops of hot sauce, such as Pickapeppa or Tabasco (optional)
  7. Sea salt to taste


Whisk all the ingredients together at least an hour before serving to allow the flavors to marry. If serving hot, it’s best just to warm the broth through—don’t boil or even simmer—to release the fresh aromas of the horseradish and lemon.
