Love Lemon Month! The lemon pasta with capers is unique and the lemon-chicken orzo soup is the best. The lemon muffins are the best!

I am from Michigan and we do not have a Sweet Tomatoes. Will you share your lemon Lava cake recipe with me? Thanks, Patty


Tracy M. Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at 8:30 am

Sadly, we do not have the Lemon lava cake recipe to give out to the public. Our recipes are batched for very large quantities so it wouldn’t help if I provided you with the recipe and I don’t have the condensed version. We will be serving it all month long so make sure to get back to the restaurant before you go back to Michigan.


bonnie redmond Saturday, July 17, 2010 at 7:45 am

Please share the un condensed recipe for the lemon lava cake. I dont need you to break it down. I can do that myself. Please I just need the ingredients and I can figure out the rest.


Jami Sunday, April 11, 2010 at 11:51 pm

Please give me the recipe for Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup. Thank you.


Shannon Tuesday, April 13, 2010 at 5:32 pm

Yes! I would looove the lemon chicken orzo soup recipie and the dressing on the lemon pecan salad! I eat at souplantation twice a month. When I’m pregnant it’s more like 12 times a month. It’s the only thing I can eat!


Janae Tuesday, April 13, 2010 at 5:49 pm

Can you please share the lemon pasta recipe? I love it and would love to make it for my family. Have already been to souplantation 3 times for the pasta :-)


Robin Ann Thursday, April 15, 2010 at 5:11 am

I agree about NEEDING the Lemon Pasta recipe. I am DYING to eat it every day. And I’m not joking. I had 4 helpings the other night, and one of those helpings was for dessert! I look forward to it each year!


dancingfatcat Thursday, April 15, 2010 at 11:55 am

Please, please, please give us the recipe for the lemon pasta, it is AMAZING!!!!!!!!

I would also like to see this as part of your regular menu. It has such wonderful flavor and your other pasta’s are quite bland (guessing they are mainly for the kiddo’s).


Charlotte Garcia Sunday, April 25, 2010 at 7:28 pm

Could you please send me the receipe for lemon cream hot pasta with capers also your receipe for the lemon salad with pecans Thank you.


Jennifer Monday, April 26, 2010 at 12:15 pm

I would love the lemon muffin recipe. I’ve never had anything like it! Wonderful! The lemon caper pasta recipe would also be lovely.


Christina Thursday, April 29, 2010 at 11:32 am

Love lemon month. Hoping your will share the lemon pasta and muffin recipe. Can’t get enough of them and it’s only yearly.


Kristina Sunday, May 2, 2010 at 2:21 pm

Can you please send me the recipe for the tangy lemon muffins? I love lemon anything!


PAULIE Sunday, May 2, 2010 at 5:20 pm

love love love lemon month!!!!!! Can you please share your Lemon Caper Pasta and lemon lava cake recipe too bad its only one time a year or could you make it longer?


amanda Tuesday, May 4, 2010 at 3:47 pm

Oh my gosh, i’ve been trying to find people who share the same love for the lemon cream pasta w/capers!!!!! I like to sprinkle bacon bits on mine! I went to souplantation twice during lemon month including the last day, and I was sad afterwards thinking I didn’t eat enough of the lemon pasta. I don’t think I COULD ever eat enough of it!!!! I got so desperate to eat it again, that i found a recipe online & tried cooking it. But it didn’t quite turn out the same! :(

PLEASE share how I can make/find this pasta.. or if I’ll just have to wait for the next Lemon Month (who knows when?!) =P


amanda Tuesday, May 4, 2010 at 3:48 pm

Maybe since the Lemon Cream Pasta w/Capers got such good feedback, it can become a regular pasta item?! =)


Daye Friday, May 7, 2010 at 6:30 pm

The lemon cream pasta w/capers is absolutely THE BEST! I went to Souplantation on the last day of April and had 3 servings. I went back the next day and was deeply saddened that Lemon Month had ended. :(
I see alot of folks are requesting the recipe for the lemon cream pasta. Are any of you having any luck finding it?
Hopefully, it will become a regular menu item.


Denise Wednesday, May 12, 2010 at 9:13 am

I just loved the lemon caper pasta. Is there anyway to get the recipe.


Karen Brentlinger Saturday, May 15, 2010 at 10:26 am

Could you please send me the receipe for the tangy lemon muffins. I am a cancer patient and it is hard for me to taste food and this sound’s really good & maybe it would work for me. I would really appreciate it.

Thank You,
Karen Brentlinger


Tracy Thursday, May 20, 2010 at 8:51 am

Oh my!!! Lemon month was the best month ever. I went 6 times in the month of April. My husband and I have been going to Souplantation for years and we never remember a month like April!

My sister and I and my 14-month old twin girls LOVE the Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup! We go to Souplantation once a week to get out of the house and to enjoy a delicious healthy meal. The girls love the muffins, melon, mac & cheese, vanilla froz. yogurt…but all our our all-time favorite item is the Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup. Will you PLEASE send me the recipe as we are all loyal fans. :D


Becca Thursday, November 25, 2010 at 11:49 am

I came twice in the space of two weeks for the Lemon Chicken Orzo soup! It is my favorite and I watch for it, had seconds, and then decided to skip pudding, and have it for dessert too. I love lemon in all its forms, so I love your lemon weeks!

If you are sending out the recipe, I would love it too! Thanks!


Becky Thursday, December 2, 2010 at 8:38 pm

I, too, would looooooooooooove the lemon orzo soup recipe! I dream in lemon now!


Natalie Thursday, September 15, 2011 at 6:42 am

When is the Grilled cheese Focaccia coming back?


Nancy Sunday, April 1, 2012 at 5:59 pm

Just visited the Clairemont location, what’s the name of that delicious hot lemon dessert? Lemon Brown Betty or Lemon Cobbler? Or was that the Lemon Lava Cake? That was THE BEST EVER!


Tracy M. Monday, April 2, 2012 at 8:51 am

The delicious refreshing dessert was our Lemon Lava Cake and we will be serving this the entire month of March!!


LordLemon Tuesday, April 17, 2012 at 4:50 pm

the Lemon Lava Cake was the best thing i’ve ever tasted!! I’ve been scouring the internet for the original recipe, but have so far been unsuccessful. Would you be so kind as to divulge your recipe?


Tracy M. Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at 8:06 am

We will check with Chef Mike and see if he can disclose that recipe. Stay tuned!! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed it, we have it the entire month of April so be sure to come back and enjoy this delicious dessert.


Patricia Thursday, April 19, 2012 at 8:56 pm

why do you serve lemon dishes? is it for april or something for spring?


Tracy M. Friday, April 20, 2012 at 9:01 am

April is Lemon Month at Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes. We change our menu every month and in April we focus on lemons!


Shirley Sunday, April 21, 2013 at 1:01 pm

My husband and I enjoy going to Souplantation during lemon month but really miss not being able to have the lemon pasta or lemon lava cake the remainder of the year :( It would be nice if you could share these recipes as do so many other restaurants. I don’t think your customer would stop coming, they would just be able to enjoy them more often :)


admin Sunday, April 21, 2013 at 3:31 pm
