Tomato Basil Soup

Ok, a lot of people have been asking me to post this recipe on my blog! So I figured 3 months later is a good enough time to do so! Oops! So here it is! It is by far one of the best tomato soups I have ever tasted! And it makes it sooo much better since it is weight watchers!

Yum-O

Tomato Basil Soup
Servings: 4 • Points Plus: 3
Servings Size: 1 1/2 cups
Calories: 150 • Fat: 4g • Carbs: 25g • Protein: 5g • Sugar: 14g • Fiber: 5g

Ingredients:
  • 2  15oz cans of tomato sauce (only ingredients should be tomatoes & spices)
  • 1/2 can of water
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, slightly pureed 
  • 1/2 vidalia onion, chopped small
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of fat free half-and-half
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 TB sugar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • OPTIONAL-tbsp of Franks Red Hot (if you want a little zing to your soup!)
Directions:

1)  Puree the grape tomatoes with either a food chopper or the small bowl of your food processor. Don't have either? Toss them into the regular food processor & it will do just fine. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a medium soup pan & saute the garlic & onion until the onions are soft. Once soft, add the tomatoes & their juices.


2) Add all of the spices to the tomato mixture & toss. Add the two cans of tomato sauce & a half can of water. Bring to a boil, reduce to medium heat, & add the half-and-half. Simmer for about 15 minutes, taste for seasoning, and serve.

Enjoy everyone! Happy New Year, Merry Christmas, etc, you know all those holidays I have missed! Bad blogger! Hoping to get back into blogging more this year!
