Clean Tomato Soup

I have really enjoyed my lunches this week. I made a huge pot of Homemade Tomato Soup and topped it with some Whole Wheat Crackers. Simply AMAZING! Give it a try! 

  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth (reduced sodium if you are using store bought)
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/2 cup low fat coconut milk (or you can use low fat milk)
  • 3- 14 oz cans of crushed tomatoes
  • 5-6 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup low fat yogurt
  • Pepper to taste
Directions (Makes 5 servings):
1. In a medium sauce pan fry the onion on medium-high until translucent (about 7 minutes). Add chopped garlic and fry for an addition minute.
2. Add 3 cans of tomatoes and broth. Keep on medium high for about 10 minutes.
3. Reduce heat to low, add in coconut milk (or milk) and basil leaves for about 2-3 minutes.
4. Transfer soup to another bowl, let cool. Blend soup in batches until desired consistency. Add in yogurt. Add pepper to taste.
5. Heat soup on low for a few minutes and serve warm!
