Come On Up To The House

Tomato Soup

I don’t know how many soups I have written about yet, but I think soup may be one of my favorite foods. It is so versatile. Hot, cold, sweet, savory, thick, thin….so many different options of flavors. The list can go on and on. ┬áMy girlfriend once gave me a Zola diet tomato bisque recipe, and I have changed it some to make it a 0 point recipe to fit my eating. Add in meat, cream (if you like) or more vegetables.

Pictured here is the 0 pt. soup with a Chipotle Chicken Sausage cut up and put into make it to make it a more filling for lunch today.

Tomato Soup

1 can 28oz crushed tomatoes
1 14oz can diced tomatoes
6 green onions, finely chopped whites and light greens only (could sub one leeks)
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
4 cups vegetable broth

On weight watchers, you are allowed to eat 2 tsp of a good healthy oil a day. I used 1 tsp olive oil to saute the green onions, but you could substitute that for cooking spray if you have used up your oil allotment for the day.

Back to the soup….Saute green onions for 1 minute. Add in the crushed and diced tomatoes. Season with the oregano and basil and let boil together for another minute. Pour in the vegetable broth and let simmer for 30 minutes covered on low. Before serving, stir in the vinegar and enjoy. This made 5 good portions.
