Here's one of my favorite foods - tomato soup....of course this is best served with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches! Good comfort food I found this recipe on the Passionate Homemaking site and its REALLY good. You HAVE to try it. When you do, you will never want to eat canned tomato soup again!!!! Its the time of year when I lot of us have a LOT of tomatoes and this is a great way to use them. Although I've never tried, I'm sure this could be frozen very easily and pulled out during those winter months when you just CRAVE a fresh veggie taste!!!
Homemade Tomato Soup
4 cups tomatoes, diced
1 onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced (or garlic powder)
1 cup chicken broth
1 tsp sea salt or garlic salt
1 Tbsp. dry basil (FRESH basil is best if you have it - add to taste)
dash of pepper
2-3 tsp. rapadura or other natural sweetener
1. Saute garlic and onions in a little coconut oil (or other oil) until tender or translucent.
2. Add tomatoes and chicken broth and cook over medium heat for approximately 15 minutes.
3. Remove from heat and puree completely with a blender. Return to pot and add remaining ingredients to your taste.
Serve with a dallop of sour cream and/or grilled cheese sandwiches for a perfect lunch!!! ENJOY!
