This soup is pretty easy to make. It's very healthy and light, but a good side dish to almost any meal! Pulled this recipe out of Cooking Light Magazine.
All you need:
About 6 mediums sized tomatoes, quartered
1 small onion, roughly chopped
3/4 cup celery, roughly chopped
2 cups of chicken/vegetable broth (1 can- preferably reduced sodium)
Either fresh basil, or about 3 tsp dried basil, divided
Salt and Pepper
1 T Tomato Paste
Nonfat plain yogurt (for garnish, but it stirs in to add flavor as well!)
Throw your tomatoes, broth, onion, celery, tomato paste, basil (just add as much as you want really), salt and pepper in a large pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer about 30 minutes.
Remove and place in a food processor or blender. You can always put it in your machine in batches if it is too much to go all at once. You could also use an emersion blender (Thats the long guy that sometimes comes with your hand mixer that you think, what on earth is this?)
Anyways, puree it SOMEHOW, then return to the pot to keep warm. Ladle into bowls. Top with a spoonful of yogurt and maybe some fresh or dried basil.
Now, before you eat, mix that little dollop in for a smooth and rich flavor boost!
