There’s been a complete lack of workouts over here this week. Needless to say, I have nothing to report – save for 60-minutes of lower body on Sunday and a 1-mile walk on Tuesday. Instead of talking about workouts I’ll talk about food some more. I have a new homemade tomato soup recipe to share.
Tuesday I realized I had not had any veggies all day. As of late I had been eating salads for lunch, and frankly I am all salad-out at the moment. I’ll blame a lack of tasty toppings.
Homemade Tomato Soup
So I opened the cupboard to find one leftover can of diced tomatoes. This had been a cooking staple for me back when it as cold out. Summertime – not so much!
I added some fresh basil to the pot, courtesy my veggie/herb garden. Regardless I decided to make a quick pot of homemade tomato soup so I could get some vegetables in my body.
I topped it with some Parmesan cheese and had a slice of multi-grain bread on the side for dipping.
I confess, I added even more Parmesan cheese after I took the photo! The soup tasted great, but boy, was I hot afterward. Burning up!
This homemade tomato soup is a favorite at our house. I make it so much I often don’t even measure the ingredients and it still comes out great! We enjoy it most often with grilled cheese sandwiches. You can also enjoy it with crackers or garlic bread dipped in the soup would also be nice.
I like that this soup is quick and easy to make. It’s also healthy and doesn’t contain all those preservatives most soups contain and it’s also pretty filling and hearty. I tend to make this soup more in the winter, but it can also be enjoyed in the summer if desired.
Do you eat soup in the summer?
