Tomato Basil Soup

Tomato Basil Soup

Introduction

I came up with my version of tomato basil soup based on what I had on hand. Sub out whatever tomato products you happen to have. I dont think you can mess this up and whatever you do will put Campbell's to shame!

Ingredients

    6-8 medium tomatoes
    2 T tomato paste
    1 can chicken broth
    1 can water
    1/2 medium onion
    1 clove garlic
    1 sweet red pepper
    1 T canola oil
    1 cup basil leaves
    Salt/pepper to taste
    1/2 cup fat free half and half (any milk product would work)
    1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese (plus extra for topping)
    1/4 cup butter (I used Smart Balance)


Directions

Saute onions, garlic and peppers in canola oil until soft. Add broth, water, tomatoes, tomato paste and basil. Simmer 30 minutes. Using a blender, food processor or immersion blender, blend until smooth. (If using a blender or food processor, make sure you vent the top a bit and only blend in small batches - don't burn yourself!). Return to pot and add half and half, butter and cheese while on LOW heat. Take off heat, garnish with more cheese and serve.
