Rustic Tomato-Basil Soup


Amazing! Looking very forward to making this off and on throughout the fall/winter season! So incredibly easy too. Simply throw everything into the blender and then heat it up. Magnifico!


- 3/4 cup fat-free half and half
- 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
- 1 Tbs olive oil
- 2 Tbs lemon juice
- 1 Tbs Splenda
- 1 tsp. kosher salt (or sea salt)
- 1 tsp. pepper
- 3 large beefsteak tomatoes (those wonderful big juicy ones), chopped
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1/2 tsp. minced garlic (tip: you can buy a jar of garlic already minced to save time)
- parmesan cheese

Combine all ingredients, except parmesan, into a blender and blend until smooth. Transfer to a sauce pan and heat to desired temperature. Add 1/2 Tbs parmesan to each bowl of soup before serving. You can also garnish with more basil as well. If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
