"Every soul who comes to earth with a leg or two at birth must wrestle his opponents knowing it's not what is, it's what can be that measures worth. Make it hard, just make it possible and through pain I'll not complain. My spirit is unconquerable, fearless I will face each foe, for I know I am capable. I don't care what's probable, through blood, sweat, and tears, I am Unstoppable."

Tomato Soup Anyone?

I'm not a big soup fan but this actually sounds good.

Fresh Tomato Soup

  • 2 cans vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 tsp chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 2 pounds tomatoes, cut into wedges or 2 large cans organic diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • a few sprinkles of cayenne or red pepper flakes (a little goes a long way) :)
  • 6 tablespoons plain low-fat yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil


1. Combine celery, onion and garlic in large saucepan. Saute with a little olive oil for 3-4 min. Add broth , tomatoes, tomato paste and spices. Mix together and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes. Place half of tomato mixture in a blender; secure blender lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until smooth. Be careful it will explode all over if you try to blend too much to quickly...Pour into a large bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining tomato mixture. Stir in 2 cups low fat milk or dairy of your choice.

Top each serving with 1 tablespoon yogurt and 1 1/2 teaspoons basil. Enjoy!!
