How do I make this Easy Fire-Roasted  Tomato Basil Soup?

In a large dutch oven or pot, melt butter over medium-high heat. 

Add onion, garlic, basil, red pepper, salt pepper, sugar or sugar substitute, canned tomatoes, and chicken broth.

Stir until well combined. 

Bring to a boil. Then cover and let it simmer for at least 30 minutes. 

Remove from heat. Let it cool for 10 minutes.

Divide the soup into 3 servings. Blend each serving in a food processor or blender-until puréed.

I use the Ninja Food Processor and Blender that I absolutely love and recommend. You can find it HERE on Amazon.

( IMPORTANT: be sure to hold the lid tightly and with a hand towel to avoid getting splashed with the hot soup.)

Repeat for the other servings.

Pour puréed soup back into dutch oven or pot. Stir in fat free half and half or non fat plain Greek yogurt.

Tip: be sure the plain Greek yogurt is at room temperate when adding it tp the soup to avoid clumping.

Stir until combined. 

Remove from heat and serve.

Serve with grilled cheese, my 2 Point Garlic Knots, as a side dish, appetizer, or by itself.

Makes 8 ( 1 and 1/2 cup) servings

 

Ingredients:

  • 4 ( 14.5 oz.) cans fire roasted diced tomatoes ( I use Hunt’s )

  • 1/4 tsp salt

*Notes:

  • You can use 2 tsp sugar or 2 tsp sugar substitute and use the fat free half and half or skim milk plus cornstarch-the overall point value per serving would be the same for either option. The amount of sugar which is minimal (2 points) and will not impact the overall point value for this recipe per serving.
  • For the soup to be ZERO Freestyle Smart Points per serving you will need to use 1 cup non fat plain Greek yogurt and 2 tsp sugar substitute.
  • If you can’t find FAT FREE half and half- you can use 1 cup skim milk mixed with 2 Tbsp cornstarch. Just whisk the cornstarch into the milk and you have yourself a great fat free half and half substitute
  • Tip: be sure the plain Greek yogurt is at room temperate when adding it tp the soup to avoid clumping
  • In order to calculate the freestyle smart points on a recipe you have to enter the ingredients in manually (by ingredient) not by the nutritional information in the ww recipe builder-since this recipe contains zero point items the app doesn’t realize there is zero point items in the recipe and will calculate it based only off the nutritional info which is not accurate.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container  7-10 days in the fridge or freeze for up to 3 months.

I made this today and it's sooooooooooo good! I miss tomato soup since the canned type just has too many points for me. I will have to cut back on the red pepper flakes though, whew, they gave me hiccups!

Hello, just wondering if the sugar is necessary? Are you doing it to balance the acid of tomatoes? I don't want the soup to be sweet. I can't wait to make this. I've been dying for tomato soup.

the sugar, I used Erythritol, just cuts down the acidity in the soup but it's not remotely sweet

I made this soup today and used an immersion blender. I added 1 c. Greek yogurt at the end. It turned out so delicious! My husband and son loved it too! We are having it for dinner with grill cheese sandwiches. Thanks for a delicious recipe. Reminds me of Panera's tomato soup which is my favorite.

I made this soup last night and YUMMMMMY! It was so good. I paired with a lightened version of grilled cheese. I love tomato basil soup, but I have found it to be pretty hight points usually, but this ZERO on Purple!? Wow. Thanks again.
