I'm all dug out after yesterday's 31cm of snow! What a crazy day. I hope you were all safe and sound and didn't have to travel too far in that blizzardy weather.
I was fortunate to be able to work from home yesterday and on a cold and blustery day I thought soup would make a perfect dinner option. I decided to try making a tomato soup; something I've never done before. I followed a friends' recipe and I have to say it was DELICIOUS! Quick easy and filling, it was a hit with everyone except Boo. Pretty, who is normally the pickiest eater around, even ate it!
When I entered it into the Weight Watchers eTools recipe builder, I was very happy to see that the soup is only 2 PointsPlus points per serving!
Here's the recipe:
3 cans diced tomatoes (approx 10 cups).
I used the diced tomatoes I canned myself this summer and I used 2.5L worth.
4 cups 1% milk (the recipe actually called for whole milk)
2 Tbsp tomato pasted
2 Tbsp butter
1 tsp sugar
4 Tbsp flour
3 garlic cloves
Fresh basil, salt & pepper to taste.
1 medium onion chopped finely
Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on high 4-6 hours or low 8-10 hours. I blended the mixture after it had cooked to puree the chunks of onion and tomato, making it more kid-friendly. I also found this helped to thicken it up.
1 cup per serving. Makes approximately 16-17 servings.
I hope you all enjoy this as much as we did!
