This week’s #SundaySupper Theme is skinny! This weekend all the recipes we share as a group are healthy recipes that are tasty and won’t leave you feeling guilty about eating them later. We’ve got quite the range of healthy recipes below, so be sure to share them with anyone who may want something healthy to eat, whether it be a light soup or a guilt-free dessert. Thank you to Sue for all of her work organizing this week! Please be sure to check out her Gluten-Free Cafe page, it has a lot of great recipes and I encourage anyone who is gluten free to go check them out.

I’ve never been a huge fan of soup made out of the can. Most brands, aside from being potentially unsafe for gluten, taste overly salted to me, and really ruin the overall taste. That’s why I love making batches of homemade soup. They’ll normally last for a couple days and are really delicious. This is my healthy tomato soup, which contains low sodium chicken stock, fresh tomatoes, onion, garlic, fresh basil, and some seasoning. There’s something really satisfying about being able to count all the ingredients of a recipe with only two hands! My secret to making this soup smooth is to use a cheesecloth to strain out the pulp after cooking, and to serve with fresh basil on top. I hope you enjoy!

Servings 6-8, depending on the size of the tomatoes
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes

2 cups low sodium chicken stock
5 fresh tomatoes, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
5 fresh basil leaves
2 tsp mustard
2 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper

Place a stock pot over medium high heat. Add the chicken stock, tomatoes, onion, garlic, mustard, salt and pepper. Tear the basil leaves into shreds and add to the soup. Bring the soup to a boil, and then cover. Let the soup boil for 30 minutes.

Once the soup has cooked, use an immersion blender to blend the soup until all of the tomato is broken down. Line the inside of a strainer with cheesecloth and place over top a bowl. Strain the soup into the bowl. Serve into soup bowls and top with some finely sliced basil leaves.

    Mmmm…I can just imagine how good this soup would taste with some homemade, crusty, whole wheat bread. I used to eat a lot of canned soups but not as much as my Husband. He loved the stuff! Since we’re older and wiser (hopefully!) now, we haven’t eaten the canned stuff in years and much prefer making it from scratch. Way less salt, way more veggies, and no artificial, tinny flavour.

    Tomato soup may be my all-time fave and your version if it looks fantastic! Thank for sharing p.s….you may have just given me a great excuse to get an immersion blender;-)

    I totaly agree, those soups from the cans are just horrible aren’t they?! Your soup makes me want to go back to the kitchen and make a fresh pot for tonight. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us. =)

      Agreed! It’s always crazy to me the color differences between processed and fresh foods. Tomato soup is always such a great example. I’ve never gotten the deep tomato red color that canned soups have. It’s always made me wonder what they do to make it so red!
