Tomato Soup

20121005-113825.jpg

I looked at a few recipes online but none really included the ingredients I had in mind and made it easy enough to follow so I just came up with my own. Hoping for the best…. Hehe!

Please feel free to follow my recipe and make any changes as I really didn’t measure things very accurately.

Ingredients
About a 10 tomatoes of any kind!
1 large onion
3 garlic cloves
2 tbsp of olive oil
Pepper and salt
8 oz organic vegetable broth
1/4 cup grass-fed heavy whipping cream (optional)

Method
On a baking sheet place all tomatoes and onions in large chunks. Include whole garlic cloves and sprinkle the olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes until onions are soft.

Take out and put in blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add vegetable broth and blend again.

Place soup in pot on stove on low heat. Here you have two choices depending on your taste. You can add water until you get the desire consistency. Or you can add the whipping cream if you rather a creamier soup. Just stir for a few minutes and you’re done!!!

An easy and delicious soup with all fresh ingredients!!

Another Great Protein Shake

Here’s another great option for a protein shake when you want to include some carbs as well.

Ingredients pictured below. I use 1/4 cup of oatmeal and a teaspoon of chia seeds. One scoop of protein and a whole banana. You can choose to do 8 oz. almond milk or do half milk half water.
