Yummy Tomato Soup and Juice May 18, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — Polka Dot Robot @ 5:44 AM

I just got back from the store with two heaping bags full of fresh fruits and veggies.

My favorite food in the world is tomato soup. So I thought I’d try making it for the first time ever. It turned out great. Not the best soup I’ve ever had, but it’s still pretty good.

– 2 peeled Baja tomatos

– 2 cloves of garlic

– 1 cup vegetable broth

– 1/4 small yellow onion (about an inch big)

– half a carrot, sliced

– 1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese

– about a half handful of mushrooms

I put the carrot and onion in a cup with just a couple splashes of water and microwaved it for about two and a half minutes. Chopped the tomatoes in half, threw them in there with the garlic, microwaved again for about a minute, added the broth, cottage cheese, and mushrooms, and blended until smooth.

Juice:

– Handful of grapes

– Two HUGE handfuls of spinach

– two apples

– big handful of strawberries

Juiced these together and mixed half and half with water.

Both of these recipes gave me enough for at least three servings.
