Chef’s Tips:

  1. Serve with this soup with chopped fresh basil and oregano and plain nonfat Greek yogurt.
  2. When pureeing hot foods in a blender, be sure to keep the batches small. Too large a batch can blow the top right off the blender, acting as a safety hazard as well as a destructive force in the kitchen.
  3. Choose a low-sodium vegetable broth for better flavor and health impact.
  4. Make sure the tomatoes you use are heavy and firm-skinned, with no soft spots or bruises.
