Roasted Pepper & Tomato Soup
Ingredients for 4 servings:
- 2 lbs of roma tomatoes (6-8)
- 2 red bell peppers
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1 yellow onion
- 1 whole garlic
- 6-7 basil leaves or 2 oz of basil paste
- ½ cup of fat free half and half
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp of olive oil.
- Oil spray
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Chop all the vegetables and place in a flat cooking sheet (except the onions, basil and garlic) with some oil spray and place in the middle rack for 20-25 minutes or until you see the vegetables roasted throughout.
Saute the basil, onion and garlic in a pan with the 2 tbsp of olive oil until the onion is golden and soft.
When the tomatoes and peppers are ready, mix everything in a blender with the ½ cup of half and half and add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with some parmesan cheese (optional) and enjoy!
Why We Love This Weight Loss Recipe
This soup is packed with goodness that will not add inches to your waistline. Tomatoes are a great source of nutrients and linked to heart health.
Bell peppers are low cal., high flavor, maxi vitamins. So not only is it diet-friendly, but also delicious.
We also love that creaminess from the half/half. It doesn’t need much, just enough for a velvety texture without guilt.
Who said that a weight loss recipe always has to be bland to be effective? We all know that most diets don’t work because they don’t account for taste or variety. And while some foods are a no-no, whole foods are a yes-yes.
