Low-Fat Cream of Tomato Soup
I used to make the full-fat version but after I lost 100 pounds, I figured out how to make this easy and yummy tomato soup.
- Serves: 4 persons
- 2(14.5 ounce) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
- 2tablespoons chopped onion
- 1½ tablespoons white sugar
- 2teaspoons salt
- ⅛teaspoon ground cloves
- ½teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1(12 fluid ounce) can fat-free evaporated milk
Step 1Pour tomatoes with their juice into a saucepan, and mix in onion, sugar, salt, cloves, and black pepper; bring to a boil over medium heat, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until the onion is tender, about 10 minutes.
Step 2Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the cooking pot.
Step 3Return blended soup to the saucepan, and stir in the evaporated milk. Place over low heat, and cook just until hot, about 1 minute.
