Skinny Tomato Basil Soup, made with veggies that have been purred in a food processor, makes for a fast and healthy dinner!
I’m a sucker for tomato soup. When we lived in Utah I’d eat at Zupas all the time just to enjoy their amazing tomato basil soup–gosh I miss that place! Luckily I can lean on this awesome recipe instead! The best thing about this recipe (besides how yummy it is!) is how EASY it is.
This is definitely a 30-minute (or less) meal, which just can’t be beat! I really love this Slow Cooker Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup recipe, but this skinny tomato basil soup version is the best when you want dinner FAST! And I love that it has veggies hidden it–my toddler gobbles this up!
