Fire Roasted Tomato Soup with Cheezy Croutons
Health Highlights


2 tbsp Ghee (divided - or coconut oil)
1 small White onion (diced)
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
4 cup Vegetable stock/broth
1/4 cup Basil, fresh (chopped)
1/4 cup fluid Whipping cream (optional)
1 cup crumbled Whole grain bread (cheezy croutons - multri grain, diced into 1/2 cubes)
1 tsp Nutritional yeast (cheezy croutons)
1/2 tsp Garlic powder (cheezy croutons)
1 pinch Salt (cheezy croutons)
1 dash Black pepper (cheezy croutons)
1 can(s) (28oz) Diced tomatoes, canned (use fire roasted tomatoes if you would like the subtle smoky flavor)


Heat ghee in a 2-quart stock pot over medium heat. Add onions and cook until translucent, about 4-5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for one minute more, stirring constantly. Add tomatoes and vegetable stock. Once soup comes to a boil, turn off the heat.

With an immersion blender, blend soup until desired consistency (I like it with a few chunks of tomato left). Add basil and whipping cream (if using) and stir to combine.

Serve topped with croutons.

Cheezy Croutons:

Preheat oven to 400° F.

In a small bowl, toss bread with ghee, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, salt and pepper to combine. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy, stirring once to ensure even cooking. Set aside to cool.
