Easy Clean Tomato Soup

Who here loves a nice hot bowl of soup on a cold day? 
I do!! 
It takes that bone cold chill you sometimes get right away!! 

In the past I use to grab for my favorite canned soups but once I realized how much extra stuff they have in them I quickly looked for some new clean recipes that were easy enough to make.  Feel free to share if you have any homemade soup recipes that you love!  

Previously I had made a homemade tomato soup which was wonderful but it took more time to prepare and yesterday I didn't have that kind of time so I went looking for an easier, quicker recipe.  Thanks to thegraciouspantry.com I was able to find a quick, easy, and very tasty tomato soup.

Enjoy and let me know if you try it!!

Easy Clean Tomato Soup

1 15 ounce can of clean tomato sauce (or make your own)
1/2 cup low sodium chicken stock 
1 cup water
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon parsley
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 bouillon cube
1 cup unsweetened milk (I used skim milk)

1. Mix all ingredients together in a pot. 
2. Bring to a bowl and then let simmer for 5 minutes

We enjoyed our soup with Crustless Spinach Quiche. The two complemented each other very well!! Please note the soup does have a bit of a kick to it which my husband and I loved but our kids didn't. Next time I will tone it down a bit. 

Now is the time to learn how to
Live a Fit, Happy, and Healthy life
and WE will do it
