So easy, so good! My kids and husband love this easy (cleanse-friendly) recipe, and my weight loss group this month has been raving about it.
1 tbsp olive oil
3 small shallots, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 can or jar of no salt-added whole tomatoes
2 c. low-sodium veggie stock
1/3 c. fresh basil
grated rind of a lemon
1/4 cup nutritional yeast (find in health food section of the grocery store)
1&1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
*for a heartier soup, stir in 1.5 c. white beans (well-rinsed if canned)
In a soup pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add shallots and garlic, and cook for a few minutes until shallots are translucent.
Add remaining ingredients, stir, and bring to a boil, then remove pot from heat and let cool slightly.
Blend with an immersion blender or in batches in a stand blender.
