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)

To prepare:

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.
