This was absolutely delicious. Okay, so my picture isn’t perfect, the patty-melt is in the front, the soup has been slurped up a bit. But this is real life, not a photo shoot. :)
This was so simple, and it turned out perfect. If you don’t have a Vitamix, I’m sure you could achieve same results in a regular blender and then heat on the stove.
2 cans of diced tomatoes (original recipe called for italian style with oregano, basil and garlic) I didn’t have those, all I had was a can of stewed tomatoes and a can of diced tomatoes, so that’s what I used, and added a bit of basil leaves and garlic powder.
1 8 oz. block of cream cheese
A dash of sweetener (I used 3 drops of EZ-Sweetz) or sugar, about 1-2 teaspoons to cut the acidity.
I put all of this in the Vitamix and set it to soup, in 6 minutes, I had hot wonderful tomato soup. It keeps well, leftovers are great!
Since I used the Vitamix I didn’t soften the cream cheese to room temp, I just put it in cold, but if you’re blending in a regular blender I would soften cream cheese first...
I think I’ll try this same recipe with broccoli or cauliflower and add some cheddar cheese along with the cream cheese. Who would have thought soup could be so easy...
