Sounds mighty good — and caloric.
I'm posting my soup recipe again.
2 tablespoons olive oil (I use extra light.)
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 carton (32 ounces) unsalted chicken broth
1 can (28 ounces) tomato puree
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt (may be reduced or omitted)
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
Pour olive oil into soup pot. Add chopped onion and saute over medium heat for 5 min. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Ladle into bowls and garnish with shaved Parmesan if desired. Makes 8 servings. This recipe is from my book, The Family Caregiver's Cookbook.
Thanks for your post Mary. I have three leaking heart valves and am getting ready for surgery. So far, I've lost about nine pounds and have another 10 to go. Cooking from scratch has helped me monitor my salt intake and lose some weight. Besides, I think homemade meals taste better.
