Hopefully, you are following me on IG or Facebook @kimjuulnutrition. I try to post recipes a couple times a week or more. My goal is to get the details posted here.
Yesterday, we celebrated my daughter's birthday and her favorite thing to eat at daycare currently is tomato soup. She had 3 bowls last week, half of which may have ended up on her dress by the looks of it. I contemplated buying the soup in a can because I figured it would be very similar to what she gets and also a whole letter easier than making soup. But, alas, I felt like a bad mom and dietitian and foodie, so I made it from scratch.
I used the Skinny Taste recipe for Crock Pot Creamy Tomato Soup. Everyone, but my birthday daughter enjoyed it :(. It has a little bit of prep, but then it all gets cooked in the crockpot. I needed it a little faster so, I just cooked it on the stove top. I think it would have tasted even better with some fresh basil stirred in before serving. For the record, I used the San Marzano tomatoes from a can.
