By • August 14, 2011 • 1 Comments



Author Notes: I've been over purchasing yellow and red cherry tomatoes from the farmer's market. I decided to make a healthy tomato soup to get my teens to eat more vegetables.snippetsofthyme

  • 3 garlic pods, sliced
  • 3 cups yellow and red cherry tomatoes,halved
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves, chopped
  • dashes white wine
  • 32 ounces chicken or vegetable broth
  • splashes half and half
  • salt and pepper to taste

Just made this - looking for a simple tomato soup and this was it. I use recipes as guidelines and usually change things according to what I have on hand. I used sage instead of basil and added plain greek yogurt instead of cream. Came out great and super easy. Thanks for posting!
