Super Healthy Diet-worthy Tomato Soup

25 Jul

So after more than a few months of being injured and carrying a little more weight than I’m happy to, I decided to cut back on the calories a bit and try to stop eating the crap (I’m looking at you, Blue Bell ice cream).

This soup (made it last night), is not only super tasty and protein-enriched, but also very low-cal (230 for a large serving). And it includes one of my favorite veggies– cauliflower!

I have leftovers for lunch, and I’m psyched for them!

Ingredients

  • 8 small/medium tomatoes
  • Italian seasoning, salt, pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 c fat-free cottage cheese

Method

  • Roast tomatoes, onions, and garlic (whole) in a baking dish sprayed with Pam at 400 for ~1 hr, with Pam spray on top with the Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste.
  • While this is roasting, steam the cauliflower until tender.
  • Once the tomatoes, onions, and garlic are done (this should make your house smell amazing), put them through a food mill, or if you don’t have one, just use the blender. Add the cauliflower and cottage cheese, and add a bit more salt if you’re feeling it.
