5 Minute Tomato Soup with Parmesan Croutons
This creamy tomato soup is just as quick to prepare as opening a can of of processed tomato soup- without all the junk, and the bonus of added protein! Now that sounds like a win to me! The parmesan croutons are crunch and salty, taking this soup over the top! You will never go back to canned tomato soup again after trying this healthy version!
1 (15 oz) can Crushed tomatoes
1 (15 oz) can Diced tomatoes
1 (15 oz) can Tomato sauce
1/4 cup Grated parmesan cheese
3/4 cup Plain low fat Greek yogurt (I like Cabot Greek Yogurt)
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/2-1 tsp Salt (to taste)
1/4-1/2 tsp Pepper (to taste)
Optional: pinch of sweetener of choice or honey (to taste)
Parmesan Croutons (optional):
1/2 cup Grated parmesan cheese
- Microwave: Spray a microwave safe plate with cooking spray. Form parmesan into 4 even mounds on the plate (2 tbs parmesan each), and microwave for 30-60 seconds, or until the parmesan melts and starts to ‘bake’ into a crisp.* (You will know it is done when each parmesan crisp is crispy enough to crumble.)* Wait to cool, then crumble over soup.
- Oven: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking pan with foil or parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Form parmesan into 4 even mounds on the baking pan (2 tbs parmesan each), and bake for 3-5, or until the parmesan melts and starts to bake into a crisp. (You will know it is done when each parmesan crisp is crispy enough to crumble.) Wait to cool, then crumble over soup.
2. To Make the Soup: Put all of the ingredients for the soup into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into individual bowls and microwave until it reaches the temperature you desire (or put soup in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until it is warmed through). Serve with parmesan croutons crushed over the soup if desired!
