Low-Fat "cream" of Tomato Soup

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MsSally

This is a easy low cal dinner. With a grilled cheese (light butter and light or fat-free cheese) and a salad round out the meal. Freezes excellently. Makes a big batch and can easily be doubled.

This is the best tomato soup I've ever had. I omitted the onion, but still made a roux with butter and flour. I used a 46 oz can of vegetable juice, and I didn't add the cream cheese. I tasted it before adding salt & pepper, and I thought it tasted good, but could use some spices. I added some garlic powder, onion powder, and basil. It was delicious! I plan on making this often. We had it with grilled cheese and it was a delicious, filling meal.
