Spanish Tomato Basil Soup - HCG Phase 2

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

This soup is SO delicious, you can serve it at any time (not just during HCG diet). Counts for 1 vegetable. It makes quite a lot, so I've listed it as 2 servings, but if you're REALLY hungry, can count for one. Taken from The HCG Diet Cookbook Gourmet Success.

This was so satisfying! I didn't purée it because I like my soup with more texture so I just diced the veggies well. Made enough for dinner and lunch the next day! Thanks Coffee Criss!
