So my new thing is having soup every day for lunch. To make it easy on myself (since I'm fixing the kids different food), I decided to buy a bunch of ready-to-serve soups at Trader Joe's. Today I hit on a real winner. Here is how I turned packaged soup into a fine dining experience...
Ingredients: 16 oz Trader Joe's Organic Creamy Tomato Soup (half box) 1 oz X-tra X-tra Sharp New York Cheddar Cheese 1 t Garlic Olive Oil fresh basil, torn into small pieces freshly ground pepper
1. Pour soup into glass measuring cup. Microwave for two minutes. 2. While soup is heating, grate cheese (I weighed mine in a plastic bag on a food scale), and place in bottom of bowl. 3. Pour soup into bowl and stir in remaining ingredients.
Thus concludes my 350 calorie lunch, which I definitely plan to have again, maybe even tomorrow.
