Easy Creamy Tomato Soup

Hey! How has your Wednesday been? Mine has actually been really good! The weather held up for most of the day, so I got to run the errands I put off yesterday and now have another pair of work pants that fit! Woohoo. I had an awesome snack in the afternoon around 4:30.

A plain Chobani with a packet of Truvia, a crushed Weetabix biscuit, and 1 tbsp coconut flakes. Delicious. As soon as 5pm rolled around, it started sprinkling outside, but it was still pretty warm, so I came home and decided to go for a run. It actually felt GREAT. There were parts of the run that were tough (miles 1-2, and 4.5-5.5) but overall it was much better than Saturday, and the light rain actually kept me cool. I also remember my ipod shuffle this time, which was a lifesaver. 🙂

Stats:

Distance: 6.00 miles

Duration: 58:35

Avg Pace: 9:46 min/mile

Avg Speed: 6.1 mph

Calories Burned: 701

I’m glad to be back to running where it actually feels good! 🙂

After my run, I made an easy, delicious Creamy Tomato Soup that you have to try! This recipe is courtesy of my sister Wendy, with a few tweaks by me. This is all you need for the soup:

Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp oil of choice (I used olive)
  • 1/2 white onion, chopped
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (I used organic fire roasted)
  • 1 container plain Chobani (You can substitute half and half)

Directions:

  1. Heat 2 tsp oil in a pot over medium heat
  2. Add chopped onion and cook for 5 minutes until onion is soft, not browned
  3. Add can of tomatoes, juice and all, and stir in with onion
  4. Continue to cook for 5 minutes
  5. Mix with a hand blender, or a regular blender (but be careful not to close the lid fully since the soup will be hot!) to desired consistency. I left mine a little chunky because I like the soup that way.
  6. Mix in Chobani or desired amount of 1/2 and 1/2 and keep over the flame until heated through
  7. Garnish soup however you like. I used shredded cheddar.

This recipe makes 2 good sized bowls of soup (with 2 WW points each if you use the same ingredients I did) and is creamy, chunky, and delicious!

I had the soup with a toasted everything bagel thin with an over easy egg and more cheddar.

Such an easy and delicious dinner! I looove cream of tomato soup and this version is delicious and healthy too!

Dessert was 1/2 a mango, chopped up.

Off to catch up on the Biggest Loser and take it easy! Goodnight!

    Nice job on your run!! Don’t you just love runs like that 🙂

    Your sister’s tomato soup is very clever! I never would have thought of putting yogurt in it! That sounds delicious 🙂

      Yep! Definitely works with SFT. And you can use FF cheese on it to go with the SF theme 🙂

    That soup looks delish – how big is the container of Chobani you used? Is it the size you see with the “flavored” ones. Or the “big” container?

    Awesome run by the way – I’m dying to increase my speed so I’m under an 11 min mile! (I currently average 12). My first speed work workout is tonight!

      That was just a regular 6 oz chobani. My speed varies but usually around 10 minute miles or a little under. Trying to work back up my endurance after taking almost a month off unintentionally!

    Greek yogurt with soup is one of my favorite things. I usually just dollop it on top of tomato or butternut squash soup and it gets all hot and melty 🙂
