Yesterday I made fresh tomato soup with tomatoes from Full Earth farm. Sauteé red onion and garlic in coconut oil , add cut up tomatoes, salt, pepper and oregano; after half an hour of simmering gently and adding some water it will blend up into a tasty soup. Call up your creativity!
Don’t forget legumes. Chick peas, split yellow lentils, black beans, navy beans add protein and texture. Thinking ahead is important though, because most of these do best with an all-night soak before cooking. Turmeric, chilis, rosemary are a few of the possibilities for additional flavors. Studies have shown that people eat less when they begin a meal with soup. The warmth of soup will aid digestion and not overload it.
