Tomato Soup

Happy Friday Fellow Foodies!
The clouds are rolling in, and the forecast is predicting cooler temperatures and rain on the way for the Antelope Valley. This has me feeling a lot like it's "soup weather". I have recently perfected my tomato soup recipe for the Vitamixer. I have discovered that using fresh garlic and onions made the soup very harsh in flavor. So I have toned down the strength of flavor by using powdered spices and bouillon. The carrots add the sweetness you need without adding sugar. The low fat sour cream add smoothness and tang without making the soup unhealthy. You can omit the peppercorns if you don't like zesty flavors as well. BON APPETITE!!!!

Don't despair if you don't have a Vitamixer. Just puree your soup in any blender and cook it on the stove top for about 15 minutes.

Vitamixer Tomato Carrot Soup
5-6 Roma tomatoes
1 cup baby carrots
2 Tbs. low far sour cream
1 Knorr Chicken bouillon cube
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
5-8 black peppercorns.

Place everything into you carafe in the order listed.

Starting on the lowest speed, and slowly turning the machine all the way to high, puree the mixture until smooth. If you are using your vita mixer, set a times for seven minutes and allow the soup to cook in the carafe.

If you are using a mere mortal blender, once the soup is smooth, transfer it to a sauce pan and simmer for about 10-15 minutes. Serve with a little spoonful of sour cream or creme fraiche on the and top and garnish as you like.
