The Many Benefits of Tomatoes
Tomatoes are so versatile and packed with healthy nutrients like fiber, phytochemicals, and essential vitamins and minerals. Fun fact, although usually used as a vegetable, tomatoes are technically fruits from a botanical perspective. They contain a powerful phytonutrient called lycopene which is an antioxidant that protects your heart and is effective against certain cancers. Lycopene is best consumed from cooked tomatoes, therefore this soup recipe ensures an antioxidant boost!

How to Make the Classic Recipe
Simple yet delicious, this recipe very well could become your family’s favorite go-to soup. Not only is it super healthy, but it’s ready in just 30 minutes!
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. While that heats up, evenly spread your tomatoes, garlic, onion, and basil over a lined baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, then place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Once finished, remove the tray from the oven and pour everything into a food processor. Process until smooth, then pour into a saucepan over medium-low heat and stir in light cream. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes, then remove from the heat. Top if off with parmesan and the remaining basil, and enjoy!
