This makes a great low-calorie lunch for one. And can easily be scaled up for more servings.
Single-Serve Tomato Soup
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried basil leaves
Combine everything and heat until warm. Or microwave for 1-2 minutes on high.
I like to serve this with sliced cheddar cheese and whole wheat crackers, a grilled cheese sandwich, or a BLT sandwich, depending on my calorie goals for lunch that day. ☺
In case you’ve been living under a rock, maybe you aren’t familiar with Pinterest. It’s a website/app combo that is, essentially, a virtual peg board with social aspects. It works similar to bookmarking in a web browser with the added benefit of easily being able to share those websites with others.
I use Pinterest a lot and have found some really great things through it, like crafts, knitting/crochet patterns, sewing tips, household decor ideas, and recipes. I’ve tried a few recipes found through Pinterest, and it’s become my favorite place to look for new recipes to try. In fact, I’ve been working new Pinterest recipes into our menu on a regular basis in order to expand my repertoire, diet, and cooking skills.
And, since I’ve not been doing as much crafting lately, I thought I’d share my experiences with you all here. 🙂
creamy, cheesy goodness
The first recipe I’m sharing is one for Broccoli Cheese Soup from “Yammie’s Noshery.” If I’m going to ingest vegetables I’d prefer them to be floating in a sea of creamy, cheesy goodness. 🙂 This is, by far, my favorite broccoli cheese soup recipe out of the handful I’ve tried over the years. Paired with a big salad and crusty bread, this makes a great vegetarian meal and has been added to our regular rotation. I’ve been cooking more meatless meals to save money on our grocery budget, and this is a great option.
