Cooking Tip Icon

Cooking Tip: Don’t have fresh basil? Just stir in 2 teaspoons dried basil at the start of the recipe, along with the garlic powder.

Keep it Healthy Icon

Keep it Healthy: Many canned tomatoes are packed with extra sodium; make sure to look on the label for tomatoes with no salt added.

Tip: Stirring in a touch of baking soda into the soup once it is off the heat is a trick to reduce the acidity from the tomatoes—just a tiny step that greatly improves the soup’s flavor.
