Seven soups every Saturday: skinny tomato soup recipes

Curried tomato soup, from A Veggie Venture.

Creamy rich tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich: does any food pairing evoke childhood more than that? Like all moms in the 1950s, my mother was the queen of the red-and-white canned soup, and white bread sandwiches oozing processed American cheese. Don't get me wrong; I loved it then, and might love it still. However, my adult body craves something lighter, especially when it comes to soup. Skip the cream, load up on the tomato, add a bit of herbs and spices, maybe a companion sweet vegetable like red bell peppers or carrots. Skinnier soup, skinnier me.

Seven skinny tomato soup recipes caught my eye this week:

When I first had my own kitchen I bought American cheese for the sole purpose of making grilled cheese sandwiches. Good thing it never goes bad! I never bought it again, and now it's a good aged Vermont cheddar on whole grain bread. Still using butter -- that doesn't change.
Love all the soup choices!

Oh yes, perfect for this time of year!

Susan, it's hard to think of tomato soup without also thinking of grilled cheese sandwiches, isn't it?

Kalyn, absolutely, and you're so lucky to have your own garden tomatoes. My crop is very sad this year.
