{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} Satisfying Tomato Soup (Diabetic Exchanges/Quick)


Satisfying Tomato Soup

After craving tomato soup, I decided to make my own. My sister Joan likes it chunky-style, so she doesn't puree. Serve it with a grilled cheese sandwich. —Marian Brown, Mississauga, ON

TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 minutes.
