Roasted Tomato Soup
The tomatoes are still overflowing in our backyard garden. I picked these beautiful tomatoes to make oven roasted tomato soup from Dreena's The EveryDay Vegan. Roasting these tomatoes in the oven for over an hour really enhanced the flavour.
Here is the soup after it has been pureed and served up.
This soup was accompanied by a hearty fresh salad.
Why was this dinner a nutritional home run? Eating fresh seasonal organic vegetables (and all of the vegetables in my garden are organic) is a fantastic way to boost your nutritional income. Colourful fruits and vegetables such as the tomatoes contain health-protective phytonutrients that promote optimal health. Eating raw food with your cooked food gives your body healthy enzymes that help to digest your food. Also eating a huge green salad such as this one helps to fill you up with less calories. Also, the increased fiber content means that the food will pass through your bodily more easily. All you protein enthusiasts need not worry. All these greens do contain some protein, however the nuts and the hemp nut seeds boost the protein count of this dinner.
