Hi to all of 36th AVENUES friends.

 It’s Ruthie from What’s Cooking with Ruthie here to share another delicious recipe with you!

I was so happy to get to hang out and visit with Desirée at a blogging conference a few weeks ago.

We had dinner at a local restaurant where Desiree talked me into trying the Tomato Basil Soup which was delicious!

SO, I thought it’s be fun to share this delicious and skinny Tomato Basil Soup recipe!

It is every bit as delicious as the soup we ate that night.

Tomato Basil Soup is one of my most favorite soups in the whole world…

AND there’s no guilt with this recipe because it’s a skinny version that tastes like the real deal!

You’ll love it.

    I’m looking forward to cooking this tomato basil soup. I will let you know how it comes out.

    This soup was so yummy and delicious. Story:

    My husband really likes completely pureed soup, so I threw this soup all in the blender. Well the celery didn’t puree completely: there were still little bits. I knew he wouldn’t like that, so I just was eating the soup myself. (and loving it!)
    He became curious about what I was eating and I explained to him what was “wrong” with it. He insisted on eating it anyway and enjoyed it, though he did admit to not liking the celery bits.
    So next time I’m going to leave out the celery. That will solve that.

    Also, I went to a restaurant, Boudin, and ordered tomato soup that wasn’t nearly as good as this recipe.

    Now I feel like that was blatant flattery, so I’m stopping now.

    Lastly, I notice your last ingredient is “1 Tbsp sugar or agave sea salt and pepper to taste”
    You may want to break that into 2 lines or people will be looking for agave sea salt.
