Tomato Basil Soup

Ingredients

  • 4 cups chopped seeded peeled tomato (about 4 large)
  • 4 cups low-sodium tomato juice
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
  • Basil leaves, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 8 (1/2-inch-thick) slices diagonally cut French bread baguette

Directions

Bring tomato and juice to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 30 minutes.

Place tomato mixture and basil in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Return pureed mixture to pan; stir in milk, salt, and pepper. Add cream cheese, stirring well with a whisk, and cook over medium heat until thick (about 5 minutes). Ladle soup into individual bowls; garnish with sliced basil, if desired. Serve with bread.
