Fresh Tomato Carrot Soup 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This is a most delicious tomato soup. I prefer to use fresh tomatoes but you may use canned if you prefer. I like to make a country loaf of gluten free bread to serve with this but a chive and goat cheese corn bread or French bread would work as well.

Ingredients:
3c fresh tomatoes peeled and chopped
or 1 28oz can whole tomatoes undrained
2 slices of GF bacon finely chopped
1 small onion finely chopped
1 medium carrot grated
2c chicken broth or water
¼ tsp paprika
? tsp pepper
4 tsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp water


Directions:
Finely chop tomatoes and set aside. Chop onion and set aside. Grate carrot and set aside. Chop the bacon and place in a medium size pot. Brown the bacon. Drain fat reserving 1 Tbsp of the bacon fat in the pot. Sauté the onion with the browned bacon 3 – 4 minutes. Add carrots. tomatoes (plus liquid if using canned) and broth. Stir. Bring to a boil. Add seasonings. Simmer 10 minutes.
Combine cornstarch and water into a smooth paste. Add to soup stirring constantly until thickened. Adjust for salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with fresh bread of your choice.
Makes 5 (1cup) servings.

Wellness Tip
Five minute de-stressors
People often say they are "stressed" when their normal coping mechanisms have been overwhelmed. If you need to decrease stress and improve coping, consider taking at least one 5 minute, de-stress break each day, preferably more. You can try different 5 minute activities throughout the week. These include stretching, daydreaming, deep breathing, reading a few pages of a novel, doodling, listening to your favorite song, or going for a quick walk. These mini "me" times provide a quick break and allow you a chance to regain emotional and mental control in difficult situations.

Recipe
Cous Cous Salad with Tomatoes and Beans
Category: Salads
Description: Cous Cous - So good they had to name it twice. Couscous (pronounced Koose-Koose. Due to its quick preparation and health benefits, the popularity of this dish is quickly growing in other parts of the world as well. Including couscous in your diet provides several health benefits. A 1 cup serving of couscous provides 43 mcg of selenium, or 61% of the 70 mcg daily value. This is a trace mineral that the body needs in small quantities, acting as an antioxidant and protecting healthy cells from the mutating effects of toxins that change the DNA and structural composition, leading to disease and premature aging.
The potassium in couscous provides important functions, such as regulating blood pressure and the heartbeat. Potassium helps control fluid balance, an important factor in blood pressure regulation. It also assists with muscle contractions, and because the heart is a muscle, it requires potassium to prevent arrythmias, or irregularities of the heartbeat. A 1 cup serving of couscous provides 91mg of potassium, or 39% of the 3,500 mg the FDA recommends to get daily.
