Among the fun, rich indulgences of the holidays, I imagine that you might be ready to incorporate some lighter fare into your diet as well.  I love all of the decadent foods that we enjoy at the this time of year, but it’s also nice to balance out the treats with something a bit healthier.  If you feel the same way, then today’s Tomato Basil Soup recipe is for you!

Even though I typically think of fall and winter as “soup seasons,” this Tomato Basil Soup is one of those recipes that I make year-round because everyone loves it!

Serve it with a grilled cheese sandwich on the side and you can’t find an easier, faster, or more family-friendly weeknight meal.

And while a cup of Tomato Basil Soup is total comfort-food during the cool weather months, I also love to serve it for lunch or dinner in the summer when I can pluck the fresh basil straight out of my garden.

If I had to pick only one soup to have for the rest of my life, this would definitely be it!  Rustic, simple, absolutely delicious…and ready for consumption in about 30 minutes!
