Tasty Tueasday: Tomato Soup

Creamy Tomato Soup with Brown Butter Garlic Croutons



2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 sweet onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons tomato paste
2 (28-ounce) cans whole, peeled tomatoes
4 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock
1/3 cup mascarpone cheese
1/3 cup freshly grated havarti cheese
2 cups cubed whole grain bread
3 tablespoons brown butter
2 garlic cloves, minced


Heat a large soup pot oven medium-low heat and add olive oil and butter. Add onions, salt, pepper, seasonings and smoked paprika, then stir well to coat. Cook until onions are soft and translucent, about 5-6 minutes. Stir in garlic and tomato paste, using the back of the spoon well to mash the tomato paste and evenly distribute it throughout the onions. Cook for another 5-6 minutes or so, stirring occasionally, allowing the tomato paste to become golden in spots.
Add in both cans of the tomatoes (with juice) and the stock, bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and let bubble for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. While the mixture is simmering, I occasionally mashed the tomatoes down just to make them easier to blend.
While the soup is cooking, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Brown the butter and let it sit for 2-3 minutes, then toss in the minced garlic cloves and stir for 30 seconds. Add bread cubes to a large bowl and pour the garlic/butter mixture over top, tossing well to coat. Place the bread cubes on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, tossing once or twice during cooking. If you desire them more golden, bake a little longer - just keep an eye on them.
After the hour is up, very carefully add the mixture to a blender (you will probably have to do this in two parts) and puree until totally smooth. Add back to the pot over low heat. Stir in the mascarpone and havarti, stirring until it's completely melted. Taste and season additionally with salt and pepper if needed. Serve in big bowls with an extra dollop of mascarpone and bunch of croutons on top.

Lauren Conrad: Get Fit Plan

The Rules

  • Like my other plans, this is a lifestyle change so don’t think of it as a diet. The goal here is to feel good and look great.
  • Stay focused and remind yourself daily of why you want to get fit and healthy! Flex that willpower.
  • Drink lots of water. Aim to drink an ounce for every pound you weigh.
  • As soon as you wake up, have some lemon water. Try to do this at least 3 times a week. (If you do it every single day, it can make your teeth a bit sensitive.)
  • Pick one exercise from the “Exercise Options” list to do every day (save one day for rest). 
  • Do all of the exercises listed under “Everyday Exercises” list each day in addition to your selected workout.
  • Pick one meal from each category for each day, in addition to one snack.
  • To get your metabolism revving, give these tricks a try. Personally, I swear by green tea.
  • My trainer, Jarett Del Bene, suggests this as well: “To help build lean muscle, incorporate protein after your workouts, such as Muscle Milk Light.” 

The Off-Limits List

  • No candy, baked goods, or ice cram. Ideally, no sugar!
  • No soda or flavored drinks. Remember—water!
  • No white bread.
  • No fried foods. None!
  • No eating 2-3 hours before bed. (Your body needs time to digest!) 

Breakfast Options

  • Any of the breakfast options from my 7 Days to Skinny Jeans Plan or Bikini Boot Camp are approved.
  • Greek yogurt with a handful of berries, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, and 1 tablespoon of slivered almonds
  • Egg White Omelet
  • Overnight Oats  
  • One slice of toast with two hard-boiled eggs and a side of grapefruit or pineapple
  • Slim-Down Smoothie
  • Protein Pancakes: Mix together ¼ cup egg whites, 1 small mashed up banana, 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (whey is good), 1 pinch of cinnamon, and 1 handful of berries. Cook like a normal pancake and top off with a drizzle of agave.

Lunch & Dinner Options

Snack Options

  • Greek yogurt with chia seeds
  • Crackers with a slide of avocado and a dollop of hummus
  • Apple
  • Raw vegetables
  • Grapefruit

  • All natural popcorn
  • Sliced turkey rolled in lettuce with a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette

  • Alternate walking and sprinting for 60 seconds for 20 minutes
  • 1 hour of yoga, kickboxing, Pilates, hiking, or spin
