Another recipe from my Blendtec cookbook in the quest to use up the last of the garden tomatoes. I thought I was doing pretty good until Bob brought in another huge bowl yesterday so now I’m right back where I started!
2 Roma tomatoes or 1 beefsteak tomato, quartered
1/2 large carrot
1″ slice red pepper, approximately 1/3 cup
1/4 avocado, approximately 1/4 cup avocado flesh
1 chunk onion, approximately 2 tablespoons
1 oz pepper jack cheese
2 sprigs fresh cilantro (variation – in place of cilantro, 6 medium basil leaves and 1/2 tablespoon agave nectar)
1 teaspoon no salt herb seasoning
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups warm water
Add ingredients to jar in order listed and secure lid. Select “soups” and serve. For more texture, pulse in additional ingredients such as 1/2 cup tortilla chips, black beans, corn kernels, cheese, chicken or fresh tomato. (I added a can of black beans and a can of corn.) I thought this soup was a little blah so I added 1 teaspoon of pepper and also 1 teaspoon of this garlic seasoning mix that I have from Alyson’s Pantry. It was still a little blah so I told the boys to eat it with some salsa and/or sour cream to jazz it up. It wasn’t terrible just so-so.
