Let food be thy medicine...

Antioxidants in general, prevent the accelerated oxidation process in your cells which can cause the onset of Cancer. This soup is a lighter version of your regular Tomato Soup and is packed with the strong antioxidant  Lycopene!

Lycopene has been found to aid in the prevention of certain Cancers and also maintains the health of the cardiovascular system. You can find it in red pigmented fruits and vegetables and when cooking your tomatoes, the absorption of Lycopene in the body  is even higher.

You can make this soup thicker or thinner depending on your taste.  When using fresh tortellini, make sure that they are not over cooked.  Prepare your soup base  first and then add the tortellini.  You kids will lick their fingers with this delicious soup all year round and will be adding a strong antioxidant to their bodies which will aid their immune system!

Tomato-Basil Soup

Perfect for those winter days or make it thinner for milder days.
