This month’s All You Magazine has some delicious recipes inside! With my 30 Day Challenge I was pretty excited to try the Tomato and White Bean Soup (page 75).
The base of this recipe is really good. It’s a very inexpensive recipe and is a great way to use up leftovers. Unfortunately, I the recipe as written didn’t have a lot of flavor so I free-styled. I made several versions of this recipe in an attempt to spice it up a bit. My favorite was adding 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1 tsp of cajun seasoning. It was also very good and probably more kid friendly when adding two cloves of garlic, 1 tsp of sugar, and 1/4 tsp of sage.
*Tip: When using tomato paste, freeze your leftover by dropping spoonfuls on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Once it’s frozen, remove from the cookie sheet, fold, and place in a freezer bag. BAM!!
