Creamy Tomato and Spinach Soup – Low Carb

I love soup.

That bears repeating.

I.  Love.  Soup.

Let’s bold that phrase.

I. LOVE. SOUP.

Okay, so being on Atkins I didn’t think there would be a decent soup that I could make.  I checked out pinterest and I found a recipe for TOMATO SOUP.

I like tomato soup, but in this family, I have to make 2 pots of soup to fill us up, so I found another recipe for CHEESY BROCCOLI SOUP.

I made them, tonight.

The tomato soup recipe, that I followed, sucked.

Not just a little bit sucked, but a pucker your lips and smack your mama kind of sucked.

Nasty.

What does a girl do?

She wings it and she SCORES!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fantastical!

So, here you go 🙂

Creamy Tomato and Spinach Soup

2 T. butter

1/2 c. onion (I ended up using minced onions, but a real onion would’ve been delicious)

28 oz. undrained and diced tomatoes (I run them through the food processor because Big Daddy doesn’t like tomato chunks)

LOTS of seasoning

2 c. water

2 chicken bouillion cubes

parsley

2 T. sour cream

Spinach

3 oz. cream cheese

3-4 T. splenda

1/4 c. tomato sauce

Let all that yumminess simmer together and then watch the heavens open up!

Servings:  10

Carbs per serving:  4
