If you’re a fan of tomato soup, this week’s Health-e-Recipe for Chilled Roasted Tomato Soup puts a fantastic, cancer-fighting summer version of it on your table.
Fresh tomatoes taste best in the summer. Cooked tomatoes become concentrated in lycopene, a phytochemical that has been found to help slow the growth of prostate cancer.
We add fresh basil and rosemary, two herbs that set off the rich taste of roasted tomatoes. With phytochemical-rich garlic, this simple soup is finished with a touch of balsamic vinegar and garnished with reduced-fat sour cream and parsley — another plant that has plenty of health-protecting phytochemicals.
