Taken from Rachel Ray's 30 Minute Meals.
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 large onion, chopped
3 ribs celery, chopped with greens
3 cloves garlic, chopped
Salt and pepper
1 (28-ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1 can crushed tomatoes
2 cups vegetable or chicken stock
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro or flat-leaf parsley
Heat a medium soup pot over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan and the jalapenos, bell pepper, onions, celery and garlic. Season with salt and pepper then saute veggies 5 minutes, add tomatoes, crushed tomatoes and stock and bring soup to a bubble. Reduce heat to a simmer and stir in cilantro.
This is so easy to make and it fills you up. Also tastes good the day after as a cold soup, which is especially good for the summer.
There is something that I have to tell you. And when I tell you, I hope that you are not too shocked or surprised. I never thought that this would happen to me, but here it is and I just have to take a deep breath and let people know.
As a lifestyle change, this is a big one for me and I hope that everyone will be supportive.
