Healthy dinner? No problem! ;)
Here's a menu for a soup-sandwich combo! Start with Chilled Tomato Soup, next comes Turkey Veggie Wraps and a side of Tangy Coleslaw. Also included is a delicious smoothie recipe =)
Chilled Tomato Soup:
1/4 cup olive oil
3 cups peeled and thinly sliced onions
3 tablespoons thinly sliced garlic
2 bay leaves
4 pounds firm, heirloom tomatoes, cored, seeded, and cut into eighths
1 tablespoon plus 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon thyme leaves
4 cups water
2 cups chicken stock
2 tablespoons lemon juice
In a large saucepan over medium heat, heat the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions and saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and bay leaves and cook for 5 more minutes. Add the tomatoes, 1 tablespoon salt, and thyme and cook for 15 minutes or until the tomatoes soften. Add the water and stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and continue to cook until the tomatoes are very tender, about 10 minutes. Remove the bay leaves. Using a handheld blender, puree the soup until smooth. Chill the soup. Add 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice and hot sauce to taste, as desired.
Turkey Veggie Wraps:
2 cups coarsely chopped smoked turkey breast (about 8 ounces)
2 cups gourmet salad greens
1/2 cup fresh corn kernels (about 1 ear)
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
3 tablespoons light ranch dressing
4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, tossing well to coat. Warm tortillas according to package directions. Top each tortilla with 1 cup turkey mixture; roll up. Cut each wrap in half diagonally.
Combine 1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise, 1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish, 1 teaspoon dry mustard, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Toss with half of a 16-ounce package cabbage-and-carrot coleslaw; cover and chill.
Yogurt n Fruit Smoothie:
2 cups fat-free milk
1 (8-ounce) container vanilla low-fat yogurt
1/2 cup thawed pineapple-orange juice concentrate
2 cups frozen strawberries
1 banana, coarsely chopped
Process all ingredients in a blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Serve immediately
