Hunt’s® Fire-Roasted Tomato Vegetable Soup #HuntsRecipes

Hunt's® Fire-Roasted Tomato Vegetable Soup | At This Mama Cooks! On a Diet - thismamacooks.com

There’s nothing better than homemade vegetable soup on a cold winter’s night. Or when you just got your braces tightened, like my son Nathan, and want something easy to eat. Luckily, this Hunt’s Signature Recipe is as easy to make as it is to eat. All you need to do is cut up a large zucchini, carrots, and an onion, add some spices and Hunt’s Tomatoes, a little water, and some frozen corn and you’re ready to go. With all these heart healthy vegetables, this is a terrific recipe to celebrate American Heart Month, too!

But before I share the recipe with you, could you take a minute to fill out a quick survey about tomatoes? Thanks!

Yes, you can make soup from scratch on a weeknight!

We’re all busy, busy, busy especially on weeknights when everyone’s coming home starving from work or after school activities. To cut the prep time in half, use frozen precut zucchini, onions, and carrots. Just adjust the timing to completely cook through the vegetables.

If you have a little extra time, make a double batch and freeze half. That way, you have a batch ready to go on those nights when you’re too busy to cook. Just defrost and heat up the soup in the microwave or on the stove top.

Finally, a few pointers. First, adding freshly grated Parmesan cheese to your individual soup bowl is so worth the calories. Yum! It’s easy to grate a bit over your soup bowl. However, you can save time by buying a container of grated, fresh Parmesan at the grocery store. (Please don’t use that weird powdered “Parmesan” that comes in cans in the spaghetti sauce section. The fresh stuff is so much tastier.)

Second, if you think the vegetable soup may be too spicy for you or your family, cut back on the ground red pepper. Instead, have a bottle of hot sauce on the table for those who like their food spicy and hot!

Third, smoked paprika is different from regular paprika. Its smokiness adds a lot to this soup recipe, so it’s worth buying if smoked paprika is not already in your spice cabinet.

Heart healthy cooking with Hunt’s tomatoes #HuntsRecipes

Heart healthy cooking with Hunt's tomatoes #HuntsRecipes

Most folks know it’s important incorporate vegetables in our diets, but trying to get kids (and their picky parents) to eat them can be a chore! That’s why I’m a big advocate for cooking with tomato sauce and diced tomatoes from cans. First, Hunt’s tomatoes are full of antioxidants like lycopene. Second, they’re super convenient to use, especially when you have to get a meal on the table in half an hour. That’s why I’m working with Hunt’s during American Hearth Month to introduce you to their Signature Recipe Collection and show you why Hunt’s is a delicious, convenient and healthy tomato brand with which to cook.

But before I tell you about the Hunt’s tomato difference, could you take a minute to fill out a quick survey about tomatoes? Thanks!

The Hunt’s tomato difference – FlashSteam®

Hunt's uses FlashSteam® to peel their diced, whole, stewed, and crushed tomatoes. Other tomato brands use chemicals to peel theirs. Hunt’s also harvests their tomatoes at the peak of freshness. And all of their diced, whole, stewed, and crushed tomatoes go from farm to can in just a matter of hours. Not only does that lock in flavor and nutrition, it makes for great tasting tomatoes, too.

Rediscovering Hunt’s products

Now I’ve always known that Hunt’s made tomato sauce and diced tomatoes, but I had no idea about their diced fire roasted tomatoes. Or that their diced tomatoes came with seasoning already added like their basil, garlic and oregano variety that comes with or without salt. I also recently discovered that you can now get Hunt’s tomato sauce in Tetra Pak boxes, which comes in handy when you’re making up a big batch of spaghetti sauce.

Just more ways to get those heart healthy Hunt’s tomato products into your cooking!

Hunt’s Signature Recipe Collection

For American Heart Month, I’ll be sharing a few healthy recipes from Hunt’s Signature Recipe Collection. I picked ones that are perfect busy nights when you don’t have a lot of time, are family friendly, and can easily be adapted for parties and casual entertaining.
