FUN FACTS & HEALTH BENEFITS OF TOMATO
Tomato is the only fruit in this vegetable soup medley.
In earlier times, many people believed tomatoes were poisonous, so they did not become popular until later years.
Luckily it did!
They are synonymous with lycopene, the phytonutrient that protects against cancer in humans. A USDA Agricultural Research Service study found that lycopene levels were about three times greater in organic vs. regular ketchup.
Because this organic advantage probably applies to all tomato products, choose organic tomatoes and tomato products when possible.
How to Select and Store: Look for organic tomatoes that have a deep, rich color, which indicates a high level of lycopene.
The skins should be smooth and without soft spots.
Ripe tomatoes yield to slight pressure and smell sweet.
To ripen at home, keep them at room temp out of direct sunlight.
To speed up ripening, place tomatoes in a paper bag with a banana or apple.

I normally don’t leave comments for recipes, but I feel like IU had to with this soup bc of how delicious it came out. The only things I didn’t add were taco seasoning & corn bc I didn’t have any. I also swapped the 3-4 sweet peppers for one full red bell pepper (seeded) and one garlic clove for the garlic salt so I could control the sodium after the soup was done. Great job with the recipe. It’s only our second day with Vitamix a3500 and we’re in love with it. 😀
