Bacon-Tomato Soup for One (S)

I love soup anytime of the year!  I know we are in the middle of the summer in Ohio, but I still enjoy a nice hot bowl of soup for lunch. Low carb, gluten free and bacon infused soup is even better!  I’d used part of a can of tomato sauce for my son’s spaghetti lunch and had a cup sitting there left over.  I started to brainstorm and this is what I came up with.  I LOVED it!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Tbs heavy cream or half and half
  • 1 wedge Light Laughing Cow Cheese or 2 Tbs of mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil, or use fresh
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder, or use fresh
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • pepper
  • 4 strips crispy bacon (turkey or pork)
  • 1 Tbs THM collagen or Custom Collagen (optional)
  • 1 doonk of THM Stevia extract 
  • mozzarella cheese for garnish with a little bit of the chopped bacon

Directions:

I added all the ingredients into my small sauce pan and let them simmer. Keep the stovetop on low heat. Cut the Laughing Cow Cheese up in little pieces so it will melt faster or you can just use some mozzarella.  I loved having a bit of creamy cheese in my soup. I did put the heavy cream and collagen in near the end.  Let it simmer for 10-15 minutes or so.  I could really taste the bacon-y goodness after it melted together in the pan for that long.  Don’t let it sit without stirring too much or tomato sauce tends to scald in the pan. Stir it here and there. Adjust for your taste.  If you want more basil, add some! If you want another Tbs of heavy cream, that’s your call!  I think it was just perfect as I’ve written it up.  You can easily multiple this soup and make a batch for the whole family!

  1. Mmmm… Sounds good, Jennifer. Thank you! Do I understand correctly that you added the cream and collagen at the end of the 15 minutes? Do you just cook it a minute or two after adding them? I haven’t used collagen much in my cooking. Thanks again!

      • I put collagen in everything hot, but always stir it into a bit of cold liquid first – (in this case I’d use the water) and make sure it’s dissolved before adding to the pot.

        This recipe looks like a keeper! Who doesn’t already love tomato soup, but then bacon????? Sounds heavenly!

    • I just use whatever is on sale. I think this time it was Hunt’s. I buy cartons of it at Walmart.
