Tomato Vegetable Soup - only 100 calories per serving!

2 cans of diced tomatoes (I used Hunts that said "Diced Tomatoes in Sauce"
1 small box of Tomato bisque starter Soup. (found in the broth isle
2 cans of chicken broth (or use alternative for vegan/vegetarians
1 chopped onion (I used white onions)
2 bags of your favorite froze vegetables (I used a stir fry mix with green beans, sugar snap peas, water chestnuts, yellow squash, and broccoli
1 tsb Extra virgin olive oil

I cooked the chopped onions a little bit in the EVOO and added basil, pepper, salt, and garlic seasoning for taste. I add the diced tomatoes and the tomato bisque starter and let those all cook on medium high heat to a boil. I turn up on high and add the chicken broth and the vegetable and cook to a good boil and quickly reduce to heat to simmer (or low) and cover and just let it cook for about an hour just to let all of the flavors blend into the vegetables. This entire LARGE pot made was about 1000 calories for the entire thing. So, split it up to individual servings, it could be anywhere from 100 to 200 calories!!

Add Chicken or Beans for protein if desired.  I think this would be a PERFECT starter to ANY dish!!
