Because summer is such a busy time, I decided to make most of the tomatoes into juice. Now during the winter when I am not as busy, I have time to use the juice to make tomato soup or sauce for spaghetti. And . . . there is always plenty to enjoy as a beverage.

This comfort soup is easy to make, very nutritious and as well delicious!

1 large onion, chopped
3 – 4 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup chopped celery
4 cups water
10 cups tomato juice
3 tablespoons “It’s Just Like Sugar” (or 10 drops of stevia)
1 1/2 tablespoons Himalayan salt
3 cups bone broth
2 tablespoons parsley flakes
1/2 cups water
1/4 cup cornstarch

Cook the onion, garlic, and celery in 4 cups water. Add the tomato juice, sugar substitute, salt, bone broth and parsley. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Mix cornstarch and half cup water and stir it into the pot of soup, cooking until it is thickened. Adjust salt & pepper to taste.

The tomatoes, bone broth, onion, garlic and parsley are all very nutritious and provide health for our whole body, helping prevent colds, viruses, flu and many diseases.
I have to say that our household has not had a cold or the flu for quite a few years now so we will continue to eat our own garden grown vegetables & fruits; eat fermented foods, include nutrient packed seeds in our meal plan and take good supplements!
