Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup

Tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich are lunch time favorites among lots of people! I gave it a healthier kick by making a few changes. I substituted 2% milk for the cream in our favorite tomato soup recipe, used a 100% whole grain bread and 2% cheese for the grilled cheese. I also added some fresh veggies and some ranch dip.  The dip is made using greek yogurt and reduced fat sour cream, an idea from Kris at Eclipsed.

Here's our super simple tomato soup recipe:

1 can Campbell's tomato soup
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 cup 2% milk

Combine all ingredients and cook over medium heat until heated through. Enjoy!

This lunch - 1 cup soup, 1/2 grilled cheese sandwich, and some fresh veggies with dip - comes in at 350 calories.

Kid Rating: 4 Thumbs Up -- Considering I have one who hates cheese (unless it's on pizza) and one who hates soup, I guess this is pretty good.
