Tomato soup is an all-time classic that goes perfectly with a grilled cheese sandwich. Nourishing, nutritious, filling, but very low in calories, tomato soup is simply awesome! Tomatoes are packed with lycopene, a nutrient known for its’ antioxidant and cancer-fighting properties. As super-foods go, this tomato soup is hard to beat.
