Hearty Red Soup

 

This tasty soup is full of lycopene, a phytonutrient found in tomatoes. Heating tomatoes makes this phytonutrient more easier for the body to use. Research shows that it protects us against different types of cancer. The soup is also a good source of beta carotene, another phytonutrient which provides us with vitamin A.
