If you’re not sure what to do with green tomatoes, make this healthy and satisfying green tomato soup. While it can be made with all green tomatoes, we prefer using a combination of both red and green ones since doing so results in a lovely color! Even better than the beautiful color, the tang of the green tomatoes with the sweetness of the reds makes for a wonderful flavor combination that is sure to please your palate.

To make 12 servings of green tomato soup, melt Cabot Salted Butter over medium heat in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan or Dutch oven. Add onion, celery, green bell pepper, hot pepper and garlic and cook, stirring, for about 5 to 7 minutes.


Next, stir in the red and green tomatoes, bring to a simmer and let cook for about 10 minutes. Add the chicken or vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let the soup simmer until tomatoes are very tender, approximately 10 to 15 minutes.


Stir in dill and thyme and let soup cool slightly. When soup has cooled enough to handle, puree coarsely in a blender or food processor, working in batches if necessary. Return soup to pot.


Add 1 cup of Cabot Plain Greek Yogurt (or Cabot 2% Plain Greek Yogurt), stirring until blended into soup. Rewarm soup over low heat, adding grated Cabot Lite50 Sharp Cheddar cheese until well blended.


Serve garnished with dollops of remaining yogurt, diced tomatoes and fresh basil.
