Expert Tips

If you can't find the canned diced tomatoes with roasted garlic, use two 14.5-ounce cans of plain diced tomatoes and add 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder.

Select lean stew meat, and trim any extra fat before adding it to the soup.

Top this soup with a handful of herb-flavored croutons and a little shredded Parmesan cheese.
