Copycat Campbell's Tomato Soup #UltimateRecipeChallenge

Yum
I love tomatoes.  They are probably my favorite fruit/vegetables.  I just learned that I have an acidic stomach and tomatoes are on the no-no list.  It breaks my heart.


This month's Ultimate Recipe Challenge hosted by Kim Six Fix, was a bit bittersweet, knowing that I couldn't try any of the recipes, but I still wanted to be a part.  You will see my Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce recipe on the links below, along with lots of other mouthwatering recipes.

Just when I was becoming really depressed about the whole thing, I discovered tomato powder. Tomato powder is dehydrated tomatoes that are pulverized into powder and then used in making wonderful things like this Copycat Campbell's Tomato Soup.


You can reconstitute the tomatoes to make tomato paste and tomato sauce.  There are instructions on nearly every package of tomato powder on the market.  I found this tomato soup recipe and modified it to make it gluten, dairy and sugar free.  I hope you give it a try.

              Tomato Soup (a bit like Campbell's, but more healthy!)
  • 2/3 c almond milk
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup tomato powder
  • 1 packets stevia (or more to taste) (for those of you who can, use brown sugar)
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  •  Add water to a large pot and eat over high heat until almost boiling.  Add tomato powder and whisk thoroughly.  Turn heat down,  Add stevia and salt, mix well.  Add milk and heat to desired temperature.  Add more stevia to taste, if needed.  Garnish with coconut milk yogurt.

For someone who gets to eat Campbell's tomato soup a lot, this might seem a far cry from that beloved soup, but for those of us who cannot have tomatoes, this is a godsend!  Tomato powder has a long shelf life and can be used to make sauces, Bloody Marys and other tomato based goodies.

Join my friends as they share all of their wonderful tomato recipes!

    1. You might check with your doc about tomato powder. My doc said this was a good product as it removes the acidity.

    1. If you have no sugar restrictions, use brown sugar. Start with 1 tablespoon and sweeten from there. Delish.

  5. What an interesting idea! I love tomato bisque and I bet this soup would taste creamy with the almond milk!

  6. I wonder if this recipe would work without the stevia or any sweetener at all? I am not a fan of stevia myself.

    1. The tomato powder is a bit bitter. You might be able to use real cream and that might take the edge off. The best result is brown sugar. For this recipe it would take 1 T to balance the bitterness.
