I love it when a good kitchen hack works out. This homemade condensed tomato soup worked perfectly for me and I will be using it from now on!
A few weeks ago I was taking a meal to my friend who just had a baby. I decided on sloppy joe’s because they’re easy, and make great leftovers. HOWEVER, I no longer keep condensed tomato soup in my house, and the recipe called for “1/2 can tomato soup.”
The recipe I was making is the one I grew up with and have made for years. It’s delicious. I will post it soon. Since I couldn’t waver from it, I decided to make my own dang soup and it worked wonderfully!
This isn’t the only recipe in my box calling for tomato soup, so now I have a healthy and fast alternative!
Note: if I were to make actual soup out of this, I would add a bunch of spices, this is purely to fill a void in my life for a few recipes I have that call for condensed soup!
- 1 can tomato paste
- 1 T organic cane sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 T arrowroot powder or cornstarch
- Add all ingredients to a small bowl.
- Whisk to combine.
- Use in place of condensed tomato soup in recipes (not as actual soup).
- Store remaining "soup" in the fridge.
- Makes the equivalent of one can of tomato soup.
