CONDENSED CREAM OF TOMATO SOUP



CONDENSED CREAM OF TOMATO SOUP
    This is a handy soup for recipes instead of the commercial variety which is so high in sodium and usually contains MSG and other undesirable ingredients. The cream cheese is not apparent in the soup and the soup tastes remarkably similar to commercial varieties.  The calories in this soup are not high either!

14.5 oz can diced tomatoes, (411 g)
  Hunts (OR you can weigh fresh tomatoes and use those)
8 oz regular cream cheese (250 g)
1/4 cup heavy cream (60 mL)
1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
1/2 tsp No Salt® (2 mL)
1/4 tsp hot sauce (1 mL)
1/4 tsp paprika (1 mL)
1/4 tsp black pepper (1 mL)

In blender, combine diced tomatoes, cream cheese, heavy cream, salt, No Salt®, hot sauce, paprika and black pepper.  Blend until smooth.   If using a food processor, process the tomatoes first before adding the rest of the ingredients.

To serve:  Measure cup-for-cup with water and heat in the microwave oven until hot.  Grind some black pepper over top and enjoy!

Helpful Hint:  Use in recipes calling for condensed cream of tomato soup – usually 14 oz (400 g) in a can of commercial soup, so measure some out accordingly.

Yield:  3 cups concentrate
1/2 cup (125 mL) concentrate per serving (add 1/2 cup water = 1 cup soup)
