I grew up on Campbell's Cream of Tomato Soup. I have many feel-good memories of coming home for lunch to a bowl of hot tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. I was a child of the 60's after all. As a young mom however, I became more concerned about nutrition and minimizing additives in our diet, so many comfort foods took a back seat. Thanks to THRIVE TOMATO POWDER, comfort food #1 is back on my table with No additives!

  1. Prepare milk using milk powder and water. Set aside.
  2. In medium sauce pan, prepare a roux with butter and flour by melting butter and adding flour - stirring to incorporate, over medium to low heat.
  3. Slowly add prepared milk, whisking while adding to prevent clumping.
  4. Stir over low heat while thickening. Add salt and pepper.
  5. Add Tomato Powder and whisk to blend. I find it easier to remove 1/2 cup white sauce into a bowl. Stir in tomato powder till smooth, then pour back into soup.
  6. Start off with 1/4 cup Tomato powder. If you want a richer tomato flavour, simply add another Tablespoon at a time.
  7. Heat through over medium to low stirring while it thickens. Serve hot.
  8. That's it! Serve with crackers or grilled cheese sandwiches. It really IS that easy.
  9. Feel free to experiment using your favourite alternatives if you are dairy free or gluten free. Have fun.
