Tomato Soup Like Campbells!
0

8 posts in this topic

Totally did it, based on some recipes from the internet.

 

Mix one can of tomato paste with 4 cans of water until smooth (this makes about 4 cups).  Set aside.

Melt 2 T of butter over low heat, add 2 T of cornstarch and mix well to make a roux.

Add the tomato stuff to the roux, turn up the heat and stir until it boils and thickens.  It might look horrible until the end, like it has a nasty rash, but eventually it will turn out smooth and pretty.

Add 1 c milk, 1/4 c sugar (or to taste, but this seems to get that Campbell's level of sweetness), and 1 t salt.  Stir to dissolve the sugar.

 

The thickness is just right.  Now if only I had saltines...

We  have  made  this  recipe  off  the  net for  several  years.. while  it is good I'm lazy in my old  age &  we  really  like amy's  tomato  bisque  with  grilled  cheese  sammies....

By  the  way  if  you  want  a  cracker  that  is  most like  a  saltine  try galbusa  ..... very popular  & good..... they  have been  available  for  several years...

Is there a gluten-free condensed tomato soup like Campbell's? I used to use it in a couple of recipes and would love to have a condensed version.

Not that I'm aware of. Pacific makes a delicious tomato soup in a big carton but it's not condensed.

The condensed soup has half the liquid of the finished product, so I would bet if you made this recipe with two cans of water instead of 4 cans it would be thick like the condensed soup.

    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.
