gluten-free Tomato Soup...
0

14 posts in this topic

Does anyone know of a good gluten-free tomato soup? I've found a couple of soups at the store that are gluten-free but am apprehensive to buy. I'm getting tired of buying expensive gluten-free items, trying them, and finding that they really suck. I bought Health Valley Tomato soup but it tasted like watered down marinara sauce. So if anybody knows of a tasty tomato soup or even something like spaghettios I'd be REALLY grateful...Thanks lots.

My son & I both eat Amy's tomato soup. I think there is a tomato bisque and a cream of tomato and a regular tomato. They are yummy!

What I'd do is just buy ordinary tomato paste, and make my own soup. Then I can add whatever I want, and it'll be safe, delicious, and cheaper than pre-made stuff.

I like the Images organic soups that come premade in a boxed carton. The tomato is decent. I wasn't crazy about it at first because i was comparing it to Campbells, but it's actually not bad. It's pretty healthy too!

I buy the Amy's lowfat tomato bisque - it is so yummy! And I don't even usually like tomato soup b/c like you said, it can taste like spaghetti sauce - yuck!

I like the Imagine Foods tomato soup too. It's dairy-free too, which is good for us. I think it's a little too rich, so I add some water. My daughter likes to add some milk.

How would you do this? Do you just add water to the paste, if so how much?

Doesn't Heinz make a soup in UK that's distributed in USA which is gluten-free? Or is this just a rumour?

Suzie,

Please let me make a suggestion. Broaden your information base a little. There are many cooking websites available to anyone and everyone. One of my favs is allrecipes.com. Took me about 5 seconds to go from your question to this:

http://allrecipes.com/Search/Recipes.aspx?...erm=tomato+soup

Yes, that's right, 240 recipes for tomato soup! Any kind you like. The recipes are posted there by regular people just like you and I, so you have to keep that in mind. But they have a rating system whereby people can post comments about their opinions of the recipes. I usually look at several dozen recipes and use them as a guide to make my own.

There's also:

http://www.epicurious.com/

http://www.foodnetwork.com/

Best regards, lm

p.s., BTW, it goes without saying (but I guess to CMA just in case anyone comments on it) substitute any gluten ingredients with gluten-free ingredients!

Thanks lm. That's what I do when I'm stuck for a recipe. Google is a good friend.

Anyway, though it's been awhile since I've eaten tomato soup, I think I recall carrots being important to the flavor. I usually just dive in and attempt stuff, so here's what I'd do if I was going to make tomato soup:

Put some carrots, and a bit of fresh celery, onion, and garlic in a blender. Whip into a fine puree, adding water as needed. Pour that into a pot along with one can of tomato paste, and add enough water to make it on the thin side for tomato soup. Add some spices like oregano, basil, and a little salt. Mix in some arrowroot, which will thicken it up to the desired consistency. Heat to a slow simmer, stirring constantly while the arrowroot does it's job. Taste it and see if we got it right :lol:

The reason to thin it out only to thicken it up again is so it's not too tomatoey/acidic. The carrots and celery will help there too though.

Thanks for the links and the recipes lm :o)

Google is definitely my friend and I often get recipes from places like allrecipes.com- they have lots and lots of good ones, don't they?

I was just curious about how someone would go about making a tomato soup from a tin of paste. Most tomato soup recipes that I'm familiar with use fresh tomoatoes (which we don't always have on hand) or condensed tomato soup (and I'm trying to find a cheaper alternative to the gluten-free condensed soups). I did a little searching before writing my post the other day and wasn't able to find a recipe using tin tomato paste (except a couple that also required fresh tomoatoes).

I have found some recipes which use tomoato juice- that would probably be less expensive than buying the commercially prepared gluten-free soups, and I could keep some tin juice on hand in our cupboard.

Yes, I've ordered it on-line from a gluten free grocery (the name escapes me, but it's out there). The Heniz is almost exactly like the Campbells, yummmmmy.

Sorry Suzie, I misinterpeted your post. Boy, that's so easy to do (for me anyways).

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I received the amended records in the mail. I don' think the doctor even read my email with the amendment request since she only corrected one statement I never said...the statement I gave as example while briefly talking to her on the phone the other day. So, I called the office to inquire why the other statements I never said were not corrected. Fortunately, the other staff member answered the phone. I'm surprised she told me this, but it was the best therapy for me so maybe she was meant to say it! She told me she knows what I mean about that one worker because she has to deal with it, too! She said a new office manager starts next week and she gave me her direct emal address to complain about that worker. 
    • Received Results. Looks like not Celiac?
      You've all been so helpful in guiding me what to do.  I did just receive my blood work and have an appt. with my doctor next week.  I wanted her to check it because I have lived a life of being extremely exhausted, migraines/headaches, and anxiety.  My thyroid is balanced and I am healthy (other blood results that were off were low platelet, low protein, high A/G ratio).  I am not good at reading results, but it appears negative to celiac, maybe next steps are trying a gluten-free diet for sensitivity?

    • healthy bread recipe?
      Hello, This is my first post. My 12yr old daughter was diagnosed with ?celiac disease. Her blood test was positive, genetic screen positive and her biopsy abnormal but they are not ready to say she is celiac because her villi are damaged but not gone. We are to adhere to a strict gluten-free diet for 6 months. So far (1 month) we have adjusted well. I am learning to bake again using many many many different flours lol. However I cannot find a good sandwich bread. There are good tasting breads with little or no fiber or heavy dense breads that don't make good sandwiches or toast. She has become very constipated on this gluten-free diet because of the low fiber content of the cereal,rice and breads. We were told no oats for the first year? and no or little dairy for the first month. She has been on a low histamine diet for 4 months now as well. My question is what is the best way to make gluten free bread, oven or bread maker? Does anyone have a good healthy recipe for sandwich bread that a kid would like? We normally eat a soft 5 grain bread before gluten-free. Thank you!
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Thanks so much, gluten-free,  in my hypchondriacal panic I saw that website!  It is good to have an endorsement from a celiac.   I remember seeing quite a few reassuring stories in it along the lines that you describe. Funny isn't as because I now feel far less inclined to eat large amounts of carbohydrate now I have cut back a bit.   It seems the more sugar I ate, the more I wanted to eat.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
