You could use tomato paste and dilute it with water to the consistency you need. You might want to add some onion and/or garlic powder which I think is in the condensed soups.

My husband's favorite chili recipe calls for a can of condensed tomato soup. What is the closest gluten-free alternative?

1 lb. home canned or tin canned whole tomatoes

2 cups milk (optional)

2 Tbls butter or margarine (dairy up to you)

1/8 tsp gluten-free baking soda

salt and pepper to taste

You can add a pinch or two of celery salt ... stick in a blender and ....

Oh... and it's also a nice soup

You can make an authetic Campbells by obtaining some GM tomatoes, soy and corn syrup

Campbells received 13 permits from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to field test genetically engineered tomatoes

but personally I prefer not :D

A really cheap trick I use is I have a little camera on my palm pilot and take pics of the labels on stuff (you can just note em down) and then you can recreate the same thing at home....

You once posted the ingredients list from a spaghetti sauce can (or something similar). My question is: Do the ingredients lists in Europe always list the percentage composition? Labels in the US don't, which is why I ask. Just curious :D !

No but you can often work them out....

For instance tomato soup has X g. of fat and the fat is pretty much only going to come from butter/margerine or oil...

The protein g you can assign to the milk....

Just use 3kCal/g for protein and carbohydrates and 9 for fats...

1/8 tsp gluten-free baking soda ??? just a guess...

if you are in any doubt you can just google a recipe and then this gives you a great guide... to amounts and then experiment with undisclosed herbs or spices...

so you can get the basic ingredients from the can and then google and when you find a similar recipee...(using the same basic ingredients) you can use those as the proportions...

edit

Sorry forgot to mention... I just posted the basic neapolitan and bolgnese sauce recipes... since this is what Ragu are copying anyway.... but lets face it we have to read every darned tin anyway....and even when we do we still face risks so I always read the label with an eye to "hmm.. can i make this myself"..

Amy's also make a tomato soup, but it is not condensed. I recently tried the Pacific Foods? tomato soup and really liked it. Again it is not condensed.

Yeah . . . having grown up in a home where my mother cooked all the time, it often shocks me how intimidated some people are by the idea of cooking. I always say that Campbell's has done one of the best con jobs ever by convincing people that "real soup" actually comes from a can! I mostly stopped cooking while pregnant with my twins (it's one of them that has celiac, so gluten-free wasn't an issue at the time) and pretty soon ALL fast food tasted exactly the same - tacos tasted like hamburgers, etc. I got to a point where I just ate because I needed to . . . none of it tasted good. After they were born and I started cooking again, I was AMAZED at how GOOD everything tasted - and how distinct the flavors were. I suppose it was the lack of MSG. But I've decided that the next time I get pregnant I'm going to pre-make and freeze an awful lot of food so that we can eat real food the whole time . . . because I don't think I coud eat fast food like that again!

I like Imagine Foods tomato soup in the aseptic package. It isn't condensed, but it's too strong to eat without diluting, so it might work.

I have a recipe for condensed tomato soup...this recipe makes about 2 cans...it is thick just like campbells condensed tomato soup.

I use it in recipes alot....

Condensed Tomato Soup

2 cups Water

4T Corn Starch

3T Butter

2 small cans tomato Paste gluten-free

Season with salt and pepper

In a small saucepan, whisk water and cornstarch till well blended

Heat to a boil till thickened...stirring with a whisk constantly

Stir in Butter and Tomato Paste and blend with whisk well

It should come out nice and thick to use in recipes that call for condensed tomato soup

I make it up the day before if I know that I am making something that requires Condensed Tomato Soup

Enjoy!

Heinz tomato soup tastes just like Campbell's but is made with rice flour instead of wheat flour. I can't remember if it's condensed, but it's good!

Although I grew up on canned chili, for at least 15 years now I've only made homemade chili. I use tomato sauce (I always thought it was basically thinner tomato puree).

Sometimes to give it a little more "texture", I'll use canned diced tomatos, and use my immersion blender to blend them just this side of tomato sauce.

best regards, lm

BTW, this thread is 3 years old.

Even though it is 3 years old I'm glad to have found it, I got some good information from it. And copied the tomato soup recipe.

This is great, thanks! I just wanted to point out that the stuff in the red and white can contains more than 2 tablespoons (30g) of sugar (HFCS)! So, if you want the recipe to taste "like it used to", that's probably the missing ingredient.

I just use an 8-oz can of tomato sauce and about a quarter cup of cream, sour cream, or half-and-half. Depending on the recipe, I throw in some garlic powder or dill or parsley or whatever. If it needs thickening, I add some cornstarch or gluten-free flour somewhere else in the recipe--but it usually doesn't seem to need thickening, which is surprising, because it does start out thinner than condensed tomato soup.

This is easy.

1 T. butter

1 1/2 T. [that's 4 1/2 tsp.] cornstarch

1 c. plus 2 T. milk

2 T. tomato sauce.

melt the butter over medium heat. When it begins to foam, add cornstarch and blend well to form a thin paste. Let cook 30-60 seconds (this should be rather foamy). Drizzle in the milk while whisking. Heat until thickened [do NOT let this boil], stirring frequently. Remove from heat and stir in tomato sauce. This replaces 1 can of tomato soup, though you'll need to add extra salt to your recipe to make up for this not having any.

    • You are normal!  All the things you are going through are normal for someone with celiac disease....probably with any life changing illness.  What you need is patience.  Most here take a year to heal or longer due to setbacks on the diet or healing from systemic damage.  The nervous system seems to take the longest.  Ask your doctor to check you for any deficiencies.  No sense guessing what you might need.  It is a common and recommended practice to check for vitamin and mineral deficiencies.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-common-nutrient-deficiencies-might-an-adult-experience-prior-to-diagnosis/ Once healed, you might not need any supplements, if you eat a wide and varied healthy diet.  
    • Yes!  Ask for the IgA deficiency test!  Why?  Well, your doctor did not even follow protocol.  In order to validate the IgA celiac tests, he should have determined if you are IgA deficient or not. http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf  I have never tested positive on the IgG tests and only had one positive on the IgA DGP test, but I was not IgA deficient, so my GI knew that my test was valid and I needed an endoscopy to confirm my diagnosis.  You do not know if any of your tests are valid.  You need the IgA test.  It is a control test only in the case of diagnosing celiac disease.  But....some celiacs are low in IgA and that seems to happen more often in celiacs than the general population.   https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/07/dunkirk-is-a-stunningly-spare-survival-film/534252/
    • Almost EVERY single celiac expert in the world and/or groups like the U.K./U.S. Gastroenterologist Associations recommend obtaining biopsies for diagnosing celiac disease.  There are some exceptions.  If you are too ill to even risk an endoscopy, your celiac panel is extremely high on several of the celiac tests (this is still debatable), you have long wait times in getting the endoscopy (government health wait times) or you can not afford to get one are all acceptable.   You know your situation and will have to determine what is best based on your doctor's input.   The blood tests are not 100% accurate.  Heck, I tested positive only to a really odd one (the DGP IGA).  I had no noticeable symptoms.  I chose the endoscopy.  I never wanted to doubt my diagnosis as my hubby went Gluten Free some 16 years ago based on the poor advice of two medical doctors.  He got well, but does he really have celiac disease?  He would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical, yes, medical.   I hope this helps.  Best to research like you are doing so that you feel comfortable and committed.  
    • No, I didn't get a endoscopy or even  a blood test. I got digestive as well as other problems though on a number of occasions after being gluten free and accidentally eating something with gluten.  My symptoms were severe and dramatic so it was obvious to me that I had celaic disease.  I would ask the doctor what the endoscopy test is for and if there is any reason to take it besides confirming the blood tests.  From what I have read a false positive result on a blood test is unlikely but I don't know for sure. 
    • Thankyou for your advice i am getting so confused as some people are saying you dont need the biopsy and others are saying you do need it as it comes with other tests connected to thyroid, iron etc? just want to start being gluten free asap! did you go for the endoscopy?
