gluten-free Tomato Soup...

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).

    • Thank you for posting this I've never been to South America, it's the only continent, bar the poles, I've yet to visit. It's really nice to read that my gluten sensitivity hasn't ruled it out. Maybe I'll get to the land of Luis Suarez yet!
    • I know this post is a year ago... however it is still on the first page of the travel section!  I am from Uruguay, (South America) and I can answer this question for people that may look at it in the future. As a South American -  I can say that the cuisine varies greatly.  In cities, you shouldn't have any more than the normal amount of difficulty finding food.  For example, in Montevideo, the city I am from, you'll have no problem finding dedicated entire Celiac stores.  Meat is a large part of restaurant menus, so parilladas (similar in theory to steakhouses, would be very easy to navigate).  Uruguayans do eat a lot of pastries, and just like in the states... Most mainstream bakeries are not gluten free, but like I mentioned there are places that specialize.  In Uruguay, there is knowledge of Celiac and a large health awareness.  Some of the foods can be costly, cost of living in general is not low. In large swaths of South America, the foods you mentioned - Potatoes, rice, meat, etc are abundant, as are fresh fruits and veggies.  Avoiding corn does make it tricky.  Peru can be a great place for non-gluten eaters. Peru uses very little gluten (they are the original quinoa eaters) but there is a lot of corn in the diet (and since you are corn sensitive, that would be a food you would need to navigate). Latin America spread over two continents! In this area you will find a great variety in cultures, cuisines, and knowledge of celiac.  There is no reason why If you want to experience Latin America, that you have to rule out an entire region of the world because of Celiac.  Navigating it will be different, but it is doable!
    • Recently diagnosed last week does the pain ever get better??
    • George, i am sorry that you are not feeling well!  ☹️  I am not a doctor, but just trying out drugs to stop your symptoms just seems like a band aid  approach.  It sounds like he suspects IBS which is really, in my opinion, "I be stumped".  Has inflammatory bowel disorder (IBD) (more lovely autoimmune disorders) been ruled out?  This includes both Crohn's and Colitis.  My niece was diagnosed with Crohn's finally with a pill camera after all other tests were given.  The damage was not within reach of any scope.  I am just throwing out suggestions.  Hopefully, you and your doctor will figure it out soon!  
    • Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that happens to have a known trigger -- gluten.  Flare-ups develop  (antibodies) causing damage. Not just in the small intestine, but systemically.  One gluten exposure can cause antibodies to increase for days or months!   Antibodies are being measured during the celiac blood tests.   If there is no gluten exposure, there will be no antibodies.  These antibodies can come down in some people in as little as two weeks.  Recommendations require gluten 2 to 4 weeks daily for the biopsies taken via endoscopy in order to be sure to catch damage, but 8 to 12 weeks for the blood tests.   The endoscopy is considered the "gold standard" in helping to diagnose celiac disease, but there are other things that can damage the small intestine.  So, the blood test helps solidify the diagnosis.   So, if you want a good result on your endoscopy, you need to be eating gluten daily for two week prior at a minimum.  I know it is tough and you are feeling sick.  Wish there was a better way to catch active celiac disease.
