I'll admit it, I just love Campbell's tomato soup, it's the only kind I like. But I never buy it anymore because I'm sure it's all garbage. Does anyone out there have a recipe for a homemade tomato soup that tastes like it? Is this even possible? It has to be entirely smooth for my palate, I'm a major texture freak and pieces of tomato would not work for me. Thanks in advance for any recipes or ideas!

Why don't you make it and then stick it in the blender and then a sieve?

This soup is very good

You might like this smooth soup I had the other day - the brand was Amy's Kitchen. It was very good.
I know, not helpful for homemade creamy tomato soup

check other canned brands. I found a totally random one with no MSG or any HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) not too long ago....it is too buried in my pantry right now but it was a little can and just some random brand I'd never seen before. Haven't made it yet to check the taste as compared to Campbells.

lovin DH since 1/04, SAHM to 3 boys 10/04, 11/08, 11/10 one girlie (1/07), and one 13 wk (10/13) just your average :ha ng multigenerational living family!!

I don't have an exact cambell's recipe, but I make a smooth tomato soup. Tomato puree, water, a little sugar, spices. My MIL adds in tomato juice also.

Thanks for the ideas, everyone. Abimommy and RachelEve14, your recipes look like a good place to start! I'm sure it will take a lot of experimenting to get the Campbell's taste down. But it's good to know about my healthy canned options as well, so thank you Sol_y_Paz.

This is the recipe I use for tomato soup. I make it with tomato paste, so it's completely smooth, no chunks whatsoever.

* 4 tablespoons butter
* 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
* 1 can tomato paste mixed with 4 cans of water
* 1 cup milk
* 1/4 cup sugar (or to taste)
* 1/4 teaspoon salt


Directions

1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add flour; stir to form a smooth paste. Gradually add tomato juice and milk, stirring constantly; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add sugar and salt.

My hubby used to be a total Campbell tomato soup fan. Not anymore after tasting this recipe, and it's much cheaper. This recipe makes ~5 cups of soups, much more than a can of Campbell's. Plus this soup is incredibly tasty with grilled cheese sandwiches.
