This time of year here, in the Pacific Northwest, it gets downright cold once the sun starts to go down! Though living “so” far north means that it stays light pretty late, and in the summer it is still light outside until around 9 PM! We love to eat soup and sandwiches on cold afternoons and evenings. Here is one of our favorite, VERY fast soups!
Tomato Soup – Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Delicious!
1 can tomato sauce
1 can filtered water
salt free seasoning
1 – 2 tablespoons evaporated cane juice or honey
Mix the tomato sauce and water in a pan. Lightly sprinkle basil over soup in pot. Do the same, only lighter still, with the salt free seasoning. Add evaporated cane juice and stir well.
Heat on medium to low setting. Continue stirring frequently while soup heat. While the soup is heating, make your sandwich &/or salad. Eat!
I have tried using milk, but the acid in the tomato causes the milk to curdle. Not a very pretty site in your bowl. I thought of making a roux, but that is more work than this super simple, super easy soup. I may try that… later! We like this FAR better than the store-bought stuff.
Hm, next time I may try taking a picture to post here!
