Julie’s Creamy Tomato Soup

–From Julia L.

This tomato soup is to die for! No one would ever guess it’s food storage! It’s even better left over, just be careful not to let it reach boiling or the cream will curdle. This is another favorite that I don’t store as part of my 19. Instead, I use it to rotate diced tomatoes.            –Mellyn 

Yield: 10-12 servings

  • 4 15-ounce cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 15-ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 2 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 7.5-ounce cans table cream
  • pepper, to taste
  1. Combine everything except the table cream. Let simmer for an hour OR put it in the crockpot for 4 or 5 hours. Sometimes we blend some or all of the tomatoes for a creamier texture.
  2. Add soda and cream just before serving.
  3. Top with black pepper, to taste.
  4. Try not to slurp, and try to resist the temptation to lick out the bowl!
