MmmmMmmm Good! Just Like Campbell's Tomato Soup!

I realize that it's been a long time since my last post.  Not intentionally on hiatus, just got busy I guess....

There is so much more available than there ever was before for us gluten-free beauties, isn't there!?! "Gluten Free" is something we see a lot more of - from restaurants to grocery stores and even available at Costco.  It's amazing!

Sometimes, its the simple things that we miss - like a hot bowl of cream of tomato soup on a cold, damp winter day.  We had a lot of days like that this winter.  Now, thanks to this marvelous new invention called the Internet (who knew) I stumbled upon a few recipes for how to make cream of tomato soup gluten free with only four simple ingredients.  I tried a few - and here's the winning combo!

1 5oz tin of tomato paste
3 cups of milk (I use 1%)
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp salt

Wisk until smooth, heat, enjoy!

It's pretty much bang-on, folks.  Maybe a little thinner than the original (no glutinous thickeners added) but the taste is exactly the same.

For me - Glutino's table crackers are an excellent in-soup substitute for the saltine crackers I grew up with.
