GF Condensed Cream of Tomato Soup
1 cup Gluten-Free Magic Mix
1/4 tsp. Onion Powder
3/4 cup Tomato Juice (see below)
- Add Magic Mix, onion powder and tomato juice to a saucepan. Mix well.
- Turn heat to medium and stir constantly until the mixture thickens (this does not take very long).
Use one recipe of this for each can of Condensed Tomato Soup called for in your recipe.
Comparison to the “real” thing:
The texture and consistency of the Campbell’s is quite a bit thinner than what I came up with. The Campbell’s version is more like a thick Tomato Sauce. I will tinker around and see if I can come up with something more like the Campbell’s Condensed Tomato Soup (eventually, I am a bit backlogged at the moment :-D ). Any which way, I have been using the GF Condensed Cream of Tomato Soup in all my recipes that call for Condensed Tomato Soup and we have liked it all the same, even if it does lend a creamier consistency to the finished product. Besides, it’s been 5 years… I have essentially wiped out any real memories of casseroles in my former gluten-life! ;-)
Okay, I couldn’t stop myself. Monopotassium Phosphate (this is only a clip from Wikipedia, click on the link for further info):
I love how they sandwiched “food additive” in between “fertilizer” and “fungicide.” Couldn’t they have at least put “food additive” first??

Since I do not drink tomato juice and I do not use condensed tomato soup all that often, I freeze the left over juice in ice cube trays to use as needed. :-)
