I learned how to make a tomato soup recipe years ago. It can be made with a water base or a creamed base. These recipes can be made with only tomatoes as the main ingredient or with many other vegetables added. Most of us think of this wonderful plant as a vegetable when it actually is considered a fruit.
It is the most common plant grown by home gardeners. Can you believe that this delicious edible fruit was once considered poisonous? I would not think of running out of these; fresh, canned as tomatoes, canned as juice, canned as paste and canned as sauce. But what about ketchup and all the sauces containing tomatoes; I could not be without those either. I even love tomato jam; see how important they are.
After I learned how to make a tomato soup recipe I realized how important this soup is along with all the other tomato products. This soup is the one of the most popular flavors sold by commercial soup makers like Campbell’s. In fact, by keeping cans of this soup in your kitchen pantry, many recipes can be quickly prepared like pasta, rice, meatloaf and many more; you can even make a tomato cake which is very good. Tomatoes have many health benefits; that is excluding the cake! They are filled with antioxidants protecting cells from some cancers and heart disease. They are also high in vitamins A and C; all these things make them so valuable to our diet.
