Cream of Tomato Soup

Submitted by: JDLANDER

Introduction

My family loves this soup. I use one big can of tomato and one big can of V8. I make it in big batches and freeze what I don't use. This recipe can be cut down easily. My kids love to dip their grilled cheese sandwiches in it. I just eat it with whole grain bread or crackers. My family loves this soup. I use one big can of tomato and one big can of V8.

Ingredients

    1/4 c. margarine or butter (I use smart balance)
    1/2 c. whole wheat flour
    7 c. (4 cans) evaporated milk, fat free
    12 c. (2 big cans) tomato or vegetable juice
    10 Tbsp. (1 small can) tomato paste
    salt and pepper to taste
    oregano and basil also to taste

Directions

Melt margarine or butter over medium heat in a stock pot (5 quarts or larger unless you are cutting the recipe down). Add flour and blend, stirring constantly, for 2 min.

Gradually (it needs to be gradual or it won't thicken properly) blend in the evaporated milk. Continue to cook over low to medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thickened.

Sir in the juice, tomato paste and the seasonings until smooth. Continue cooking over low heat, stirring frequently, for 5 min. Serve warm. You can top with cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, wheat germ or flax meal.

Serves approx. 18 1-cup servings.
