    Default Imagining a Receipe

    As a child it was a bit of a special treat to have a tin of Heinz tomato
    soup before going to bed in the evening. Somehow now much older I have an
    emotional attachment to it and quite often have a cup at night time.

    I've not much idea what's really in it, its listed on the tin as:

    Tomatoes 84%, vegetable oil, sugar, modified cornflour, salt, dried skimmed
    milk, milk proteins, cream, spice extracts, herb extracts, citric acid.

    I'm not a big fan of animal products and have no idea how scary *modified*
    cornflour is, or what kind of oil, etc., etc.

    I know this is not going to be easy, but I am wondering if anyone 'familiar'
    with this product and who is a bit sophisticated food wise, might be able to
    *imagine* a recipe roughly similar in taste a novice like myself might
    manage to make? I do have a blender.

    Especially one that would be more *healthy*, and also might 'approximate
    that 'creamy type' tomato taste? Thanks for any advice.

    I wouldn’t begin to guess. I have made various recipes of tomato soup
    which were all good, but nothing approximating canned tomato soup. Are you
    in the UK or AU? We generally don’t see Heinz soups in the US. Our most
    common brand is Campbell’s and there are many store brands that are
    similar.

    As far as modified cornflour (we call it cornstarch), it is made from corn
    and there’s nothing dangerous about it. Vegetable oil may be made from a
    variety of different vegetables, but it is definitely not an animal
    product. Based on the list of ingredients, there appears to be no animal
    products in the Heinz product.

    Having said all that, I rather like canned tomato soup, especially as a
    snack. What we get here is generally “condensed” which means you add a can
    of water or milk (if you want cream of tomato soup). I prefer mixing it
    with milk. I also prefer drinking it out of a cup. I consider it a
    “comfort food”.

    Anyone can make the following soup. I have substituted olive oil for
    butter, canned for fresh tomatoes, left out the rice and it's still always
    good.

    You will need about a chilo of ripe tomatoes. You can put them into boiling
    water and then easily peel them, but at this time of year a lot of tomatoes
    have scars, bruises and other imperfections which make that not such a good
    idea, so I don't. I remove anything I don't want to eat, and then dice them.
    If you peel them, dice them when they are peeled.
    Cook about 1/2 cup of plain white rice with more water than you usually use-
    this so it won't become a rice brick. Drain and rinse it if necessary to
    keep it from clumping.
    Take six tablespoons of butter and melt it in a deep pot and then add about
    a cup of chopped onion and a good-sized pinch of salt. Cook this slowly,
    being careful not to brown it, until the onion is softened and cooked. This
    is important, because tomatoes don't allow the onions to cook further once
    they are added. When the onions are cooked, if you know your tomatoes are
    not very sweet, you can add a glug of sherry or Marsala and let it cook off.
    Stir in a heaping tablespoon of flour. Then add the diced tomatoes and about
    two teaspoons of salt. Cook this slowly, stirring it once in a while to make
    sure all the tomato pieces are getting cooked, until the tomatoes are
    softened, about 10 minutes or so. Use a stick blender to blend it smooth in
    the pan. If you don't have one, you can use a food mill, but you will lose
    the seeds and perhaps a little of the flavor. Return the pot to low heat.
    Slowly, one tablespoon at a time to begin with, stir in two cups of milk.
    Stir it up, and a pinch at a time, correct the salt to your taste. Grind in
    some pepper, too. Bring to a simmer and turn off the heat.
    To serve it, put some rice in a soup bowl and ladle the tomato cream over
    it.
    Putting the rice into the soup means you have to eat it all at once or the
    rice became a gluey slush. Nicely al dente rice is much better.
    You can freeze this in portions or in whole, but freeze the rice separately
    in similar quantities.

    You can come darn close to the same product, probably even better and
    it'll cost less, with a can of tomato paste diluted to your taste, a
    little cornstarch for thickener, a bit of cream or milk if you desire
    (I'd leave it out), and a little s n' p, add whatever herbs/spices
    suits... I would omit the oil altogether or maybe a small dot of
    butter at serving. If you're lazy or in a hurry simply dilute a small
    tin of tomato sauce, it's already seasoned. All the tomato products
    are made from tomato paste (tomato concentrate). Tinned soups are
    only a convenience... they're actually not very good, especially the
    condensed ones, but they're what folks get used to. I don't find it
    any more difficult to open a tin of tomato paste, add water and
    thicken... I make tomato egg drop this way very often, had it
    yesterday... I detest "cream-of" tomato soup, I find it very off
    putting, reminds me of well, canned tomato soup... I like tomato soup
    to taste of tomatoes, not tainted breast milk about to turn into
    cheeze curds like infant throw up. I don't like any "cream-of" soups,
    not even home made.

    IT'S A BEDTIME SNACK, HE DOESN'T WANT TO SPEND HOURS COOKING LIKE IT'S
    A HOLIDAY DINNER, SHOULD TAKE NO MORE THAN FIVE MINUTES, JUST OPEN A

    Maybe he could make it ahead of time, divide it up into individual portions
    and can or freeze those portions.

    now who's the ignoramus.

    OK. I give up, what's (or how much) is a chilo?

    <snip>

    As for the OP's question... there is a nice step-by-step tomato soup
    recipe here (altho' it doesn't mention anything about 'cream')

    I assumed kilo (kilogram)? It's how 'chilo' would be pronounced in Italian.

    I make tomato soup out of canned tomato paste.
    Works for me. :-) Dilute it to the desired texture and add some heavy
    cream. Salt and pepper to taste.
