Copycat Campbell’s Tomato Soup

Copycat Campbell’s Tomato Soup is my simple version of the canned soup from childhood. I find this to be very close to the genuine article.

Copycat Campbell’s Tomato Soup

This month for #SoupSwappers the theme is all about Copycat soups.  I  decided for my offering I  would share a DIY version of canned Campbell’s tomato soup. And since at the time that I was working on it, I was also on Weight Watchers, I added the points it came up to.

I know some don’t want to use the Splenda, but you can always feel free to use the sweetener  of your choice.

When I was growing up, one of my favorite lunches was the cans of tomato soup along with a grilled cheese. I loved the soup with a heavy dash of black pepper and also some of the saltine crackers.

Sometimes if I didn’t have a sandwich, adding a little bit of cooked rice  was an option. And soups such as this one pack nicely into a thermos for a good brown bag lunch. And even if lunch wasn’t the thing for the day, this is also a soup I liked when I was home from school with a cold or the flu. I could sip at the soup and nibble on the crackers, and maybe that black pepper could wait for another day.

What was your favorite soup as a kid for lunches or when you had a cold? Let me know in the comments below.

Join me tomorrow when I post with Sunday Supper. The theme is easy after school snacks and I am excited to share my simple recipe for Apple Granola Cookie Butter toast. I hope to see you then!

  1. Sue, there’s just something so comforting about a bowl of tomato soup along with a grilled cheese sandwich! It makes me wonder if kids today enjoy it just as much as we did?
