Homemade Tomato Soup

I know what's in it and there are no preservatives


  • 2-8 oz. cans of tomato sauce with no salt added (even store brands work)
  • 8 oz. can of water
  • 8 oz. can of heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. beef base (I use Better That Bouillon)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt (I use Celtic sea salt)
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • Ad

  • 1/4 tsp. meat tenderizer (I use the kind without MSG)
  • 2 shakes of paprika
  • 3/8 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp. dried sweet basil


Mix all together, bring to boil and simmer at least 5 minutes. I let it simmer for about 20 minutes. It mixes the flavors well. This is delicious and the fat helps to slow the carbs from getting into the blood too fast and tastes fantastic.

I've tried it with tomato paste and no matter what I do, I can't get it to taste like the one with tomato sauce.

Servings: 24.5oz

This sounds like a good recipe. I was wondering why the meat tenderizer? (05/22/2009)
