Whether you are gluten free or just don’t like using canned soups, you will be so excited about this easy Tomato Soup Substitute.
Two of my favorite comfort foods call for canned tomato soup. I’m not completely against using condensed canned soups but I try to use them sparingly since they are high in sodium and preservatives. I save using the cans for when I am in a huge hurry and don’t have time to make my own substitute.
I needed a substitute for condensed tomato soup when I was making porcipine meatballs last week. I did a quick search on the internet and found this recipe. I used brown sugar instead of the white granulated sugar it called for and was shocked out how close to the real thing it tasted.
I’m really excited to have this recipe, and wanted to share it, asap!
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1 tbsp corn starch
- 1½ tbsp brown sugar
- ½ tsp salt
