3 stars from 7 ratings of Rosa's Creamy Tomato Soup

I love tomato soup, especially with a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s one of those comfort foods from my childhood that I’ve clung to right to this day. Campbell’s was always my favourite because it was so creamy, but when I discovered that I had Celiac Disease, I had to find another brand that didn’t use wheat as a thickener. For some reason, those other brands just never tasted as good and tomato soup just disappeared from our cupboards.

Today, I made a happy (accidental) discovery for my own tomato soup recipe and I just had to share. It began with me trying to get a jump start on supper. I was trying to figuring out what meals I can make with my crock pot so that I spend less time standing over a hot stove or sink full of dishes. I pulled out some left over chickpeas, a jar of our home-made tomato sauce and other miscellaneous items. I figured I’d whip it all together in the crock pot with some chicken and seasoning, then walk away for a few hours to see what happened.

I never got the ingredients from the blender to the crock pot. My husband isn’t fond of chickpeas. I love them. So, we have an agreement: if I can incorporate chickpeas into a dish without him being able to identify them … Well, okay. It’s not really an agreement so much as a personal challenge that I occasionally tackle …

But, I digress. Let’s just say that the blender results were so amazingly delicious, that I skipped the crock pot and enjoyed this yummy treat instead.

      Sounds yummy, and the chickpeas are a good way to add some protein into a simple soup. Thanks for this idea - I will give it a go.

      @ KawikaChann - LOL! Well, they say our tastes change as we get older, but I've found that sometimes, it's a simple matter of how the food was prepared for us as kids. I didn't know I liked lamb until it was made "properly" for me :-)

      @ Bill Yovino - Hope you enjoy it!

      Sounds great! I'm with you on the grilled cheese and tomato soup thing. I guess chick peas would work as a thickener for gravy as well. I will definitely give this a try. Thanks!
