Simple Tomato Soup Recipe

I enjoy tomato soup and so do two of my kids. I use it in some of the homemade soups that I make. I like Campbell's, but I prefer a little more flavor than just the canned soup gives me if I just want a bowl of tomato soup.

I experimented around with what I could add to it to give it a richer, more seasoned flavor and finally came up with the recipe below that I'm sharing with you. I hope you like it!

Tomato Soup Toppings

A lot of people enjoy adding a topping to their tomato soup. Some popular toppings in my house include chopped scallions, shredded cheese, Parmesan cheese and seasoned croutons.

Other suggestions include sour cream, oyster crackers, fresh chopped cilantro and, (the kids are going to love this,) popcorn.

What Goes With Tomato Soup?

Probably the most popular item to accompany tomato soup is a grilled cheese sandwich. A tuna salad sandwich is also recommended.

If you want bread, I suggest some garlic bread or French bread and butter. Of course, a fresh green salad is always nice to pair with tomato soup.

If you just feel like munching on something, try your favorite crackers. In my house that would be Ritz and Triscuits.

      A really extra sharp cheddar with tomato soup is amazing. Just drop in some cubes and enjoy.

      You did what my Mom called "doctoring up" the canned tomato soup and I think I can taste the difference from here. I love parmesan cheese on top of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich on the side...done with yum!

      Being a bachelor I open a can of Campbells soup quite a bit. I always have Tomato on hand. Thanks for the suggestion of croutons and shredded cheese. I think I will try it today. P.S. I put a slice of ham on my grilled cheese sandwich.
