Tomato Soup Idea #1

I regularly come up with ideas for making soup more wholesome. I do this very cheaply, either by using leftovers or by purchasing items on sale. Sometimes, the entire meal is free. This happens when everything has come from the food cupboard and/or friends, or my garden.

Tomato soups are easy to make.

Try this variation:

1 can tomato soup

1 can milk or water



  1. Cook the broccoli and carrots in a sauté pan with a little EVOO until almost tender to the fork.
  2. Pour a can of tomato soup, 1 can of water or milk, and the vegetables into a saucepan.
  3. Warm on medium heat until the soup is at the desired temperature for eating.
  4. Pour into soup bowls and serve.


  • Try other vegetable combinations.
