Tomato soup brings everyone back to childhood when our parents made us eat a healthy and nutritious meal that even those who didn’t like fresh tomatoes enjoyed.
Nowadays, everyone has a can of tomato soup handy. Although Campbell’s Tomato Soup is the perfect formula for making delicious tomato soup in just a few minutes, there is one way that you can make it even better. It’s milk.
The added touch changes the texture of your favorite soup by making it creamier and adds a delicious counterbalance to the tomato’s acidity. So, let’s have a look at how to make Campbell’s Tomato Soup with milk.
Why Is Tomato Soup Good for You?
Once you discover all the positive effects tomato soup can have on your health, you might even love it more, or if you haven’t already, you will start to appreciate it. 
Its star ingredient, tomato, boasts numerous vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals that may protect you from many diseases. The tomato soup provides you with all that, and it warms you up during winter days or refreshes you during summer.
Not only is this soup low in calories, but it is also high in vitamins C, E, K, and A, as well as antioxidants, flavonoids, and lycopene, the latter known for reducing the risk of prostate and breast cancers. Besides, cooked tomatoes are believed to have a more potent effect than raw ones.
In addition, lycopene can make your bones stronger, while carotenoids and vitamin C reduce some risk factors for heart disease.
How to Make Campbell’s Tomato Soup with Milk?
Campbell’s Tomato Soup already enjoys the title of one of the most popular canned soup variations, but if you want to make it even creamier, adding milk instead of water will help you achieve that quickly and easily. Let’s take a look at what else we need to prepare this delicious soup.
- Campbell’s Tomato Soup – Well, you can make tomato soup without it. One can is enough.
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Flour to make a base for the milk and thicken it a bit.
- Sugar – An indispensable ingredient for any tomato sauce or soup that counteracts the acidity of the tomatoes.
- Milk and Water – If you are really here for the creaminess, choose whole milk since low fat or skim simply won’t give the soup the best texture and flavor.
- Salt and Pepper – These are the only seasonings this soup needs since it already comes with some spices in the can.
Now, only a few simple steps are left, and the delicious Campbell’s tomato soup with milk is ready to be enjoyed.
Step 1: Preparing the Base for the Soup
Starting with a simple base, you will need to place the saucepan on medium to low heat and add some olive oil. Once it is hot, slowly start adding the flour while constantly stirring. Do that for about half a minute, then pour in the milk and water while you keep the stirring going.
Step 2: Adding the Tomato Soup and Seasoning
Add the tomato soup to the pan and season it with a pinch of salt and pepper. Wait until the soup starts to boil, and then leave it for another minute. You can always adjust the flavor by adding a bit more pepper or salt or maybe opting for some paprika to spice it up more.
What to Serve with Campbell’s Tomato Soup with Milk?
Every soup, especially that creamy one, is made better when served with crusty bread or croutons. Why not spread a bit of a garlic paste on top if you are a garlic fan or some melted butter just for pleasure?
Put some fresh basil leaves on top, or grill some cheese with a drizzle of olive oil and serve it on the side.
