Tomato soup is rightly a classic, but can be so much more than the canned cream of tomato that we all remember from childhood. Whether you have a summer glut or a handy can, these fabulous tomato soup recipes are all your need.
Tomato soup is surely one of everyone’s childhood favourites. Who doesn’t remember tucking into a big bowl of the ubiquitous smooth orange liquid that came out of a can marked Heinz or Campbells, like the Andy Warhol painting?
These brands are so strongly associated with tomato soup that you can actually buy tomato seed varieties named after them. There’s so much more to tomato soup, though, than that classic cream soup in a can.
