    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is 100% better than any canned tomato soup! --- If you find that the soup is too thick for your liking you may thin out with more tomato juice during cooking if desired, I strongly suggest to use V-8 tomato juice for the best flavor, this soup will only improve in flavor the longer it is cooked and it tastes even better the next day, it also freezes well -------- LOW-FAT OPTION reduce the butter amount or use a healthy alternative such as Smart Balance Butter Blend and use fat-free milk or fat-free half and half

    2. 2

    3. 3

    5. 5
      Add in flour and stir for 1 minute.
    6. 6
      Slowly add in the tomato/milk mixture whisking constantly to remove any lumps; bring to a boil stirring frequently until bubbly and thickened, then season with sugar, salt and pepper (the mixture will be quite thick).
    7. 7
      Reduce heat to low, add in remaining 1 cup of tomato juice (or more) and simmer uncovered for 45 minutes to 1 hour (can simmer longer if desired, if the soup is still too thick for your liking add in more tomato juice and keep seasoning with salt and pepper if needed during cooking).

      Ive made this many times now. The first time I followed the recipe exactly & it was good. The 2nd time I omitted the tomato juice & used 3 cans of crushed tomatoes, then used a stick blender to puree it. It was utterly delicious! I now only make it with the crushed tomatoes (never with the juice) but I often add courgette - equally delicious!

      This is so wonderful. Everyone who thought tomato soup was the stuff that came from a can were so wrong. All of my family, some who swore that they hated it because of the canned variety, now know that they love tomato soup. Thank you so much Kittencal. When I see your name, I know it's a good recipe.

      Loved this soup! I made a batch for my parents, who are both sick with some kind of virus, and had enough for dinner for my family that night. It tastes so much fresher and healthier than canned soup. Served with green salad and grilled cheese for a complete meal.
