Almost Instant, "Cheater," Two-Ingredient Tomato Soup
  • 1⅓ cups tomato or tomato-based vegetable juice like V-8 (if you juice, you can use homemade versions)
  • ⅓ cup milk (dairy or non-dairy; I used this organic full-fat coconut milk)
  • Pinch of sweetener, like coconut sugar, if your soup tastes too bitter (optional)
  • Pinch of other seasonings like sea salt (needed when using fresh tomato juice), basil, onion powder, etc. (optional)
  1. Whisk ingredients together in a small pan and heat on stove top on medium low to medium, whisking or stirring constantly, until hot enough for serving.
  2. Serve in bowl, soup mug, or large coffee mug.
I have heated this soup in the microwave before, but I much prefer making it on the stove top. I don’t like it when the milk particles “separate” and that seems to happen more often with microwave heating.

If you’d like a thicker soup, feel free to substitute diced tomatoes for all or part of the tomato juice. Blend diced tomatoes, juice, and milk with an immersion blender, if needed.

If you need more soup, multiply measurements by number of servings needed.
