When served with hot freshly cooked from refrigerated Tesco Garlic Bread
I apologize for being very specific - but I really think Tesco has the edge

It,s the only tinned soup I will eat, and always with something to dip in.xxx. As an afterthought, when I was at tech, chef showed us how to get that Heinz taste in our own tomato soup. We made blackjack and added that until we achieved the required taste. It,s a mixture of sugar and vinegar and you boil it up to make a dark syrup, keeps for ages.xxx tasted pretty much like the real stuff.xxx

Only if you have a mound of mash potato then pour the soup round it and you are 9! Lol! I would still love it now I suspect!x

Any tomato soup at all. Home made, Heinz, Campbells', Baxter's...bring it on. I'm with Diamond on the dipping. If I am very, very hungry and very, very lazy I will soft-boil or poach an egg and add it to the soup. Or cook the egg in the soup like they do in the north of Spain.

If I'm back at my parent's house and they are making some I'll eat it, but I never buy it, and this is coming from a student! For me it's got to be a yuck. Homemade all the way.

Haha... seriously though, it's overrated and overpriced. You could make something 10 times better with a tin of tomatoes, some stock and a bit of cream for around the same price, for more than just a couple of people too

I do and I agree but it does take you back to a nice warm woolly place...( more so when you can pretend the mash is a castle and the tom soup is a moat!) or is that just me?x

Can I come...I promise not to splash the ironing!?

Oh I do, all the time. I never actually buy tinned soup at all because the only ones we have here are Baxters and they are too expensive. I make my own.
Swirl of greek yogurt or sour cream is nice on top.

Very Simple Tomato Soup (my own recipe)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large carrot, finely diced
1 rib celery, finely diced
1/2 sweet red bell pepper, finely diced
1 medium onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup white wine
3 cups canned whole tomatoes, with juice
2 cups stock
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper, to taste
sour cream, to serve, optional
Sauté all vegetables with oil in a soup pot until they start to collapse and sweat.
Add wine, tomatoes, broth, and bay leaf; cover and simmer until veggies are tender.
Blitz with stick blender until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. You may need to add more stock if it's too thick.
If you want to get fancy, you can serve it with a dab of sour cream in each bowl.

Yum

I know we could all make our own but sometimes when it's cold and dark outside all you crave is a tin of Heinz tomato soup

Boil toast?

Is there a Vegetarian/Pescetarian alternative to the croutons? If so, can I come?

Boiled toast doesn't sound too appealing

Mrs Beeton mentions "milk toast" which is essentially boiled toast, but you're right Mrs P, doesn't sound too appetising. Back in those days they seemed to feed kids on bread soaked in hot milk, I suppose if the bread was better quality than we can get today it would be all right, but when you think about kids up in the nursery eating bread and milk while Mummy and Daddy stuffed their faces downstairs at a dinner party...doesn't seem fair.

My mum used to make 'pobs' for us when we were ill! Can't tell you how much I hated it. Bread soaked in sweet buttery milk. She thought it was a treat but we secretly dreaded it! Knowing my mum that was the plan, we wouldn't pretend to be ill in case we got pobs
