Creamy Tomato Soup Recipe

A couple of friends and I had been talking tomato soup so it stuck in my mind on what I could come up with in a couple minutes – out came the bulging bins of trail food. And in a few minutes time I had a cup of soup perfect for a cold day. Just add a cheese and onion roll for a meal!

I have included the three main methods for making the soup on the trail. It is a thick soup and would work well as a sauce over couscous or pasta. Adding a 7-ounce pouch of chicken will make a full meal for two, when used as a sauce.

Pack in a pint freezer or sandwich bag, adding in 1 Tbsp Bac’uns or similar fake bacon before sealing the bag.

  1. Sounds good, I’ve been wanting to make a tomato soup to dehydrate for awhile. This would take the work out of that, but I think I’ll just go with my original plan so I know it’ll taste how I want it to.
